All I can tell you, the w3s are very delicate gear, and they get damaged very easily. When I got my first pair, less than a week later the right earpiece started fading out, than died. I believe this was the result of water damage, I was heading home from swimming while listening music. Even though I applied q-tips to remove any water from my ears before I would use the monitors, apparently it wasn't enough. Likely sweat could cause the same results, unless one is working out very lite where they don't sweat profusely. Also, the cables tag very easily, I had several episodes, where the plugs gut ripped out of my ears, because the cable got stuck. Others reported cracking shells on these, due to such incidents. But, at today's prices, I don't think this will be an issue for many, three years ago the w3s set you back north of $300+!
