Summary: On the surface, these look like they would be a step up from the $5 foam earpiece head sets I used to buy my kids. They are getting older and wanted a "better quality" headphone to use for their computer lab at school and with their ipads. They seem sturdy and have nice cushy padding around the ears. However I bought 2 for my twins and after a 10 day vacation BOTH of them just quit working, within 2-3 days of each other.
Summary: The padding around the speakers makes for a comfortable wear, and stereo headphone-like sound. What's also unique is only one cord between the headset and your device (rather than 1 per ear). My last set broke after about 2 years of use (one speaker went bad) BUT for $15, I did get my money's worth and took my chances on a new pair.
Summary: I purchase a pair of these about a year ago and within 6 months they went out on me. Thought it was because I used them so much - but honestly I leave them sit on my desk - they are NEVER moved or stuffed into a bag, they stay plugged into my laptop while I work I watch shows. Bought another pair 2 months ago and now they are going out too. VERY unhappy with the purchases. When I spend $15.00 I do actually expect at least 6-8 months use out of them.
Summary: I've had these for about a month and this morning, the left side stopped working, followed by the right side about an hour later. They're comfortable for a little while, but not so much after a couple hours. They also sit rather awkwardly, so that I can hear a lot of noise going on in my home, which means half the time I sit with my head cocked to one side, pinning the headphones between my ear and my shoulder to cancel out the background noise.
Summary: Pros: For the price you get a great sounding headphones that challenge the more expensive brands and in a relatively small size. Cons: Some will find that wearing them for long periods will make your ears hurt, not from the sound but from the pads on the outside. Though they are relatively small for on ear headphones they aren't very compact for travel. From my experience the plug has a tendency to short out after a few months of use.
Summary: These headphones are incredible. The sound is amazing and for the price that I paid for them I truly did not expect them to be so good. These headphones are better then some of those high priced name brands. I will be buying a few more pairs for myself as well as give them out as gifts.
