I generally buy pretty cheap heaphones or earbuds. Wouldn’t mind a better quality pair, but I have other things to spend my money on. Luxury items like the mortgage, gas and groceries! I do end up paying in anther way though, because the “X” brand tends to be uncomfortable, and the sound can be tinny. I fall asleep with my mp3 player, listening to soothing ocean waves, mood music or a Bible study. The earbuds tend to press that tender spot right outside my ear canal, but I need the background sound or my brain just refuses to quiet down and I might be awake for 3 hours making to do lists into the year 2013. So I was very glad to hear that ComplyFoam was sending me a pair of their Whoomp! Earbud Enhancers. I opened the package as soon as it came. Basically, the Whoomp! Earbud Enhancers are a clever little add-on that turn your flat earbuds into comfy stay put canalphones!
Here is a quick product description directly from their site:
The unique shape seals the entrance to the ear and funnels pure sound directly into the ear. New one-size-fits-all open-cell foam design is ultra soft, enhances bass and stays in place while you are active. The perfect earphone accessory for those who listen to music while on the go! Whoomp!™ are compatible with all standard round Apple iPod®/iPhone™ earbuds (not in-ear design)and most other round earbuds 16-17mm in diameter.
I found that these little gadgets actually improved the hollow sound from my cheapo earbuds! It was actually a little richer and I liked hearing one of my favorite songs last night without the little zzzing sound for a change.
They are incredibly comfortable, and to test their “stay put” claim, I did a very energetic Dance to Mike Posner’s Cooler Than Me. *Blush* Anyway, they don’t fall out. My last test was to listen to my music while my daughter played Aqua on the stereo… Yep, they really help to cancel out background noise. If I sound awfully picky for someone who has $4.00 headphones from the super duper cheap store, I’m not.
I just wanted to see if what they said about these little enhancers was true. It is. I think these are an inexpensive way to upgrade to a better sound quality.
ComplyFoam.com will have a new website launching in Mid-April and will also be giving away some expensive earphones, tips and other stuff, so stay tuned!
