I bought these earphones a couple of weeks back, during a sale. I picked it up without much research simply beause it's a JBL product but I was truly impressed with what I received. A simple but great package that encased the product. I've been using it ever since & may I say, I have butter fingers and have dropped my phone plenty of times but the cable didn't rip or shred at all due to the sudden drop or anything! Giving 6/5 on the make and durability it offers. Somethings that are worth the mention are its sound quality, light weight and bass. As a student, this fits perfectly in my budget but definitely offers a music experience that is beyond any other product of this range.
