Summary: I was originally give a pair of these headphones in JULY 2013 as a gift and for the 1st 4 months they worked perfectly and I had no complaints however in November the right ear bud stopped working. the inline control still worked however there was just no sound from the earbud.
Summary: Initially a great purchase. Can't comment on the quality compared to other earphones as I'm no audio expert, but I was definitely happy with the sound. After about a month the sound died in one ear, then in the other ear a week later.
