The rubber material at the base of each earphone on my original headphone fell off. This is still working but cannot be used outdoors. This replacement does the job. It's not of the same quality. The mike feels unresponsive and can only do "stop/start" the audio. Increasing/Decreasing the volume does not work, or fast forward/backward. It's not as versatile or tactile as the original. The audio quality is average and nowhere near the original. However for the price, it's good value for money.
