Like many men, my husband is in charge of the outside of our house. This often means using loud machines like a weed wacker, chainsaw, tractor, rototiller, woodchipper, log splitter, etc. This is 1. not good for hearing and 2. not the most pleasant of things to listen to for any duration of time, especially being so close to the machine.
When I heard of the Ultimate Ears 200vi Noise-Isolating Earphones, I really wanted to try them for my husband. He doesn’t ever “treat” himself to things, and I know he loves listening to his music while working, so I figured a nice set of earbuds that can allow him to hear his music (or my too-frequent calls to his cell while he’s at work, on the road)…might be something nice for him. I was right. Its nice for him to be able to pop his earbuds in and be able to hear his music while doing things in the yard- I know for me, having fun music on or at least music I enjoy really makes the time go faster so why not him?
These earphones are full of features. Something that was great for me to see right off the bat is the 5 different sets of ‘cushions’ for different ear sizes- I swear, I have a very large head and tiny ear openings- most earphones actually HURT my ears when I try to wear them and ultimately just don’t. I did try these and was happy to see they have a range of sizes, glad to see a company that realizes we aren’t all the exact same size. I know my husband likes the control being on the cord so if he has his iPod tucked away safely he doesn’t have to pull it out to adjust his volume. I can’t speak to how these work with a phone because he’s not tried it with a phone, nor have I- but judging by the quality of sound with the music I’d not hesitate to use these with any phone!! Plus, they are made by Logitech and my experiences with this brand have been nothing but excellent. Definitely something I recommend.
