Hi everyone! It has been a long time since I’ve posted here on my blog, and for that I apologize. A lot has been happening with me, and if you follow me on Facebook, you are all up to speed! I retired from digital designing and I’m now substitute teaching (putting that Master’s Degree to work!). I really enjoy it, which is quite a relief!
In the meantime, you can still find many of my templates in my Etsy shop, plus I’m still selling my cash envelopes and doing Adoption Profiles. Still very busy, but very happy with my decision to step back from designing.
One of the things I’ve been curious about over the years has been learning how to become one of those lucky people who gets to review products for companies in exchange for a discount on that product or receiving the product for free. I did some investigating and put my name out there and I was chosen to review a couple of sets of headphones!
A little backstory: I am a HUGE podcast fan. I listen to podcasts all day long when I am home by myself, and often when the family is around, too. I’ve recently discovered the awesome convenience of listening to audiobooks, too! I always have my earbuds with me so that I can make good use of my time by multitasking and listening to the news, current events, funny podcasts, informational podcasts and audiobooks. NEED my earbuds. Love them. However, one annoying aspect of having in-ear earbuds is that I can still hear everything going on outside of my little ears, even if I really don’t want to! For example, say I’m doing the laundry and standing at the counter in my laundry room with the drier going and my earbuds in. I have to turn the podcast WAY up to be able to hear it. Annoying.
When I saw the opportunity to review a couple of pairs of headphones in exchange for a discount, I jumped at the chance. I have now tried out the Darkiron N8 and the Sound Intone I68. They are both so awesome!
They both have a little sound slider and pause button on the cord, they both have padded ears and are both foldable. What I really like about them is that I can put these headphones on and actually hear my podcast/book without having to turn the volume way up. They definitely mute the outside noise.
Truth-be-told, I gave the orange and black Sound Intone I68 headphones to my son, and claimed the red and black Darkiron N8 set for myself. The earcups are just so comfy!
Yes, I did receive these at a discount, but I’m very pleased with my purchases and happy that I had to opportunity to review these headphones!
