I have an extremely physical job, where I'm outside in the elements everyday. I have gone through every kind of headphone one could imagine. The biggest problem I have found is that typical ear buds constantly fall out of your ear and don't get me started on sound quality. These things are amazing! I'm not a big rap fan and mostly listen to metal. The bass and clarity these things carry is nothing short of impressive. Everything else is obsolete. The low ends are low with practically no distortion or cracking out. With the volume control on the cord I'm not digging in and out of my pocket every time someone needs to speak to me. The call switch is the only way they could be better and it's already there. Great design. Does the job. My hat is off to the team that designed them because as far as I'm concerned, you guys nailed it! Great job!
I recieved these as a gift for Christmas from my wife. They hurt my ears because that have a sharp rather than smooth edge... not good for this type of headphone. Don't believe the Dre fanboys, this product is an overpriced novalty...
