Most painful headphones ever (despite a normal sized head).
2 weeks ago
Summary: I had some panasonic retro look over ear headphones for about 2 and a half years and they were absolutely fantastic, so much so when they died I went out and bought some new headphones right away. Looks are a factor for me and I only had about 40 to spend, so I got these (I was actually in a french department store fnac), I did test them out in store and the sound is fairly decent for everyday use but oh dear... I had them one week and HAD to return them.
Summary: I do really like the style. I think they fit perfectly but I have a small head. The initial sound quality was really good but the first pair I had died after a few months. I got a second pair from my warranty and was even more careful with these. The sound started going a few months later. I gave up after that. If they had a replaceable cord I might have given them another go as I do really like how snug they are on my head.
Great Headphones, poor life expectancy and customer service

Summary: These headphones are great out of the box with a sleek and innovative design. I loved the microphone and extra headphone jack so your friends can connect. The sound was also pretty decent given the price. HOWEVER. 3 months after I started using them the sound abruptly cut off in the right headphone. The sound would sputter back to life if I fiddled with the cable but the poor connection meant the sound was constantly cutting in and out.
Summary: Was initially very pleased with them: good bass, clean sound, foldable design makes them easy to stow, and they fit tight enough to wear with the band down around the back of my neck (rather than over the head), which is how I personally prefer to wear headphones. Also, they did a good enough job of blocking other noise out-- not like ear buds, but close enough without having to crank the music too loud. Unfortunately, it looks like they don't last.
Summary: I bought these as after having some expensive bose headphones that failed after 2.5 years I thought I would buy a cheaper pair. Anyway within days I noticed that the volume was altering as I was listening to music. I left it a while, thought it was perhaps me but then noticed it again. I thought it was the app I was using on my ipad and so tried using the default music player, same thing, intermittent changing of the volume.
Summary: My INITIAL DELIGHT with product, particularly liked the additional port facility which allows another set of headphones to plug into them to share music etc - was followed by utter disappointment when, after only 7 days of light use they stopped working.......... However, as usual, amazon were amazing in their customer service and returning them and receiving a refund was easy and straightforward.
