First off let me tell you, I refuse to pay expensive prices for headphones that I will end up breaking, I know myself oh too well. I bought these on Ebay for like $6 so I was kinda like eh its more than I paid for my old ones but they're supposed to last so I'm ok with it. Let me tell you I am completely 125% in love with these! They are comfy and you can barely tell you have them in at all which I love because who doesn't need some time with some loud music to make their day better? I know I shouldn't listen to music at 100% volume with earbuds but I do it sometimes, who doesn't?! These do kind of get cracky once you go past like 80% which I'm completely ok with maybe itll stop me from blasting it so loud. For the price I love these and I will completely 100% buy these again if and when these go bad. I love them so much you don't understand how much I need headphones to keep from going crazy during my day.
