To corroborate other reviews here, this is a great product. Perhaps I am a glutton for punishment, or perhaps I had too much faith in Sony and thought the disintegration of the wire on the first set was a one-off, but I have owned 3 sets of these particular headphones (actually, it's because they look so great and I've more money than sense). Every time, the wires have become sticky and soft as if experiencing some sort of chemical breakdown or change. The result is not only quite unpleasant to the touch (remember those novelty rubber spiders that would crawl down walls and windows - just like that), but they also tend to fall apart, leaving wires exposed and eventually they cease to work. When I first bought them, the product was more expensive and there were far fewer cheaper versions of the 'in-ear/bud' type headphones on the market. While I'm sure the sound on these Fontopia phones is up there with the best (and remains so), unless they have fixed what is ultitamely a pretty basic but fundamental fault, then I would suggest buyers avoid this product.
