Item advertised as new had previously been opened and packaging was tatty

Summary: The item arrived promptly, but I was very disappointed with the quality of the item. The box had clearly been opened before and was tatty. I suspect this item had been returned at some point. I would not have purchased this item in this state from a shop.
Summary: I purchased the Urbanears Plattan Headphones because I prefer over ear headphones and wanted something that was more of a fashion accessory. DESIGN I'm always listening to music on my iPhone, I'm fairly particular when comes to what I purchase in how it's constructed/designed and how it looks,...
Summary: Just bought a pair of these headphones, listened to a few songs and the sound quality is terrible at a low volume; it sounds like the music is being played under water. They do have give out a good bass but its quite over powering and that's not the sort of head phone I am looking for.
The sound quality is not great, it's bearable at best

Summary: I can see the appeal for them although i never use them anymore. The sound quality is not great, it's bearable at best. They become extremely uncomfortable after about 15 minutes of use. They make you look like a twat is you wear them anywhere else but your home.
Summary: The sound quality is great on these headphones, very satisfied with the product. However they only lasted 3 months before one side stopped working. In the process of getting them replaced currently. For the money I would've expected them to last at least a year.
Summary: I wanted some trendy, good looking headphones, to wear mainly all day at my office desk and then also 'around the town' on the bus/train etc. These looked perfect, and when they arrived I thought they were great.
Nice enough sound but with a problem 'artifact' and poor isolation

Summary: For urban, portable use, these headphones sure will save you from being run over as you'll fairly clearly be able to hear that car approaching: these phones have little isolation. If noisy underground trains or buses is your daily urban fare, then perhaps you should consider something else.
Summary: It is desinged in a very nice way and comfortable to wear. Good sound. However there allways seems to be a crackling noise when the cord/jack moved. I assume its the integrated mic thats the issue. It will automatically pause whatever your lisenting to. Had to refurn for a refund!
Summary: Lovely headphones, but the colour is absolutely not as represented. I clearly ordered 'tomato' coloured headphones, but the headphones that I have received are more of a neon coral colour. They are absolutely not the warm, cherry red represented in this photo. Be wary.
Summary: I'm on my second set of these and I'm really torn, because I love a number of things about the headphones: - Great value - Great sound (night and day compared with £120 Beats) - Good design (look great, fold neatly) However, the build quality is just not there.
