I got a pair of these earphones at christmas and man alive the sound quality is mint. Complete blockage of background noise. I have tried mny headphones and earphones and none have lasted as long as these and the sound quality beats all models from audio companies, no, it blows other companies out of the water. They even come with a nice lisstle leather pouch. Ok bit gay but i guess you can claim that it's protecting your earphones. Whats more they look good, they're comfortable and come with three sizes.
