It is easy to see that music is a major part of people’s lives these days. Portable music is a multi-billion dollar industry. Between mp3 players and mp3 integrated devices, you pretty much end up with a mp3 player sooner or later. One such popular device is the iPhone from apple. This device comes with a generic pair of earbuds but if you are spending upward of $600 for an iPhone why use cheap earbuds? Most people's answer to this is that most earbuds don’t double as headsets. This is where the Zbudds from Zagg come in. Seamlessly integrating quality earbuds and headset features all in one streamlined package. Let’s get a closer look at these:

The packaging for the Zagg Zbuds reminds me of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, with the headset presented in profile. As I have mentioned many times in other reviews the product packaging that shows the product through a windows gets higher marks than other packaging. "What you see is what you get" - is important when I am shopping, I hate being surprised when I get home after buying something only to realize it is not exactly as pictured on the box. The back of the packaging has user reviews and all of the information you would need for truly understanding what this products is for and how it is used.
Along with the Zbuds you get a carrying pouch and a wide range of silicone and foam in ear flanges. Included are 2 sizes of foam buds, 3 white silicone flanges(small medium, and large), and one triple flanged black silicone set.
The buds themselves are well built; the metal casing instills confidence in the quality of the product. The chord shielding seems rugged, the only down side I see is the potential for fraying, right out of the packaging there was fraying on the shielding pictured below. The inline control is another awesome feature the one click to answer and hang up a call, and two clicks to skip a song are an awesome feature for your iPhone.
Two other great features the Zagg Zbuds offer is inline volume control and a noose for anchoring your earphones to your device of choice. The second option is important in my opinion because more then once I have turned wrong and my mp3 player flew out of my pocket and the headphone port wasn’t strong enough to keep a mp3 player or iPhone from taking flight. You will still yank your device out with a wrong move but it won’t plummet to the ground as easily.
