In purchasing these earphones, I paid £12.99 which I suppose is a reasonable price for this product. I must admit that I absolutely loved the 'marshmallow', smoothly curved design of the earpiece. The earphones had great sound quality with a nice, clear base line and were very easy to use. Furthermore there was a wide array of great colors to choose from. Mine were an electric blue.
These earphones had everything going for them for months until bit by bit (literally), they fell apart. First of all, the foam earpiece would fall off after more or less every time I used them. This was extremely irritating. I had an idea that they needed superglueing in to place, but in perspective, I really shouldn't need to be doing this considering the price I paid. Besides I'd probably only break them even more.
Having decided not to break them even more, I put up with this for about a month. It was at this point that the rubber holding the wire in place began to crack and break off at the end where the jack plug is. As a result the wire became unenforced and it was a case of twisting the wire around until I could get a connection, enabling sound to come through. Unfortunately, my look did run out but I didn't mind too much that the sound would stop feeding through completely because by now I was already adamant that I would be purchasing a new pair of earphones.
Whilst I very much enjoyed using these earphones back when they were functioning and in one piece, if I had known that they would cause so much future irritation and inconvenience, I would have just paid a little more for a little more quality.
