I do not often come across a product that I have fallen in love with and felt compelled to share with others about – but these Flip Speakers have given me reason to tell you just ho much I love them.
What has such a major appeal to me is the fact that these sleek headphones can be converted into room speakers with a quick turn of each ear piece which provides a loud volume so you can share with others in the room. These speakers can be used with any 3.5mm jack, which enables you to share music from your mp3 player, computer or other source that doesn’t provide a loud enough volume to share with others in a room.
I must also tell you that I had never considered headphones like this because I thought they looked uncomfortable and possibly heavy – these are neither of those things. They are very light weight and provide a perfect fit over your ears which creates almost a selfish environment that is just for you. The part that wraps over the top of your head is unnoticeable and you do not feel it at all because they are fully height adjustable.
They also come in a great zippered case that is durable to withstand being in a book bag or in a glove box or wherever you store it while you play hard. With a simple turn and fold these guys, along with the charging cord, fit nicely inside the case and you don’t feel like it is a hassle either because it is so roomy.
The sound quality against your ears is a perfect volume with the headphones preventing sound from outside from entering in. Since I have been attending college, I have found that so much information is placed online (like audio lectures, video clips or sometimes entire lectures), and since I wake up earlier than the rest of the house, I found I can slip these on and not disturb the rest of the house and that I am not distracted from the sounds of our dogs or noises outside.
The sound quality that is put out in the room when you are sharing is superb and is loud enough to vibrate the surface of whatever you place them on when you want to jam out with music with your friends or family. I turned these guys to room speakers when my granddaughter was hear and let her jam to some of the tracks I have saved for her on my computer. The sound that comes from Flips is better then the two speakers in my laptop.
These also have a cool factor, since both of my sons (who are 19 and 21) were anxious to try to find a way for them to be the new owners of them – sorry boys these are Daddy’s. They are perfect for older or younger and there is no worry of feeling these aren’t hip or cool! I love them!
