Summary: I hadn't heard of anyone else having a problem like this with their creative headphones so maybe it's an isolated incident. I like creative and didn't think that their product would do this... I will contact them to see if they can remedy this some way.
Pros: started off well when I received it, did everything I expected it to. Good sound and comfortable to wear, cable did not often get tangled.
Cons: suddenly broke today. I was listening to music and decided to go play a video game so I removed the plug but only half came out!
Summary: Perfection. I was looking for a cheap headset to use with my iPod. I had just gotten rid of a pair of Creative ear-buds because the wire frayed but I decided to go with Creative again because they are masters of sound. So far, it has paid off.
Pros: Lightweight, little to no distortion at higher volumes, wonderful response, a typical creative product.
Summary: i bought a Zune and needed headphones because I don't like earbud types that come with the Zune. After reading the one review that was favorable I bought them due to that and low price. What a killer set of 'phones and only 22 buck (even less now)!
Pros: Great sound, lightweight yet durable, price!
