These have been casually used for about half a year with my ipod. I always listen at moderate levels with earbuds and these are physically in great shape. The only concern I would mention is the rubber earpads have gotten slightly stretched out. However, they still stay on fine and keep the earbuds secured when worn. Just don't pull them out fast. The optional foam pads are still very fresh, I've only tried them on once. Everything is included, carrying case, box, extension cord, Japanese manual. Very clear and detailed sounding earphone. Asking $110 shipped via Priority Mail.
