Excerpt: Bought these headphones to upgrade over generic iphones ones. Good sound except the craftsmanship on these is terrible. The plastic headpiece/band is terrible and broke on me way to easily. I would not recommend these to anyone. I gave JBL a shot but now will never buy a product from them again.
Excerpt: I have owned these headphones for a year and they were repaired 3 times during this period. Leather parts of ear cushions which are glued together started to come off. Big disappointment for this price.
Excerpt: I tried about 50 models and these were the best quality/price for my mobile phone (a Sony, one that has a great music capability). I love the sound and the confort.
The problem is the quality of the plastic head-band. I broke two in almost the same place in less than a year (the 1st broke, I repaire them and gave them to a friend, bough another one and in less than 10 months, it also broke when I was simply putting it over my head). I always took very care of them.
Excerpt: Bought these 2 months ago and due to the fact I have many headphones these got very little use. I own other AKG, JBL & Harmon headphones and these are the most disappointed I have been with almost any headphone(especially build). There sound to me was subpar too. They felt fragile from day 1 and 60 days later I go to use and as I unfolded the left driver just fell off the headphone onto the floor!!!
Excerpt: When I bought these headphones I was initially impressed by the quality of the sound. however after less than 1 month the plastic in the top piece cracked on both sides. these headphones were only used at home and never subjected to any kind of stress.
Excerpt: Poor quality! The headphones lasted for around 4-5 months before the ear cushions started to tear and small cracks appeared on the plastic parts. Really disappointed! From what I see from other reviews I'm not the only one with the same problem.
Excerpt: I tried quite a few headphones. Most of them were of terribe quality and I exchanged them for a pair of J55. I was pleased with the quality and used them constantly for audio production at home or for enjoyment. The fact that the cable is detachable is great, and I never had an issue with the cable wearing out - a cause of frustration with countless pairs of headphones in the past.
