Summary: I have had these headphones for a little over 7 months. Let me start by saying I enjoyed the sound quality these headphones produces. Many of the reviews here cover the sound aspect so my review won't cover that. The twisted cable is good for rigidity and dampened some of the rustling sounds when the cable hits your clothes. It dampens that sound even more when worn properly, cable over the ear like instructed. However the twisted cable is a weak point at the input jack.
