Hi. If you have an iPod or other music player, this post is for you. The headphones that came with your iPod are ok but, honestly, you’re missing a lot of the music. I want to tell you that it’s really worth it to upgrade and buy new headphones.
There are many styles and types of phones: over the ear, on the ear, ear buds, and inside the ear, for example. And you can spend hundreds of dollars on really great headsets.
I have the kind that go in my ear. They have soft moldable foam that I twist with my fingers and expand in my ears to block outside noise. The sound quality is amazing and I love that I can’t hear outside stuff like engine noise and screaming kids on a plane! The ones is have are Shure SE110 and cost about $100.
I’ve had a headset from Costco that was about $75 and they were fine. I’ve tried the Bose and some off brand noise-cancelling phones but, for me, smaller and portable is better.
The point, though, is to trade up to better phones than the ones that came with your iPod. You’ll really be glad you did!
