HAPPY FRIDAY GORGEOUS READERS!
You've already seen the different photos of my Frends "Taylor" Hologram Headphones on Instagram and twitter so I thought I'd get around to doing a really quick review on these if anyone is interested. They make two different size ear caps, this is the Taylor style which is larger over the ear and the Layla style has smaller earpieces that don't cover your entire ears. The Layla also cost less.
Refined leather and holographic metal headphones from Frends. Soft touch fabric covered cord. Three button volume microphone and phone control. Metal hardware. Memory foam ear cushions. Full, rich sounds from a 30 mm driver. Compatible with MP3, cell phones and other audio devices. Jewellery-inspired design. Accompanying zippered carrying case.
Opinion: Obviously I love the fact they're hologram colored but they do have great sound quality. My Monster Tears drown out more noise in my opinion but these sound equally nice, not static-y like the thrifty brands. I also love that they can bend and twist into a few shapes allowing them to be stored in the adorable faux leatherette pouch that's included, making it easy to travel with. The metal hardware surface is easy to wipe away and the cable allows you to adjust the volume and skip tracks. The ear cuffs are also interchangeable allowing you to buy separate covers to switch up the style which is pretty cool. The fit is pretty decent but I would have preferred them to be slightly tighter around the headband. These are a little to clunky for me to use them while I'm laying in bed with my head on the pillow though so I save them for daytime use. The price is crazy steep even though they are gorgeous and the only reason I was able to buy them because Scoop gave me $30 off and they were marked slightly less at retail to begin with. I decided to splurge on them. They are boxed beautifully and compatible with all Apple brands and most mobile devices. A great gift idea for the glamorous music lover. Have a fabulous weekend. Stay beautiful! XOXO
