Jamboo Headphones Review #StandOutJamOut
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
In keeping with my “eat healthy and get fit” resolution this year, I’ve been doing good keeping up with going to the gym regularly. What I like about the gym I joined is that every machine has a audio box that you can connect to to listen to the radio or one of the many TVs playing. I like to catch up on the news or zone out to a sitcom when I’m on the treadmill or bike, so I always bring a pair of headphones with me each time I go. I’ve been using my plain old iPhone headphones since those were the only pair I’ve owned. But now I have a fun and stylish pair to take with me, courtesy of Jamboo Headphones.
I received a pair of Jamboo headphones in Shine for review. These headphones are manufactured with bamboo on the earpieces, middle connector, and headphone jack. The cord is woven with cotton thread and styled around a specific nature inspired theme, in this case the theme being the the sun. Jamboo uses a special method of weaving the cord that keeps the headphones tangle free – this is my favorite feature, my iPhone headphones were always getting tangled! I really like the color of this particular design, it’s so bright and cheerful. Another great feature is the “leash” that comes with the headphones – keeping them contained and making them easy to attach to your gym bag or purse. I found these headphones to be comfortable and really quite stylish, with great sound quality. All of the current Jamboo headphones sell for $29.99 on the Jamboo site, and every one comes with its own leash.
Jamboo Headphones began with the dream of longtime childhood friends Scooter Vaughan and Austin Glenn who were able to raise over $20,000 through Kickstarter to make their dream a reality. They used the money they raised to bring Jamboo Headphones to fruition and give customers a unique, style-driven choice in the cluttered headphone market. As a company they strive to produce a fashionable, long lasting, and inexpensive headphone that will grab people’s attention while giving off a natural vibe to fit your personality.
