Got a request for a review of the new Air Drives earphones.
First impression was they took a little getting used to. I had to take off my Skull Candy Giro helmet phones. Minor issue. Then I had to get used to wearing something other than earbuds (which I cannot wear when I ski because they block out the stuff I need to hear and they hurt my ears because of their shape).
I got on the lift with Jackson and kept my iPod down at a moderate volume. Not a lot of bass, but that is due to the fact that they are over the ear, not in the ear. The sound quality other than that was great. But the best part was that I could have a conversation and have some background music too.
I was seriously impressed. I can use them in the gym (which I am not going to because I am lazy and busy). I can use them while I am working so I can hear my wife bitching at me about never paying attention to her, but I can also conveniently claim to not be able to hear her at the same time. Best of both worlds, I can ignore her selectively and have an excuse.
They are a little pricier than iPod earbuds, but comparable to my over the ear noise cancelling headphones (that I can't wear except on road trips and planes). I am stoked because they are awesome and because I GOT THEM FOR FREE. Thanks Romeo for letting me check out the new technology.

Good information. I will have to try them for myself now!
