We all use stuff! So in this section I'll review things that I got myself, and say if they're GOOD! Or just FONG KONG, BOMBAAI, LOW BUDGET FAIIIIL BAD!
These are the Phillips earphones I got last month, read ONE MONTH AGO. We all know headphones usually break over time, it happens. And they usually break because the little wires inside the cord become loose, and then you're left with one ear playing, and then eventually no ear playing. This irritates the crap outta me, and makes me want to learn electronic stuff, then I could also own a bad-ass solder contraption thingy like my colleague at work, and it can double up as a stun stick for baddies. :)
Anyhoo, the first thing I noticed after opening this product (after struggling nearly a half hour to get it open, it was packaged in those plastic holders that are impossible to open without anything sharp at hand, see, here the solder thing would already come in handy!) is that the cord was SHORT! It reached my ears from my pocket just just and there was always tension in the cord when I walked around. Knowing that all earphones break in the cords first, I had a latent fear that would come to fruition MUCH sooner than anticipated. The other day, while walking to the station, *record dying sound* it failed on the one side. I tried to manoeuver the wires and cord to get them in the right place so they can play, but to no avail, and I was SUPER PISSED! Because these earphones ACTUALLY HAVE GOOD SOUND QUALITY, great bass, nice treble sounds, very decent sound for just under a R100, but as with most things, you get what you pay for, and they're now dead, totally.
I got them over other brands, because I thought Phillips was a good, well-known, trusted brand.
I was wrong.
