This article is about Coby Isolation Stereo Earphones with Volume Control CVE91BLK. I will name off the pros and cons so you can decide for yourself whether you want to invest in these earphones.
Here are the specifics:
In-ear isolation design blocks background noise.
High-performance 9 mm neodymium drivers for deep bass sound.
In-line volume control.
Super Lightweight Slim Design.
I can tell you first of all that I have a family of six and I bought 10 pair of Coby earphones (different models) at once in hopes that they would last awhile and that we would have extras just in case. Between all ten pair they only lasted about 3 months.
One reviewer said, “Not bad for the price.” I suppose that could be true if you don’t need a pair that will last for a long time. They are only 9.07 right now with free shipping at amazon.com
When I purchased them, they were on sale for 4.00 each.
The sound quality wasn’t bad but as careful as we were with them, I really think they should have lasted longer. I figured it was a popular name, so I couldn’t go wrong. Considering I bought 10 different pair, I’m not convinced anymore.
Who knows, maybe they’ve improved since last year when I bought mine.
Another reviewer said, “Good product, but not durable.” I would say this one hit the nail right on the head.
Now if your headed on vacation or something and just need a pair to get you through, they might be okay. Most reviews were actually good.
I cannot be sure if I bought this particular model or not, but compared to three other models of coby, 49% buy the item featured on the page of this model. The other comparisons were all coby except for one and the percentages are as follows:
29% buy Coby CVE92 Isolation Stereo Earphones
14% buy JBuds Hi-Fi Noise-Reducing Ear Buds
5% buy Coby Jammerz High-Performance Isolation Stereo Earphones CVE52BLK
They all run from $5.76 to $9.95 with the JBuds being the most expensive.
I buy our headphones for about 3.00 at Kroger’s grocery store. They are a generic brand, but they last longer than the Coby earphones did.
I’d say they need to work on the durability of these headphones if they want to keep a good name. I usually only do reviews if I like a product, but this one was not one of my favorites as you can see.
If I were wanting a pair of really durable headphones, I would probably stick with apple. I had a pair of apple earphones that lasted for almost 2 years. They range around $12.00 – $25.00 depending on which model you get and what kind of good deal you can find.
