I now own three of these headphones, plus another similar Audio Technica pair which are no longer available.
As someone who hates in-ear ear buds, I was lucky to find a pair of these years ago and have never used anything else whilst out walking. I have had two pairs for over ten years and, apart from some cosmetic clumsily inflicted damage, and very minor wear-and-tear, they still fit perfectly and sound amazing. I have purchased another pair simply to ensure that, should the worst happen, I will still have a pair in full working order going forward, may be for another ten years!
If you do not like ear buds, and appreciate good sound quality without proper headphones, then these might be for you.
