Earbuds go chic, not geek thanks to ChicBuds at CES

There were plenty of earbuds for the audiophile at CES but I only saw one that specifically went after the female listener and incorporated something brand new. The ladies at ChicBuds know their clientele, having delivered feminine audio gear for several years now. Their latest earbuds have a rubber flat cord, similar to the much more expensive Beats earbuds but these cords are narrower so they are less bulky and ChicBuds has figured out how to print a pattern directly on that rubberized cord! As you might imagine, the patterns are feminine, but I found a blue paisley version that worked for me.




The earbuds do NOT incorporate a microphone but they come with small, medium and large tips to accommodate just about anyone.
