Great Replacement Headphones
Member Name: flodombey
Advantages: Range of colours, fit snugly, cheap and work well.
Disadvantages: Not ideal for long periods of use.
A couple of months ago when I got my first iPhone I realised I probably needed to purchase some new headphones to go with it. My old Apple headphones which I had been using for years with my iPod nano had pretty much fallen apart and the wires were exposed so I wanted a cheap but reliable pair to use with the phone which would now also be my music player.
I found these Panasonic ones on Amazon for £6.99 and they come in a range of colours, I actually have the silver version rather than the purple pictured at the top of this page as they were the closest match to my white iPhone, but they do come in colours specifically to match the newer iPod nanos - green, purple, blue and pink namely.
I find that these ear bud style headphones fit very snugly in my ears and are shaped to be comfortable when worn for a couple of hours - I do find if I have them in for longer than this (sometimes I have them in most of the day at work) they start to make my ears a bit sore, but for shorter bursts they are fine.
They actually seem to do a far better job of blocking out other sound than the Apple ones ever did and I do like this about them, for less than a tenner they are a fab replacement product. There is no issue with the connector fitting my Apple devices which was my other concern as these are not made by Apple, clearly they are aimed at people looking to do exactly as I did and replace the original Apple headphones cheapy and efficiently.
The wires are long enough and the sound quality is, if anything, slightly better, due to the lessened background noise. I would definitely recommend these if you need a replacement set of headphones for your ipod/phone.
Summary: A great replacement for original Apple headphones at a low cost.
