Remember that nickel in the ear trick creepy uncle Larry used to do to you? It was like your ears were raining change and you thought maybe if you shook your head more would fall out. Well, these fine earbuds do none of the above, but they do look like a nice silver coin in your ear and fit nice and snug. Plus, they rain sweet acoustic sounds, which is better than the sound of rattling change, right?
