Kid’s seem to have earphones surgically attached to them these days, plugged into their phones they can chat on the phone with friends, listen to music, play games. I have found especially with my daughter and I am sure that a lot of parents find the same, that kids get through a lot of earphones, either losing them or the wires get loose so they can only hear out of one ear.
We were sent a pair of Brainwavz Zeta earphones to try out and the first thing I was impressed with is that there was no needless boxed packaging, they were in a strong, clear, recyclable bag with a strong sticky seal.
Inside the bag was Zeta earphones, Velcro cable tie, 1 shirt clip, 3 sets of silicone ear tips in S, M & L sizes and a user guide/warranty card.
My daughter and I have been trying these for a few weeks now, well she did most of it and let me try them every now and again to test different things. One thing that stood out to us was the angled ear tips, this was a brilliant idea, as they fit so much better and are more comfortable in the ear and they don’t seem to fall out as much as other earphones we have tried. This was a particular thing Skye liked because she has tried other earphones in the past and they hurt her ears after using for a while.
The sound quality of the earphones is really good, not tinny at all, in fact, I would put the sound quality in line with more expensive brands on the market. Which means my daughter who is really into her music now does not have to compromise the quality of the music she loves.
As the Zeta earphones are compatible with practically any device with a 3.5mm jack socket you can use them in a lot of things. We have tried with iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android phone and they sound equally good in all of those devices. We liked that when using in a phone we could answer a call because of the in-line remote control and microphone. We could hear the call very well and the person on the other end could hear us well too.
Now that my initial testing was complete Skye was able to do her own thing with them, which meant she also took them with her to school so she could listen to her music on the bus and so far so good, I know she probably pulls at the wire a bit but there is no problem with the sound in either ear and keeping them wrapped in the Velcro when not in use I think helps a lot too as they don’t get tangled up.
Overall I think that the Zeta earphones are fantastic and great value for money at just over £15.
They would make the perfect Christmas gift or stocking filler for any who listens to music on devices regularly.
