I love their headphones. Sound is really good, but build leaves something to be desired, cause I've had 3 of them (Ink'd series) in the last year alone, the earpiece would break off for no reason. I guess you get what you pay for.

Run of the mill in quality and who freakin' cares about what the crap looks like that's lodged in your ears or up your ass.

In my experience, this headphone brand is junk.

I have no idea which product you are buying but what headphone on this planet actually comes with a full warranty including breakage. You get what you pay for and for the price these are awesome. I have nothing but good to say about this company.
