[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> I've said it before and I'll say it again. The headphones that came with your MP3 player aren't doing you any favor which is why I always recommend upgrading. Now, even if you don't have a lot of money to spend on headphones you can still find a pair that is better that ones that came with your MP3 player. Take these for example. These are the Sony MDR-EX36V Headphones. It will only set you back about $25 and they will beat the stock headphones that came with your MP3 player in both comfort and sound quality. They also have a couple of features that you don't generally see in headphones in this price range. First, you have the inline volume control. Now this is great if you don't want to take out your player to turn the volume up or down. And there's a couple that I don't have here with me, a travel pouch and a cable wrap. Now the cable wrap comes in handy because it keeps it from getting tangled when you're storing it and not using it. A couple of downsize to these, they do have kind of a cheap plastic construction and the cable does feel pretty thin, so I have a little concern for durability, but for $25, for improved comfort and sound quality, I think these are well worth it. You can find them in a variety of colors black, pink, blue and red I believe and as I've said there are definitely a worthwhile replacement for the ones that came with your MP3 player. I'm Jasmine France and this has been the Sony MDR-EX36V Headphones. ^M00:01:08 [ Music ]
