Pros: Ive owned these headphones for about 4 years. These light weight headphones are built to last. Extended use and storage in my pack does not warp the band. The cloth cord material prevents tangling and allows them to be packed up neatly. The length is also ideal.
Cons: The reflective material on the back of the band is nice but it does flake away.
Summary: -The elastic cable safety guard does not safe you from big yanks, although that is to be expected.
Pros: I owned a pair of these about 10 years ago and they have made some great advances in the hardware. Just tested these new ones with my reference speakers, and they are surprisingly flat considering their slim profile and excellent price
Cons: -Thin, yet woven cord could be prone to really, really bad knots if you keep your cable disorganized.
Summary: I totally recommend these headphones. It's pretty crazy but it's the 3rd time I bought these haha 2nd time was because I liked them so much. Then I recently tried earbuds but returned them 2 days later just to get these for a 3rd time. They last about one to one and a half years. And you can wear them for hours and they still won't get uncomfortable.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
