Put A Wang In Your Ear Hole

Do you remember five years ago, when you could spot an iPod or iPhone owner from a mile away by their standard-issue, white Apple earbuds? There's much more headphone diversity these days, but buds are still immensely popular and Apple sells bunches of them. Fanny Wang wants to stick it to Apple hard with Wang Buds.

Unlike in-ear headphones that actually go inside your ear canal, Wang Buds rest just outside. From the point of view of sound quality and ergonomics, in-ear monitors are better headphones, but some people find them uncomfortable, and hey, some people just like buds. For $US80, Fanny Wang gives you a colourful alternative to Apple's stock offering.

They've got soft-gel silicon tips that are comfortable and should stay put better than most other buds. If this is your style, Wang Buds are probably worth a shot because Apple buds are garbage. [Fanny Wang]



    "Apple sells bunches of them" Maybe because they come with the
    phone? Wouldn't really call that "selling" the buds. Although I do
    agree - they need to be outlawed for crimes against audio.

      Apple does sell bunches of them, the rubbish things only last 4-6
      months, and an iPhone contract is 2 years. Gives them time to sell
      you an extra 3-4 $30 headphones in the life of your phone. Or if
      you are smart you would buy some better headphones.

    What's this, insinuations of ear-sex and no Family Guy reference???

    Last time someone put a wang in my ear - it got a bit uncomfortable
    when it made a sticky white mess all over my face.
