These headphones served me well while I still used them, and I found it unfortunate that they broke in the way they did. Folding the headphones wasn't too complicated, and the color was subtle and appealing to the eye. My only issue appeared with the cords that led directly from the headphones, which don't disconnect from them like they do on the current Skullcandy items. One tug too hard on them in a tangled accident and my headphones refused to work altogether- which was a shame since their sound quality was fairly good when I was using them. These also came with a carrying pouch I generally ignored, since it was a bit awkward for everyday use.
