Cable

Cable:

_
"Even with the cord problem im still giving 5 stars for this."
_
"The only thing i have a complaint with is that the cord sometimes gets tight and twists itself but i understand why so if its something that you will find annoying i would suggest the wireless ones."
_
"My cord for these beats broke about 2 weeks after use."
_
"The only problem that the wired beats in general seem to have is with the cord."
_
"After I receieved the headphones, after a day or two either, the cord itself or the actual headphones themself start to malfunction so I had to switch the cord around the opposite way( the end that the mic is closes to is supposed to be in the actual headphones)."
_
"The entire product is drenched in blue....looks amazing, even the cord."
_
"Lastly, the control cable is nice for the volume control, pause, stop and to hang up calls."

Design

Design:
"Another great alternative would be the Grado SR-80i, which have better sound at a mere 80 bucks, but leak like crazy due to their open backed design, are uncomfortable for long periods of use, and have a bit of shoddy build quality to me."
_
"design is so cute and sound is prettu good."

"They are perfection in sound and design."

"Bought product yesterday because I caught by nice Matte Black design look."
_
"The collapsing portion seems to be well designed and not flimsy like some other reviewers have mentioned."

Fit

Fit:
"First i just want to say i got these from work in a contest and was really thrilled to have a pair of beats i have been curious about them for awhile now but a cost kept me from looking at them i must say the sound really impressed me they sound like a expensive pair of headphones which is what i wanted but thats just half the battle now we look at design of the headset which for the price feels a little cheap fron the earpads that come with it i was expecting more for the price and it came with a carring case which would only make sense that it would be a sturdy material to protect your investment but no it is cloth which is a good fit and makes carring around your beats easy and keeps them clean overall i must say they are a great pair of headphones just over priced but you are paying for a label so if money is not a concern u will love them"
