Sound Intone I80 Wire Headphones (with Mic & Volume) Review

I've never had a good quality headphones to use. All I've ever had were headphones that have small ear pieces, or ones that fit into your ears (which I hate). I'm happy to get Sound Intone I80 Wire Headphones (with Mic&Volume) to review.

These headphones are one of my Christmas presents to me from my husband. I stash away some products I get for review to wrap as presents. Of course I've pretested them. They work! I've needed a set for work so bad. I have to do a lot of tutorials online, and have a problem hearing over the distractions in the room. I have 2 co-workers that talk non-stop. Not that there's anything wrong with talking, but I can't concentrate to listen to tutorials, or to write tests when idol chit chat is going on. That's just how I am. Now when I go to write a test I can block out the noise with these headphone. I can listen to classical music, and still concentrate. 

The headphone do block out outside noises way better than any other headphones I've ever had. The sounds is great. I do have problems in general with a lot of things fitting my head. I have a long skinny head. Apparently my head is smaller than most. These headphone are adjustable, but not quite small enough to fit snug on me. I feel a little like they could slip down off my head. 

The thought has occurred to me before that I may need kid sized headphones and hats much like my sister needs kid sized bracelets and watches.

I do like how the cord has a volume control on it. It's nice to be able to adjust the volume of your music in a few spots. 

It's great that the plugin for the headphones is detachable. I like this for going one place to the next. If my headphones are going from home to work I like to be able to unplug it during transit. 

I do like the colors they come in:
  • I got white on the outside with black on the inside to review. This looks good with my computer that I have. Macs generally are white, silver and black.
  • The also come with black on the outside with red on the inside. Red is my favorite color, so I like that combination.
  • My pick would have been their color combination of white on the outside with red on the inside. I just aesthetically like the look of that one.

They are only $29.98, but on sale for $13.98. Part of what's held me back from buying new headphones, or putting them on a list for someone to buy me is the cost. I don't use them all the time. Usually headphones like this are $50 and up. I find the cost of this to be really good!

I found the microphone in the headphones to be a little flaky. I wasn't out to get a microphone though.

Those sound great. I only use headphones when running, so I prefer the ear bud type for that.

Those sound like really nice headphones. Both of my boys use headphones ALL the time.

Allison doesn't like in ear earphones, so this is a great option for her. They look really comfortable!
