Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I picked up this product as a pair of travel earphones that wouldn't get tangled in my bag. They work fairly well, are inexpensive, never get tangled when using them correctly, and are perfect for my use. ReTrak has provided a decent solution for my needs.
The specific product I am reviewing is linked below.
For starters, the aesthetics of these earphones are pretty standard. On one end, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack. In the middle, there is the retractable system/mechanism with a prominent ReTrak logo on one side and it's blank on the other. On the other end, there are the earphones themselves. Directly below the earphones, there is a plastic wire guide to adjust the length of the cables to comfortably go around your face without the wire touching it. The wire itself actually consists of two separate wires stuck together, one for...
Don't waste your money. I should have listened to the other reviews - it fell apart almost immediately and it was impossible to get the wires spooled back up. The sound quality is terrible; I'd have been willing to overlook the sound if it worked as intended, since it was primarily purchased for it's ease of storage, but it's a failure.
The design itself is inherently flawed because the wires split into two for the earbuds, and it doesn't spool them correctly because of it. If it had been a single earbud mono design, it might have worked, but this doesn't and it's not worth 10 bucks. It's cheaply built and I expect that even if it had worked it would have fallen apart within a few weeks anyway. Save yourself the trouble and skip this.
These headphones offer as good of a sound quality as one can hope for from small in ear headphones priced under $20. Intended for use with mp3 players, they offer the highest sound quality one can expect from an mp3. They come with 3 sizes of rubber ear-pads assuring everyone a snug fit. They are sturdy enough to survive daily use. The automatic spool sets makes them ideal for use as companions to portable music players. When not in use, their ability to immediately wrap around the centre spool prevents them from tangling wile in the pocket of your trousers or bag. The spool "ratchets" when they are extended, allowing you to make the cable as long or short as required. They can be immediately retracted whenever they are not in use, eliminating their falling underfoot and being damaged when allowed to dangle. Their is also an in-line volume control and microphone, permitting their use as a mobile headset on a cellphone.
