This was just a random find, but it's quite interesting.

They even have a noise canceling model. Only $10 more.

But, these almost look like infomercial IEM's. After all, only $20?

 

Still interesting none the less. Take a look at the link in the OP.

The whole page (you linked to) is too random to actually read seriously. I was thinking it is cheap enough to order a pair just for the fun of it, but they don't ship internationally tongue.gif

Yes, and I earn £400 a day working from home and lost 150 kilos following this new revolutionary diet that the doctors don't want you to know about!

Yeah, it's a bit scattered, but that is the only place to find them.

 

That's what I would think someone would do -- order a pair for the fun of it. Not that I am interested in getting a pair for myself or anything, just I thought it was a bit unique in it's design -- and price for that matter.

Ah, DAK.

Most of you don't remember DAK, but it used to be a major source of mail-order electronics in the 1970s and 1980s. They even had a handful of retail stores around.

I don't know about the quality of these IEMs, but back in the day, DAK sold good stuff. I owned quite a few things and liked the company. The business model was direct sales from the factory, because back then, you bought from department or specialty stores with big markups. The Internet destroyed that model, but DAK was often the best deal going back then.

I don't know if these are any good, but seeing the site was a nice shot of nostalgia.

The other company I miss seeing around is Federated. If you've never seen the "Fred Rated" (company spokesman) commercials, there are some on YouTube. Bizarre and usually hysterical.

 I bought 3 pairs of these when DAK put them n the Web.  1 for me, 1 for the wife, and 1 for my daughter, as stocking stuffers for Christmas.  I've put my Bose earbuds on the shelf because these sound better AND they fit better.  They are out of stock until February, but I plan to buy some more as spares.

I just bought another pair since I damaged the pair that I have been using for the last 2 years.  The bass response is good, and they stay in your ear while walking or jogging.  I do not have Bose, but these are superior to earbuds that I have bought up to $60 in price (my limit) Bose is about $120 US.

 

DAK to keep costs down, makes Amateuristic web pages on their own, but don't let that dissuade you. For $20, you really can't go wrong!
