    Poor durability – not built to last.

    • Written by from Jakarta

    These are simply not built to last. I am on my second pair in 1 year, and my current pair has already experienced the same problem as the first: The jack is so fundamentally flimsy, that after basic, in-pocket commuter use, it shorts out and only works when you bend it in certain positions. Not a problem if the earphones came with replacement cables like the Shure models, but alas, the whole thing is useless once the jack stops functioning. I have a friend who is on his third pair for the very same reason, so this isn't an isolated incident.

    I can vouch for the sound quality, it's very good given the entry-level price on these things. Aesthetically I'm a huge fan of the concentric circle design, and the black on gold look. Definitely very eye-catching. However, I can't possibly recommend these given the very basic durability concerns of the product. Like more and more things coming out these days, it appears intentionally made for very short term use.

    Good but vulnerable

    Sound is nice. Design is nice. If you're into the special in-ear design it has, go for it.
    But - apparently it has an issue with the minijack where it has a loose connection. After a month or two, the sound only works when the minijack is held in certain ways. After 2 replacements I gave up.
    Don't buy if you use it on the go. As most do with a headset.
