OK, I was so in love with these- and was looking for another pair. But then i thought back to when i had them... The band snapped in five when i wore them sleeping (not even frickin superglue and duct tape could keep these things together). After that i used them just as speakers, but the wires cracked and neither ear works anymore.They did not last very long, so if you have 'em, i hope you got the warranty. I am starting to think if i did find the exact ones i wanted, i would not only get the warranty, but some 'buds to back 'em up.. The sound is still pretty awesome (using my brothers right now) but watch out on how you handle them.
