Cable

Cable:
"It was open and used with a broken cord"
_
"Overall, an good headphone, but the cable for this headphone is too weak... breaks to easily."
_
"They are junk and I can not get anyone to replace them or the cord."
_
"I replaced my failed stock cable with Sol Republic's Pro Cable ($35) and found that it seems to be much sturdier, and provides a slight but noticeable improvement in sound quality; This is the cable that the headphones should have come with out of the box, the stock cable is junk."
_
"The reason they lost a star is that the stock cable is not durable at all; I treat my headphones very well, they are not abused, and still the cord failed in about 9 months of occasional use (~1-3 times per week, ~1 hour at a time)."
_
"Overall, an good headphone, but the cable for this headphone is too weak... breaks to easily."
_
"I love 3-button cords, I've been using them 1 year and have no problem with the headphone or the cord."
_
"It wasn't the cable that was broken, it was the sound engine."
_
"I love that you can change the cord and the headband."
_
"Let me add, that the problem I experienced could have been very minor, like the cord (Although no signs of damage); but I didn't bother with trying to determine that because I was able to return them so easily."

Color

Color:
"Now I do honestly love these headphones.. My kids mess nearly everything up but they still haven't managed to break these even though they have ripped out the chord(another huge plus for having removable wires that can be replaced if damaged or for another color) a bunch of times and bent it.. Also they bend really well.. My only complaints are I wish it could fold up.. Now the Sound!"
_
"I recommend anyone wanting a awesome headset and durable get these because not only are the bands durable but can buy different ones in color and such."
_
"Great Sound, Good Looking, and comes with a built in mic... and all parts are interchangeable, if you want different colors or need to change a damaged part..."
_
"And you cant break it , plus can change out the colors....but my son wont be doing that as he doesn't care..but he does love the quality and tells me they are the best he has had ! "
_
"Love how if I wanted to I could change the headband to different colors or even paint my own design."
_
"The color is beautiful and the band is durable and changeable."

Design

Design:
"With the typical headphone design, I could have easily broken them completely, but with the interchangeable design, the cable simply unplugged from the sound engines and after reconnecting them, I was back in business."
_
"Super comfortable ear cushions, funky design and the sound quality is better than any other in ear or over the ear headphones I have ever tried."
_
"The sound is great, and I love the design."
_
"Thumping bass, stylish design and very durable."
_
"The design is very sleak and comfortable."
_
"You'll notice that the Audio-Technica, or other good quality phones are slightly softer at the same volume than cheaper non-pro headphones like these SOL's, but you simply turn up the volume and you'll notice a huge deeper bass response and much much much higher and clear treble, and spatial separation, which is actually where the design difficulty is in speaker design."

Fit:
"The cups are small circles that don't fit well on my ear, and the strap fits a bit too snug on my head."

"My only complaint is that the one size fits all headband gets a bit tight after an hour or so on my head, but I have a large head, so that's probably half of it."
_
"He says they fit better, sound better, nothing has broken (month 2 now) and he gets compliments on how cool they look."
_

_
"Amazing product, but the headphones fit really tight making them uncomfortable for long wears our runs!"
_
"These headphones are great the sound and the way they fit over my ears I don't like headphones that you put in your ears I like the over the ears."
_
"Fit is fantastic, and sound is way better than the price tag would suggest."
_
"The bass was deep, but not overbearing like some other brands, and the other sound ranges fit well."
_
"They did fit nicely, although after long usage (~1 hour or so) they did become slightly uncomfortable and the longer use the worse it got."
_
"Fantastic sound quality and a good fit."
