The Good The affordably priced Moshi Mythro in-ear headphones are lightweight and fit comfortably. They sound good for the money and have an integrated microphone and one-button remote for making cell phone calls.
The Bad No carrying case included; no volume controls on integrated remote.
The Bottom Line The well-designed Moshi Mythro earbuds feature quality sound at an affordable price.
Quality earphones at an affordable price
The in-ear model reviewed here, the Mythro, is named in honor of mithril, the fictional metal found in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. Silvery in appearance, mithril is stronger than steel but considerably lighter. It's not surprising then that Moshi's Mythro Stylish Personal Earbuds are nice and lightweight. They're also comfortable, and feature excellent sound for the money, as well as an integrated microphone, making them a bargain at their price of $30.
Design and features
The Mythro earbuds come in a variety of colors, all of which have a two-tone design highlighted by anodized aluminum casing (aluminum may not be mithril, but at least there's a bit of metal in the case).
