Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The cord broke after a few months."
_
"At this point, I would have sent them back if it weren't for a few very nice features:-The fabric cord feels nice, and adds to the durability-The headphone jack, which is where many of my previous headphones had broken, is covered in metal, which should help with longevity-The one-button remote microphone was a huge improvement over not having a remote, allowing me to pause and skip forward and backward on my iPod as well as to answer and take phone calls on my Android phone."
_
"The cord isn't perfectly tangle free, but it comes out of a bag less tangled than any other earbuds I have ever used."
_
"Then, roughly 5 months in, the headphones began to falter due to a connection problem in the cord."
_
"Unfortunately the tangle free cord was not as tangle free as i would have liked."
_
"One other complaint is the material that the headphone cord is made of."
_
"The cord is fabric giving it a nice retro feelThe sound is pretty darn good too considering the price and the fact that they're earbuds."
_
"I rate the sound as 5starsUsing lots of earpiece for many years, I rate the cable as 4 stars, can easily untangle but there are better cable out there whose price is astronomical."
_
"Aesthetically speaking they do look nice, loved the rope-like fabric cord, though the gold accents started to darken after exposure to sweat...hmmmn."
_
"These headphones have really good sound quality; the fabric cord is great; plus they are nearly 1 3 the price of the other headphones I used to get, which did not have fabric cords and would fray."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"No comfort at all, sound signature is not good enough"
_
"But because comfort problems, and now basically unuse it.."
_
"If you need the isolation appropriate to airplane and other noisy environments, you'll need a different, possibly less physically comfortable compromise."
_
"The good:They're really comfortable to wear though it's awkward and kind of painful to put them on."
_
"Many people have had comfort and fit issues and a few have had the same problem I have with one of the ear pieces failing."
_
"The sound isolation is not as good as in-ear buds, but when you are listening to music at a comfortable volume, you won't notice too much outside noise."
_
"Great sound, fairly comfortable."
_
"I've had problems with the Bose canal earphones because they do not fit my right ear well, and they have minor comfort issues."
_
"I love the fit and comfort these pair of headphones give me, plus the sound (I'm not so particular), and the cords don't get tangled."
_
"These might be the most comfortable earbuds I've ever had, they look good, and they definitely stay in place well (even while running), but they have a a couple of major flaws.1."
_
"Very impressive sound quality and comfort."

Design

Design:
"The design of the plug is not the best for keeping the player (iPhone itouch) in your pocket; it causes stress on the cord."
_
"The major caveat is how the design causes ear soreness."
_
"Bad quality and bad customer service does not make up for the great design."
_
"The Good: Personally I hate in-ear earbuds and was excited by the design of these Marshall Minor Earphones."
_
"Since these are NOT in-ear designs, the sound quality is not as good as my S4."
_
"Good design and excellent sound quality."
_
"I purchased this pair of headset over a year ago, and I absolutely loved the vintage design, both the package and the headset itself looked so beautiful."
_
"They are beautifully designed and work pretty well."
_
"These seem like pretty major design flaws to me, and ones that I think they should have thought about."
_
"They also look very good with their gold accents but are heavier because of the design."

Fit

Fit:
"They fit well, which has been a problem for me."
_
"Initially difficult to fit and a bit uncomfortable, but after a few wears, terrific sound and fit."
_
"The headphones also seem to not want to sit in my ear, I think it would take a very specific ear type (like a person with a giant ear hole) to fit these in and it becomes quite irritating to the point I just take them off because I'm tired of messing with them."
_
"My only problem is the way these things would fit into my ear, but since they don't fall out, it's okay."
_
"I've had problems with the Bose canal earphones because they do not fit my right ear well, and they have minor comfort issues."
_
"They fit perfectly and the sound quality is amazing!"
_
"They fit well, which has been a problem for me."
_
"Initially difficult to fit and a bit uncomfortable, but after a few wears, terrific sound and fit."
_
"the main issue is fit and comfort."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The microphone quality isn't that great, I've had friends tell me I sound better on speakerphone than when talking through the Marshal Minor in line microphone."
_
"The problems above I can live with but what I cannot accept is when the sound goes out in one of the ears or the microphone becomes non-functional; unfortunately this usually happens within the first couple months or after a year."
_
"First the mic clip broke, then the gold dials on the sides fell off."
_
"Sometimes it takes weeks to get an RMA approved when all I am doing is jumping through new hoops and providing the same information over and over again (photos of the earphones, description of problem, address, receipt, etc).I continue to buy these headphones because they are the best option on the market for earbuds w microphone that are not inserted into your actual ear canal."
_
"Sound quality is good, microphone is sensitive."
_
"Mine have a microphone and control button that function perfectly well with an iPhone 4s."
_
"Pros:Look great, sound great, great mic for cell use, durable (I have used or carried in a messenger bag daily for a year), tangle free cord."
_
"The microphone is well placed and pics up your voice pretty well."
