When I stumbled upon writing a review for BassBuds I was in the market for a new set of earbuds for my iPod. My last pair was something I picked up in the checkout line in Target. They were cheap, convenient pink, and fit marginally better than the crap earbuds that Apple gives you when you purchase an iPod. I have had my old earbuds for about 5 years now and they were beginning to become long overdue to be replaced.
Now, I had never heard of BassBuds before, so I admit I was more taken in by the Swarovski crystal accents before I started to read up on the product’s features (this girl get distracted by shiny bling, what can I say). However, when I reviewed the product features on BassBud’s website, I was overly giddy with anticipation for my earbuds to arrive in the mail. Two weeks felt like an eternity! Here’s why…

I won’t lie, I never knew earbuds could have features, lol. Again, I waited patiently for my buds to arrive so I could see if this product really lived up its description.
And then I had a little package arrive!
Then I opened said little package…
…I checked out its contents…
…and popped these bad boys into my ears.
….and just WOW!
Once I popped these buds into my ears I was in love. I barely felt them! They were beyond comfortable to the point that I began to worry that the little foam/silcone disks would get stuck in my ears and that I’d be making a trip to the ER to retrieve them (which was a good thing they didn’t since I really was trying to save my cash for some Black Friday shopping).
Then after plugging the buds into my iPod, I turned it on using the little answer/end call switch (which also serves as n on/off switch when used with your iPod) located on the cording. This switch has become my favorite BassBud feature. Then I realized that digital music can sound awesome outside of listening through a stereo speaker. I was totally floored by the sound quality. Actually, I never really even knew iPods had a good sound quality?!! Here it was my crappy earbuds trashing my experience all along.
I think I walked around my house listening to my iPod with my BassBuds for an hour after they arrived in the mail. I was so blown away at the sound quality, so impressed at how comfortable they were, and so happy they were so cool looking too (love that bling).
I am in love with my BassBuds, and I haven’t even had a chance to try these earbuds with my smartphone yet! I use Bluetooth in my car, but sometimes I just want a non-Bluetooth way to use my phone outside of my car without having to wear that silly Bluetooth earpiece. Let’s face it, unless you get a a barrage of phone calls all day long, or don’t mind looking like a tool-bag, the Bluetooth earpiece is not for you. I don’t take too many hands free calls and sometimes using the speaker phone just kills the quality of the call. I cannot wait to try out my BassBuds during a call.
All in all I am really happy I had a chance to review BassBuds, even happier that I have a special coupon code for all my readers to get their own pair of BassBuds for $30.
