Bought these headphones after my metallica hesh broke and i could not get another pair :'(
I got these somewhere else. However, i recommend using them at home and never taking them out with you... because you will regret it after about the third time... i know too many people with broken skull candys with like celetape on them and stuff it looks funny but it is serious... do what's best and respect the gadge!!!
Overall though... these headphones have amazing sound quality and you literally cannot hear the background noise with them... good value for money but fail at 5 stars due to their common fault of brittleness... if that is a word... I recommend buying them but looking after them from the start unlike i did regrettably with the metallica ones!!!
