The chicBuds are retractable, decorative earphones to use however you receive your music: iPod, portable CD player or personal computer. chicBuds are detailed with genuine Swarovski Crystals transforming which makes them not just functional, but fun! The chicBuds come in both black and white with five delicious flavors (or colors): Blueberry, Grape, Watermelon, Sour Apple and Marshmallow! There are some limited edition designs including crosses, hearts, and awareness ribbons, as well as RockBuds for the men in your life. chicBuds have a unique retractable feature that keep the cords from getting tangled. Make sure you read the How it Works page so you don't break them!
The second item I tried was the Pink Tooth (other people call them "blue tooth") ear piece. As you can see, below, it is a beautiful piece. The ear piece came with 3 various sized tips to find the perfect fit in your ear. I am using the smallest one. There is also a black "hanger" that attaches to the the ear piece to give added security. Some people can get a secure fit with just the bud, but I needed a bit more. After a couple of days, my hanger broke, but chicBuds offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and my new hanger is on its way.
The sound quality is great! In fact, my husband can hear me better on the Pink Tooth than when I call him using the phone! I've had some trouble getting used to the push button on the ear piece to receive calls. But I think I'd have trouble with any ear piece. It will just take some getting used to.
I have one problem with the Pink Tooth, but most people won't encounter this. I wear hearing aids in both ears. And the Pink Tooth and the hearing aid don't both fit in my ear at the same time. There is a volumn control, but it is still a little quiet for me. I don't know of any blue tooth accessory that has extra loud controls.
I've really enjoy using the Pink Tooth when I'm walking. I have music loaded on my smart phone. I put the ear piece in my ear and start walking. If I get a call, the music automatically pauses while I take my call.
Both the chicBuds and the Pink Tooth retail for under $50.
