BudFits Earbuds Holders Reviews

BudFits are just right

Posted

Pros: Works with several brands of buds, holds well, comfortable

Cons: Packaging should inform consumer that they work with other brands as well not just iPod

I received my BudFits in their bright, easily identifiable marked package.  Opening the package was easy, unlike many products nowadays that are so encapsulated in plastic that you need industrial tools to open them.   My BudFits were frosted clear in color; a good choice for a discreet appearance.   The material is a pliable semi-hard plastic, which is homogeneous and not just a hard plastic with a wear-prone soft touch coating as many products nowadays are.   I found the design to be comfortable and secure, finish was smooth with no sharp edges or anything that might cause discomfort.    I was able to use my non-iPod head phones with them with no...

Budfits are Great for Moving Around.

Pros: They Stay Put !!!!

Cons: Have to fiddle with them to get it on.

I wasn't sure what to think about these Budfits when I first got them. All I knew was that I was sick and tired of earbuds not staying in during physical activity. Any time I tried wearing earbuds and exercising they would always shake out of my ear and when I sweat they wouldn't stay in at all.   I've been using Budfits now for several weeks and I have yet to have an earbud fall out while using the Budfits. I has even tried hard to shake them out and couldn't do it. They just continue to hold the buds close enough to the ear to maintain the great sound quality.   Budfits do take some fiddling around with them to get them on. But, once they're on you're good to go. So,...

Works great!

Pros: comfortable, highly functional

Cons: packaging looks nice but is mostly plastic, not very eco-friendly

I received the BudFits in exchange for signing up to do a product review of them. I often use a Motorola SD9 Bluetooth headset with my cell phone to listen to music while skiing and mt. biking as I haven't found a suitable headphone that will comfortably stay in my ear. BudFits is the solution!   I opened the package, followed the simple instructions and voila, over the ear headphones! Putting the BudFits required a slight learning process and is a two handed job for me. Once in place, however, you can forget the things. I set mine up so that the speaker points back to the ear on an angle. This directs the sound nicely so that I hear music in very good quality and can...

BudFits Earbuds

Pros: weight, relative softness, ease of use

Cons: relative firmness

I used these to ski, workout and to listen to movies on my tablet. It took a bit to get the fit to feel comfortable, but once there it was good. I am used to an in-ear-canal style and this was quite different. The fit with the iPod earbuds was quite nice. These allowed for individual adaptation on each ear, and allowed you a shorter process when using them after the first set up time.  I did not like how my ears felt (sore) after using them with my helmet. The extra material just did not work for my head shape. Also, I got a little concerned with the effectiveness of these and the iPod earbuds in blocking out sound. I do like to hear what is going on around me while skiing, and...

Pros: Comfortable, Effective

Overall: I am very satisfied with the comfort, effectiveness, appearance and sound quality provided by Budfits.  I would recommend them to anyone needing to use earbud headphones while doing a physical activity.     Comfot: Budfits fit comfortably over the ears, no discomfort from the seams in the plastic molding.     Efffectiveness: Budfits stayed in place without issue or readjustment needed during jogging and weight lifting.     Impact on sound quality: Budfits hold the earphones just outside the ear, not fitted into the ear as they would be during normal wear.  This allows outside noise to be heard more easily while wearing the...

Useful but with caveats

Pros: Keep Apple earbuds in place during activity, improve overall fidelity of sound, lightweight and unobtrusive

Cons: Move iPhone inline microphone/control switch to useless position if used as shown by manufacturer, can only use well with symmetrical Apple earbuds

The biggest gripe many people have with the earbuds that Apple includes with the iPod and iPhone is the generic shape: they don't fit many people's ears by default, with the fit getting worse as Apple tweaks the design to look "cleaner."  As for myself, Apple's earbuds in their default setup merely "balance" in my ear canal, refusing to stay put if I do anything resembling movement.   My typical solution has been to purchase aftermarket earbuds that are in-ear models with silicone fitting baffles.  These tend to reproduce sound well and isolate outside noise, which means I can set the volume lower and preserve my hearing in the long term.   However, this...
