I purchased these when they were around the 17.99 mark which was January last year. I've been extremely happy with them up until a week ago when they broke. At first I noticed a crack in the extendible arm that allows big headed folk to adjust the cups, a few days later the crack gave in leaving the arm dangling pathetically.
I cannot wear these now as they just wobble about on my head. If you're going to pay the current price then it's at your own risk. Skullcandy say these have a lifetime warranty but after searching their website and finding a "Warranty Claims form" it seems you can only claim a new pair if you live within the U.S.A or Canada (and this was on the European website).
Superb sound, poor build quality and poor customer support it seems!
