Incredibly durable, and Great audio quality.
on October 20, 2014
Most durable set of in-ear headphones I have ever owned. Any set I get, with out fail, ends up demolished within 3-5 months.
This is not without reason. I out of habit tie and untie knots in the cords while listening to music, to the point where the material of the wires will get white stretch marks.(wreaking havoc on the cables inside no doubt) I listen to music with the device they are plugged into in my pocket which leads to violent and repetitive creasing of the cable at the point where it meets the audio jack. I chew on the cables. Some of my devices have very strong gripping audio ports so I might swing them around in circles by the headphone cord. I sleep with my headphones and 100% of the time wake up tangled in them and with them never in my ears.(perhaps the worst of all the things I do to my headphones)
I do all of this and more to this pair and they are still going strong nearing a year of use.
The audio quality is incredible, no doubt, but don't expect mind blowing bass. These are above average for in-ear but in-ear can never compare to around-ear high bass headphones.
neutral:They block outside noise. Don't expect to be able to multitask listening to music and listening to anything else, at least with both earbuds in. these are my wonderful blissful escape from the world.
Cons: They are huge and not discrete at all. While nowhere near as bad as being the dude that walks around in public with around ear headphones on, it's still pretty bad how far these stick out of your ears and looks kind of funny.
I think I might lose all of the ear rubber fitting pieces before the headphones actually fail. They fall off kind of easy and I have no idea where to get replacements. I long ago lost both of the ones that actually fit well and as I'm typing this review I actually have to only use one of the earbuds because I just lost the fitting rubber piece for the other one on my way to this building. If anyone reading this knows where to get more I would appreciate if you could let me know!
Update: It's been a couple more months of continued abuse. I'm almost out of the rubber ear inserts that go on the ear pieces. My last ones are torn to bits. Headphones still kicking full power. FYI I never listen to music much past 50% volume with these things in so if you are one that likes to destroy your hearing for the rest of your life and keep it at 100% I unfortunately cannot tell you whether the headphones would blowout or not.
