Pros: Interchangeable parts, Customizable,

Cons: Can be uncomfortable, Mids aren't clear (not to talk about highs)

I bought these after a friend recommended the to me and I gave them a short try. First I was really happy with them as they sounded pretty good, bass was great, although it has some trouble with highs and mids aren't clear all the times (it was made for everyday bassheads after all). A great plus was that it was fairly easy to get free (limited edition) headbands for it through the soldierofsound website. But then problems started...

 

Noise cancellation is good, I had no issue using it on public transportation. Due to the headphone's simple and swappable design it's fairly big and it might look like you wear the heads of toilette pumps on your ears. The cushion on the headband and the cans are really soft and comfortable but the headband itself can be pretty tight if you have a big head. Headbands are durable, as the company states indestructible, and come in an endless variation of colors and designs. The cord seems to be a little bit cheap and it feels like its easy to tear them (especially after it splits into two lines). Remote is pretty ****ty, the fake metallic surface got scratched in the first few days, mic quality is okay.

 

The headphones lasted half a year. I started to notice that the left can sometimes distorts bass and that it makes a weird clicking noise every time I move my head. I wrote customer support on the 18th of December, I was told that my replacement cans will be shipped immediately - they haven't arrived yet because of stock shortages...
