They are a great head. The coating lasts forever. I've currently had the one on my snare the longest--since April and it sounds great. I play mostly jazz and a little blues with that particular snare though.
I don't know how long they are "supposed" to last but the last head was on for over a year or so before I started having issues tuning it. Turned out it was just time to change it. The coating was a little smooth but it was still there. These heads really last a long, long time.
