Didn't last too long

Great sound, comfortable, fancy wood!
Cheap cord & microphone, plastic tips fall off too easily
So I got these on a b-stock, but they were as-new. I loved the idea of the pouch and all the adapters, as I travel relatively often, help host a radio show weekly, and listen to music off my iPhone all day long.
The sound quality was really good, better than most other earbuds I've ever tried. I had a bit of a hard time finding the right fit (these were the first in-ears I got), and I found that my left ear needed the small tip, and I could use the medium or small on the right one (weird!).
The button worked well with my iPhone. I could answer calls by pressing it, play/pause and skip to the next track on iTunes.
I use Skype ALL the time on my laptop, so I was thrilled to use these. To my surprise, I could never do so, as Skype wouldn't seem to catch any sound off of it. I used the adapter so that my laptop would recognize both the mic and the headphones, but that never actually happened.
The microphone also comes with TWO little rubbery covers with a very tiny hole in them, which have to line up. As the rubbery covers are not exactly the same size, one overlaps on the other, and this tiny hole is sandwiched and blocked (duh!). Within a few weeks the microphone/button split open and a small tab broke, so I couldn't really use it anymore. This was terrible as I ride a bike
So overall a very cool concept and set of adapters just didn't really live up to my expectations (I don't think they were THAT high). I really like these as they look and sound great, but they just aren't built to last nor do they feel very high quality.
