Beats by Dr. Dre HD On-Ear Headphones - Monochrome Red
on 12 November 2017
I have had these for 4 years now and they are still in working order. However the ear-pads have peeled severely in the last year and half wearing away from sweat when exercising which has put them to the test for durability. Whereas this is common for most headphones after long-term use, the pads were made very soft like a cushion or a pillow which doesn't leave them with a permanent crisp dry damage the way a lot of headphones end up when wear and tear kicks in; the ear cushions are still as soft as they were initially and this to me is value for money. From fastening and unfastening the headphones to fit the head size, I can feel that the build is re-enforced. The worst part of these headphones is the little cushion strip which rests on the head which started peeling a year or so later after I bought and starting using them; I think the design could have been way better for this because even though the cushion strip makes you feel comfy for months to come, I believe it inevitably comes off because it is stack on with an adhesive and it's a lot of money to pay just for a small part to fall apart like that; though at least it doesn't hamper usability because I just went and stack it back on with my own adhesive glue. The cable is retractable from the headphones which is awesome and I bought a replacement one after two years of using the original when it stopped working; the cable is good for linking a multitude of devices also.
Hopefully there are sellers with replacement cushions which I could do with for the time being but will certainly buy this brand again.
