Apple iPod Earphones
Advantages: plain simple design
Disadvantages: not great sound quality - dont fit in ear properly
When I bought my iPod, I assumed the headphones that were provided with it would be great too. After all, they are an Apple product, and they're not particularly cheap when bought alone. After only a couple of days use though, I went out and bought some new, different headphones.
- Design -
The headphones are very simple. They are white, and do not come in any other colour - which to be honest is a bit of a disappointment in itself for such a big brand. Would it be so hard to offer them in a range of colours? Each earpiece, as with most headphones, has the letter R or L to indicate which piece goes in which ear. The cord length is pretty average - but it just about reaches from pocket to ear so I don't see why it would need to be any longer! The shape of the earphones is average - its the kind that sit in your ear for seconds before falling out - it seems silly that they weren't created to be the in-ear kind that actually fit and stay inside your ear.
- Quality -
To be honest, I wasn't at all impressed with the sound quality of these headphones. They were pretty standard for audio quality, and when the volume was turned up full the sound got even worse - in fact it started to make that crackling sound a little. If it's not up too loud, the sound is clear, but it doesn't have particularly good bass or anything so I guess the quality will also depend on the kind of music that you listen to on them.
As I said, after just a few uses I went out and bought some different headphones to use with my iPod, and so therefore wouldn't recommend these. They're okay if you don't want excellent quality sound and don't use them much, but I'd recommend getting some better headphones for a cheaper price - such as skullcandy.
Summary: Pretty average pair of headphones. Have had better.
