Long time user no longer purchasing these headphones due to recent changes
Reviewed in the United States on May 6, 2018
The Good: the sound is good, they stay in your ears when you run, they're affordable. I actually have owned OVER A DOZEN pairs of these since 2012 because that combination was so favorable.
The terrible: After 6-8 months or so, they usually need to be replaced because one of the earbuds stops working, or the wire starts coming apart. Hence the over a dozen.
BUT, more importantly, my streak is ending. They recently changed the shape of the ear buds so they are little wider and made out of a different material. These changes make it *excruciating* to wear for longer than five minutes because it unavoidably digs into the various parts of my ear. And now there's also solid chunk of cheap plastic in the middle that bounces against me when I run.
What the hell did they do to these perfectly decent headphones?
