In the world of wireless technology, one would think I have dispensed of earphones a long time ago. I suck at untangling wires BUT I excel at swearing when I can't (and scared a few passengers on the train). After discovering the amazing bluetooth technology on my new Samsung Galaxy Note, there's just no going back to wires. Being the anal retentive person that I am, I have a few written requirements. The headphone has to be 1) small 2) portable 3) easy to use so that I don't have to lose more brain cells than necessary to figure out the contraption 4) affordable 5) comfortable as I have to wear glasses.
I'm seriously, I do mean seriously impressed with this new toy of mine. The SoundWear headphone costs only £19.97 and has well over 150 glowing reviews. It folds up into a tiny nifty thingamajig. The band rests comfortably on the back of your neck with all the controls on the right ear. When you get a call, it stops the music and you press the big round button to answer and talk (there's a microphone). I pop it on when I'm watching YouTube videos in bed so that I don't wake the hubs up. I can walk around and the music doesn't get cut off as long as you're within 10 metre radius of your phone.
