Excerpt: The draw of these buds is the cool gold knob on the outside, the bit that broadcasts your musician’s savvy. The cord is made of a fabric that’s pleasant to the touch, resistant to tangling, and evocative of a guitar cable. The headphone jack has gold accents over its textured, easy-to-grip handle, which makes inserting it feel like you’re getting ready to shred on a tiny Stratocaster.
Pros: Design cues from one of the coolest names in music. Durability abounds, especially in the fabric cord.
Cons: Underwhelming bass and treble. No volume control on the in-line microphone.
