Griffin Tunebuds

Tested at £8

They're an upgrade from bundled, leaky and deeply offensive iPod earphones, but they're still not great - even at this price

  • Amazingly cheap
  • solid-feeling
  • big presentation, deep bass


  • Overbearing and fat low end
  • strident treble

It's testament to how poor the iPod's bundled earphones are, that even these £8 Griffins are a significant improvement.

You get a pair of fairly solid-feeling earphones, complete with a zip-up case and three pairs of silicone tips.

Sound-wise they boast a big presentation with lots of deep bass. In fact, the low end is somewhat overbearing and fat, while treble sounds a bit sharp when pushed.

However, vocals are clear, and delivery is reasonably detailed and direct.
