When I’m working at my desk, or taking some ‘me’ time away from noisy kids and dogs, I’m usually wearing headphones so I can watch my favorite shows while I work, or listen to my favorite music. I have small ear openings, so ear-buds are a pain to use, or they’re always falling out, so I prefer headphones even when I’m connected to my phone to listen to music.
I have a pretty sweet setup with a flat-panel TV hanging on the wall above my desk to watch whatever I want while working, and have the sound routed through my laptop so I can utilize headphones. I know, I’m a lucky girl.
One thing I’ve noticed about headphones is that they’re kind of bulky, and I’ve already lost one of my favorite diamond earrings when the ear piece of my headphones snagged it and yanked it out – I’m sure it eventually got vacuumed up when I couldn’t locate it at all. In that case, I wasn’t so lucky.
When I heard about Frends new Taylor headphones that are made specifically for women, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about them, assuming it was just an advertising ploy to get us to buy specific headphones. Well I’m here to tell you us women really do need headphones designed just for us.
White leather with rose gold – aren’t those pretty? Not only do they have a cool ‘bling’ factor, but they actually fit so much more comfortably than boring bulky regular headphones. They’re lightweight, so I don’t get that pressure headache if I wear them too long like I do from other headphones, and they don’t cover my earlobes, so they haven’t had the nerve to yank out any of my earrings.
The sound quality is phenomenal – they are not noise-canceling, but if I want to make sure I hear the kids, I prefer not to cancel the outside noise. They do muffle the outside sounds nicely, you know, in case you prefer not to hear the bickering. No matter what genre of music you listen to, you can crank it up and not worry about distortion or overpowering bass. Everything comes through crystal clear.
While I prefer wireless headphones (so I can step away from my laptop without stopping what I’m doing), I love that these have a fabric chord that doesn’t get kinked. They can also be hooked up to an iPod or iPhone and with these handy controls built right in to the fabric chord so you can control phone calls, adjust volume and switch between songs:
They also fold compactly and come with a soft zippered case for safe traveling – something I’m sure going to appreciate as we get ready for our big move across the country:
