Excerpt: I have had many earphones/headphones over the years - my last pair went through the washing machine twice before finally going deaf in one ear. Generally, the £9.99 band of earphones don't last very long around me. Even more so for earphones that travel around with me to be used with my mobile.
Pros: Trusted brand, excellent sound quality, interesting integrated features
Cons: Seemingly exclusive to the Android brand, intermittent usefulness of the remote button
