There are five different collections of iPopperz to choose from – Colorz, Buddyz, Jewelz, Sportz, and Graffiti. The specs are the same throughout all the collections; only the appearance is different. My review sample is a US Flag themed ear bud from the Sportz collection.
The packaging is bright, colorful and gives the buyer a good view of the product. On the back are features and specs. Current online pricing for this headset is a reasonable $20 US.
No instructions or other documentation is included but then again, this is a pair of ear buds and usage is self-explanatory. To ensure a comfortable fit, three sizes of soft tips are included that go over each ear bud. No other accessories are in the package.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
First impressions of the headset are good. The cord is a nice white color and the US Flag design on the outside of each ear bud is brightly colored with a quality finish. The best way I can describe the overall appearance is that it’s definitely eye-catching, but the design doesn’t pop so much that it looks gaudy.
A slider piece that is also decorated with the US Flag is found at the “Y” section of the cable. I initially thought this would be used to adjust the length of the Y area, but it’s not. It appears to be for show only and not a functional part of the headset.
