Ever since I can remember, music has been an important influence to me. I listen to music nearly all the time when I blog and am on the computer. I use headphones so I can listen as loud as I would like without bothering family members or any neighbors.
When the great people at Flips Audio contacted me to review their Flips Audio headphones, I was happy to oblige.
What makes Flips Audio headphones different from others?
With a simple flip, you can go from listening to your music solo to letting others around you listen as well!

I found the headphones very comfortable and love the plush memory foam padding around the ear cups and on the inside of the headband. Even after using them for hours at a time, I never felt like they were uncomfortable and never felt sweaty around my ears. I really liked that they came with a zippered case for on the go.
I received the headphones in the black color and thought they were very sleek looking. I tried plugging them into various devices. Depending on the device used, I found that the quality of the sound from the headphones varied when used in solo mode. There was a big difference between the sound in solo mode when plugged into my iPhone versus my computer. While the sound quality was still good, there was a noticeable difference.
When flipped out and used in social mode, there was no noticeable difference in the sound quality on any devices. I felt that the sound quality was better when these were used in social mode with the speakers flipped out. The sound was richer and you could hear the bass much better.
Overall I think these would make a great gift for just about anyone who enjoys listening to music.
