Too expensive – Genuine Apple Earphone with Volume Control for All iPod Shuffle (3.5mm Jack/90CM) Reviews

posted by WesleyWex on 02/08/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Has volume up/down and the action button (play/pause/answer/hang up) - Seems to be genuine apple, although I wouldn't be surprised if these were refurbished.
Cons:
- No microphone - Bad quality on low frequencies, but nothing that setting the equalizer on "Treble Reducer" won't attenuate
Other:
I guessed this would have the microphone, but it doesn't, and since it has the fourh connection the iPhone will think there is a mic so if you answer a call with it the other person won't listen to you.
Bottomline:
I can't comment on the quality yet, but I wouldn't encourage people to buy it because of the price. I assumed it had a microphone, since it hasn't it's not worth it.
