Personally, I think that in-ear headphone models are quite unappreciated and not exposed enough by most peripheral brands. Coming from a gaming peripheral manufacturer background, most times any earphone product was released a minimum stock would be ordered, barely any stock will be released to stores, and all reviews, promotion and various other advertising avenues were not generally touched on.
In a bid to get some more in-ear reviews on TweakTown, I ended up buying some myself. Now, you're probably wondering why I chose this set and let me start by saying it certainly wasn't planned. I was shopping at my local Officeworks for some stationary and came across this beauty for $2 AUD sitting in a 'bargain bin'.
What first stood out to me was the fact that this device has a "cotton cable" as pointed out on the box, alongside coming with some seemingly-comfortable soft rubber inner-ear pieces. I picked them up, took them to the gym for a test and boy was I surprised.
Read on for my thoughts on this 'diamond in the rough' product.
Featuring a 10mm "professional speaker" putting out 20-20,000 Hz in the frequency department coupled with an impedance of 16 Ohms and a sensitivity of 102dB, it's apparent that these are no Sennheiser, Ultimate ears or Shure competitor, but for $2 - you should already be surprised.
The J10 Black earphones also come with a 1.2m cotton cable and connect to your device through a 2-ringed gold plated 3.5mm jack. There's a handy one-year warranty thrown in, however, it's hard to find exactly where to claim this - I would assume it's only directly through Officeworks, as it seems to be an OEM product reproduced by this large retail chain.
Pricing & Availability
We've already mentioned the price-point and it's ridiculous. Once again, $2 AUD from the bargain bin or a normal price-point of $3 on the Officeworks shelves.
What's in the box?
Due to the price, the package is extremely simple, as you can imagine. What I didn't realize at first, however, was the fact that this produce comes with three different rubberized ear pieces in total, meaning that people of different ages and sizes should have no issue using the product.
The other advantage of different sized inclusions means that everyone has the ability to take advantage of the passive noise-cancellation as seen through all rubber ear offerings.
