My first tech post featuring earphones


Hey guys 

This post is something a bit different to my normal posts

I usually post about beard oils, male beauty products, fashion, lifestyle and on the odd occasion, music, but this will be my first ever kind of a tech post. 

Technology posts are something I would love to do more of but I've not had the time or the opportunity yet.

I wouldn't say I'm an expert in technology but I do know what I like and I'd like to think I'm a good judge and know how to use stuff. 

In the future I really want to get more into gaming posts and videos...so watch this space. 

Like I said, this is my first tech post, I bet you're all dying to know what sort of technology I will be talking about aren't you?

Well it's something that fits in with my lifestyle really well and is probably something that you may use yourself a lot of the time too. 

 And it is earphones.

For me I don't think there is any better way to relax than laid out on the bed, earphones plugged in,  listening to and watching your favourite YouTube videos, whether it be music or one of your favourite Vloggers and Youtubers. 

We have loads of pairs of earphones in our house though, but they are not the best quality ones in the world - they just do the job they are meant to
(I think most households will have a pair of these, you know, the ones you get free with phones)

But when it comes to wanting to use them they all seem to go missing at the same time - don't ask me where they go to but I always seem to get the blame for some reason...

If you know me or follow my blog, you will know that I'm a big fan of music and have been since I was young.
In fact certain songs really got me through a few hard times as a kid, I think this is part of the reason I carried on being such a music fan. 

Listening to music is something I do most days whether it be in the van at work, in the gym or just been lazy and chilling at home. 

I love listening to it in the van where I can play it as loud as I want to and can have a good sing along too - I bet people in vehicles next to me think "What a weirdo!".

In the gym musics normally blasting out through the speakers which I find really helps me get in to the zone.

But it's at home where I use earphones/headphones the most - I do actually have a very expensive pair and without naming them I bet you can imagine which ones they are...if you don't know then here's a clue...

They are made by a Dr and his name rhymes with Jay....

But when I wear these I really struggle to get comfy especially when I want to lay on my side, they are just too bulky.
I've attempted to wear them to the gym a few times too but I could only use them when I did my exercise bike routine - everything else was a no go and so is where small earphones come in handy. 

Let me introduce you to the earphones I've been using for the last few weeks and let me fill you in on how I've been getting on with them...


You can get the The earphones from Amazon


The earphones are the Brainwavz S5 which are a dynamic driver based earphone, fitted into sleek, all-metal housing with tuned speakers for extra balance providing you with detailed sound and a smooth bass. 

The over the over-the-ear design and flat cable allow the S5 to securely fit into your ears - even during physical activities - I put this to the test and took my bike out for a ride for the first time this year and they really didn't disappoint - they didn't fall out once. 


You also get a really cool case to house the earphones in too - perfect for protecting them in my gym bag.

There is also a selection of tips included tips to suit all ear sizes, you get standard tips, bi-flange and Tru-flange tips and all are either foam or silicone.
I found this really interesting because I've never been able to find a type of earphones with tips to fit my ears, normally they always fall out, which I find very annoying.

I was pleased I was able to find the perfect size fit and also the fact that they are really easy to change over was a bonus.


The earphones have a really sleek design and look like a real high end item. 

I'm not going to bore you with the spec on the earphones, I will just tell you how they performed. 

Due to everyone having a music taste which can be very different to mine, I wanted to test the earphones using a few different styles of music.

First, because the music I like is Rap with as hard a hitting base as possible to go with some great vocals this was the option I looked at first.

I tried the earphones on a few devices - IPhone, laptop and IPad - and was really impressed - you didn't miss a beat and you could hear every word spoken really clearly...even the swear words ;) 

I even cranked the volume past the red on the iPhone and the sound stayed balanced and didn't start to crackle...but of course I wouldn't suggest you do this - it was very loud. 

I found the ear tips to be great sound blockers which I realised because I did the hoovering and lawn mowing whilst listening to music through them and I could hardly hear the machine noises at all.

Quite brilliant for an earphone because it is normally the larger headphones which act the best sound blockers.

I also watched a number of my favourite Vloggers too to see what the sound was like with no music and just people talking.
Once again everything was really crisp and clear, almost as if I was in the room with them. 

I even went out of my way and listened to a bit of classical music too and once again there was no fault - the sound was great and the higher pitched vocals sounded just amazing...but I'm not a big fan of this music so it didn't get tested for that long...


I can see these earphones getting plenty of use in the future and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who uses earphones a lot and may be looking to gain as much sound quality as possible through earphones.

I hope you enjoyed my post and please let me know what you think in the comments below.

  1. A good pair of headphones is always needed. I'm guilty of just picking up the cheapie ones from the drugstore, but these seem pretty cool and a good quality too.

  4. The mister has commented before me, but the only problem I have is that I have really small ears, so half of these buds don't fit me :o(
