Apple iPod Earphones
Advantages: smooth, look good, work well enough
Disadvantages: too pricey for headphones
I have only ever had these earphones when they have come free with an iPod or iPhone. Firstly, I rarely buy earphones that go directly into the ear as I find them extremely irritating and uncomfortable. I will only purchase and wear them for times where I may need to sneak them in. Secondly, these particular ones are unnecessarily expensive. I will usually go to Argos to buy earphones and when you see some that you can buy for less than a fiver, it seems pointless so go for these which tend to be around £15.
You can of course buy them online for a lot cheaper. On amazon, you can buy them from £1.27 though these are used and I can't see anyone being very interested in buying earphones that have been in some stranger's ear!
I have only known the apple earphone to come in white though I must admit they do look quite sleek and modern. In comparison to brands such as Skullcandy though, they seem very dull. Personally, I like skullcandy much more for there colourful different designs.
The shape of the earphones does make it slightly more comfortable to wear. They are all around smooth so rarely get that annoying scratchy feeling when inserting them. The wire is long enough not to get in the way but long enough so you can place the IPod, mp3 etc. into your pocket.
Would I recommend them?
I would suggest going for a cheaper option. Though they are good, they will inevitably break like all other flimsy headphones and id much rather break ones that are just as good and only cost a fiver. If you do choose to buy them, do NOT buy them in store. Find somewhere cheap online.
