I'm playing Remo drumheads since I got my first drums, and was always satisfied with them. They are easy to tune and I can quickly get the sound I want. Never had any problem with durability.
Remo Emperor is 2 ply drumhead that will provide more control and less sustain to the drum. You get more low, fat and muffled sound then single ply head, and it's more durable, but still versatile - you can get nice high tones as well as low ones. Coating gives nice gentle sound with brushes and last long.
Generally you cannot go wrong with Remo, I tried different drumheads brands, but Remo has the sound I like most, and it's very consistent. When I order new drumheads I know what quality and sound I can expect.
