When the package arrived, it was sealed in plastic. When i opened it, i must admit that the box was a bit difficult to open – the top did not slide off easily. After i was finally able to open the box, i was impressed with how the headphones were placed inside: there is a foam type insert and the earpods are safely tucked inside and then the cord as well and goes to the back. The end (the aux part) had a plastic, protective covering as well. After lifting off the bottom part (a paper cover) inside were the following: several different sizes of ear covers, a booklet of directions (not in english but there are pictures that are easy to understand) and ear pieces to wrap around the top cord to make them fit over the ear for exercise or other movements. The cord has the ability to answer a call and has a microphone. However, my favorite part is the ability to pause, skip a song or back track. However, no part to lower or increase the sound – of that was on the earpods, it would be perfect. The sound quality is very good as well. I am a reviewer and i did receive a discount to purchase these, but i am not a ‘crazy’ reviewer that gives everything five stars very often. I have had many earpods/earphones and most have been okay for the value. I have never wanted to spend $200 for the fancy ones, even though they are awesome. The price for these headphones is an excellent value. I decided to keep one and order another pair for stocking stuffers at christmas.
I was in need of new headphones after i finally got tired of the standard ones that came with my iphone—so glad i went with these. I’m used to the stick-in ear headphones (where the cords come straight out of the ears), and these wrap around my ear. At first it was a little uncomfortable, but i got used to them quickly and found them to be more stable than the typical in-ear headphones. I wish there was a volume-control button on the headphones since i would use that more than the bluetooth microphone, but it’s not a nuisance just reaching down and using my phone or computer volume. The clear part that adds comfort and protection when wrapping the cord around the ear is a good idea, but it’s a little irritating because i have to re-fix the cord inside the clear attachment every time i take the headphones out. It’s also a little tricky to situate the headphones with thethe only other issue i have is that the headphones hurt my ears after about an hour of use because the actual silver part that sit in the ear is too big for my small ears. It stretches my ears out so much it’s pretty painful when they get taken out, so i can only use them for a little bit. The silicone part that goes down in my ears fits fine, but it’s the silver headphone part that is pretty large. * i received these headphones at a discount to provide my honest and unbiased review.
