I was so sad when my Miss Marc (Marc Jacobs) Headphones broke recently…
My boyfriend was nice enough to let me borrow his Sony’s and guess what… they broke when I was using them too. I am very careful with headphones! I sware I have some kind of magnetic force field around me that fries technology… (Did I mention my 2007 Macbook crashed and then my sister loaned me her computer and I got the blue screen of death…during finals… !!!)
I went a couple weeks listening to music from ear buds, which never ever seem to fit me right no matter how many interchangeable sized buds come with them (I have a really small head and ears)… The buds fall out when I’m sitting still so when I went running with my sister I shoved them in and put a headband over my ears in an attempt to keep them from falling out. While running, the cord is swinging and hitting me the whole time, the buds fighting to pop out… It is a chaotically inconvenient nightmare.
Finally I saw an email from Groupon for MEElectronics Air Fi Runaway Bluetooth Stereo Wireless Headphones with Microphone (Black/Grey).
They have 4 1/2 stars and over 400 reviews on Amazon.
I got the black and grey ones, but they come in all different color combinations (black, red, blue, pink, white).
My favorite part about them is the Bluetooth! No cords!!!! No tangled mess!! Amazing.
I am 26 years old, and I have a small head. I have a really hard time finding the right fit in headphones and hats and sunglasses and things. I saw some reviewers comment that they slip off their head. I do NOT have this problem. I mean if I bend forward at a 90 degree angle they fall off quick, so I guess if you are doing work where you are bent over or something, then these headphones might not be best for you, however, you could re-position them at more of an angle on your head if necessary.
The sound quality is really great! I am certainly no audiophile, but I asked my boyfriend who is a musician what he thought and he wished that he had taken advantage of the Groupon deal too!
The range is impressive. I live in a really small 1 story, 2 bedroom house at the moment. I can leave my phone in my room and go anywhere in the house with these headphones including the basement! If I’m down there they sometimes go in and out really quick, but it’s hardly noticeable. Obviously the second I step outside they don’t really work, but that is expected. Don’t forget, this is with my phone in my room and these Bluetooth headphones goin all over the place!
I’ve even gone running with them. Some other reviewers said that their ears get really hot when using them. My ears do not get hot at rest, but when I am running they get hot initially and then my body kind of regulates so I don’t have any problem doing cardio with these. I got rid of the annoying velcro arm band for my iPhone and got a comfortable zip pouch that I keep on my forearm instead. It’s so much more comfortable. I don’t need to see my screen at all because I can use the buttons on the headphones to skip songs or increase/decrease volume. There is also a button next to the power button to answer calls.
I just tried the phone call button today and it works great. I can hear loud and clear and my bf said it sounded good, kinda like I had him on speaker phone.
Negatives: There are only a couple negatives that I can find at the moment. The first is the collapsible/fold-able design. I like this for storage purposes, especially because they give you a nice little black bag to keep them in, but sometime when I fold them down they make this little clicking noise. I am careful closing them because I’m afraid this could be an issue after a billion clicks open and closed. The other negative is that I’ve played all genres of music through these headphones and don’t usually have a problem. I have experienced the poorest sound quality listening to Louis Armstrong. His trumpet just kills the things. Also, some house songs..but usually only the annoying ones that I don’t care for anyway. That’s it!
I would definitely recommend them, even at full price :)
