Excerpt: I used the 50/50's for $50 in a very careful and conservative manner. I do not twist and bend or yank the cord. Regardless, sooner or later one earbud stops working. The first time it happened I took them back and having purchased the $8 protection plan they were replaced (with a new protection plan added). The second time it happened I was concerned...
Cons: ~ 3 Months In They Die, 3 Months In They Die, 50 Headphones Should La, Break very easily, Dont Last More Than 3 Mon, Flimsy Construction, Poor Value
Broke after 2 month and Returns process is very poor and still didn't get a refund or replacement.

Summary: Had these Headphones for over 2 months and the one ear phones stopped working. I explained this to the seller and they said the would replace it if I could return these in the post (2nd Class post which they recommend) and they could test them (What happen to trusting the customers judgement). Anyway, I did send these back but not in 2nd Class but 1st Class Post. After 2 weeks I had not heard anything so I chased the seller.
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. I was given a gift card refund by amazon and decided just to replace them like for like and ordered another pair. So here we are and after another 4 months and the same problem has happened again.
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.
