They do feel cheap and lightweight plastic BUT, they sound pretty good and balanced..So for the price of a "cup of joe", it is almost a crime not to get at least two and save as a gift for later. I got two already and I use them both.
Great beater pairs for clumsy people or people who get mad and throw things! LOL. Bought another so my boyfriend can have fun breaking them. So my boyfriend threw my first blue pair purchased free with points against the wall on purpose during a rage and they did not survive lol. As long as you are careful with them they seem to hold up. I will not be using them much as I like Sony headphones more but they are great to get you by when an expensive pair breaks and my boyfriend does not care about sound quality so he can use them and if he breaks them they were only $5!
