"Great sound, but only lasts one year!"2.0 starson by FunkyMan3333
Pros: Great sound, excellent noise cancelling quality, decent bass (compared to previous Eytomics), very comfortable to wear.
Cons: Wires fray at Y connection YEARLY, despite repairs.
Summary: Great sound quality, but the issue at the Y connector would present me recommending these earbuds, especially in light of their cost. Despite keeping my earbuds in their case when not in use, one bud cut out after one year. Etymotic covered it under warranty. Same happened one year later. Now, I am 3 years after purchase and the same thing happened! It's a shame, because I like the earbuds a lot! Unfortunately, most reviewers aren't keeping the earbuds for 1+ years to let you know how they work.
