Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 6:27 Mins
First of all I want to state that these are the coolest looking headphones I've seen around for awhile, they look sleek and the zip is awesome.

Wearing these are comfortable, the zip doesn't irritate or scratch my skin when worn which is something I was pondering when I first saw them.

As for the sound quality, for most genres such as pop, rock, country etc.. they are very decent, however they really lack in bass; at the current time of writing this review, the packaging states "Extreme Bass", though the product description on both Amazon and VIBE's official website do not state it specialises in bass, so why is it on the packaging? Misleading if you ask me.

That's not the only negative thing about these headphones, when your wearing them on top of clothing to which they can move freely, the zip tag bounces around, to which every time it hits the cable, it vibrates sound all the way up to your ears regardless if your listening to music or not. Whilst this problem doesn't occur when the headphones cable are under for example a jacket, as the tab is secure and not able to move, a lot of people like to have their headphones cable out in view, so for them, this is going to be a problem.

Overall it's a decent product that looks great, but the negatives may bother some people to an extent that would ruin their music experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars VIBE Slick Zip Headphones - Red 22 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are practical, comfortable headphones with a good sound and a couple of extra features which are worth noting. The first is the extra silicon ear buds, which should ensure a comfortable fit. The second, and most useful, is the 'zip' feature. No more tangled cables as they zip up neatly in your pocket and then are easily unzipped to wherever you feel most comfortable once you wear them. Although these are red, they come in a good choice of colours - including blue, pink, green, etc, so presumably you can find a colour which suits. The only minus point I could find is that they do not come with a case, which would be nice. However, they are practical, well made and the zip feature is certainly a good answer to the problem of tangled wires and works really well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice rich sounding bass 20 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are really nice headphones, clear treble, midtones are good and the bass is nice and rich and warm sounding.

The only problem is the novel zip idea, whilst it's great for keeping them untangled, if you are wearing a coat, i.e. wrapped up warm, the zip is constantly rubbing on your clothes meaning you get a constant rubbing and rustling while listening to your songs, unless you thread it underneath your clothes.

Other than the rubbing noise, these are excellent headphones for the money with 3 different sized rubber cups for different sized ears.

Great value!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite an innovative design 1 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Vibe is a British audio company probably best known for their big thumpy sound systems for cars and boats, but they do also make a range of home audio for TVs etc and some headphones. These Slick zip style phones work better than I had expected and do stay quite tangle-free in your pocket or bag. They sound a bit harsh when new but benefit from a burn-in period and will sound better after a while.

I found them a comfortable fit with the original buds - although others are provided to suit your personal taste. The sound quality is not bad for the price range, although the "Extreme Bass" tag may be a little over optimistic! The zip creates quite a lot of noise rubbing against your clothing if you wear these phones when you are active - maybe a deal-breaker for some users - but they are OK when just sitting around.

The vibeaudio website has plenty of information about Vibe's products and shows an exploded view of these phones so you can see how they work - worth a look if you are considering buying a pair. I wouldn't use these as my main phones but they are really handy to just put in your pocket and have available when you want to listen to some music when you're out-and-about. They don't come with a case - but the zip stops them getting tangled so maybe they don't need one.

Vibe has designed a useful product with a reasonable sound quality and a stylish look - but active users may prefer a style which generates less rubbing noise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best earphones I've had in a long time 23 Feb 2013
By Armando
Colour Name:Green|Verified Purchase
First and foremost, I guess it's all about the zipper. I do not carry a handbag with me, so anything that helps reduce volume is welcome. In the case of earbuds, I always just roll them around my iPod, but of course, with time, normal earbuds acquire a nasty behaviour of tangling themselves, and it comes to a point where it doesn't matter anymore how many times you try to straighten them, they will insist on tangling. With these earbuds, that just can't happen! Firstly because the zipper stops the "double-cable section" from tangling, period; but also, because the part that is not zipper, neither is a normal cable, it's like some kind of braid that, in my opinion, looks more durable than normal plastic covering, and also more flexible. Also, they are in-ear, which, in my opinion, offer always a better sound quality than the rest (unless you can pay like over 150 euros for some high-quality brand headphones, of course).

But of course, as of the moment where I'm submitting this review, I've only been using them (daily, while I commute to and from college) for about a couple months.
