love this cute case!
on May 24, 2011
if you're looking for an audiophile review, go elsewhere... my ears are good, but I just don't know the terminology. I like the way these sound - MUCH better than the ipod earbuds, but that's not saying much, of course. I've also used skullcandy buds and while these may be as good or not, I like the cord way better (skullcandy cords are often too long and unwieldy and/or they rub on clothing creating a bonus soundtrack!) I don't notice a real difference between these and others I've used in the past, but I do tend to go for ergonomics rather than speaker quality.
i'm content with the way they stay in my ears. better fit than many I've had but not the best. I don't notice any interference from the cord rubbing on my clothing - the cord, btw, is plastic-covered, and looks pretty durable. I like the cord length - just long enough for me to hold the nano comfortably if I want to dance or run, and not so long that it gets tangled up in stuff.
I got the pink ones because I want to coordinate with my orange nano. I like the color - it's not the best match for my nano, but it's good enough - I wanted something brighter.
I LOVE the case that came with these. Such a neat way to carry my nano and it's buds together and safe in my bag! The cord that bends just enough to curl up the phones in the case (I wrap them around my three fingers, just a little tight, and that forms a circle just tight enough to fit) and the nano clips on to the mesh panel so I can fiddle with the buds without dropping it! The only improvements I want are - lose the clunky brand label on the front: the one on the zipper pull is quite enough and the one on the side makes the case bigger! AND - add a wrist strap: maybe even one of those spiral thingies people use to put their keys around their wrist? That would be so cute! I'd settle for a keyclip or carabiner.
