Quality

Quality:

"Before this, I had bought a pair of extra bass headphones from Sony, and thought the sound quality on them was good but their cords broke right away."
_
"The flat cable does help eliminate tangles but makes it a bit hard to stow in its nice quality zipper case that stores all the tips and accessories."
