they sound good but the build quality is horrible.
Word? Have you ever own a pair? Can you relate to them breaking? Because I've had mine for almost 6 months and have allowed a couple of my big headed friends to wear them and they haven't snapped.
Now, I don't know if you can afford a pair or not (probably not since you're judging them without any proof or experience) but because all them Sennheiser nerds are mad cause Beats by Dre are getting more exposure than their soup can headphones doesn't make it true. These headphones are beautiful and sound great.
