This review came at the request of my husband of course lol. Now at first Kicker sent me a IKick I500 to review, but due to some technical difficulties we had to switch to something else. Well i figured it would be some amp, or speaker that would be impossible for me to use or install LOL.
Because isnt that what you think of when you hear Kicker??? It was to me!
Thats when i was told about these great new additions to Kicker.. Earbuds! I was so pumped up to test these, maybe more than my hubby! So the EB101s arrived in 4 colors (black, green,pink and silver).
My husband choose the black and we began testing. We tried several different types of music and volumes. There was something i noticed right away….i could not hear what he was listening to when they were in his ears! How great! That ment to me that the sound was traveling where its suppose to..in his ears LOL. So i wanted to test them on my hand..if i laid these on my hand..even just softly, what would happen?? Guess what…the same thing!
So my overall thoughts on these? I have to agree..worth the price! Im sure you can find some sales out there somewhere on them so if 50 is not in your budget..try ebay or maybe even crutchfield.com or Amazon.com for a better deal.
Colors- I wish i could keep the green ones, they are so pretty. My take on the rest are high quality, very nice vibrant colors. The ear bud attachments are nice, the grey set feel like that memory foam stuff! These actually stayed in my ears and im really surprised because i usually never buy earbuds for that reason. These..stayed with no problem, plus with 4 different sizes, i am sure one will fit you.
The Y cut “ribbon” is actually made of fabric instead of plastic so it wont catch on your clothes and such. Very nice quality and craftsmanship.
What i expected from Kicker were Noise Isolation Earbuds ..i got the most awesome Noise Isolation Earbuds!
Where can you buy them- Kicker.Com & Select Online electronic stores (Ps- Amazon has them for $36-$40 depending on color and Free Ship!)
Worth the cost? – YES!
