Finally, excellent headphone design!

 

I'm glad to have bought these headphones. Finally, someone understands the importance of design in making a high-quality, durable product. I read the reviews, but when they arrived today and I saw that the box came with a preview flap that held...

Well, I've had them for less than an hour, so I can't comment on durability from experience. But even so, headphones usually die a death from fraying where the wire meets the stiff sheath of the plug. Given the design I've seen so far, I'm expecting it...

Broken after only 6 months

 

These were a comfortable experience but not durable. I'm not likely to buy another pair again.

Very comfortable in ear design. Nice long cord and secure fit with great sound, and as a nice side bonus they never seem to tangle. You pay a premium for these headphones and if you don't put them through their paces they're likely going to make you...

After using these for six months the long cord has a break that causes the sound to cut in and out. I went searching for replacement cords but it looks like if i want to get them functioning again I'm going to have to pay for a whole new pair

Works for me!

 

I've found my new workout headphones!

Never falls out of ears (once properly fitted) ; Sound quality is acceptable ; Cable length is variable (thanks to handy included 5mm audio extensions) ; Look cool ; Can hear stuff around me ; Not dead on arrival (good QA)

Pricey

Worth Every Penny!

 

I am not an audiophile but someone who like their music to sound good. This set of earphones really impress me and I am 100% satisfied with my purchase!

The ear pieces are very comfortable soft rubber. It seemed to direct the audio into my ear canal like no other earphones I have ever used. The bass is magnificent and loud! The audio quality was second to none

The ribbon cable is not the easiest to manage but it seems durable though. The short cable was too short and long cable too long for my use. I like to clip my cell phone to my waist band and listen to Pandora when I exercise. I was able to find a way...

Really like my new headphones. They stay in while running the mower and with their design I can hear my music.

Will get another pair, the sound quality is great and there is no ear irritation. Wish I would have tried these awhile ago.
