Worked "ok" till it broke
on 26 November 2012
Bought these to replace the htc headphones which came with my Desire S phone - the music controls had stopped working (also happened to the headphones which came with my HTC Hero a few years back).
Seem to be the genuine HTC headphones (same as those which came with my Desire S) . The sound quality is average - as you'd expect and the music controls worked properly. However, I found there was a tendency for one earphone to cut out depending on how the jack was plugged into the headphone socket on my phone - turning the jack in the socket would find a sweet spot where it'd work.. hardly ideal. I don't get this with my old set - maybe I just got unlucky.
Sadly the headphones only lasted about 2 weeks - they got caught on a door handle as I walked past and snagged. I'd expect headphones to be able to handle a little abuse, but these stopped working on the first time :( - only one ear works now, and the remote control no longer functions.
Still - can't complain for such a cheap set of headphones. It'd be nice to be able to buy higher qualify earphones with the android music controls, but they seem to be fairly difficult to find. Everyone just caters to the iPhone market.
