My friend had these pair of headphones. He's broken the headband twice. I've heard many other people breaking them. They are not durable.

Its funny you mention Fanny Wang as "knock offs" in the review. If you check other reviews (or check them out for yourself), Fanny Wang actually makes much better quality headphones for almost half the price as the Beats. I got a pair of Fanny Wang On Ear Wangs for myself after listening to them next to the Beats. The Wangs have far better sound quality, the bass is nice and strong but the mids and highs are crystal clear as well. With the Beats, the bass is way too strong and overpowers all other aspects of the music.

Right you are, which is why we gave them 8/10.

these headphones are simply grossly over priced, over hyped and over rated. They don't perform as well as the average 15 quid set of headphones......the only thing good about them is the accessory with no sound quality

Maybe I don't know a lot about headphones but I just bought a pair of beats solo and I really like them! I think the sound quality is good and I like the strong bass, personally. They do leak some sound but who cares if you're the one listening to it? As long as you aren't on a city bus no one would mind. However, I do agree they're over priced. I bought them for $220. They could be $150, no more than $200.
