I was quite disappointed with the quality of sound that the speakers of my portable DVD player were capable of due to small size. so I decided to buy this pair of earphones from Amazon as they were cheap and I thought they would "do the job".
But when plugged them in to the DVD player I was amazed at the difference in sound quality. I know they do not compare with the higher priced BEATS earphones but for the cheap price of around 11 pounds they are totally worth the money. They also come with 2 different sized ear buds, which is a bonus as some peoples ears are bigger than others. I personally use the smaller pair as they seem to be more comfortable.
I was also impressed by durability of these earphones as the cable is thicker than the average cheap earphone and the ear buds do not move around at all. After 4 months for use I have not had a single problem with them unlike most cheap ear phones that stop working after a few days or weeks due to loose wiring or poor build quality.
If you are looking for a decent pair of earphones that offer both quality and affordability then these ear phones are a very good choice to make.
I've bought two pairs of these before and being the avid music listener that I am, I use them often and I am pretty happy with both pairs that I have used.
A big plus for these is that they are cheap and durable, I've bought two pairs and both have been being used for about a year and still work. On top of the great price and durability, they are comfortable! That is a rare and very awesome combo. Most of the comfort comes from the fact that there are three different earbud sizes, so you have the choice to make them the size that you want.
The sound is pretty decent for earbuds too, obviously they don't sound amazing, but that is to be expected for the price and the fact that they are earphones.
There is one fault that kind of annoyed me about them though, most earphones have that adjustable slider, which when moved changes where the cable splits (can make it shorter so it isn't all dangly), these don't have that and it can be a little frustrating at times.
The earphones are good, worth the price, the colour choice is neat too. I am probably gonna buy another pair of these if I can't find ones that I like better.
I've always been a big fan of music, and up until a few years ago, I underestimated the difference in sound quality with different types of headphone. I was the type of guy to buy an ipod and use the apple white ones until they (inevitably) broke. Since discovering the difference between mediocre and high quality headphones, I quickly converter to out of ear headphones - they can deliver a lot more bass. But, the drawback of out-of-ears is inconvenience and maneuverability, and for that reason I had always kept in ear headphones, and owned this model for a while.
The quality of the bass driven through this is incredible for the size of the headphones - near out of ear headphone power! They produce a crisp, clear sound without missing too much of the "final recording of the song" quality. Another good point about these headphones is that they actually fit in your ears COMFORTABLY, I think a lot of headphone manufacturers focus only on the sound system, which is of course the priority, but worth nothing if the headphones are too irritating to even place in your ears!
Overall, well done radiopaq, a great success!
I'm really bad for break headphones so I have to buy new ones every other month, These are my lastest purchase and for just £5 they were a complete bargin coming in several different colours including purple, clue, black & pink so it's very easy to match them to your mobile or MP3.
The RadioPaq Flips in ear headphones are comfortable & easy to use with wide stereo sound and enhanced bass, because of the gel like earpieces they mould to your ear shape very easily they also have a noise-cancelling earpiece design which means they reduce outside environment noise with the option to change the gel like bud ends whilst you are using them without blasting your music to people around you, quite useful if your slyly using them in work.
Optimised for MP3's, IPod's, IPhone's and portable gaming if you want crystal clear sound whilst listening to music then these are the headphones for you.
They have the usual 3.5mm stereo jack plug that fits into your Apple iPods and any other MP3 players.
So far they have proved extremely durable and I get amazing sound quality for all types of music from dubstep to heavy rock.
I absolutely love these headphones and recommend them to any music lovers on a budget.
My only bother was the wire being a little too long for me and occasionally catching under my knee when i bend down but im quite short myself for a bloke so it may just be me.
For the money i've spent i'm very happy with my purchase.
If you have read my previous review on earphones you will have read that I go through a lot of them. I do use them frequently, almost every day and I probably don't treat them the best (wrap them round my ipod) so I usually go through a pair of earphones every 6-10 months. These aren't the current earphones that I'm using although they still work.
The earphones are made by radiopaq and are called "radiopaq flips". They are in ear earphones, meaning they poke right into your ear canal. I prefer this type of earphone as they don't fall out of your ear and give a better sound than other types of earphones. The radiopaq flips I have are purple with a white bit that goes in your ear, I mainly got them because of the colour and due to the fact they were "in ear" earphones, I thought the colour was really funky. They are also available in black, white, green, blue, red and pink, all the colours have white ear bits, so there should be a colour to suit everyones taste. I bought them from HMV for around £12 but are currently available on amazon for less than £10.
The earphones have a nice long cable at just over 1m and the cable splits into two to go to each earbud about 2/3rds up the length of the cable. Most earphones tend to have a slider bit so you can shorten and lengthen the "split" part of the cable, these don't which isn't a massive problem but would have been better if they had a slider.
The earbuds themselves are provided with the earphones in 3 different sizes so you can chose one that fits your ear best. The buds are extremely soft and flexible so they do not cause any discomfort in your ear. I find that the earphones do fit well into my ear but they are not as snug as other earphones I've had. Due to them being less snug than other earphones they are not very good at noise cancelling, you still get a decent sound from them but you can hear outside noise more easily than other headphones I've had. Except for the noise cancelling, the overall sound quality is really good for the price of the earphones, its not completely perfect but it is good enough for me.
Overall I would recommend these earphones, the choice of colours is great and they are a good price. I don't think I would buy them again as I have found some other earphones that I prefer, but if they were suddenly no longer available I would be likely to buy these ones again instead.
