My favorite earphones


I have been wearing these earphones for many years and I have never found another brand or type that I like. I cannot wear earbuds that come with my IPod, so these are the next best thing. Never have had a problem with them breaking or losing sound...

Product Specifications

Whether you're exercising or just trying to enjoy your favorite CD's at home, you don't need to be distracted by uncomfortable headphones. These feature a vertical, in-the-ear design that decreases size and weight - you'll hardly notice they're there. The convenient, folding design has three hinges so you can store the headphones in a pocket or purse. But even though they're small, you won't sacrifice great sound. The 16 mm diameter driver develops deeper bass. An oxygen-free copper cord cuts down on the noise because it conducts electricity better than conventional copper. For added safety, you'll also be able to hear outside sounds like an oncoming car. These compact headphones, combined with a slim and ultralight headband, can be worn in comfort for hours. They also feature Sony Acoustic Twin Turbo Circuit for high efficiency.
