Recently, I received an e-mail (see below) from an individual who seemed interested in purchasing the worst earbuds possible for the largest amount of money. She seemed not to be interested in buying from an individual (I tried that already) but rather from a retail vendor or established manufacturer. I suspect her preference has to do with the look of the receipt (purple ink, jagged pattern at top and bottom, etc.), which she wants to have either laminated or mounted on a tiny swiveling tripod -- I'm not sure which.

If anyone could suggest which earbuds might be worst and most overpriced, in that order, I'd be happy to forward your suggestions to the prospective buyer. Thanks in advance.

Subject: Where can eye find some I-watering acrid earbudbud phones?

Hello everyone. Nice to see you standing together like this standing together like this standing. And now a question that is also an important question for you question and answer me answer me now now now now now and answer answer now.

Many say I'd be an exceptionally handsome manmanman eater man eater man man if it weren't for the deep perforation in my forehead that may leak fluid sporadically. And now for a question sporadically.

I'm interested in buying the worst conceivavavable earbuds for the largest amount of money amount, OK? The only economic consideration is that that the price must be impressively high. For the price must be a high price high money and in bags under the eye-swatter water water. Can anyone help me on this one. Because mind you there is something good on my mind about spending money on one pair of headphones earbud phones that are really really not good and nothing else not even a new bed pillow or a chocolate potato chip cookie chip bar or even a little round band-aid (for fore head) to muffle the Double Jeopardy Jeopardy Theme which is always playing would be bet better than the headphones I will soon buy if you people around here will tell me which one it is?

Thank you and hello, I am an one call me Adelaide Crapsey.

Tell your friend they will be MOST displeased by the Sony EX-70LP's. Simply the worst price/performance ratio I have ever heard.

no, the worst price / performance is the B&O earbud.

You guys have absolutely no ambition. I will render a diamond-encrust, solid-gold MDR-E805 for your friend at the piffling cost of $5m - and I can put it through Harrods' cash till...

What's with the writing style of this person?
Other than that I remember some Shure canal phones getting the prize for the worst price/sound ratio.

I don't know if one can buy Rio earbuds without the player. But then paying $150 for an SP250 just for the earbuds could be the most outrageous price. The Rio's are significantly bad.

a1leyez0nm3 - I don't understand your reasoning, it's weird...
The EX70's are demonstrably worse than the V700. Just wondering...

hazelnut popcorn jellybeans? and the lolipop lightning fast cardas wirey dodad plugin plugs with bosifying sound-producing un-producing sound-un-sounding un-sounders in the attached therein? to be spectacularly despisable and delicious. is it twistingly and somehow odly a twisting twisted sales pitch in the retail-after post-sales after-market used phone game for the unmarvelous and defunct nubbly nubs with the painted on er6 and the research and such for purposes of sales and selling? well? is it? the people desire such information?

tweet?

So you mean with mods, it can be made to sound as bad as a V700, up from way worse?

So what you have against the V700 is the cost/audio performance and the fact that it's not that portable?

OK, I was unaware of the B&O earbuds. I will revise my statement and say that the EX-70's are the worst price/performance earbuds I have ever heard.

P.S. Joe Bloggs is hanging on to a fantasy, much like a guy who won't throw out his old girlfriends stuff years after she dumped him. Sad really...
