"DO NOT BUY!! Great sound, terrible construction!"0.5 starson by thomasatx
Pros: Sound quality
Cons: Wear out fast
Summary: These headphones have amazing sound and very full base. Further, they're very comfortable and stay put in your ears, unlike some others that I've tried that fall out constantly.
The problem is, they wear out, FAST. I have now purchased 3 pair of these headphones within the last 2 years. They last less than 9 months each, and then the left headphone starts crackling, then going in and out, and then dies completely.
Now, because I bought my headphones through eBay (instead of directly from B&W, they will NOT honor the warranty! They will replace headphones for you for $100 fee, but be warned that the warranty on these replacements is only good for 90 days, and not the normal 2 years. Thus, they will try anything and everything to get you to buy more and more headphones for them.
Maybe you're fine with spending $400 per year on headphones to buy a different pair each six months when they wear out, but I will not support a company that behaves this way. It's the worst customer service I've ever encountered.
Now I'm totally spoiled by the sound quality of these headphones and stuck looking for an alternative.
Thanks for your submission!
