What is the soundtrack of your life?

I normally save my question and my call to action and reserve it for the end of my post, but this time it just seemed so fitting for it to go first! I'll bet there is a song that represents major moments of your life, your first dance, prom, wedding and more. 

or maybe you are like me and there is always a running soundtrack in your head.

Have you ever wished you could share that soundtrack in real time? Now, with a simple flip you can! 

How Flips Works:

Just thought I'd share this video produced by Flips so you can see how easy it is to go from 'solo' listening, to 'social' sharing of your music (I'll try to do a Vine or quick video of my own when I get more caught up!):

It's literally that easy!

You can use them like regular headphones for solo listening, or you can charge them (they have a Lithium Ion Battery that is USB recharge-able) and then flip them and use them as you would any portable speaker!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Portable Speakers and Headphones all-in-one! They are lightweight, portable and convenient to use!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Memory Foam Padded Earpiece that is comfortable and if you wear glasses or earrings they don't press them into your head!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - They are compatible with any 3.5 millimeter audio jack which is the standard size on most portable devices including tablets, smart phones, iPods etc.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Comes with Protective Carrying Case

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - If you buy them directly from FlipsAudio, you get free shipping if you buy multiple units in the same order! (So if you have a pal that was looking into these, maybe you can guys can put the order in together and save on the shipping!)


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Of course Lithium Ion has it's Pros as well as Cons, if it's not fully charged you aren't going to get a lot of time when you are in Share mode, on a full charge it will give you 3 hours.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I did notice that it has a bit higher treble than most people are probably used to with standard headphones (probably because it's a Speaker as well as headphones, so you may have to adjust your device's treble settings to get a more 'even' sound.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - For now, the color choices are a bit narrow, All White with Red Accents (which is the color I selected) or All Black with Lime Accents (my fellow Alienware Computer Enthusiasts are going to love that color scheme! But since most of my headphones and earbuds are actually Black like the typical New Yorker I am, I went with white this time around.)

My Take:

Butterflies you all know that I went into headphones kicking and screaming because I have always preferred earbuds. I am an eyeglass wearer and I also wear pierced earrings which makes headphones a pain for me, I can tell you after extended hours of use with these they do NOT hurt my ears or push my eyeglasses or sunglasses or earrings into the side of my head. No Marks, means happy butterfly! I am very happy with the sound as a speaker and as headphones as well. I do have a 'good ear' when it comes to audio so it was hard at first getting used the higher treble capture with these, but I've adjusted my settings and once I did that I found that these really do deliver a quality audio experience across various Musical Genres. I have a very eclectic collection of music (but then again what 'DJ' doesn't?), and despite their bigger profile in my handbag, I have found myself reaching for them all the time (BTW, I love the protective case that comes with these!). They are delivering big price sound that allows you to easily share the beat at a price that won't break the bank. One of the highest ratings I can give with me having a background in music and studios and being a blogger is this 'Would you re-buy them if something went wrong?' and the answer is definitely a re-sounding yes! I of course hope they last a long time (and a long time for me is relative and is WAY different than the average mainstream user) but if I lost them I would re-buy them!

My apologies dear butterflies I was not able to arrange for a giveaway with these this time around, but please visit FlipsAudio on their Social Channels and let them know you saw them reviewed here and would love a giveaway, I'm sure your enthusiasm would help sway 'The-Powers-That-Be' over at FlipsAudio! J
