I have snapped the cables of my previous headphones when trying to untangle them. The flat style of earphone's cables provided me with a permanent solution. There are no tangles anymore and it takes very little time to unpack and use the earphones.
Got them for use in the gym. They are loud enough; great sound and also, they block external noises. Thus I get to train without interference from other people's conversations in the gym.
I am not an expert when it comes to headphones, but after trying out this headphone I am certain that I made the best choice. The quality of sound is superb, excellent bass and has an ergonomic design.
