Fix In-Ear Headphones with Mic3
Price: $36 to $60 online
The big selling point for these Skullcandy Fix In-Ear Earphones is their remarkable ability to comfortably remain fixedÂ in your ears when youâ€™re exercising. I tried them while on a treadmill and also on a bike ride, and neither sweat nor bumpy asphalt caused them to dislodge. Fix headphones really are comfortable. Nice!
No matter how well earbuds stay in place, theyâ€™re useless if the audio quality is terrible. Fortunately, I think only audiophiles will object to the audio quality these buds deliver. Bass comes across well balanced if a trifle muddy at high volume, but certainly not enough to bother the average user. Overall, the sound is rich without being over-bearing.
Skullcandy Fix affordable earphones come with a built in mic that works well, but youâ€™ll have to memorize the position of the buttons because the switch is placed too high to see when the buds are in your ears. This is a small matter, however, since it doesnâ€™t take more than a minute to figure out the buttons that increase or lower the volume or that interrupt the music to enable you to take or make a call if youâ€™re using Fix earphones with an iPhone.
