They're not the prettiest casings out there, but camouflage on the front line was always intended to be frightening rather than fashionable we suppose.
Do you know your airfeets from your missile tips? Your verts from your nuts? Were you born after 1992? If you can answer yes to these questions then the Headfunk HFE243 Freakin’ Buds could be the earphones for you.
There’s definitely an emphasis on the skate culture for these earphones. Apart from the Freakin’ name, they come in a box that states that they are “Badass Earbuds”. Gnarly.
The lanyard style of the earphones is ideal for hanging a small MP3 player, such as the Sony Zappin, around the user’s neck. There are four colours available – phat black, red mist, orange tang and limey green – sounds like the line-up of an American boy-band doesn’t it?
Performance wise they should be pretty decent: High-performance 9mm micro-drivers, ultra-powerful neodymium magnets and Soft Silicone eartips for a comfortable fit.
They’re only £29.99 from here. Get some for a younger brother or a nephew as a present. I’m sure they’ll think they’re pretty sick.
