Apple iPod Earphones
Advantages: design, sound quality, long lasting.
Disadvantages: Price, little uncomfortable at first.
== DESIGN ==
The earphones are white coloured and have a nice glossy finish, they have a silver coloured line located on the ear buds. The white glossy finish make a nice change to the boring standard black coloured ear phones and make them look more modern and sophisticated. Although the earphones are mostly plain looking they do have a small apple branded logo on them as well as a R and L letters to distinguish between the left and right earphone.
The cable that is attached to the earphones has a length of 90 cm and 1mm diameter which is a good standard length and can easily attach to your ipod while in your pocket. It has a 3.5mm headphone plug which again is standard size and the correct size to insert into an apple device or most mp3 player or audio devices.
== COMFORTABLE? ==
The earphones are made from hard plastic and don't have any soft padding or cushions so I found that they were a little uncomfortable to start with, and it took a couple attempts for them to fit and stay in my hears, I am not sure whether it is because I have odd shaped ears or because of the design. However after some persisting I have actually become use to the earphones and they do not seem as uncomfortable to wear, I also found that the issue with them falling out my ears is less frequent as I have learned to twist them into my ear with a little bit more effort and they tend to stay put for the most part.
== SOUND QUALITY ==
I personally find the sound quality to be excellent, whether it is slow instrumental music or fast up tempo music, you can really hear the background instruments, bass and music really well. There are no buzzing sounds or interferences; just great quality sounds that really enables you to enjoy the full potential of a song. I have had mine for a good few years and it still works great, sound quality is as good as when I first got it. I am glad that they are long lasting as I would not want to replace them considering the heft price tag.
== PRICE TAG==
These sell for a very hefty price of around £16! I mean I know they are of good quality but to be honest I would not spend that much on a pair of earphones when I can buy similar ones at a much cheaper price (£5). So when mine does become damaged I am afraid I would be saying goodbye to apple branded ear phones!
I am afraid the price lets these earphones down; Yes they are good quality but I am sure I can find similar quality ones for cheaper. If it was £10 cheaper then I would be happy to replace mine when they stop working, as they are well designed. I would still recommend these purely on the quality and whether have the money and are happy to spend £16 on earphones.
