Yup, Back to School means Christmas is literally around the corner!
Oh I know what you're saying- well they look like normal headphones to me!
NOPE! These headphones have a secret- you can 'flip' out the earpieces and turn them out, so they become speakers! Yup- you get a 2 in 1 set of headphone/speakers! Which means you save money!!!
You can see the diference in these headphones when you first get them!
A VERY sturdy box, that I actually had to cut open, and unroll like wrapping paper!
As you can see, what you get when you open the box, is a padded top, with your instruction and warranty booklets. Pull that out and you 'the egg' as the kid called it! Ah but look closer- you have a ring on the sturdy carrying case, to attach it to your backpack or messenger bag! Open the sturdy 'egg' case and you get your first look at your Flips (they also come in white, FYI). You know they're different, from the way they fold up!
They are easy to unfold and can be used with ANY device, as long as it has a standard stereo jack audio slot. As you can see, we used them with my Nexus tablet (Miss Grace didn't want to be photographed with them on (7 going on 14, sigh). I've also used them with a desktop and my cell phone with no problem. Just remember they have no cell call controls, and are strictly headphones. And no, there is no bluetooth capability. Hence, why you need the audio jack.
Flips feature custom vented ear cups and plush memory foam padding on every contact surface, to make them feel very comfy and lightweight on your ears. the adjustable headband, allows them to be easily adjusted for different people. Their patent pending technology provides crisp, clear high definition sound experience, no matter what you are listening to. There is no separate volume control though on them, so your volume is controlled by the device you are using.
Flipping out the Flips is very easy- you just grab the ear cup and 'flip' literally. You just turn it around and bamm, you have a great set of speakers! This is SO handy when the kids are doing homework together, they can both hear at the same time. It could also be VERY handy for those long trips to relative houses this holiday season, when the kids are sharing a dvd on the ride!
The supercharged speaker sound provided by a powerful Li-Polymer lithium ion battery, that is USB rechargeable, for hours of extraordinary playtime. The battery is only used when the Flips are flipped out to be used as speakers, and not while being used as headphones. After my initial charge, we haven't had to charge the headphones yet, which is pretty impressive! Also is impressive, is that Flips have a 90 day warranty!
So if you're looking for a great set of headphones, that can also be speakers, or a great gift for preteen/teens, be sure to check out Flips today! You'll love them as much as we do!
