BoxWave’s MiniBuds are a very interesting kind of headphones, as they can roll up themselves. This simplifies storage and transportaton in your jacket pocket(no need for the Tetran Cable Winder):
The sound quality of the in-ear headphones is really, really good. DJ Shadow’s epic organ donor sounds next to perfect, techno and classical music don’t pose any problems either.
MiniBuds ship with two sets of ‘ear pads’. This is a great idea, as I always tend to loose the ear pads over time. But the MiniBuds fit in so well that I didn’t even need the ear pads in everyday use:
The only issue that I had with the MiniBuds are the rollup mechanics; they don’t always roll the headphones up perfectly. This is no real problem, but is annoying for a perfectionist like me.
Overall, congratulations to BoxWave. Most well-sounding head phones cost at least 100$, Boxwave’s MiniBuds cost less than 25$. The sound quality is great, and the rollup system makes headphone transportation easy. If you need good in-ear headphones, Boxwave’s MiniBuds are the way to go!
