Nice headphones, but you're paying for the name

Advantages: great bass and and a 'cool' factor
Disadvantages: far too expensive and no more durable than cheap headphones
I use headphones almost daily i walk a lot and do not like walking without music in my ears so a decent pair of headphones is vital to me, i was brought these as a present last June and was delighted!
The bass quality far better than in your standard £10.00 headphones and voices and instrumentals sound clearer and crisper, the cable is amazing, it is flat rather than circular and therefore never tangles, Also they look great and there aren't many cooler names in music than Dr Dre!
Unfortunately the name is what you're really paying for, although they do sound better than standard headphones they certainly don't sound £80.00 worth of better.
Another disapointment is that now, 3 months down the line the covering where the cable goes into the jack has come loose so i now have to hold it into a certain position or i get a static noise coming through the left earbud, this happens with the cheapest pair of headphones but i really didn't expect for it to happen with these. The earbuds themselves come in a nice range of sizes and the medium sized ones fitted my ears perfectly, once i start walking however they slip out very easily i am constantly having to pop them back in which is both annoying and unacceptable considering the price.
So are they really worth it? No. Although they do have a good sound quality and a big novelty factor, there are far better brands out there that combine quality with value and i would not recommend buying these unless you have spare money to waste!
Summary: Nice but not worth the money
