Llevo con ellos 5 años y por ahora aguantan bien. El único mantenimiento es cambiar las almohadillas que se han deteriorado con el tiempo, pero son fáciles de cambiar. La cancelación de sonido funciona razonablemente bien y además suenan bien. En general estoy contento con ellos aunque ahora mismo hay alternativas mejores.

Pros

  • Durabilidad
  • Comfort
  • Duración de la batería

Cons

  • Almohadillas oficiales caras
