I wanted a cheap pair of noise cancelling ear buds (the kind you push in that seals against your inner ear folds) and saw a pair on sale at Staples for 10 bucks. I wondered how bad they could be, so I bought a pair.
Well, they are – and I am not exaggerating here – the very worst sounding head phones that I have ever put on. And not by a small margin.
When they are loud (and that’s not very), they sound like you are under water. When you turn them down, they sound like those thin-sounding crystal radio sets we used to build as kids (in the 60s and early 70s.)
Hmmm … absolute shite. Don’t waste your money … buy anything else.
