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.
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.
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: 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.
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.
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.
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: Die Klangqualität dieses Kopfhörers ist mehr als enttäuschend. Die Höhen verzerren unglaublich. Für klassische Musik ist das Gerät nicht zu gebrauchen. Ich habe es zurückgeschickt. Außerdem ist das Anschlusskabel viel zu kurz. Man müsste direkt vor dem PC sitzen um den Hörer nutzen zu können.
