Top critical review
EDIT: THIS SUCKS. Don't waste your money.

I wrote this review yesterday or the day before. Today, they have completely stopped working. I could scream. I have work to do but can't do it w/out my HEADPHONES!!! I hear a low tone, some background music or something. People's speech isn't being picked up. Release the profanities.
I am having the worst run of luck w/Amazon purchases. The item I received before this was faulty to the point of being unusable. Now this.
I needed headphones to replace my current ones as I'd rode them 'til the wheels fell off. Happened upon this deal on Prime Day and scooped it up. Within one day (just a few hours of use) the volume control on the headphone string stopped working. A couple times I've hit the jack and the sound has popped, something that is generally a warning for impending doom.
I'm happy these were so cheap when I got them (maybe $12 or so). The sound is great otherwise and I can wear them for a couple hours before my ears start hurting. I'll use them until they fall apart (hoping to get at least a month out of them) and then buy a different brand.
I'm hard on electronics. Due to that, I gave this three stars. My first impulse was to give it two (a piece being broken w/in a day) but because I tend to treat things rougher than intended, I rounded up to three. I wouldn't recommend buying this to anyone though, because I can't recommend a product that starts falling apart the first day it is used, no matter if I fell asleep w/them on my head or not. ;)
