Summary: Agree with others on the terrible build quality. Great sound when working, but after 8 months I had to get a replacement pair as they stopped working. Exactly the same issue now, after another 6 months.
Summary: I was worried about how long these would last as previously a pair of sennheisers have only lasted me days. 6 months later and they are still functioning perfectly though! They are comfortable to wear and I am pleased with the sound quality; they drown out the London Underground on a daily basis and...

Summary: These are very good headphones, even without taking into account the price. I break my headphones alot at work, so have had many sets ( at least 20 so far) and these sound as good as the see beats I had. Clear precise treble and a nice deep rounded bass. Comfortable to wear too.
Summary: I have used a different model of sennheiser headphone before (cx150) and they were great! Lasted about 2 years, but when it came to replacing them I went with these as they were a bit cheaper, big mistake.
Summary: Love these earphones, great bass sound without detracting from any other sound quality. The wires are equal lengths so no long and short leads, which, from other reviews, users didn't like. They are really noise cancelling, I use them whilst on my bike and I don't experience too much wind noise.
Summary: I had these for less than 3 months before one of the ear-buds stopped working. Now to be honest I'm used to this problem (has happened often over the years) but I expect at least 6 months before failure. At least on the pair I use daily. That can't be too much to ask. Sound quality was good enough.
Summary: these are good earphones, excellent sound quality,max volume is very high. Bass is also good but i found treble a bit on the higher side, sometimes the treble can hurt your ears but the burn-in period is still not over so I am expecting that they will sound better with time.
Summary: Can't comment on the longer term durability as I just bought these, however the sound is brilliant. Just swapped from some Sony in-ear and you can't even compare, these are so much better. Big bass, just the way I like it.
Summary: I enjoy listening to music but have never invested much money into headphones or speakers because quite honestly I never really believed there could be much more improvement to sound from a pair of cheap headphones. I guess if you never experience great sound, you don't know just what your missing.
