Birchbox Breakdown

Frends’ handcrafted, jewelry-inspired designs give a whole new meaning to the words “ear candy.” These distinctive earbuds feature delicate metal detailing, and look more stylish than those ubiquitous white ones. Beyond their many aesthetic charms, all of Frends’ products are built to last. No, really: They’re backed by a lifetime warranty.

How it Works

These handcrafted earbuds fit snugly and securely into ears and are compatible with most iPhone, iPod, and iPad products, as well as most portable music devices. They come equipped with a soft touch fabric cord that carries high-quality (read: never twangy or fuzzy) sound from the premium 13 mm driver. The three button mic allows for hands-free iPhone calls, with volume, music, and phone control buttons for maximum ease of use. Choose from two metallic finishes: gold and rose gold.

How to Use

Pop them in your ears, hop on the subway or stationary bike, and get boppin’. When not in use, stash these earbuds in the handy zippered carrying case (also included).

Classy Jewelry for Your Ears

These are gorgeous little earbuds; I appreciate the gold accents and the fabric (as opposed to plastic) cord. They come in a beautiful case and are visually perfect.

All that said, they sound tinny. There is a noticeable sound quality difference between these and the earbuds that came with my iPhone and that difference is not positive. Even if you boost the bass these will still sound tinny. Unless you listen to a lot of teeny-bopper pop where you don't care about bass at all then these aren't going to cut it for any sort of long-term listening experience.

I was fortunate to receive them as a gift but I cannot recommend them for purchase at this price. They are wonderful to put into my purse and use on shorter commutes or if I'm walking around and just want to cut out a little ambient traffic noise (in addition to showing off my style) but they're not sufficient for any real music appreciation.

If you recognize the audio drawback and are still crushing on the fashion then I'd highly recommend them if you can afford them. But if you want something that combines class and sound quality then there have to be better options.

Pretty and functional

I love how these look, and in a quiet area the sound quality is fantastic. I used these on flights and the background noise of the plane's engines drowned out my audiobook unless I pressed the buds into my ears. The in line mic works on any device that makes use of a microphone but the controls only work reliably on Apple devices.

Love them. :)

I received this in my precious metals box and I loooove these headphones. I know previous reviewers said they were heavy but I didn't think so. They're stylish and I also really like the woven cord. I'm not sure I would pay $99 for them but they're great!

Pretty but uncomfortable

These were in my Precious Metals box, they are so pretty and trendy but the metal part weighed the earbuds down and it made my ears sore after 30 mins of wearing them. The sound is good but I just can't see myself paying almost $100 for them. I think I'll stick with ones that weigh less and cost less than $15.

Very beautiful...sound/voice even better.

Although the first thing you notice is how beautiful it is, these headphones have such high quality sound as well. My boyfriend and I do Skype calls often. The first day they arrived I used them to talk to him and asked if the sound was alright. He said I sound clearer now (I was using the iPhone 5s headphones before). Music using these headphones are so amazing as well. I absolutely love these so much!

So beautiful

Got these in the precious metals box and have received so many compliments. Very high quality sound and the cord is covered in a silk like fabric that doesn't tangle the way ear buds normally do. Also love having a pause button along with the volume ones. Strong recommend.
