Difference between these earbuds?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I was browsing for new earbuds when I found these Panasonic Canal headphones for only $23! http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16826181067 Thats less than half the price at futureshop!

I was about to buy them when I notice these with the same name: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16826181061
However, they were $4 cheaper??? When I compared the specs, the only difference was that one had a slightly longer cord.

Are they almost the same? Which one should I get?

They both seem to use the same driver, based on the specifications, but the housing is noticeably different. For $4, I'd just take my chance with the more expensive ones.

That said, these are the absolute minimum you should buy and ignore everything else:

Slowly upgrading.

Judging by the specs they are the same! Just look different and one has a shorter cord

Id also recomend

The cord on the more expensive set is longer.

Well there's your problem! Always check online before going to Futureshop/Bestbuy/wherever us overcharged Canadians have to shop. I use Canada Computers/NCIX now instead of Tiger/Futureshop/Etc for this very reason.

Hm, well I'm not sure which ones you should get but I've heard very good things about the Yuin PK2's if you really want great sound. However, they can be very pricey.


EDIT: welp, I didn't notice the thread was 2 weeks old, sorry
Also, looks like one of them is out of stock anyway.
