I don't normally write reviews, but I figured these are absolutely worth it. I've had these headphones for about 16 months now and they've only just broke. I don't know about you guys, but normally I struggle to find headphones that last much longer than 3 months, so it was a brilliant purchase. The sound is loud (I normally struggle to put my iPod volume much above halfway without my ears exploding) and the quality is good enough for me to not notice any faults, with a decent level of bass. And for the cheap price it's absolutely fantastic, especially given how durable it is. I'm buying a second pair right now, these have served me so well!
