Third pair; Great for Small Ears!
on February 16, 2009
I'm buying my third pair of these. The first pair I managed to step on while I was wearing my running shoes and the ear clip piece broke off. Doh! The second pair I bought were the black version, but I believe they're the same, and the right speaker just stopped working. I had them for about 6 months and they get heavy daily use. So I'm not sure if that says anything about the quality, but since they're only $20, it doesn't seem that bad.
Now for the fit. I have small ears, I guess. They don't look disproportionally small, but since I can't find any other headphones that work for me, they must be. I'm a runner, so the pods never worked well for me because they would just fall right out of my ear. I went to Radio Shack to check out theirs and the guy actually got some of the "adjustable" ear pod headphones out of the packaging to show me how well they would work for my small ears. They had over the ear clip, like these, but the speaker went into your ear and they were "fully adjustable" with a foam pod to mold to your ear. Not so if you don't have the right size ears, apparently. They fell right out and I left empty-handed.
The cliff notes version of this review: If you have small ears and are an active person (you listen to music while doing anything involving jarring/jumping), these are your best bet.
