Want to win these chic earphones? Keep reading!
I love the ipod that Alfie gave me for Christmas last year, but I didn't really like the standard headphones they came with. What I really wanted were earbuds with good quality sound and retractable cords. That second criteria is especially important, because tangled earphones and cables is a pet peeve of mine. I really HATE having to fish through a drawerful of wires to get to my earphones! I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world with drawers like these:
You'd think that earphone manufacturers would have figured that out by now, right? I've been looking and looking, dropping by Best Buy or Target or any electronics section hoping they'd have earphones with retractable cords, but no dice.
Until now. I first found out about chicBuds several months ago. As I hopped from blog to blog, I kept reading about bloggers raving about these cute, chic earbuds. When I saw the retractable cord, that was it: These are the perfect earphones. No tangles! No mess! And they're covered in pink Swarovski crystals to match my pink cellphone! So when chicBuds invited me to review their chicBuds and chicBuds JR. earphones, I felt like I had won the lottery.
These really are the perfect headphones. The sound quality is excellent and the cord is nice and sturdy. ChicBuds is the perfect name for them because they really are so cute. They are -- and this is the perfect term for it -- the most BONGGA fashion accessory ever. There are a whole bunch of different styles; we all love pink Swarovsky bling on our earbuds and the retractor. And I can't say enough about that retractor. Honestly, I don't know why anyone would NOT want retractable headphones! The built-in retractor eliminates tangles forever, and you can even adjust the cord to 5 different lengths so it works for everyone. Here's a short video of The Pea explaining how it works:
The cord winds around the retractor, so it can get a bit heavy -- but not to worry, there is a built-in clip so you can attach the retractor to your clothing or purse so there's no bothersome jiggle. That makes it great for working out, as you can see by this video of 3Po practicing his karate moves to the tune of Kung Fu Fighting:
