TP-360B Stereo Headset with Microphone Review

I got these headphones over two years ago, and I have been using them at home when I don’t want to disturb other people or when I’m watching a movie on my bed. My computer is usually plugged into external speakers, and I really don’t find the quality of the internal speakers satisfying, so whenever I’m not using the external speakers, I’ll be using these.

The quality of the sound is surprisingly good, considering the price I bought it at. The bass is sufficient and up to my standards, and I am a person who loves bass. The price was equivalent to around $20USD if I remember correctly. It is still working perfectly fine, and I have no complaints about the quality of the headphones. It has a volume control which I love.

Unfortunately, my laptop only has only a earphone connector (no mic). Because these headphones use a separate jack for the mic, I can’t use it (as you can see from the un-removed cap on the red jack). Not that I need it because my laptop has an inbuilt mic. Another thing is the headphones don’t look cool enough to use outside my home, mainly because of the aesthetics and the mic thing that sticks out. I normally just rotate it so it sticks up and out of my way, like in the picture.

In conclusion:

I’d recommend it to anyone looking for decent headphones for casual use at home. It has served me well throughout these past years. I wasn’t willing to spend a few hundred dollars on the high end headphones since I’ll only be using them at home, so I’m happy I ended up with this.

Buttons

Buttons.

This button fell of my coat the other day. I was meaning to sew it back on but never had the chance or motivation. Luckily it was from one of the pockets, so I’m not really bothered by it.

The funny thing is, from the same coat, I have a mismatched button on the left sleeve. I lost that button last winter, and I used a spare button from another jacket to replace it. That button I could not ignore, because it holds the cuff of the sleeve together, and without it, it would just not function. Fortunately unless you were looking really closely, I don’t think you would notice that the button on my left cuff is different from the one on the right. And personally, I don’t really mind having a unique coat.

So, here is my thought on buttons:

Even if they look identical, some buttons are more important than others. Look after your buttons! You don’t want to be the person who has no buttons on their shirt! Mismatched buttons are better than no buttons at all!
