comment
" ...  They start falling apart after a few months . ... The logo pieces falling off, the (black) soft rubber housing around the earbuds seems to stretch and threatens to fall off as does the soft rubber volume control cover.  ...  "
comment
" ...  My first started to come apart after a year, or so. ... As a product built for sportspersons, it just seemed poorly manufactured, and even poorly engineered. ... The rubber bits housing the electronics failed exactly how one would expect .  ...  "

" ...  Speaking of the control buttons, they are difficult to use and very unresponsive.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Then the covering to the control button came loose, which upset the configuration to the point where pause/play and the button to reduce sound stopped working. ... The button for sound increase also stopped working unless you dug around with your fingernail at random. ... Then the volume control kept malfunctioning entirely so the volume would randomly go from max to mute to split your eardrums max volume again.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Many reviewers have commented on the stingy length of the charging cord - which I consider a small detail (though given that I must use it at least once daily, perhaps should not discount it so) - but, really, it's the operational limitations which are really the issue for me.  ...  "
