The good points to this model are: 1) They are fairly comfortable compared to most other earbuds, and 2) they are available in a wide array of colorful options to match pretty much any MP3 player on the planet. They have a bit of a noise isolating quality which can be good, but can also be bad. This leads us to what people don’t like about these headphones, which is that they suffer from a muted high-end and muddled overall sound. The bottom line is that these are comfortable and are a reasonable step up from the stock earbuds that came with your iPod, but audio purists should steer clear if they’re looking for perfection. However, at a price point of roughly $20.00 this is about the best you can expect to get.
These feature a cute, colorful style to match that of the iPod. They actually have impressive bass response which is hard to find in these types of headphones and for such a low price. They are also pretty good at blocking out some ambient background noise which is a good feature to have. Some of the cons to this product are that earbud housing is plastic and feels sort of cheap, and the cable doesn’t seem very durable. Some also say that the music produced by these earphones is lacking in warmth and the high end frequencies sound too sharp in some songs. All in all these are well suited for iPod owners on a budget who want ultra-portable earbud headphones to match their player. Bass addicts have taken a liking to this model, and at a retail price of about $19 they fit into most people’s budget.
