Ekotek, a Filipino owned company, recently released a great affordable audiophile-quality earphones. The Ekobuds Lifetones are here and here is my review of it!
Ekobuds Lifetones come in 4 different colors, white, black, pink, and green. I super loved the green one.
I love how pretty the colors in Ekobuds are. Beautiful shades. I also am impressed by the overall design. Not only does it look stunning, it’s also an ergonomic little thing. The rounded shapes of the earphones serves not only aesthetically, also very comfortable in your ears for longer periods of time.
The outer material is made up of rubber and I’m kind of afraid that it’ll be easily dirtied. But the matte finish and amazing shade makes it worth it.
In terms of sound, the Ekobuds Lifetones are a great budget earphones. The sound is clear, the bass, not too overwhelming. Not only does it deliver quality sound, it’s very noise proof, too. I wore this in a crowded, noisy, cafe with music playing over the human noise, and it still managed to only let me hear MY acoustic jams. Bad news though, my companions tried talking to me and I didn’t hear them at all. Oops! Normally, only my headphones have noise cancelling technology. I’m glad that these provide that beautiful feature as well.
I let a friend try this, but since she needed bigger earcaps, it didn’t fit her well nor was it very noise cancelling for her.
These earphones also have a mic so you can use it for calls on your mobile. The button on the mic is pretty standard as it can answer and end calls, with a toggle for mute and sound. BUT, it’s placed pretty far from my mouth so its difficult to use. I have to bring it up closer to my mouth so I could be heard.

Such a steal. These earphones are hardy, cute, and does well compared to higher end brands. It even comes with different sizes of earcaps for a perfect fit. Me likey because I think I have smaller ears than normal and big earcaps hurt mine.
