RockBuds Review

RockBand-bigI am thrilled once again to bring you a review on a set of the pretty hip ear buds available for purchase at Chic Blvd. It only seems suitable with Father’s Day around the corner to give you the lowdown on their ever popular Rock Buds!

These men designer buds come in four designer styles – Rock Band, Electric Plaid, Chicks Dig Me, Rock Star, Wings Like Eagles, and  Green Camo. …and compatible  iPods, iPhones, MP3 Player, Walkmen, Computers, Airplane Connectors… Basically any listening device!

I decided to give these to my husband early and ask him to review them and here’s what he had to say:

Pros:

I really like the retractable cords. They keep the cords out of my way.

The clip is handy for both keeping cord sway to a minimum and pretending it is a little monster chewing on things.

The earbuds fit snugly into my ears and worked as earplugs. I work in a semi noisy environment, so blocking that extra sound is nice, and allows for a lower volume level (to preserve my hearing) because the extraneous noise doesn’t overwhelm.

Gold connections on the plug allow for a better quality if you have hi-fidelity audio on your device.

Good bass range.

Cons:

I listen to lots of audio that is not music. These work fine on high quality, professional-level audio. But as I turned on some lower quality audio, I could not listen to it. It lowered the quality. Even an fairly high audio drama ended up a mess because of the various sound effects. All this I could hear fine on my standard iPod earbuds. I can’t take the time to swap out ear buds when I switch from music to other audio.

Overall:

Nice look.

Theme on box clearly speaks of rocking out to music, so the intended use is clear.

No good for podcast listeners who listen to anything not recorded on the most premium equipment.

The $30 price points might be steep, but wont be an issue if you want a really good music listening experience.

There you have it. I have my own set of Chic buds and absolutely love them but unlike my husband, I use mine with music.

Thanks to Chic Execs a company which was created to promote small business campaigns, I’m was able to let you know about this product.
