I’ve spent a total of 8 hours in New Zealand, all of that spent in Auckland airport so I can’t really tell you much about the place itself. What I can tell you though is that I like a lot of things from New Zealand; South Gin, Whittaker’s Chocolate and Flight of the Conchords just to name a few.
I now have another thing to add to the list, Dearear headphones! The guys at Dearear sent your girl a pair of their Buoyant In-Ear Wireless headphones to take for a spin and spin I did (not like a spin class on a bike, ew, do you even know me?)
First up, let’s take a look at the packaging because I’m a superficial mofo when it comes to products. They come in a cute AF box which would be hella easy to wrap (because these things would make an excellent gift) that opens up to show the contents of the box like so…
Each pair of Buoyant headphones comes with a Comply™ ear foam set to get the perfect fit, 3 ear cap sets (in small, medium and large), 3 ear hook sets (in small, medium and large) to get them sitting snug, a USB charger and a cute little carry pouch to boot!
The headphones themselves look mad stylish – I’ve chosen
the white and rose gold version but there are a few other combos available too to suit your look. They’re also wireless, which means you don’t have to worry about yanking out the cord while you’re going HAM and they’re sweat resistant so you don’t have to worry about your new little cuties drowning in your filth. With 8 hours of continuous playback time, you don’t have to charge these babies everyday, once a week should be fine for the average user.
Pairing Dearear headphones to your device is simple – turn on the headphones, turn on Bluetooth on your phone, select the headphones and away you go. Next time around they’ll connect automatically. Charging is easy too, just plug em in and make sure the LED is lit up blue – when the light turns off you’re all set
Sound-wise these little things produce quite a good sound. Granted, I’m no expert when it comes to sound quality but as far as I’m concerned for the price they do exactly what they need to do. The sound is clear and crisp, so you can listen to podcasts, hip hop or jazz (ew, why?) and you’ll be a-ok.
If we’re talking comfort, Dearear headphones are surprisingly comfy. With the ability to customise with various cap sets, you’re sure to get the best fit for your ears and because they exterior is flat, resting your head on a pillow or stranger’s shoulder should be no problemo.
Inspired by the calm blue skies and neutral tones of New Zealand, the design of the Dearear Buoyant headphones is minimal and simplistic to deliver the dearest experience without extravagance.
