Summary: I bought these only because my daughter said she didn't really like the one 'over the ear'. On Christmas Day, she was very disappointed because none of the earbuds fit her ears (she is 11 years old). Needless to say, I returned them without any problem to the local store and purchased the Dr Dre Beats Mixr....yes, I paid more, but I have one happy little girl now....and these fit perfectly and are adjustable for just her size!
Summary: I received a pair and the sound was good but they were not very durable. Within only a couple days, the sound from the buds would pop on and off from ear to ear.... (I found by giggling the wires around the volume/mic area, something was not making full contact.) One thing I noticed is that they do not bond or seal the wire to the switch case on each end for durability. It's just a loose wire entering the plastic shell through a hole and they solder in the wires.
Summary: These headphones are about name brand, not quality. If you're going for look, you can't beat that little "b" on the side of your head. If you're looking for quality, keep shopping.
Pros: The cord on these headphones is nice. They are stylish and the overall design esthetic is good. The sound was clear and they had good bass for earbuds.
Cons: A few things: 1.) After 2 months of use, one side suddenly got super quiet. It still works, but barely. It doesn't appear to be an electrical fault because jiggling the cord anywhere does not affect the sound coming out. After researching, this appears to be a common issue with these headphones. The speaker becomes blown and is not covered under their "warranty" (I put that in quotes because it's pretty pathetic, go look for yourself). I do not play music overly loud ...
Summary: I bought these for everyday use. I drive 800+ miles a week, so i figured i would buy a good pair of earbuds. After 2 months, the button and mic quit working, then the next 2 days both ears quit working. I wouldn't recommend these, ill be going with Audio Technica or Bose.
Summary: I bought these headphones for my daughter for Christmas, 4 months ago, when she started using them, she said they are the best she ever had, the sound was great!b but now there is a shortage in the ear buds, at the price i paid i expected them to last a lot longer, the $10.00 ones lasted longer, now i'm having trouble finding out if the warranty is still active, i didn't purchase any extra care warranty. hopefully, they will let me exchange them.
Summary: On my second pair in less than 12 months and they've broken again. Sounds gone in one ear. I think it's because the jack plug is so small, that you inadvertently use the wiring to unplug. Which over time causes the wire inside to break. Wouldn't recommend if you're a frequent user.
Summary: Thought of writing my review just after my 2nd replacement ( in a span of 1 year) started losing sound "again" of one of the earpiece because of its poor cable problem near the jack which is very sensitive when bended. They need to sort this problem before all of their customer and customer to be will shift to other brand. Its a shame coz it produce a good sound though.
Really wanted this product because of sound quality, design ...

Summary: Really wanted this product because of sound quality, design etc. the truth is, as with many other buyers they're gone after 3 months. First the mic breaks, then the left headphone and soon enough it's nothing.
