Product Review - Lift Audio Icon Series 6 mm Premium Earphones
As part of the Amazon Vine review program, I selected a pair of Lift Audio Icon Series 6 mm Premium Earphones for review. I had two purposes for this... I have an iPad now, and I thought a decent set of earphones would be nice. And second, with my kids around, I never HAVE any earphones that seem to stay in one place for very long. So why not kill two birds with one stone?
Fair warning says I'm not an audiophile of any sort. I don't listen to a lot of music, so most of my usage would be watching videos or not disturbing someone around me with sound. What I *did* want is something that was comfortable, stayed put in my ear, was loud enough to hear, and if it could drown out a bit of noise in the process, so much the better. And this item delivered well on all counts. My first chance to use them was on a flight back from a conference, and I happened to be in the fussy-baby part of the plane. I pulled out the headphones (really nice hard case they come in, too!) and stuffed the earphones in my ears. Even without any audio coming out, the babies sounded like they moved to the back of the plane. And once I fired up a movie, it was even better. No babies, no crying... just me and the movie.
Of course, I found out within 10 minutes that it's not good to be watching certain scenes of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on the iPad when you're sitting in the aisle seat with people moving past you... Just sayin...
I don't know that I would rate these as a great deal at their $79 list price. They're nice, but they're not THAT nice. But at the Amazon price of $25, they are perfect for what I needed. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair if needed. But I'll be making sure I hide these, so another purchase will *not* be needed...
