I've had two sets of these headphones and the sound from them is brilliant, you get a much higher volume from them than on any of the ipod headphones and the bass is good. And for £8 you can't argue with headphones this good. However with both sets after about 4-6 months or so one of the headphones will just die... It is nothing to do with my Mp3 player because i have tried using other headphones and they work fine. The headphone just seems to have a paddy and stops working, sometimes you get sudden loud bursts of loud from them and even stranger they seem to work at certain angles (e.g. with your head tipped sideways)
I'm looking at buying them again now because they've done themselves proud in the time i've had them. However i can't help but wonder if it was chance or if the headphones are just faulty and i'll be back here in a few months giving them a 2 Star rating and a block capital warning to all who are thinking of buying them.
