Apple iPod Earphones
Advantages: look great, comfortable, long lasting, super sound quality
Disadvantages: bit on the expensive side!
I have been using apple earphones since about 2009 when I got my first ipod nano and was so excited for these trendy looking earphones that everyone has! In 2010 I got my iphone 4 phone contract which was for 24 months so I have been reliant on these ever since. I recently upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S III and these came with their brand of in-ear headphones which were just....awful. They wouldn't stay in my ears and the sound quality was terrible as it just sounded scratchy so I purchased another pair of these earphones to get me through!
They are white headphones are predominantly white some grey design around the rim of the ear piece. At one end is the usual port which plugs into your computer/phone/ipod. The earphones have a thin white wire but it is still durable in that I have never had them break or the plastic to rip showing the wiring underneath as I have had with cheaper brand earphones before. They are extremely comfortable, sitting in my ears perfectly (which I think are average size but I wonder if they are small, as the Samsung earphones wouldn't sit in my ears properly and just kept falling out!) and look sleek and stylish.
Sound wise, for me these apple earphones are perfect! They are loud enough so I can tune out passing traffic or loud noise on a bus without being so loud everyone around me can hear word for word the song I am listening to lol. They are extremely durable as with previous brands of earphones I have used after some time one ear stops working or one ear play significantly louder than the other after some time of wear and tear. I have honestly never experienced this problem with apple earphones and so this is the main reason I find them so reliable and am extremely reluctant to switch to any other brand (unless some rich person out there wants to buy me some dre beats headphones...any takers??)
I use these on a daily basis, whether it be listening to music to and from work, or plugged into my macbook at home when watching shows online or clips on youtube. I have 2 pairs, one which stay home for computer usage and one which live in my bag for my phone. They cost around £26 pair in the apple store (ouch!) or I recently nabbed a pair on amazon for £4.22. To be honest I am not so sure this pair online are 100% genuine although the seller advertises they are, but for me they do the job as great as my other pair and I have noticed no difference!
Nevertheless, I probably would pay the normal price for these as they are amazing and have served me well over the years, with me only needing to replace them when I have lost them!
Summary: super earphones from apple!
