Good Headphones, Bad Durability
on 5 September 2010
I didn't buy these headphones from Amazon, but that doesn't make any difference. I enjoyed these headphones for about a week. They are fantastic. Drown out any noise you can think of with these things.
Then after a week, I removed them from my head, not vigourously, and to my displeasure, discovered that the middle had snapped half way across on a plastic section. This left me with a flimsy pair of headphones, which eventually snapped completely. The headphones were completely fine when I'd put them on and were now in pieces.
The plastic on these things doesn't look that thin on the pictures, but they are incredibly weak. To make things worse, they have a hinge (were the plastic broke) that is supposed to allow them to be portable. I'd prefer to have no hinges and thicker plastic.
At £30, it's not worth buying these headphones. You can get headphones of equal quality at a lower price. Don't be drawn in by the aesthetics of the black and gold patterns, because you won't look so cool with plastic hanging off the side of your head when they break.
