My kids love listening to music when they do their homework, but when you have 3 kids, each with their own playlists, that doesn't always work. Good headphones are always a nice thing to have -- and it's even better when those headphones double as HP speakers when they want to share their tunes with their friends! Flips Audio are the first heaphones that transform from regular heaphones to HD speakers. I recently received a pair to review, and I give them an A+!
At first glance, they seem like your run-of-the-mill premium headphones: sleek design, comfy cushioned ear cups, great sound quality.
But wait! You can flip the ear cups to face outwards, and all of a sudden, you have a pair of HD speakers that deliver great amp'd-up sound, NOT the tinny sound you'd get if you were to take your headphones off and crank up the volume to maximum. It's the first of its kind -- you can listen to your tunes by yourself, then take your headphones off and share your tunes with everyone around you. Whether you listen alone or out loud, you'll enjoy the highest audio quality!
When you're done, the headphones fold up nicely into a zippered case. The case is a super lightweight fabric shell that keeps the headphones from getting scratched or beat up or broken, so you don't have to suffer the pain and frustration of spending for a replacement after it's accidentally knocked off the coffee table!
Best of all, at $120 MSRP (and I've seen them on sale for less than $100 at Wal-Mart!), Flips Headphones don't cost an arm and a leg like many high quality audio heaphones.
