After having broken 2 pairs of rather naff headphones in the past two weeks, I have had to make do with my sennheiser running headphones which are good, don't get me wrong. After searching around on the internet, and on Play I came across these. Reading my fellow reviewer's posts, I decided to pay the 16.99 and buy a pair. Unfortunately I timed it wrong and had to wait an extra day due to a lack of sunday post (Booo!) but it was well worth the wait.
I have had them now for about 24 hours.. and in this time I can already tell how great they are. The thicker wire for the headphones is obviously going to make the difference between breaking them and not, and also the colour just adds to the cosmetic appearance!
As for the quality of the output, I'm very much a bassface, I love my bassy music and these headphones do the job! There is no distortion on the low bass nor when the music is played at high volume.
The design of the ear pieces is such that, being on an angle you don't have to force them into your ear (subsequently preserving the connection of the wires) and they are indeed very comfy to wear.
The protective case that they come with is ideal for carrying in your pocket when you're not wearing the headphones and is about the size of two TicTac cases strapped together.
I would highly advise anyone who is/was in the same position as me to purchase a pair of these as, for the price anyway, they are fantastic headphones and I personally think that the quality of the headphones is certainly not reflected by the price. You are getting a lot more for a lot less than you probably should!
