Friday Favorites: Couponing
Ok, on to more fun things, like my review of AURIA earphones!
The sweet folks at AURIA contacted me a few weeks ago about doing a review and giveaway on my blog. Of course, I was more than happy to oblige!
So what exactly are AURIA earphones? Here is a little information:
Only the purest material is used in our LOBE technology. LOBES delicately conform to your ears and hold the earphones comfortably in place even after hours of use.
You choose the exterior look of your earphones by simply swapping out your Personalizers with another design in mere seconds.
Fit for extremes (and mere normal activities).
The XFit System keeps earphones in place during invigorating runs, strenuous gym workouts, rides in a favorite terrain park or walks down a familiar path.
Expanded Band sound.
Hear breathy vocals, rousing guitar riffs and heart-thumping bass come to life. Our audio engineering produces a vibrant, open sound stage.
Active lifestyle ergonomics.
Our premium quality, durable cables are non-tangling and deliver performance during your most active moments. The cable length is suitable for a variety of sporting activities. Key surfaces of the earphones are moisture resistant
This is what I received in the mail the other day: The Exceed style, which retails for $33.99:
PINK! AWESOME! I was even more thrilled to flip the package over and see they came with a set of personalizers!
When I first checked out the website, I was drooling over all the awesome options for personalizers. I love the pink running girl! They were super easy to snap in, too. The earphones also come with a little mesh case so you can keep the pieces handy. The earphones come with different sizes/sets of rings that you put onto the earphone to get the best fit in your ears.
Another thing I really loved was the volume control and buttons on the wire. No having to check my phone to change volume, etc. I also loved the clip! I hate having a wire snap against me when I run, so having the clip to hold the wire in place was so nice.
Look how cute!
The smallest rings fit my ears, so I put them in and I was off for my run! The earphones fit into my android phone easily (they also fit all kinds of phones and iPods, etc.) and I had no problem with the technical side of things. The earphones never fell out, never hurt my ears, and yes, I COULD hear ambient sounds! granted, when I pumped the volume up way high on an awesome song (with the awesome volume control, of course) I couldn’t hear as well, but let’s be realistic! At a normal volume I could hear just fine.
I ran three miles, and definitely give AURIA two thumbs up!
Be sure to check out their website, they have three different types of earphones!
