These headphones really aren't that good.

How Long:Less than a month
I bought a pair of these a couple of weeks ago expecting an amazing set of headphones. Sadly, though, I was wholeheartedly disappointed. While these headphones look great, that's really all they have going for them.
Firstly, they're unbearably uncomfortable, the ear pads are paper thin, which results in the sharp metal drivers pushing up against your ears. They aren't bad for a little while, but after you've had them on for an hour or so they become impossible to wear. My ears were actually red and swollen from them.
You might think that all this would be made up for by the amazing sound quality, but it isn't. They sounded pretty good at first, but after they started to burn in the bass and lower mids just took over. After a week they just sound muddy and undefined. There is also a REALLY annoying resonance in the high end. Every time a piano or a violin get's up into it's upper register it's ear-shattering.
Bottom line, if you want something expensive and stylish to show off with, these are probably for you. But if you're someone like me that buys headphones because you want them to sound good, do yourself a favor and get a pair of ATH-M50s
A superb bass response takes the forefront in Audio-Technica’s ATH-CKS1000BK Solid Bass In-ear Headphones. A-T’s innovative Double Air Chamber System extends bass response without compromising mid- and high-frequency content. The two-position post adjusts the earpieces for better fit and sound isolation, while a uniquely developed 13 mm diaphragm results in more impactful audio reproduction. The headphones come equipped with two 2.6 ft. (0.8 m) extension cables, one with an inline mic, playback and volume controls for smartphones and other compatible devices. A carrying pouch and ear tips (XS/S/M/L) are also included.
