They are the latest in High performance headphones with a
"Hands-free mic controller."
Bassbuds have been seen on alot of the top celebs at the moment.

Alesha Dixon, Dan Kelly Capital Radio and now....drumroll...me!!!

 Christmas is creeping up fast so if are you looking for something elegant, excellent quality with a fashion twist then Bassbuds maybe a great choice.



Packaging
My bassbuds arrived extremely well packaged and wrapped securely in bubblewrap.

I loved the presentation of these Bassbuds, you get a lovely modern black cardboard box which opens like a jewellery box, perfect as a pressie for someone or treat for yourself. 

The Bassbuds themselves sit snugly into a velvety flock formed base with a set of 3 sizes of white silicone earbuds showing (underneath you have another 2 sets of buds)


Description
Lifting out the flock tray underneath you have a FREE accessory bundle consisting of a gorgeous velvet black pull string bag, to keep your iphone and Bassbuds in; along with another 2 sets of different types of earbuds and an indepth book on all the different fashion colours Bassbuds have to offer and a quick user guide card.

Booklet showing all their colours to perfection.

 Microphone user guide card.

You now have 6 pairs of silicone tips and 3 pairs of memory foam tips to choose from, 
(the other 2 white buds are on the earphones, not missing.)

 Without the buds

Black Silicone buds in 3 sizes.

 Memory foam buds in 3 sizes.


Your whole Bassbud kit

The High performance Headphones
I am so impressed with these headphones, I have a few pairs already but nothing on the excellent luxury quality of these Bassbuds.
I absolutely love the genuine swarovski crystals in the ends of the buds as it really adds an elegance and luxury to them, making them stand out to any other earphones out there. I had no idea how gorgeous the crystals were until I really had a close look at them, they really catch the light and look stunning in sunlight as well as looking like jewellery in your ears girls.

But you dont have just an elegant luxury looking pair of pretty headphones you also have superior sound quality with deep rich tones; something I can never get enough of ..I absolutely love bass and the headphones produce this by the bucket.

Use with your MP3 player, iphone, smart phone or laptop.

 Opinion
 Like the celebs out there..."I love my Bassbuds" yelling from treetops!!!
I love the elegance they have and the beautiful crystal ends are stunning and gives it a high quality feel before you even listen to them mixing fashion and music together beautifully!
But down to the music once you have listened to the high quality performance you wont need any other pair of earphones again, the music is crystal clear, bassy and the trebles are super crisp.

The 50 inch anti-tangle, durable double-wrapped cable means you have plenty of length to attach it to your phone/MP3 player and leave it safely playing in your bag or coat pocket.

You have an inline MP3 Controller with an excellent quality button which gives you simple control over your music and calls. No more fumbling around in your bag or pocket when a call comes in or if you want to change song, simply click your control button.
  • To answer and end a call simply click once,
  • Play and pause click once,
  • Click twice fast to get to next track,
  • Click 3 times fast to go back to previous track,
  • Click and hold for connection to your voice control commands.
All of these controls work well and are well defined, no rocky buttons here, just a nice solid button, I havent tried the voice commands as I havent got them activated on my iphone yet, but will add the details on that soon..doncha just love technology!
These easy to use commands make it easy to listen to your music and receive calls at the sametime, a simply addition to your phone and ipod makes life easy....I'm all for easy.

The small Mic is fixed on one side allowing hands free calling and answering.

Fashion Colours
Most earphones look like any other earphones you can buy and you cant really see if people have a £100 pair or a £5 pair, now you can be more fashion concious and individual by making the earphones yours by the choice of colour you buy.
We all have our favourite colours that we love to wear or accessorise with our clothes...now you can match your headphones without compromising on quality of the music.


 You have 20 stunning colours across 2 exciting collections, so there is something for everyone. Making the product fun to wear and yes girls you can match it to your clothes or favourite bags. My favourite colours are the red, purple and pink from the Classic collection. The Fashion collection has an unusual fashion mix of 3 colours clashing with metal casing, coloured earbuds and different coloured cable for those that love their colour mixes. These are even a bit too colourful for me, I'm a classic kinda gal with just one colour which sets of that stunning Swarovski crystal perfectly!

The bright red is absolutely stunning.

 Once in the ear it looks like you are wearing jewellery and will compliment clothing and jewellery etc.


Im over the moon with mine as I received the Platinum to review a beautiful deep silver making them look so expensive especially with the stunning crystal ends. 

 Left speaker front, right crystal rear.

I love the choice of earbuds as all 3 types are super soft in the ear, but my favourites are the memory foam ones, they really are so comfortable you forget they are there, I often listen to music at night and use them to drift off to sleep. Most earphones you cannot lie on your side, but if you swap to the memory foam ones at night you can fall asleep with them in without waking up with bruised ears...so many of you must have done that in the past with other makes...lol!
The fact you get 3 sizes in each means the earphones will fit most people sitting securely in the ear without falling out. My favourite the memory foam buds form to your earhole sealing the ear to get the best sound...just brilliant!

Do they block out noise?
I have tried many headphones earbuds in the past which are awful at blocking out external sound, so Gadget girls reviews tested some scenarios.
Does it block out TV on normal sound levels - YES
Does it block out the radio - YES.
Does it block out my own footsteps and normal home sounds - YES
I did also try this with the different earbuds supplied too and the best for total blockout was the memory foam buds wow I love these.


You also get a lovely black or white velvet bag depending on your colour choice to fit not only your Bassbuds but your iphone too so you technically gain a FREE case. Plus you can always buy them separately too.
The bassbuds are light and powerful and have a fusion of fashion and music with no compromising of quality. I have listened to all types of music the last few weeks since recieving these to review from pop to R&B, punk and rock, jazz to indie and all genres of music sounds superb. They are deliciously basey...as the name says...a bit of a give-away...and the music tones are amazing for such small earphones. Im in love with them and I can never get enough base so these are my perfect earphones.

These are one of the most affordable pairs of high performance earphones money can buy, I cannot recommend these enough, you will pay so much more for buds that are nowhere near the quality of these, let alone the colour fashion choices; honestly guys you soooo need these!!!


If you are going to own 1 set of headphones for yourself or a friend it has to be Bassbuds and through December if you use my code BB38479 you can get £5 off, yes I did say £5 off.
Im so happy that I can give you guys something back for reading my review.
Thank you and enjoy!

  1. How do they sound in a laptop? The beats I have are fine in my phone but distorted when I plug them in my laptop

    1. Im glad you like them on your phone. I think it will be to do with your laptop if they sound distorted. Nip to your specific laptops site eg Acer and download the latest audio driver for your sound chip.
      Hope this helps

      Just wondering if it doesn't work well in the laptop because the headphone output is designed for a stereo miniplug (i.e. 3 conductors - left channel, right channel, ground - separated be insulating bands) as opposed to the 4 conductors (which include the microphone).

      Wouldn't this would also prevent the Bassbuds from working in a ipod?

    1. Hi thanks for the question, no Im afraid thats the one thing you cant do, that would be a nice touch to add to these gorgeous buds I must admit.
      But the inline MP3 Controller has an excellent quality button which gives you simple control over your music and calls. No more fumbling around in your bag or pocket when a call comes in or if you want to change song, simply click your control button. They are great quality sound and the bass is gorgeous. Hope this helped.
      Thanks for coming to GGR.

    1. Aw huge thank you hun, really appreciated. Ive just popped over to your blog too, love your photos so detailed; plus you have made some great points about needing an L shaped connector, Ive not had that problem but can see why it could be.
      Glad you liked the same colour Platinum is so elegant, but Im after some pink maybe a red too soon.
      Thanks again x

  5. Thanks for the review...quick question, I see they are compatible with Smartphones but are they compatible with iPod Classic? I haven't been able to find an answer to this question and that's the only thing stopping me from buying immediately!

    1. Hi Caro thanks for the comment and question. I still love mine and Ive reviewed a few and they still stand out the best for me.
      Yes these will be compatible with your ipod Classic. ipod are selling their newest earphones with a Four-conductor 3.5-mm audio jack and the Bassbuds are the same. Here is the link on the Apple site, the connectors are the same.
      http://www.apple.com/uk/ipod/in-ear-headphones/
      What colour are you thinking of getting? Im hoping to get the pink or red next.
      Thanks for stopping by let me know what you think of them.

    2. I got them finally after reading your review :). I went with the Pink ones. I can't wait to try them!! I wanted noise cancelling buds for a while since I'm listening to a lot of audio books now, and in the metro is just awful! These were perfect and they are also cute ;) Thanks for the advice!

    3. Aw thank you, Im so pleased you went for the pink, isnt it a gorgeous colour! I'm aiming for those next.
      Im sure they help with your audio books and make your journeys on the subway more enjoyable.
      Let me know what you think of them and thanks so much for popping by.

    4. Hey! I just got them, yes they are gorgeous in Pink! The sound is amazing with my laptop, smartphone and iPod. I cannot use the button to change songs with my iPod, but that's because it is a second generation (should've thought about that) but it works perfectly with my phone. :)

Make my day and say hi and I will take a look at your blog or site too!
Thanks XxX
