Runners, music fans, and whoever else might be seeking the perfect fit as I am; it's no big shocker that Apple has, once again, pulled it off. The bigger surprise is that they didn't come out with these bad boys any sooner. As mentioned, I have had constant issues trying to find headphones that both fit into my ears and don't fall out when I sweat. I have tested every pair out there to no avail. I had all but given up and resigned myself to my $15 Gummies that I have to replace every 6 months. Well, it turns out there is FINALLY a solution to my problem. Over the week-end I upgraded my iPhone 4 to the fancy, new iPhone 5 and with it came a pair of slick, ear-shaped headphones.
- > Insert shameless plug for my husband's company, Nextworth, here:
Want a new phone? Consider selling your old one to Nextworth for cash. Go to nextworth.com, provide some basic info about your phone and they will give you a quote for its current value. If you're happy with that number, simply mail them your phone using the prepaid UPS label that they provide. Done and done. Oh, and FYI - with my AT&T plan's upgrade deal and my Nextworth trade-in, I paid a whopping $30 for my the new iPhone 5. <--
Naturally, I was doubtful. No other pair has worked for me, so why would these be different? That said, I'm happy to try anything new if there is a chance it will be better than what I've got. My ears happen to be the size of a 10 year old child, so getting the old earbuds to fit was always tricky and once they were forced in they often felt unnatural. Not so with these. They easily fit and then sit perfectly inside my ears. Honestly, I barely know they are there. I have now run with them three times and they are snug, but not uncomfortable and they are not sliding out at all as I start to sweat or increase my movement. Not only that, but the sound is phenomenal. You don't have to purchase a new phone to get these babies. Apple is selling them as an accessory for only $29. Run, don't walk, to your nearest Apple store and pick a pair up. Eureka!!
