Sort of a review anyway..
I picked these up over at ThingFling.com for about $15 for two pairs, you can still find them online several places, but I believe they are officially discontinued by Altec Lansing.. at least I couldn’t find them on their website.
Here’s a bit about them:
The Altec AHP112 is stereo earphones that are ideal for MP3 & CD players, Portable cassette players, video gaming systems and multimedia computers
-15mm high power neodymium drivers deliver full, rich sound
-Connection: 3.5mm plug
-Frequency Response: 85Hz – 20kHz
-Compact design for comfort and easy portability
-Protective winding case for ultimate convenience
So they come in a hard plastic sealed case that you’ve got to cut open, a pain really to get them open, worse than the standard sealed clamshell boxes.. They’ve got the specs and features listed on the back and you can see the headphones and their case through the front of the package.
The sound quality is decent, especially if you consider the price I paid, but even if they weren’t that cheap and I was looking for a set of headphones I’d consider these. Altec Lansing is a good brand, I’ve had good experiences with their products, and they’re very well known for quality audio goods. The sound is not wonderful, but it’s surprisingly good for a set of low cost ear buds.
I like than and will use them as a spare set if need be, my wife is happy with them, especially the included carry case, she doesn’t have to worry about them getting tangled up etc now.
