The Good The Ear Pollution Toxix headphones are inexpensive and offer a fun design that's available in several colors.

The Bad The Ear Pollution Toxix headphones feel cheap, don't fold down, and aren't very comfortable. Sound quality is only so-so.

The Bottom Line The Ear Pollution Toxix headphones might be a suitable choice for budget-conscious users with distaste for earbuds, but others should look elsewhere.

Portable headphones come in two main styles: in-ear and on-ear. The former comprises the ultratiny earbuds and canalbuds that you place at least somewhat inside your ears, while the latter often features a headband and circular earpads that rest over the ears. iPod accessories maker iFrogz offers several models in both varieties, but the on-ear Ear Pollution Toxix headphones are the subject of this review. Thankfully, the $20 set doesn't totally live up to its name, but neither does it sound particularly good. The earphones offer a hint of style and a lightweight design, so they could work in a pinch for those on a budget, but the Toxix are far from the best portable option out there.
