Apple iPod Earphones
Advantages: Standard quality headphones, come with apple products
I have owned a good few of pairs of these headphones which I have acquired through various ipod and iphone purchases. The price to buy them individually is £25 which i think is unreasonable as they are standard headphone and similar quality, branded headphones can be purchased for under £10 from other retailers.
Price out of the way, as earphones that come with another product (i.e. phone or an ipod) they aren't too bad, my pair are white with white and grey ear buds. I especially like the look of white headphones so I enjoy wearing these earphones, they are compact in size meaning they are also quite discreet and the earbuds sit directly within the ear.
My pair of headphones feature a small button strip which allows me to change the volume directly using the headphones, I think this is a great feature as it saves me getting the device out of my pocket to change the volume. My headphones also have a small clip which means I can tie the headphones up and clip them in place, this really helps with portability and keeps my headphones in place when I am not using them meaning they don't get all tangled up in-between uses, for me this is a huge bonus as there is nothing more frustrating than untangling headphones!
In terms of sound quality, I am not a headphone snob so I can't comment too much on how good the sound is, however in my opinion the quality is a good, clear sound with no tinny-ness of fuzziness, this is all I really look for in headphones so for me I am happy with the sound quality of these earphones.
With regards to usability, i don't find these earphones particularly comfortable or practical, the ear buds are quite big and I find they often fall out of my ear particularly if i am listening to music on the move e.g. whilst walking or at the gym. I have also on occasion found my ears feeling a little sore after using them.
Overall, these earphones are average, the quality is good for a product that comes with another product however I find them quite uncomfortable when using and I would not purchase them separately.
