Are those earbuds you’re wearing? I guess they get the job done well enough if you’re trying to listen to music, podcasts, or audiobooks on the daily train commute to wherever it is you go these days. They’re practical on a very basic level, and they look like the earbuds that the guy next to you is wearing. And the woman over there. And the row of octogenarians en route to their salsa lessons. And the high school guy in the letterman jacket. And the geek he just shook down for lunch money. And the train conductor. And… hey, look! Everyone’s wearing the same earbuds as you.
If you’re going to be stuck in a crowd, why not stand out from it?
Try these Hi-Fi Mahogany ETZ Headphones from 3Eighty5 Audio on for size. Comfortable? Check. Stylish? Oh, double check. But how do they sound? Well, these specs (which also cover the included microphone that you get with the headphones) should give you audiophiles an idea:
- Driver Diameter: 50mm
- Frequency Response: 20-20,000Hz
- Impedance: 32ohms + 15%
- Sensitivity: 115dB + 03db
- Max. input power: 50mw
- Microphone Sensitivity -58db + 2dB
- Microphone Operating Voltage 4.5V
- Microphone Impedance: 2.2K
- Cable length: 1.5m
As you can see, they’re comparable to some of the higher-end headphones on the market (like Beats by Dre) at a fraction of the cost.
And even if your commute-mates catch on and start trying to cramp your funky fresh style by buying their own Mahogany ETZ Headphones, you’ll still stand out from them because — being covered in real, lacquer-finished wood — every set looks different! As mentioned before, the headphones come with a microphone and a carrying case that’s just as cool as its contents.
Somehow, I see Ron Burgundy (of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy — endorsed by Diana Pirillo as “the second best movie” ever made) wearing the Mahogany ETZ Headphones. Perhaps these are where his apartment’s rich mahogany smell comes from?
They’re kind of a big deal.
