Tumblr, I need your advice.
I want to get in-ear headphones, because, honestly, walking around the city wearing over-ears while looking at my phone isn’t the safest thing to do.
Only, something about my ears makes it so that all standard in-ear headphones hurt a fair bit with even short use. Slightly ergonomic models don’t fare that well, either.
I’m wondering if anybody here has the same kind of issues and have suggestions for earbud models that might work for me.
I have the same problem. I haven’t found a solution other than some cheap brand that had multiple size and shape rubber bits for inside your ears, but they have since quit working. If you find a decent brand let me know.
I bought three sets recently on the strength of the review I read, and I can vouch for the sound quality. The problem for me is that I listen to podcasts and talk shows using one earbud in my left ear. These earbuds are specific to each ear, so to use the earbud with the mic and control button, I have to snake the cord up the back of my ear and insert it upside-down to make the correct angle.
There’s no indication of this on Amazon or anyplace else I could find, but the plug is of the right-angle variety. I use the LunaTik iPod watch, so I prefer a straight plug so it goes up my sleeve better. Without any information, I assumed it was the normal straight plug. I think that’s a pretty important detail to communicate to your potential customers. When I used the TuneBuckle, I had to have an angled plug. I would have passed these up, assuming they were straight.
If you’re not weird like me (and who is?) give these a try.
I have an interview with Anheuser-Busch.
I don’t even drink their beer.
When my mother lived in Virginia (around 1998, I think), she got a technical writing job at Philip Morris. She said it was surreal that there were pro-smoking posters filling every wall throughout the company. At her orientation meeting, the manager told her about the two cartons of cigarettes she’d receive per month. The way he was talking, she was scared that they were going to make her smoke.
She mustered up her courage and asked, “I don’t HAVE to smoke to work here, do I?” Luckily, the answer was no.
I hope they don’t make you drink Bud, Yayaa.
