Had them for over a year and use them daily in the gym & during football warm-ups. Dropped them a hundred times and still good to go.
Are there better headphones for that price? Sure.
Do they sound good? Hell yeah.. especially if you like bass.
Sorry, after re-reading my comment I did seem a bit harsh.
I like Beats Audio quality and I shouldn't have knocked them, but I really do prefer other brands for the price (Same with Bose). There is a significant markup on Beats audio right now due to the popularity like someone else mentioned.
Audio Technica and Sennheiser both make fantastic headphones that can be found online for cheaper.
