I have been on the hunt for a good pair of ear buds. I wanted a pair that looked good, had good sound, don't tangle, and don't freeze in the winter. I thought I had that in the Jamboo ear bud's. However, they only lasted 5 days on the hill before they started to give out. Its not the ear buds themselves its the input connection, it started to give out and stopped playing music. Before all that, they worked real well. Also, I'm real hard on equipment so it could be just me.
