TweakTown Rating: 86%Manufacturer: Jenkins / Cablex / Officeworks

What's Hot


Lightweight and sturdy: You have probably come to expect this with most earphones, however, the cloth cable adds an extra depth to the sturdy nature.




Comfort for all sizes: The three different rubber ear grommets ensure everyone can have a go.


The price: It's just $2-$3 AU, seriously! How can you go wrong?


Comfort and sound that will blow you away for the price: Being certainly more comfortable than my Samsung Galaxy S4 stock earphones, it sounds better too.


What's Not


Lack of mid and high-range: You should come to expect this for something that costs $2, however, those that are lovers of sound should certainly look elsewhere.




Availability: Searching around the internet for the company 'Jenkins' doesn't bring back many results. It's likely this product is an OEM offshoot of Officeworks. Warranty could be an issue, however, for the price, it's not a deal breaker.



Final Thoughts


For $3 AUD, this product certainly blew me away and matched closely with market offerings as much as 20 times the retail pricing. The major drawback here is no microphone included, however, those who take and make phone calls are lessening as time goes on and the age of instant messaging emerges.




If you're a real sound enthusiast, I suggest you look elsewhere, otherwise, for those who want an easily-disposed-of and acceptable sounding offering, look no further.
