"Love the sound...BUT serious issues with the headband"2.0 starson by brrrooock
Pros: Great sound, good ambient noise attenuation
Cons: Serious durability issue with headband, bulky so can get uncomfortable if worn for long periods, not well suited to portable devices, look a bit dorky
Summary: I'm not a serious audiophile, so I bought these thinking that if they were good enough for an application like DJing they'd be good enough for me. Plus I liked the design, especially the way they collapsed. And I've been happy with the sound they put out, particularily their ability to cut out ambient noise - they're as good as a set of ear plugs on a flight.
My main issue is the band. I had to send them back within the first 8 months to have the band replaced after cracks showed up and pieces of plastic started to fall off. Not good. But since it was under warranty, I got them fixed. I'm now just a few months into the new band, and even with the great care I've treated them with since getting them back, cracks are showing up again. All I'm doing is putting them on and taking them off - using two hands, not taking them off with one which can lead to problems, so I've been told. If they needed to be used in a more serious manner for something like DJing, they wouldn't stand up.
I will admit that I'm a larger than average guy with head to match, but nothing freakish so I don't think it's too much to expect that these should last longer than a few months before going in for repairs or once out of warranty, in the bin. I'd only recommend them if you are prepared to treat them gently and are toting a smaller cranial unit.
Thanks for your submission!
