Recommend Product: No
Pros: Sound, Fit, stays in place
Cons: Durability, comfort, Volume control
First is the stupidly placed volume control that when removed leaves you with a one foot cord that can only be plugged into an arm strap. When trying to workout with this you have to clip it awkwardly onto the neck of your shirt if you don't want it flopping around.
Second, is the comfort of the earpiece. The yellow rubber around the ears fell off after about two weeks and now I can't wear the headphones for more than a couple hours without my ear throbbing.
Lastly, and most importantly is the quality. After 10 months they have begun shorting out. At this point I will gladly pay hundreds of dollars for headphones with some sort of long term guarantee. For now, I sit and dream of the day when I can own headphones for more than a year without them quitting on me.
Any suggestions of headphones that are more durable are welcome
