Poor build quality and design
29 November 2018
I have to say I'm very disappointed in these headphones. I've had them just under a month, using them 5 times a week on my training runs. Today less than 4 weeks after purchasing them they failed to turn on. Completely dead headphones.
Aside from the fact they have lasted about as long as a tin of Quality Street at a kid's party, they are poorly designed. The volume control is on the right earphone cable and tugs the earphone as you run causing it to frequently come loose. A better design would have been to have made the volume control equidistant from each ear bud and put a clip on it so it could be clipped to clothing. The in-ear clips are fiddly to get on right. They often pop out and the material is temperature sensitive in that it's less pliable on a cold morning. There's also way to much cable between the headphones. No one has ears that far apart that the rest of us need to suffer cable hanging loose on your chest or back. I actually put a cable clip on the wire as it drove me nuts on runs. Like I say, mine broke already and I'll be sending them back to Amazon and not getting another pair.
