Design

 

Pro Mic has one of a unique in-canal earphone designs we’ve seen. The earpieces themselves are relatively uninteresting, featuring a black and metallic color scheme, a clothbound cable, and a chin-level inline remote control and mic. Just below the single-button remote, which controls calls and playback, the cable turns into a useful black zipper. The zipper is quite useful, since zipping it higher allows the earphones to maintain a more secure fit. Below the cable’s zipper section, another clothbound section terminates in a 3.5mm connection. I like the look, but it won’t be for everyone.

Performance

 

On tracks with substantial sub-bass content, like The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the Pro Mic delivers a powerful low-frequency response. The drivers don’t distort even at the top, unwise listening levels, which is impressive for earphones this inexpensive. There’s a healthy level of high-mids and highs as well, so things don’t sound too muddy.

Specifications

 

Connecting to your device through a 3-ring 3.5mm jack, these earphones offer a handy zipper to keep your cable untangled, an in-line control button which sets out to pause, play, skip, answer and hang up calls and rubber earbuds for comfort and passive noise cancellation.

1.6 ounces in weight and providing you with what they claim as a ZBX high-performance drivers alongside a noise-cancelling microphone, there is unfortunately not any particular driver or microphone statistics readily available for viewing.

Conclusion

The Zipbuds Pro Mic is a unique, convincing set of earphones with a cable that morphs into a zipper.They sound decent, and they truly are tangle-free. But the zipper design creates other issues, including excess noise from the cord rubbing against your clothing. Some people won’t mind this as much as others, and they’re fine for stationary use.
