I recently told you that I attempt to spend time on my treadmill. Notice the keyword in that last sentence was “attempt”! I make myself do at least three days a week, but I would be much happier if I were at five to six days a week. However, I wouldn’t be able to get through my work outs without my music which I obtain through my Palm Pre Plus. Through my workouts, I have learned that a good pair of headphones are essential to having a good time (did I just say good time and treadmill in the same paragraph?)! I have been using a standard pair of headphones that were lying around the house and they were less than desirable. When my new Grunge Buds showed up I was blown away by the sound these little headphones put out!
What are Grunge Buds?
Grunge Buds by Atomic 9, are the new headphones with plenty of bling! Set with Swarovski crystals, Grunge Buds come in unisex styles like skulls, cats, wings and panda bears, just to name a few. Grunge Buds may be cute, but they also offer superior quality noise isolation and are compatible with just about any device including Iphones and MP3 players.
I have to be honest, when my new pair of Grunge Buds arrived I thought “wow these are really cute” but I was skeptical that these cute ear buds could offer superior sound for such a small price! Well let me be the first to tell you…I was so wrong! We received the Panda Love Grunge Buds set with Swarovski crystals. The Grunge Buds also feature a matching cable choker with a blinged out panda paw! The earphones are tube-like and actually go into your ear a bit, which tuned out to be much more comfortable than I had anticipated. Three different sized ear buds were included to ensure a proper fit, as well as an extra cord with an attached microphone, so that you can use the Grunge Buds to talk on the phone!
The first feature I noticed was the deep, rich base that my other set of ear buds must have forgot to include! The sound was far superior to any set of ear buds I have used in the past and I actually get excited about listening to my music now! The microphone also seems to work quite well and certainly helps me abide by the new California Law that states I must have a hands free device in order to use my cell phone in the car.
To sum it up, Grunge Buds are cute, functional and offer superior sound, all for a low price point! I would gladly pay full retail for a pair of Grunge Buds!
The cable choker is movable, however I would like to see a longer choker, as even on the longest setting they are still easily yanked out of your ear easily, which can get a bit frustrating.
You can purchase Grunge Buds online for just $39.99!
