i have the zorro hd version. They are pretty decent for the price and the sound quality is good. However, the customer service from the company is understandably nonexistent. The lead/aux cable that attaches to the headphones and your headphone jack is detachable, and is of a poor quality build. Mine broke after three months of use, and I couldn't find an oem replacement anywhere online at Tanga.com or even at ebay. Everyone was just selling a new pair. I tried contacting the manufacturer multiple times but got no reply. The manufacturer does sell the headphone cable separately but the website is in Chinese/mandarin and I don't think it is possible to have it shipped outside of China.
I found generic headphone cables on ebay, that I thought might fit. I opted to go for an oem beats cable from a wholesaler on amazon and that cable is 100 times better than what they ship with the headsets. Not a bad deal, just expect 0 customer service, hence warranty/repair being an issue, and be ready to scout around for the headphone/mic cable from different manufacturers after a few months.

I agree on the zero customer service. I actually did get an immediate response from their overseas department and it was obvious they were trying really hard but after a few emails back and forth we couldn't get past the language barrier, they apologized and gave me the email to their US re-sellers office. I emailed the US re-sellers office about a half a dozen times and never got a response.
I have the the Zoro HD headphones and they are great, I would definitely purchase them again. I also have the Rio IEM's and although they do sound great if you push and hold them in your ears, the stems and tips are too short and you can't get a good seal. The result is that you loose a lot of bass and they sound hollow. Part of the issue is the piece that the cord comes out of, it's too close to the body so it will press up against your ear lobe or any other part of your ear, unless you turn them completely upside down and pull the cables over your ears. The cables are really comfortable for over the ear wear though and this also changes the angle going into your ear canal and it still doesn't sound right. I might to to modify them and see if I can get anything better out of them.
I've owned about a dozen sets of IEM, mostly in the low range $15-50 but a couple in the high range as well $200-300. I wouldn't buy the Rio's again, they are the only set of IEM's that I've had this kind of problem with.
