Button

Button:
"The 3-Button remote has failed after about 8 months."
_
"ISSUESThe primary weakness I found (I'm on my 2nd pair) is that the junction above and below the 3-button control can wear."
_
"Both of my defective sets broke down in the same way: the remote buttons stopped working, followed by the microphone quality failing so that nobody could hear me on the other end when I was making calls; it seems like there's some shoddy manufacturing in the remote piece of the headphones."
_
"Unfortunately, the button control stops working with even the slightest amount of moisture (in this case sweat), often right at the beginning of my workout."
_
"The aluminum construction of the earpieces is light yet sturdy (but not so great for cold, cold weather) and the buttons on the remote are just the right size - well articulated so you aren't constantly hitting the wrong buttons but still small and sleek."
_
"Great button controls!"
_
"inline volume and pause buttons work well on an iPod."
_
"The buttons are easily distinguishable so you don't have to guess what your pressing."
_
"The 3-button remote with mic is also a great feature."
_
"Overall it's a good product but there are some little things that I find really ennoying...#1 - There's a too much pronounced residual sound when the cable is in contact with something else, so there's always this bzzzz sound in the background each time the cable touches my clothes or my collar.#2 - only the play button is compatible with my android phone, and I somehow find it unpleasant to use compared to my previous headset (OEM htc headset)#3 - The ear buds really cut the sounds around you and that's an incredibly good thing !"

Cable

Cable:
"Pretty much the only problem I've had with these is after some time (two years for me) the cable can squeeze its way between the Kevlar fibers, exposing a small portion of the inner cable."
_
"The bad:I had one of the older v-moda headphones which broke (those with kevlar cables), and while this one comes from a higher price range, the cables are just normal and therefore look less durable (time will tell, I guess)."
_
"Aside from the rather flimsy upper cables, the build quality of the earphones is excellent with solid metal housing."
_
"If I paid $79 for these I would probably rate them 3 5 stars instead due to the cables failing."
_
"Unfortunately, the cables that V-Moda touts as extremely durable kevlar frayed in two spots within a year."
_
"I have only used them about 2 months and the tip of the plug broke off inside of a headphone extension cord."
_
"The cord has a nice rubberized texture to it and with Kevlar strands inside it is very durable."
_
"Great cord, fits in your ears just right, plenty of accessories and awesome warranty."
_
"The earhooks that came with the product were effective for canceling out noise from the cord, but once installed the cord was so short that the remote was pressed against my throat."
_
"The bad:I had one of the older v-moda headphones which broke (those with kevlar cables), and while this one comes from a higher price range, the cables are just normal and therefore look less durable (time will tell, I guess)."

Control:
"ISSUESThe primary weakness I found (I'm on my 2nd pair) is that the junction above and below the 3-button control can wear."

_
"I can still turn my iPod on and off using the little control unit on the wire, but the I no longer am able to raise or lower the volume using this little in-line remote."
_
"I feel that they won't make a great seal in my ear if it's not completely clean(I clean my ears avidly, but I notice wax tends to build more constantly with headphones that plug your ears so well).I like the controls, But I'm not in love with them."
_
"Great button controls!"

Design

Design:
"Much credit is due to V-Moda's customer service department for handling replacing the headphones quickly and professionally, but it appears that the remote is poorly designed and subject to failing easily."

_
"The Kevlar apparently isn't very well designed into the earbuds."
_
"For design and functionality I give them a 2 5 because they are just so damn uncomfortable to wear."

Headphone:

_
"The microphone is way too far down the cord, and so there are two major problems: 1. people can't hear me unless I hold the microphone up to my mouth, which basically negates the hands-free notion 2. the microphone section keeps bumping into your chest with any small movement (even in the car), which causes annoying thumping noises through the headset."

"Not the perfect solution but much better than any of the bluetooth headsets that I've tried."

"Some reviewers complain about the fit of the headset."

_
"So if you want to hear your music very well and have a great headset for calls as well, buy these buds and you will not be disappointed! "

Microphone:

_
"I have had countless complaints that the microphone makes an irritating sound."
_
"To sum this up:Pros:1) Siri Compatible (when the microphone works)2) Looks niceCons:1) Poorly made- 2 defective products already not very durable2) They do not stay in your ears (even with the sport hooks) especially when running for 1+ miles3) They cut your ears causing them to bleed sometimes after a long workout (see post for specific information)4) The microphone is terrible5) When wearing sport hooks, the microphone is literally touching your chin, making the headphones really uncomfortable."

_
"The microphone seems to work pretty well with my phone."
_
"The remote placement is a major improvement over the stock apple headphones, wether those be the ones that come with the 4 4S or the improved versions that come with the 5. the microphone is right below the split so you always know where it is and is easy to reach."
_
"The 3-button remote with mic is also a great feature."
_
"But I needed a volume and mic function on a pair of really good earphones, so those will do it for now."

Music

Music:
"However, since I bought these headphones mostly to talk on the phone rather than to just listen to music, I'm very disappointed."
_

_

Remote

Remote:
"I sent my query off to V-Moda and their response was:Joanna, Feb 13 09:43 AM:Unfortunately, the remix remotes are not compatible for most Samsung devices."
_
"Much credit is due to V-Moda's customer service department for handling replacing the headphones quickly and professionally, but it appears that the remote is poorly designed and subject to failing easily."

"The 3-Button remote has failed after about 8 months."
_
"My only complaint is the fact that the remote and mic are located where the two ear phones meet instead of on one of the earphones instead."

Rubber:

Size

Size:
"The only complaint is that the L and R are really small, but easy fix with a marker."
_
"(2 pairs of each size L M S xS)CONS:-Earbud Design: The weird plastic part of the ear bud that encases the metal interior with its jagged edges rubs against your ear and feels prickly."
_
"You have to get accustomed to the ear buds even after you find the right size and prolonged use may cause some discomfort in your ears."
_
"The microphone is way too far down the cord, and so there are two major problems: 1. people can't hear me unless I hold the microphone up to my mouth, which basically negates the hands-free notion 2. the microphone section keeps bumping into your chest with any small movement (even in the car), which causes annoying thumping noises through the headset."
_
"Pros:- Solid construction- Wires do not inherently tangle on their own- Over the year wire guides (use is optional) help headphones stay in place- Comes with four sizes of each cushionsCons:- Tinny sound and VERY DISAPPOINTING BASS (especially compared to my $20 Skullcandy set)- Ear cushions are very basic and do not fit my (large) ear as well as my $20 SkullcandyIn my opinion they are not worth the $42 or so being asked here."
_
"One small annoyance is that you cannot easily notice which one is the right-side and which one is the left-side."
_
"Bass output is phenomenal for something this size, it has more bass output that some car speakers!"
_
"Fit in my ears perfectly thanks to the many size options."

"I'm so disappointed because I love the sound so much."

_
"They are made very well, look great but the sound is horrible!"
