Split into two different product lines, Duobuds BFF and Mates earbuds ($40 each) are simple color variations on the same product. The headphones are available in a total of six different colors, seemingly marketed towards girls and boys, respectively. With either, you get glow in in the dark rubber eartips at the end of the plastic buds, with a "lego-esque" locking mechanism on the backend connecting them, and allowing them to be worn around the neck. At the other side of the cloth-covered cable is the headphone plug, which uses what the company calls an Easy Share connector. The port allows you to plug in an extra pair of headphones, eliminating the need for a separate splitter.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
