It's quite often that you'll encounter annoyingly-tangled wires when fiddling with in-ear offerings while at the gym, on public transport, or looking for some peace and quiet at home. A company named Zipbuds has tried to solve the issue with their line of zipper cable products - what we have here is the Zipbuds Pro mic.
As the name suggests, it comes with a zip and a microphone. Alongside it being neon yellow in color, the manufacturer claims all of your tangles will be a thing of the past, with an easier product experience to be had for years to come. Can this product live up to its self-driven hype? Read on to find out our thoughts as we compare it to the previously-reviewed $2.50 Jenkins J10 earphones and the Tt eSPORTS ISURUS DUB.
Connecting to your device through a 3-ring 3.5mm jack, these earphones offer a handy zipper in order to keep your cable untangled, an in-line control button which sets out to pause, play, skip, answer and hang up calls and rubber earbuds for comfort and passive noise cancellation.
1.6 ounces in weight and providing you with what they claim as a ZBX high performance drivers alongside a noise-cancelling microphone, there is unfortunately not any specific driver or microphone statistics readily available for viewing.
This is a little disappointing as basically every company these days claims noise-cancellation and high performance or enhanced bass - without the specifics, it's hard to really drill down into the product itself, so you're going to have to assume what my listening experience shows to you is correct to your standards.
Pricing & Availability
Setting you back a reasonable retail price of $35 with free shipping from Amazon, this product sits in the same price range as the Tt eSPORTS ISURUS dub and offers a similar amount of benefits and positive features.
What's in the box?
This product comes in a very simple package and unfortunately does not contain any kind of carry pouch or case. A carry pouch can be viewed as an inexpensive necessity when you're looking to keep the product clean and free of wear when kept inside a handbag, laptop bag or backpack.
There's three included different ear cap sizes included for different customers which is a now-standardized and undeniably very handy inclusion.
