Headphones and earbuds are important accessories for your tablet, smartphone and laptop these days, especially with more people working in coworking and open office spaces. Frends just launched a series of cool headphones and earbuds for women that appeal to my inner fashionista (yes, she’s in there – deep down inside, I found her).
There are three styles: earbuds named Ella (below), headphones named Layla (below), and larger headphones with padding named Taylor (above). Each style comes in white with gold or rose gold accents or black with silver accents. I got a few pair to try out and I’m sure you want an answer to the most important question: how do they sound? Well, I think they sound pretty darn good – crisp and clear. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend using them for is heavy activity, like running, but if you’re just sporting these around town – you won’t be disturbed by outside noise and you will look pretty cool.
I especially like the detail on the earbuds, the control buttons (is that what those things are called?) and the connector. The metal earbud detail might at first feel a little cold and weird, but you get used to it pretty quickly.
They come in some seriously fancy packaging, too – but for $100 earbuds and $150 headphones, it’s expected. They also come with a nice zipper ouch, too so you can pack them neatly and keep them from entangling everything in your bag while you travel.
