My current earphones are on the verge of death, so last week I took the plunge and ordered a pair of these beauties from Amazon. The price has shot up on them since last week, since at the time I ordered them they were just 70 p including postage. Now, I know what you're thinking. "Tim", you're thinking, "How can they possibly be any good at all when the sellers were obviously so desperate to shift them they were selling them at a price at which they can't conceivably have been making a profit, even if they didn't pay for them?" and frankly, you'd be right. They're terrible. But they're terrible in quite a good way; they turned my iPod into a karaoke machine. Yes, somehow while I was listening to music on the way to work this morning they managed to filter the lead vocals out of every song I listened to. How great is that?
What's the best rubbish thing you've ever bought?
