Advantages: volume and sound quality
Disadvantages: break easily, poor fit
fantastic. when i ordered these headphones, i guessed that as the price was at the lower end for over ear headphones, the sound qulity would take a knock. not true.
thesound qulity on these things is immense, the huge 50mm driver delivers a pounding relentless stream of bass right into your ears, and the volume was shocking when i experimented by taking it to maximum volume, which, by the way, i do not recommend, as all i heard was tinny noise from my ears for the next 5 minutes. the connecting wire is of good build, and i had no worries about taking these headphones for a run, despite the fact that they never fitted truely to my head, as i suspect they were designed for someone with a perfectly spherical head.
one of the main problems i had heard about this product was their inclination to break about the side. i thought this was a myth, however, until about 3 months ago whenever i noticed a crack appearing on the sliding strap. over the weeks, this progressed, until one fateful day, whenever i streatched them to out them over my head, that they snapped. this problem puts a semi-short lifespan on the product, as mine have lasted a little over 2 years, but i believe it is well worth the risk for the relative cheap cost, and the phenominal sound quality.
Summary: worth taking the risk for the sound you get
