I bought these after reading all of the reviews and putting it down to those few people who gave it a bad rating just being unlucky. They weren't.
I think most people write a review the week after they get stuff, and if that's the case these headphones are amazing. Give it a couple of months, as I did, and you'll be going nuts. They basically fell apart on me. The worst part of the design was the L shaped headphone jack, which is basically an invitation to break when it's in your pocket.
Rubbish, even for this price. I'd spend a bit more to get something that's going to last you as long as it'd take to listen to the whole of your itunes library!
