First Impression: I was looking to get a new pair of Ear Buds, I heard good things about Frends and wanted to see how they stacked up to the other Ear Buds. I immediately loved the audio quality and comfort of the Ear Buds. I was looking for something that would be great for workouts, snowboarding, biking and just to listen to some tunes when I want to tune out the outside world.
Fit: The Coupe fit comfortably right out of the box, the sound is great and the audio quality is crisp and clear. I noticed that I dont need to have the volume cranked to hear the music, but when I do it crank it sounds amazing.
Performance: Frends Ear Buds sound great, never fall out of my ears. I did have some issues with the headphone jack pulling out of my iPod while I was snowboarding. This happened multiple times, so I put a small piece of Gorilla Tape over the headphone jack to keep the Ear Buds locked in. This was the only issue I ran into with these Ear Buds. The sound quality is amazing and a little tape keeps me rocking on the mountain.
Colors: Multiple Available I chose Rasta (Red, Yellow, Green and Black for Testing)
Overall Impression: I am really impressed with the audio quality of The Coupe. I also like the comfort and ease of use. They are the most comfortable Ear Buds I have ever worn and they fit well under my Smith Vantage Helmet.
But still allow me to hear skiers and riders around me too. I would recommend these Ear Buds if you are looking for a new pair.
Price: $30.00 USD
