Digital music is one of the greatest inventions since sliced bread. Enjoying it on the go has become widely accessible, as there are lots of gadgets which can play music and which have enough storage space to let you take your whole music library with you. Although some mobile gadgets may have speakers, there are situations in which it is preferable to keep your music to yourself, so a good pair of headphones is a must. However, good quality headphones are usually expensive and big. For instance, you may not be comfortable wearing them while jogging or while traveling by bus.
This is what earbuds are for, because they are much better suited to wearing while on the move. If you know how to choose them, your earbuds can deliver a great listening experience, very close to that offered by more expensive and not so portable audio equipment.
ZAGGbuds are one of the best choices because their superior speakers offer a rich, clear and balanced sound. The multiple earbud adapters for various ear sizes enable an enjoyable experience for everybody, unlike cheaper models which hurt small ears and fall out from larger ears. The earbuds and the jack are angled, thus offering a plus of comfort in use. The 54 inch tangle-free cord features multiple sliders for better cord management and a protective invisibleSHIELD polyurethane coating available in seven color combinations. If you don’t want to have it all black, you can choose one of the following:
red – black, blue – orange, black – yellow, gray – blue, gray – silver or black – pink. I like most the red – black combination, but this is only a matter of personal preference. All the colors look cool and the idea of having multiple sliders on the cord really rocks, because there’s nothing worse than having the headphones tangled up. By aligning the sliders as shown in the instructions, in the so-called “Hangin’ Tight” position, the buds will rest around your neck even when not in use, so it’s very easy to find them and put them back in your ears.
