Apple iPod Earphones
Advantages: Look great, handy button on the wire
Disadvantages: expensive to replace and leak sound very easily
If you've ever owned some sort of apple device that plays music then you will own a pair of these (which is most likely to be 99% of the population!) We've therefore all experienced the white earphone look at least once and felt just like the silhouettes in the advertisements. I have to say that although i now own different earphones, there is no pleasure like the feeling of putting these in your ears once more to listen to the sweet music.
I should really mention that i do think there are better quality earphones out there that will keep your ears even happier with the sweet bass and head bopping qualities. However, the apple earphones are great to wear because of their comfort and they are actually ok in the music department.
What i find great is the small button on the side of the right earpiece. (this is attached to the ones that come with the phone) as it has on it a small microphone which you can use to talk to people on the phone instead of holding your phone up. This is extremely handy when listening to music as it pauses your music for you and starts where it left on when you end the call. It is also very convenient in the car if you dont have any other hands free set. On this small button is also the volume so you can control this without having to get your ipod out. One thing that would be good here though would be to have a forward and rewind button which i would see as more handy than the volume.
There is the downside which i am sure many people have experienced. If you turn the volume up too loud then there is a point when not only you can here your music but everyone about 4 feet around you can. These means these earphones arent good for those who like there music loud but rather for people who lie to not turn temporarily deaf.
WARNING! on the prices recommended for this product it says from 1p. This is not true as these products are just apple knock offs from china and are extremely likely to break. It is DEFINItELY recommended that you dont buy them from ebay but instead go to the apple shop or amazon. Although they may be £25 which is very expensive for these earphones, you are guaranteed to get the real thing.
