These earphones were purchased just for one reason - last years Halloween party. I was going out with my friends and I wanted that my outfit matches completely (I know, I am a typical woman). I was wearing a black top and a orange skirt so a bought this earphones in orange colour. I paid for them just around £4 and they arrived in just three days. I would lie if I would say that the design is amazing. It is actually very basic, but you cannot expect miracles for such a cheap price. There is a Maxell logo on each ear bud and a sign if you should put it in Right or Left ear. The earphones plugs easily in my smartphone jack. They are not so comfortable to wear, after travelling in the tube and waiting for my friends (who are always late) my ears started hurting. Firstly just a little, but on my way back home from the party already a lot. That is not such a good thing when you try listen to your favourite music and your ears are dying from pain. The sound quality is reasonably good, however I would not wear them for my day to day use.
I wore these earphones once more after the Halloween party to the gym and in the middle of workout the right ear bud stopped working, which was really annoying.
I would not recommend these earphones for daily use but if you want something vibrant which will match your outfit give them a try. They offer a lot of perky colours!
I got these when they were on offer in the local Tesco, (I know..? an offer in Tesco..???), with the intention of using them as a spare, for when my usual ones broke. But when I give them a go I found that they sounded a little better than my usual ones, which meant that my usual ones are now my spares, with these being my usual one.
These came in a clear enough plastic casing, so you know exactly what colour you're getting, blue, pink, green red and more, so there's plenty of colour choice for you.
The ear pieces are quite comfortable, even after having them rammed in my ears for a while, and the sound quality is as good as i'd expect from something that costs less than a pint of larger.
The wire does get tangles up a bit, but as its a good 700mm long it's bound to. It does untangle quite easily so there's no need to take a pair of scissors to it.
The 3.5mm Jack is a good built and slides into the port without feeling as though it is going to fall apart in my hands. I've had some ear phones that have cost more than these that have fallen apart at the connector, with the wires ripping out or the actual connector breaking free. But these ones manage to hold their own as long as you don't pull them out by the wire of course.
I do have to say that the white covering that go over the tiny holes does come loose sometimes but not enough to cause me any hassles.
I supposed that these could be better, although all of the same type could benefit from using a thin softer material around the outsides so that they feel softer in the ear. Hard plastic material can make your ears a little tender after too much pushing in and out
These cost no more than a fiver, with some places selling them for less than 3 quid, which is good money in any one's books.
In all, a nice, small, decent set of in ear ear phones that sound good without the large price tag.
