Having researched reviews from various web sources, these seemed a pretty good option to go for, particularly in light of the significant price reduction being offered at the time from Play. So a no-brainer - of so you might think.
Initially, they performed pretty much as expected with the positive/negative points from other reviewers being in evidence - but my overall impression was good.
Then one day I took them out of the case and they broke. No force was used - I simply removed them from the case. The plastic supports securing the earpieces to the headband are extremely weak and brittle - and as I found out, easily breakable. I tried to repair them using epoxy glue but this proved impossible as the shape of each section provides practically no point to clamp the two pieces together while the glue dries- bearing in mind that the plastic link must remain articulated so you can swivel the earpieces. End result: they are unusable.
My advice: avoid the low-cost attraction of these cans - it's a false economy. Save up your pennies and get a quality brand. I now have some Sennheisers which are brill.
