It's a really great thing! I do not know how long i had it, but it was more than 2 years. And I wore that thing very often. I had to replace it, because the rubber was starting to come off. When that happens, you cannot wear it anymore. It has great sound, although the bass could be a little bit louder. The headfones are starting to hurt after wearing it for a while, because the spot where it leans on your ears, has no rubber.But personally I am able to take these disadvantages because of the great sound ( for this price ) and the simplicity of use.
I use the phones with a keyboard and Roland JV 880 - the sound is gorgeous: my violinist uses the phones too when I am accompanying and it works well. Great timbre, very subtle up and down the keyboard. The lightness of the phones is a great advantage, one is scarcely aware of them. Art first I found the sound slightly scrathct compare dto what I was used to (old Sennheiser with a booming bass whcih I had got used to) but with familiarity I cannot now use the Sennheiser's - the sound is too coarse.
No annoying sitar music! - Advantages: look cool, cheap, don't bleed annoying sitar sound - Disadvantages: the Indian in the next cube doesn't use them, the cushy earpads are starting to wear thin, L-shaped 1/8" plug causes wear on the wire
