Heavy

Heavy:
"Heard static if the cable wasn't adjusted right at the end of the 2nd month of heavy use, and now the right headphone is completely dead."
_
"Sound good, love the bass, dissappointed that the buds themself are metal and are prerty heavy, they sometimes fall out due to this"
_
"Fundamentally, these ear-buds are what I feared, heavy bass emphasis, mediocre midrange, and muffled, muddy highs."
_
"The sound quality is good it provides a good and clear sound but also gives a heavy bass which I like, this kind of bass is perfect for people that listens to rap, house, elctro and anything with bass...I used these on a daily basis from Monday to Friday commuting to and from school so at least an hour a day, and these held for 18 months."
_
"Pro: Good sound, very bass heavy, tangle free cablesCon: Overpriced sound quality doesn't justify the price, uncomfortable after long use, falls out of ear a lot compared to other in ear options I think this is because of the heavier weight rigid cables, lots of cable noise"
_
"I still like my Sony ones better they are louder and more comfortable, these head phones are actually kinda heavy"
_
"Yes it looks cool, but is heavy and tends to cause the buds to fall out easily."
_
"The sound quality is good but the wire is too heavy and the ear beats fall out of your ears."

Sound

Sound:
"I was listening to music, it made a crackling sound and went dead."

_
"I unfortunately do not believe the headphones I bought are authentic Beats as the sound quality is not good."

_
"Overall had a great 4 month run with them but Very disappointed in the craftsmanship and also the 'warranty'."
_
"The sound quality is okay, but not worth the overall price, let alone the fact that you will be buying a new pair before you can say crappy warranty."
_
"I got my last pair before the warranty expired, and they broke after only 5 weeks."
_
"And her warranty is even worst!"
_
"So no problem I have a warranty on it: I'm sure they'll replace it; however after speaking to their customer service (very helpful people overall) I was told that this is an atypical thing to happen so warranty may not cover it; and that I'd likely have to pay a $60 fee to repair it."
_
"However when at best buy I was told that these do have a 1 year manufacturers warranty, and I bought a 2 year extended warranty."
_
"Delivered and Target hit the bullseye with a two year warranty for just $7.00 extra...that left my mind at rest...I'm confident that I will be A HAPPIER MUSIC LISTENER!"
