Great idea, but...
on June 8, 2012
I bought these zipbuds (in blue, $19.99) about a month ago, after seeing them in a magazine and then on TV too. They seemed like such a great idea - no more tangled up cords when I get to the gym to workout. And that much IS great. The zip feature is great.
The negatives, and to me what makes them worthless, is that they will not stay in my ears. I've tried the 3 different size adaptors that come with them, and found one that is comfortable, but they still will not stay in when working out. I'm not running in them - just working out on the elliptical or bike. They really don't even stay in when I've tried them around the house. They seem too heavy or something??
The other negative is that the sound quality is not great. I've never said that about any earbuds or headphones before - I am no audio expert - but these are slightly below average quality sound.
I feel bad that I wasted $20 on them, but I think that is the case. These are unusable to me.
