The Woodees 24k Blues earbuds look nice and sound even better. These headphones that combine wood and gold produce a silvery tone.
Woodees, as if the name didn't give it away, have a wooden housing. The wooden housing not only looks nice, but is meant to improve the sound quality. Since wood tends to have a low resonance, the housing ends up enhancing the bass of the earbuds and providing a richer sound. Other than the wooden housing, I would say the sound is fairly straight forward for the price range. The Woodees 24K Blues have a single 10 mm driver which provides an overall good sound. It provides reasonably clear sound through the entire range of frequencies, with the usual amount of clarity issues when a large number of different instruments/frequencies are playing simultaneously.
The cord of the Woodees Blues is a very flexible braided cable. It is surprising how much of a difference the cord can make. Since the cord is soft and braided, it does not suffer from kinks and rarely becomes tangled. This aspect of the Woodees made me particularly happy since I hate undoing tangles. Built into the cord of the Woodees Blues is a set of controls and a microphone. The microphone is so-so, but who buys earbuds for the microphone quality? The controls are faily simple, but useful. There are two buttons to control volume and a third button that can be used to answer calls or control music. Based on how many times you push it, the third button will play/pause, skip forward, or go back. The inline controls work well except for some issues when the headphones are in my pocket. The controls often get squished between my leg and my mp3 player, causing my music to play. Generally this isn't a big deal, but if you don't catch it, your battery can be drained a bit more quickly.
Along with the ear-buds themselves, the Woodees Blues comes with a leather carrying case, a shirt clip, and a variety of tips. The tips are basic silicone and come in extra small, small, medium, and large. The Woodees unfortunately have a large in-ear diameter, so using tips from other headphones may not be an option. They are so large that if I don't use the smallest tips, they quickly begin to hurt. The case is a nice leather bag that can be closed with a pullstring. The bag is large enough that the earbuds easily fit into it without being so large that it doesn't fit comfortably in your pockets.
I highly recommend the Woodees Blues because they have a nice aesthetic and good quality for a good price.
