I’ve been working from home for almost 6 years, and I’ve come to rely on in-ear ear buds to help cancel out background noise (i.e. homeschooled kids, dogs, etc.) when I am able to and I need to concentrate.
I’ve gone through many sets of earbuds over the years, with varying degrees of success. The primary problem is failure after three months or so. My earbuds are used constantly; they are always either in my ears or in my pocket, day and night (I usually fall asleep listening to podcasts).
I was almost to the point of shelling out $80 for Apple earbuds just because I knew they had a 1-year warranty. They would at least last a year. I learned about Tweaked Audio while listening to The Morning Stream and found out they had a lifetime warranty so I thought I would try them out.
The sound quality is great. I’m not an audiophile, but they do a great job of rendering the highs and the base, and they do great at blocking out background noise (which is what I really need). The build quality is also phenomenal.
The really great thing though is the way Tweaked Audio stands behind their product. The simple fact is that earbuds, no matter the manufacturer, have tiny little wires that can fail. My Tweaked Audio buds have failed multiple times, but each time they dutifully send me a new pair. It was getting to the point where I was starting to feel a little guilty, but they are more embarrassed that their product caused any problem at all. In fact, this last time I got them replaced, I told them I was expecting to pay at some point. I mentioned my plans to buy my son a pair of Tweaked earbuds and they asked what kind he wanted, sending a pair for him along with my replacements, free of charge.
If you are looking for earbuds to replace your iPhone buds or whatever, you really can’t do better than Tweaked Audio
