For $20 I doubt they're great but if you're not fussy and you're the type of person who thinks the bundled earphones that come with a phone are good enough, they'll be good enough.

I personally use Jaybird X3 wireless buds, they're more workout focussed but no reason they wouldn't be good around the house too. A bit more expensive sure but when it's something I use all the time and I expect it to last years, I'm okay with it.

I just use corded, over the ears type headphones doing the mowing and yard work. Better sound and good protection whilst still retaining the inline controller and phone mic.

For just general use i'm actually fine with bundled earphones. I tend to be a bit rough with them! If i'm gaming, or just sitting back relaxing with some music i generally like the better headphones.

Yeah in that case, I'd honestly grab one of those you linked. Plenty of people are happy with them, I personally think they look too heavy/bulky to be comfortable but I've never tried it so it's just an observation looking at the photos.

For $30ish delivered, it's worth the gamble IMO.

Just a question, is it legal to wear buds while driving here in QLD ?
To the best of my knowledge, there is no specific offence for wearing buds whilst driving, just as there isn’t for bluetooth earpieces, or earmuffs etc.

However there are offences for generally distracted driving (fail to maintain control, due care and attention and so on) where buds could potentially be seen as a contributing factor.
- Merged

So, are deaf people not allowed to drive?
They can, but there are additional medical reporting conditions TMR require before a deaf person will be issued a licence.

Thanks man. I was sweating on that like a nun in a cucumber farm.

Yes, they are allowed to drive.

My cousins are profoundly deaf and they drive.
To me, it’s scarcely different to then bogans with the fully sick audio systems in their cars; they aren’t hearing anything outside of their bubble.
