Design > Compatibility
There is only one piece of gadgetry that I love more than my iPhone: the headphones that came with my iPhone. As they say, “you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone.”
I had misplaced them for what seems like months, and things just haven’t been the same. (Turns out that someone else in the house had been using them with their non-iPhone iPod).
What did I miss the most? Two things:
- Hands-free phone calls in the car or while working.
- Advancing to the next track on the iPod by double clicking the mic apparatus.
Seems inane, I know. But look a little deeper; the two things that make the iPhone what it is are just that much better with the headphones that cater specifically to those activities.
There are many headphones that claim to be iPhone compatible. I own a pair that sound incredible. The bottom line, though? I’m ecstatic to be reunited with the ones that were designed for the iPhone.
