But these aren't juices and I'm not doing a beverage review. They're Juicy Electronics' Juice Box scented earphones!
I find the packaging cute and innovative.The front side of the box opens up so you can take a peek at the earphones' color. There's also a small hole labeled "Sniff Here" where you can take a whiff of the fruity scent.
I chose the Strawberry variant for review. Each box contains a pair of earphones, interchangeable earbud cushions, and a decal.
It's a pretty straightforward. Since I got the Strawberry variant, it's colored red. Cherry is pinkish purple (shown in the box photos above), apple is green, banana is yellow, and blueberry is black.
Juicy scented earphones come with this tiny single-button remote control which enables you to turn the music on or off.
You can replace the cushions for the earbuds with the extra ones provided for a perfect fit.
What I like about Juicy Electronics Juice Box earphones:
- They make great gift items since they're very cute, novel, unique, and nicely packaged!
- The scents remind me of the fruit-scented erasers I would use as a child.
- The sound is pretty decent for a simple pair of earphones.
- Even non-techie people can use them easily since all you do is plug in and listen.
Downside? More jaded music enthusiasts will probably find it lacking as you can't really hear every single strum of the guitar, beat of the drum, or tapping of the keyboards the way you can on more expensive earphones. It's kind of pricey too.
Juicy Electronics Juice Box Earphones cost P1,200 each. They're available at Beyond The Box, Digital Hub, Digital Walker, iStudio, Bratpack, Hobbes And Landes, Technoholics, iGig and Gadgets In Style.
Here's some more good news! I'll be giving away three (3) tetra packs of Juicy Electronics Juice Box earphones in my upcoming blogversary contest Animetric's Favorite Things Year 3 this February 20, 2012! What do you think? Stay tuned! :D
