Pros Great sound
Cons The sound goes out on one side
Summary the headphones were given to me as a gift for Christmas of 2010. However, I had to have them replaced in May 2011 because the sound in the right side went out. Now, January 2012, the left side of the headphones went out. These headphones cost a lot of money. I am totally disappointed with the short life of BOTH of my headphones. I was told that I can't get my REPLACED headphones replaced because the 1 year warranty time had expired. I will never purchase another monster cable product & I will discourage my friends from purchasing the product as well. I would highly encourage monster cable to make a better product that last more than a year or have a better warranty policy.
Pros Excellent sound! Fit's securely in the ear and holds in place particularly important when running. Clip provided to minimize cord swing.
Cons Cords will short out and you will end up with sound coming from one ear. Button on cord to adjust volume may not work or may simply quit working. Squeezing of the volume button also may cause repeated skipping to next song or restarting song over and ove
Summary This product produces incredible sound and tremendously rich bass. I bought my FIRST pair and fell in love with however within a few months of routine use (no folding or bending) the right ear simply quit producing sound. After wiggling it a couple of times at the base, the sound would go in and out with static. I emailed "Monster" but was simply ignored. I subsequently bought a 2nd pair prior to deployment to the middle east only to discover the volume adjustment button on the cord never worked from day one with my 5th or 6th generation iPods. Not in the position to fight a customer service battle at the current moment. I am so FREEKIN PISSED with Monster. These things are not cheap. Would I do it over again? NOOOOOO WAY!!!!
