Are you looking for an inexpensive set of ear-buds? Pick up the Skullcandy Ink'd 2 Earbuds with Inline Mic for just $9.99 with free shipping. These earbuds originally retailed for $24.99 so you save $15.
This is the second edition of the Skullcandy Ink'd ear phones that make a stylish and affordable pair of buds to just throw in your pocket or in your backpack. I price compared with other companies, as they are a popular sale item. Here is what you will pay at other retailers:
- $14.99 @ Future Shop Canada
- $14.99 @ The Source Canada
- $19.99 @ Sport Chek Canada
This deal is better at Microsoft for two reasons. First, the ear buds are $5 cheaper, which saves you an extra 33%. In addition, Microsoft is the only one out of all these stores that offers free shipping with no minimum so you do not need to buy anything else.
The little earbuds have 11 mm drivers for huge sound in a small frame. They come with two extra sets of gel tips for a comfortable fit. An inline mic lets you control your music from the cord and accept incoming calls.
Choose from black, black/red, or pink/black. Purple/black is already out of stock. Looking at all the websites, this set of earbuds is rated very well by owners. This reviewer said:
I am very impressed with these headphones, I was skeptical at first, but the sound quality is great. Excellent response. Good base. You can hear the whole frequency spectrum, which is surprising for headphones at this price. I got them on 50% sale, I wish I had ordered more.
For $10, I do not think you can go wrong with these. Now, if you need something a bit more over the ear, I recommend purchasing the Coloud Boom Nokia Headphones for just $14.99, originally $35.99. You can get them in red, yellow, black, or cyan right now. They are a good basic set of headphones and I like that they do not feature any heavy amount of branding on them. Sure, I like my brands but I do not like to be a walking billboard.
Unfortunately, these will not be delivered in time for Christmas but they still are a good deal and very inexpensive for anyone needing a new headset.
