I rarely buy anything non essential these days but I needed a treat. I really really needed a treat, so, tired of forever wrestling with ear buds that fall out of my ears whenever I move, I bought some proper white headphones. And yes, the colour was a bigger factor in my choice than sound quality. I can't afford quality. If I have to buy cheap then it must at least make me happy to look at them. And to be honest, they sound fine to me, definitely not amazing, but perfectly good for blocking out the sound of vans sitting outside with their engines running.
