Flips Headphones – From Solo To Social In A Flip
The purpose of the Flips Audio Headphones is to provide you with high definition audio headphones combined with powerful speakers by simply flipping the ear cups around.
The Flips Headphones are the first headphones to combine HD headphones together with amplified speakers. I love taking these bad-boys with me everywhere I go. I seriously can’t imagine listening to music without them anymore and still have no clue as to why I’ve been using cheap no-name brand headphones up until now.
The first of their kind, these headphone/speaker hybrids literally take you from “Solo to Social” with a flip. In headphone mode they have a nice, high-definition sound that hits the full range of highs and lows. With a 180° flip of the ear cups you’re now in speaker mode, giving you a wider and more powerful amplified sound. A nice safety feature built into these headphones to protect your ears, is the “Safety Flip”, which ensures that the amplified speaker mode will only engage when pointed out and away from your ears.
They’re lightweight but sturdy, they used memory foam so they’re really comfortable, and the ear cups are vented so my ears don’t get too hot. I have to tell you I get plenty of use out of both the headphone and speaker modes. Whenever I’m at the public gym working out around people I don’t know very well, I use the Flips in headphones mode. But when I’m working out with my friends at the college gym, I always flip these around and can blast music that me and my friends can enjoy while we workout.
One of the things about the Flips Audio headphones is the amount of attention I get from wearing them wherever I go. It’s a really cool electronic to have that most people haven’t seen before. I get a bunch of questions and sometimes people randomly ask me to play their favorite songs. It’s great for starting conversations and meeting new people who enjoy listening to the same style of music that I like.
Flips Headphones has the powerful rechargeable lithium ion battery, so I have plenty of power to keep me going the whole day. It’s charged via USB so I can charge it in my room or in my car. A very nice thing about the lithium ion battery is that the power doesn’t drop with the charge of the battery, the power is constant. That means if you do run the battery all the down, you get the same powerful sound all the way to the end.
None so far – will keep you posted.
The Flips Audio Headphones come with a 90-day full replacement plan from the date of your purchase.
Value for money?
Flips Headphones take listening to music to the next level. Flips Audio has their finger on the pulse of today’s social-oriented culture. We all have times when we just want to be alone and chill with our favorite tunes; and other times when we just want to be in the crowd slammin and jammin. Grab a pair of Flips and if you’re anything like me, I guarantee you’ll thank me for turning you on to them.
