Summary: I have to echo Graeme Jenkins review above. These are excellent in every way bar one - as soon as I moved, there was an unbearable rubbing sound in the earphones as the cloth covered cable rubbed against my clothes. It totally ruined the experience. I've returned these and will try others.
Summary: It looks like my experience is similar to quite a few other reviewers'. The first pair I received was faulty; every so often I would lose all bass and just get some weak, tinny highs coming through. RHA replaced this set very quickly. The replacement pair lasted about 10 months before losing sound in the left ear. Again, these were replaced quickly. That replacement pair lasted another 10 months and then did exactly the same thing.
Summary: Mine had a short in the switch, leading random volume changes, voice control activation and track skipping, which is infuriating and hence they are being returned. I will not be replacing them with the same type because: The fabric braided cords seem to actually increase the tangling, and certainly make it harder to untie knots in the cord. It does make it significantly stronger however.
Great sound upgrade from default iPhone 5 headphones while they lasted
1 April 2014
Summary: I chose these set of headphones because of the good reviews for there sound quality and the 3 year warranty coupled with Amazon's excellent customer service. The headphones were great and worked fine for a week until the right headphone (where the remote is) stopped working when the cable was moved and the remote was moved. I got this set returned to Amazon and they sent out a pair before I even returned my set.
Summary: The quality of the sound is very very good and impressive. but the downside is the movement sound that is transferred from the cable to the speakers. It sounds like a storm everytime when there is a movement i.e. when I move my neck or turn around, lifting up my shirt, scarf and everything. so I decided to return it. What a shame!
Summary: I can say I'm not entirely satisfied with the headphones. I'm a Banker myself and I ONLY use these headphones on my desk. I don't even take them outside. The condition on the floor is always cool and controlled and there isn't anyone using or abusing items on your desk. Last year I bought a pair of these and after just 2-3 months, the left earphone started to malfunction. It just didn't work anymore.
Summary: Got these headphones back in July 2013, now its November and it has already developed a fault (I can only hear in mono), I can't fault Amazon though as I contacted them and they replaced it strait away. I am just not impressed with the brand breaking after only 4 months. Br aware.
Summary: Ive used these headphones before and they lasted a long time until they just wore out which is fine, nothing last forever ect. I decided to get the same again but was disappointed this time. They've lasted just over 2 weeks before the left headphone has reduced in audio output dramatically. Basically the left headphone no longer works properly, but the right is fine.
Summary: I am disappointed in this product for three reasons: 1. When I plugged it into my iPhone 3GS, I could hear music but the controls did not work. Then I discovered that I had to apply high pressure on the plug to make it engage in the iPhone socket better. This increased volume and restored full functionality. This suggests that the plug is not well made as I have not had a similar problem with any other headset.
