iLeaf In-Ear Headphones For iPad + Giveaway!

by on March 20th, 2011

Update: Contest is over folks! Our winner is: “Kevinmatthewroach”

With my recent iPad 2 purchase, I’ve been considering getting a new pair of headphones. I currently use the Apple In-Ear headphones and, so far, have been very happy with them. However, I was recently contacted by ShopBGA who suggested I try the iLeaf Earbuds.

The features were impressive; Noise Canceling with microphone from Ounuo leveraging dynamic drivers, Powerful neodymium magnets for balanced sound, Hands-free microphone (iPad 2 FaceTime!), Multiple colors, a Tangle-free cable design, and three sets of silicon ear gels.

iLeaf Earbuds With Microphone

Tangle-Free Design

The real sell for me was the tangle-free design, as for me, the tangle issue is the only major flaw in my Apple In-Ear headphones. The iLeaf tangle-free design, which has to do with the flat design of the cable, means the headphones rarely ever get tangled. The one downside about the cord however is that there is no cord management to keep the long wires together such is found on the Apple In-Ear headphones and other high-end headphones.

The Fit

Aside from the cord, one of the first things I noticed about the iLeaf headphones is that they seemed bulkier than typical in-ear headphones. The design seemed like it wouldn’t fit well with my ears.

After finding the right size ear gel, in which case was the smallest for me (medium with other headphones), the headphones were initially uncomfortable. After a few minutes, comfort began to improve but it just didn’t seem to fit right, almost as if the headphones were too thick in my ear.

Now, it is worth noting that the only comfortable in-ear headphones I’ve stuck with are the Apple ones. I’ve tried many and none are very comfortable for me. While this doesn’t mean the iLeafs won’t work for you, it does mean that if the majority of in-ear headphones don’t fit well for you, then the iLeafs probably won’t either.

Sound

In terms of sound, the immediate thing that hit me was the bass. The bass on these headphones is just fantastic and you really notice it. The noise canceling feature works very well, but this depends on the fit of the headphones. Since the primary function of headphones is to provide great sound, the iLeafs deliver.

Microphone

Lastly, the iLeaf headphones can be used for both music and taking phone/video calls with the optional (as in you don’t have to use it) in-line microphone. In other words, like with most headphones today, and specifically Apple earphones, you can listen to music and answer a phone call without having to remove the headset.

If You’re Looking For Headphones…

The iLeaf headphones are available for $49.95 and the buds are further available in six colors: Black, White, Blue, Green, Purple, and Orange.

Overall, if you’re in the market for a new pair of in-ear headphones, whether with a microphone or not, the iLeafs delivery an enjoyable experience with great sound, fantastic bass, a tangle-free design, and a good price point.

  • Justin

    Nice headphones. They would be great with my new iPad.

  • Mbelo88

    I’m definitely hurting for some new headphones. I’m pretty picky about headphones but the idea of a built in mic is too appealing to go for audiophile IEMs. These seem to fit the bill.

  • Mbelo88

    I realized I didn’t say where I would use these buds. So i guess this is my official contest entry. I Definitely would use on bus to school, and while beside a girlfriend who seems to be uber sensitive to noise.

  • Peter

    Use them everywhere I go

  • Steve Jobs

    I will use them in the bathroom, when I have to go hopefully the loud bass will make a vibration so great that I will create the newest and greatest iOS device, the iShit!

  • Michael

    I would use them at Home and during Lunch for Facetime and using the Djay app…

  • Jason

    I would use them in the office!

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ Ex

    Mr. Jobs,

    I thought you were making wireless earphones?

  • Steve Jobs

    Ex, I need these headphones. I am having “shitagate” problems when using the iShit prototype in the bathroom. It doesn’t come out clearly, you woulda thought that with the problems we had last year with the iPhone my dumbass engineers would have come up with a solution, but alas, it is all up to me to make my consumers happy. I know consumers would love the iShit and that is why I need your help with these headphones to make sure the latest batch of iShit’s meets quality assurance practices.

    Steve Jobs

    Sent from my iShit

  • Steve Jobs

    The wireless headphones will have to wait as apples current priority is releasing the iShit

    I’d use them with my iPhone while walking to and from work or other appointments – nothing like listening to tunes, knowing you won’t miss a call, and answering within the press of a single button!

  • Anthony

    I’d use it at work because my hands get too dirty to handle my phone and when I go snowboarding so I don’t have to take my gloves on and off all the time.

  • Fastrace24

    I would use them in aircraft on long flights! Aircraft technicians fly a lot. Love earbuds and noise canceling is a huge plus.

  • Snooki

    I’d use them to drown out the airplane noise at my house. I live right near an airfield!

  • Elect

    The real question is not where I will use them, but rather where I will not use them. I carry earphones everywhere…

  • Tjrt

    I will wear them when I am enjoying the sun outside! Gardening, walking, socializing or just enjoying the end of our Canadian winter:)

    I love your feed.

  • Cobrastrike_188

    I would love to have there to drown out my noisy co-worker neighbours. I have to crank the volume really high to get rid of their background noise, but with the iLeaf buds noise cancellation, I wouldn’t have to listen so loud.

  • V.J.
