I've had this set for almost 2 years now. I have been very happy with just about everything. However I now have to replace them.
The sliver part where the headband meets the ear cups has fallen apart. Slowly over time the pivoting motion allowed by the design wore down the plastic, starting with hairline cracks that slowly developed into full breaks (despite my best superglue efforts).
While the pivoting is crucial for comfort, the plastic chosen for the design should have been much more durable.
I'll still give this 3 stars though. Even though I have no proof of purchase, they were willing to repair these for a flat $30 charge. In my mind I'd rather just replace than pay 30% of the of the price for a repair.
I am considering the 595's but the similarity in design scares me.
