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. Very disappointing as I was buying as a birthday present for my son.
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.
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. Weird that they are being called 'urban'; they aren't suited to urban use except to save your life (and your hearing, see below).
Summary: I own a set of RHA SA-850s. I've worn them pretty much every day for a year now and they're brilliant. I tried my girlfriend's urbanears out last weekend, they're much the same size, both have fabric cable and both are black. I like the styling of the urbanears, its pretty minimal. But I was so surprised at how poor the sound quality was compared to the RHAs. Like day and night. I've since bought her a set of the RHA SA-500s, and she absolutely loves them.
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. I love the look, the single tone is great, the plastic and headband feel well built and the materials are high quality and of a good finish. I also found them a great novelty to use with my iPhone.
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.
Summary: Ich hatte vorher auch den Plattan von urbanears. Entweder ist die Produktion von Urbanears sehr schlecht geworden, oder aber das ist kein Original! Die Soundqualität ist schlecht und mit dem vorherigen Modeelgleichen Kopfhörer ist nicht vergleichbar!!
Summary: Ich habe den Kopfhörer ausgiebig beim Sport getestet; er hat leider nicht lange standgehalten. Pro: Tragekomfort, Design, kompakt zusammenfaltbar für die Jackentasche Contra: Mangelnde Qualität der Verarbeitung von Verbindungsstücken und Steckern, sehr Empfindlich an den Kontakten Fazit: Schöner modischer Designerartikel den es in vielen Farben gibt, aber für Sport absolut nicht brauchbar. Support ist auch schlecht.
Excerpt: Ostin itse kyseisen tuotteen noin viikko sitten. Kuulokkeiden äänenlaatu on ihan hyvä, kuulokkeet myös näyttävät hyvältä päässä. Kuulokkeiden johto on myös todella hyvä, ei mene helposti solmuun, joka on mielestäni iso plussa. Huonoja puolia kuulokkeissa ovat mielestäni esimerkiksi se, että kun kuulokkeita on pitänyt noin 1-2 tuntia korvissa, korvat puutuvat tämän jälkeen helposti.
