The Good The iBlink Earbuds are very cheap, and they feature fun, integrated LEDs that blink with the music. The battery is rechargeable, and the package includes silicone eartips to help with fit.

The Bad The iBlink Earbuds are cheaply constructed. Many people will not find the sound quality passable.

The Bottom Line The iBlink Earbuds may be gimmicky, but at least it's a fun gimmick that has a good chance of appealing to the younger set. Steer clear if you're picky about audio.

Cheap earbuds are not hard to come by; there are hundreds of sets on the market that won't cost you a penny over $30. And all of them are, by and large, indistinguishable from one another. Of course, there are the rare exceptions, such as the iBlink Earbuds. This $25 set features integrated LEDs that blink to the "beat" of the music, and while the construction is cheap and the sound quality won't be passable for discerning listeners, the flashing light gimmick is sure to appeal to more than a few tweens and teens.
