"Excellent sound, bad build quality."2.5 starson by Bergentoph
Pros: Great sound!
Snug fitting ear buds
Easy to reach audio controls
Cons: Small diameter cord
Cord jacket near headphones and female jack are easily torn
Occasional loss of button control
Summary: When I first received these headphones as a gift I was elated! The sound was great, they fit snug, and looked cool. About three months into use the jackets around the cord where it enters the buds and where it connects to the jack began to rip. I tried to only use these buds for light use and even switched them out for a sports pair when mowing or running. Still they ripped. Also when the cord gets moved around in your pocket the controls on the cord will sometimes stop working for a time, returning you to a previous headphone volume. It usually isn't a big deal but if your headphone volume is set high (because you are plugged into a car auxiliary jack) the volume will spike and usually physically hurt your ears. I believe this problem directly relates to the problem with the cord jacket. I will never buy another set of headphones without a thick cord and secure attachments!
