This review is from: Maxell 190560 3.5mm L-plug Connector Earbud EB95 Dynamic Earbuds (Black)
Pros: Cheap and easy to replace. really, I just hate all the earbuds changing to in-ear canal type. These are a cheap and less painful alternative.
They are "formed" to fit your ear so they are pretty comfortable too.
Cons: These break if you so much as look at them funny. After normal use, the wires will disconnect from the speaker, or one speaker will short out. Sound, even on brand new earphones, can be fuzzy or uneven in one or both speakers.
I usually buy these in sets of 3-4 as one usually arrives broken and the others break very quickly. This is simply not a quality product - BUT! for the price, if you know you are tough on headphones and hate breaking expensive earbuds, then these are the set for you!
One speaker ALWAYS goes before the other. I have 6-7 sets laying around with one side broken. it just happens after two weeks or so of normal use. Expect it.
Other Thoughts: As stated above, these are simply earbuds for the person who knows they are gonna break them. They are cheap, I usually buy them in sets of 3-10 at a time. Expect one side to go out on you after two weeks of normal use, then buy another boxful.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fits great in ear and much "flatter" than other earbuds so you can lay your head on pillows without them poking into your ear.
These also can take some abuse - I am pretty tough on headphones, tend to put them through the wash, drop them, etc. so they rarely last me more than a month or so but these still function perfectly! Very satisfied with this product.
The cord is long - very long! So it is nice to be able to put down my device and still have a pretty large range of motion.
Another pro is even with some damage (recently, the speaker separated from the earbud) they still function perfectly. I glued the speaker back into the earbud and there is no sound distortion. Usually sound gives out in one of the earbuds before any physical damage (with other earbud brands) but these are still going strong.
Cons: Not much really. Sometimes the cord seems too long (it gets caught on things pretty easy if you don't watch) but the times I need a long cord way outnumber the times this cord was "too long".
If the cord does get caught though, it gives your ears a good yank! These earbuds stay put so, unfortunately, you are more likely to pull the cord out of the device it is plugged into rather than pulling it out of your ears. This can cause the plug to bend or even break off in your device, so watch carefully if you notice you are yanking the cord.
They are round, not oblong, so it can take a few days for your ears to get used to them and that can hurt a little.
Other Thoughts: I can't seem to find these for sale any longer at any stores in my area, or on the Skullcandy website so they may be discontinued, which would be sad.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARCHOS 30c Vision 3" 8 GB Touchscreen Multimedia Player w/ FM Radio - Black (501630)
Pros: Easy to transfer files to.
Cons: NO dedicated volume buttons....must unlock screen and use touch screen to adjust volume. Touch screen needs you to practically pound on it to accept input.
Other Thoughts: Not very happy with it at all...very slim and light so it seems fragile...READ FULL REVIEW
