My two cents.
I bought them the last time as I needed to replace the first pair I originally purchased.
Sooooo, Purchase 1 (P1) had a speaker go out after about 3 months of use (I bought those on 4/20). Do note that I sweat like a pig on the way to a luau and can possibly attribute the speaker dying to that. Additionally, the play time on that set was only around 4-5 hours.
I picked up Purchase 2 (P2) on 7/6 and so far these suckers have been great; nearly 8 hours of playtime!
I will say that on both sets the buttons have always been difficult to de-press and send a signal. However, I easily over look this as..well...I'm working out and just need something blaring in my ears so my musical "workout set" is good enough and I don't need to skip or go back a lot.

I bought these from Woot about a year or so ago. I still use these as my primary Bluetooth. Yes, they can be a little tight but I have never found them to be uncomfortable, they just fit snugly over the ear. If you wear them for hours at a time I am sure it would get a little annoying.
So what do I use these for? I go shopping with my wife and she ends up going through shoes, clearance racks and all sorts of stuff that usually involves me holding a purse outside a changing room. (With me guys?) With this device, I connect it to my HTC EVO, and listen to whatever podcasts or music I want to listen to. Lately its been either Kevin Smiths Smodcast or Tales from Lake Woebegone. I see my wife speaking to me and smile and nod and the time goes by as I listen while my wife shops.
This impresses my wife as I seem to be a patient husband and the rewards are awesome.
Today is my 22nd Anniversary and I believe part of what helped us get there were these headphones.
So will 24.99 save your marriage? I don't know but it certainly helped mine!
