    too expensive and too flimsy

    Yes they sound great, but within 6 months of purchase the microphone stopped working. In addition, prior to that, the clip which held the microphone near my mouth fell off never to be found again.

    now the wire at the jack plug is starting to come through the junction of wire and jack plug.

    Great sound but too flimsy for daily use and way too expensive

    Fantastic sound, cool looks, awful build quality

    I can't recommend these earphones for the price, when they are flimsy like a soggy digestive falling into your hot tea!

    Yes the sound is awesome, yes the looks are ultra cool, but the buds keep falling out of your ears and they broke within the first week.

    I remember when quality earphones only cost £50, now they're asking £220! If they break after a year would you buy another pair?? I know I wouldn't!

    Comparing versus my Shure E3 (again £130 and shocking build quality) the sound is superior at the low end but not quite at the top end. Comparing against my brother's Bose earphones (£80) the sound is better but not three or even two times better as the price might suggest.

    Great if you are more gentle than a high wire walker carrying a baby over a lava pit with your belongings, but if you are normal and use things normally I don't feel in my opinion that these would last very long!
