Summary: When they work they are great but my second pair has just broken today after 8 months use. The first pair lasted a bit less before being replaced by Amazon. Now I'm told that they are out of warranty and I'm livid. Both times one ear stops working and if you wiggle the cable close to the adaptor it works for a second. There is clearly a serious weakness close to the adaptor plug. I couldn't have been any more gentle with them and they look like new! Grrr.

Summary: While these headphones have remained operational through wind, rain and sweat, they don't hold up when running, thus becoming worthless for my use. One of the ear pieces will persistently edge out of position, not only failing as headphones, but also distracting from exercise. What I want from a product like this is a way to listen to music while keeping focused on exercise and these generally disappoint.
Summary: This is actually my 2nd purchase of these headphones, and IMHO, are a good balance between the pricier Sennheisers (which are nice, but the earpiece rubbers on them are rubbish and aren't great bang for the buck) and the Urbanz (robust, cheap but the sound is awful). They're very comfortable, flexible and fit well, and the different sized earpiece rubbers should provide a level of customisation for whatever ear shape.
Summary: I rarely spend over £25 for headphones as I only use them down the gym and they get pretty sweaty. as these are waterproof and can be rinsed I thought they'd be perfect. I read all the reviews and thought they'd be value for money. from day one I found that the left ear bud would slip out my ear. I assume this was due to the stupidly short lead, who knows. I percevered with them despite the irritation.
Summary: I bought these a few weeks ago and Im already looking for a different set. They are so flimsy, the right bud wont stay in my ear. I find myself wakling the dog with one hand held against my right ear holding the bud in. The weight of the cable on the left pulls the headset out of shape.
Summary: Bought these to replace my old Philips neckband headphones. Took them back to the shop for a full refund a few days later!. Tried them out - very tinny/cheap sounding, plus had an echo sound in one ear when running. No complaint with Argos at all - very helpful.
