Braided cord = fail
on May 30, 2011
I got these a few months ago because I listen to podcasts at work and the over the ear style works well for me. They are very comfortable and the sound is fine. The ear loops are bendable, so you can adjust them for comfort.
The real problem with these headphones is the braided cord. You would think that the rope-like sleeve would make the wire extra-durbable, but for some reason, the wire works its way out of the sleeve. The wire inside seems to kink up inside the sleeve, too. I've tried to gently work the wire back in, but it won't go.
Before you buy these, check the rating on Rockefish's own website, which links to a big box stores reviews. The cord problem seems to be a very common defect. Unfortunately, while they look and feel good, these headphones are a waste of money.
