These are pretty durable, good-sounding ear buds. The nature of ear buds' construction, with fine wires that are constantly being pulled on to dislodge from the ear or disconnect from the audio source, make it inevitable they will need to be replaced periodically. Having three teens using ear buds means that I am fairly discerning as a buyer, and these Sony EX Series are my go-to model. For the price-point (and even double it), they are the best-sounding, most durable ear buds we've found. I will buy more, but it's not the fault of the Sony ear buds!
I have always been amazed by such unique earbuds! Totally wireless, yet sound amazing! It's the little things that matter too! and while I agree I have heard a richer sound from other audio products, for the price you pay the sound is just fine.
