Bought these at retail price and loved them for about a week although they did pinch my head after a while. Put them down to do something and came back, picked them up to place them over my head and the plastic headband snaps in half. Great, so this isn't a big deal, I can glue the band back together, but no. The audio wire that transfers the sound was also severed. This wire mind you is the thinnest piece of wire and obviously cheaply soldered into the port. Couldn't believe I just paid nearly 300 dollars on this dissapointment. Don't get me wrong, when they worked, they were awesome! But if you are buying for yourself or as a gift to your kids, DON'T. You can get the same if not better audio quality from other headphones for a fraction of the price. Oh yeah, and their warranty is bogus. Take my advice and skip out on these.
