Summary: I bought these in late 2012, and they barely lasted a year before the cable started coming apart. For the price point, this is disappointing. I had to hold them together with tape and superglue to keep them going! The mic is essentially useless. It functions as an inline control which I guess is handy but you simply cannot use it outdoors. It just picks up wind noise and no-one will hear what you're saying if you try to use it hands-free, even in still conditions.
Summary: First off I'll start by explaining why this product didn't get a 1 star review - the sound quality is great for the price, I usually buy cheaper headphones around the £25 mark and the first thing I noticed with these is the big jump in sound quality. However you should NOT mistake this for a positive review. For a £40+ plus set of headphones you expect a decent lifespan - mine lasted a just slightly over 3 months before one ear stopped working entirely.
Summary: The sound quality is good, and the cables appear well made, but the remote click switch is poor. From the start it was rather spongy, difficult to double-click without it being mistaken as two single-clicks, and after three months of pretty light use it has failed completely. This also stops the microphone working so I will be attempting to return it. The oval tips also seem to fit one ear better than the other.
