These high quality headphones are packaged in a robust box and come with 3 different sized ear buds and a neat little case. They seemt be made exclusively for use with handheld devices, iphones, ipod etc as the wire is just too short for comfortable use with a PC. Still, i expect most people will buy these for ipods anyway. The sound quality is amazing, seriously awesome as is the noise isolation. I also love the thick wire, you just get the impression that this is a high quality robust product built for constant use.That said, the robust aspect means that the ear pieces are quite big and for someone with small ears like me it verges on the uncomfortable. Still, points for the fact that you don't have a longer wire on one side which you have to loop around your neck. I hate that!
The thing that make really these a must buy for me is probably the fact that you have volume control and the ability to pause on the wire itself. Finally i don't have to reach for my ipod in order to just turn the sound up or down (normally up!). Seriously great product, expensive maybe but if you have the money these are a great purchase.
