Rated 3 out of 5 by Bob the Guy "needs to finish in the clutch"
I have had these for a while and have to say that these blew me away, at first. After a while they start feeling uncomfortable and fall out of my ears even though i switched the size of the buds. a few weeks ago i noticed that there was a short in the wire and only one of the buds worked, [...]

Rated 3 out of 5 by a not good enough
The sound for iBeats is great. However, the wiring is not that great so one side of my earphones has no sound anymore and I have to twist my wire for a few times to get the sound. PS: I've only used it for 2 months. So if you want a really lasting earphones, don't get this one despite the great sound.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mel lasted 5 months only!
The product in general is amazing i.e. sound quality, but the cord plug needs to be durable for regular/daily wear and tear, a lot of these wear and tear comes from the tugging and pulling, getting tangled w/ clothes/jacket or other objects. So if you can address that issue then all will be well and awesome! My earphones lasted 5 months only before it started to sound grounded and the right-side earpiece stops working or creates static sounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by I listen to music<3 Their ok.
There ok, they break fast, i listen to music every day 5-6 hours. It was pathetic that it only took 3 months to break, the cord broke on its on even though i was as careful as can be, always putting it back in the travel case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AKSY Not enough bang for buck
I use these mainly whilst traveling and to concentrate. The range of buds supplied and the case work well but the buds in particular are inferior to silicon earpieces from other high end alternatives that feel tailored to your ear's contours. These do look stylish due to the control and colour tone, but I also ticked unattractive design as the white rubber degrades to yellow in less than a week, so I would not get the white version. As the brand name suggests, if you are into bass heavy music, then all in all these are superior to most headphones, but you would expect that given the price. However the product is pretty much a non-event for me when switching to vocal focused music. Finally, i am not the expert here but it seems that not much thought was put into the lead's connector as it sticks straight out and i can imagine it becoming inconvenient / easily damaged with daily use.

Sell replacement cables for the In ear version. For the money it costs, you should have solved the #1 problem of in-ear sets - lack of durability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Taylor Good, but only for as long as they last.
I ordered these a couple months ago. Let's get this across straight away. These are not inexpensive earbuds. They cost enough that you'll have a lot of options for what you'd spend on these. I liked these, bought on somewhat impulse, and loved them for a couple months. Then, like what happens to everyone else, the cord fails, causing my right earbud to stop working. you'd think for the pretty penny these cost you'd get a reliable pair of buds, but this is not uncommon. Infact, it happens to pretty much everyone. I'll be in contact with the company to see if they're willing to fix my issue, and if not, I will have to go everywhere I can to warn people about the poor build quality and the lack of support behind these buds. Bottom line. They were great for a couple months. Now they're not worth a penny, and if the company won't help me with this, I obviously wouldn't reccomend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by anonymous great sounding; build quality poor
These are great sounding headphones, but improvement is needed. The only problem I had with these is that they basically fell apart on me. I didn't treat these any worse than any other earbuds iv'e had in the past, but pieces fell off and the wire even became exposed by the headphone jack. The first thing to go was the "control talk" buttons. The front plate decided to fall off and this was only a month or so after I got them. These problems have also occurred with my friends' iBeats as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rocco Solid Performance with drawbacks
I decided to go with these headphones because I figure they would be great on my daily commute to school. First off the sound is awesome good bass and noise canceling is awesome! On the other hand I find these things somewhat uncomfortable and hurt my ears sometimes. I'm not sure if I would decommed to a friend.
