Urbanears Kransen In Ear Earphones - Dark Grey by Urbanears
OK, so these looked amazing on the eye, had great features; the snap-together buds and built in cable tie, but I found mixed reviews regarding sound quality - my only concern when purchasing...

Upon opening the box and eagerly exploring the apple-esque origami box, I was at first slightly disappointed... The snap-together buds seemed somewhat clunky and came apart with a distinct 'pop'. I had it in my head when purchasing there must be a magnet in there or something.

I appreciate all hard-drives will fail eventually, but after 5 months!?!? Extremely disappointed overall.
