Excerpt: This item was purchased as a gift for my daughter age 10. The rubber or foam around the area that covers the ear dropped off by the second day. We used tape to hold it together. The headphone's sound was good, but it's construction, particularly the one we purchased was extremely poor. We expected much more for $59.00.
Summary: I originally bought the headphones and considered them very good. The sound was excellent although, as with all headphones, they do not cancel the surrounding noise but do reduce it. After thirteen months both sides of the headband cracked. Fortunately I had taken out an extended warranty. Thinking I was just unfortunate I ordered another set. The same thing happened after 6 months.
