3EIGHTY5 Audio Headphones

3Eighty5 - if you multiply that, 3 times eighty5, you get 255. But we're not selling 255 different pairs of headphones here. Why not? Because we're not about quantity. We're about quality. (But quantity too.)

Do all of the earbuds have a mic that would work with an iPhone 5?

Or do only the Filagree High-Fashion Ear buds have a mic?

It looks like all of the earbuds and 2 pairs of headphones include an in-line mic. You can look in the features and specs for MIC info.

What does it mean that they are "Double Drive Dual-Driver Earphones"? What are "Trio Premium Tunable Earphones"?

What are the biggest differences between the two?

Anyone have any idea on the quality of these? After some intensive googling, I've come up with nothing.

Well. NOBODY knows anything about this particular brand it seems.

But as far as my understanding of earbuds in general allows me to explain, it breaks down like this.

in ear monitors (earbuds or IEMs) need a "driver" to create sound. Think of these as little speakers. Now, some of the higher end IEMs have multiple drivers; each handling a different range of audio frequencies, or serving to widen the soundstage (exactly what it sounds like). Thus, these earbuds promise a sound created by two drivers instead of one. At this price, dual drivers is rare. I can't comment on how good of a quality they are, but there are two of them.

The tunable ones, on the other hand, have a feature that lets you swap out a part of the earbud in order to change the sound it produces. It manages this by changing the space inside of the earbud, thus changing how sound waves reverberate inside.

Just my two cents; I might be wrong, but I hope this helps!!

All are available on Amazon. http://goo.gl/UODTx2

Minimal reviews but mostly highly rated. About 30% cheaper here than Amazon.

Just thought i'd share some info in case these come up again. I got the dual-driver headphones, and they sounded great... for a week.

A week later the wire was pulled slightly. As a result, the mic pulled apart, and the soldering was weak enough that one of the wires detached. Now the only functional part of the headphones is the right ear bud.. Pretty useless.

They weren't even pulled hard. The mic was just not held together well at all. Pretty poor construction if you ask me.
