These headphones sound great, but they only last 3 weeks. I have gone through 2 pairs and am not rough with them at all. The headset is fine, but the cord has major issues. Both times, my cord ended up with some kind of short or connection failure. Once again, these are amazing sounding headphones, but plan on having them for about 3 weeks, sending them back and waiting 4 weeks for a new pair, having them for 3 weeks, and sending them back and waiting again and again and again.
