These headphones are great if you want a cheap pair that will need replacing every 6 months or so. The reason you will need to replace them is the sound will disappear from one of the ear buds. This has happened to the 4-5 pairs of these I've had after 4-6 months. For the price, I don't think you could expect more. I purchase them because they fit well, are good for running, and I don't have to worry about losing/damaging them since you can get a good deal on them.
