One of the most important accessories that I ended up purchasing for my Kindle Fire turned out to be the headphones to listen to the music and movies that I constantly stream whenever I am using my tablet.

So, the first thing I did when I got home Saturday night was to log on to Amazon.com and find another pair!
While there are lots of options, and there are many much less expensive than these, I decided upon the JBuds J5 Earbud-style Metal Headphones for iPod, iPad, Tablet, Kindle (Black Pearl), because the description indicated that these headphones offered exactly what I was looking for, at a price that was reasonable.
With my Amazon Prime plan, the headphones arrived yesterday, so I could go back to enjoying my nightly ritual of streaming an episode of Lost from Amazon, without driving other people crazy while I watched the show on my Kindle Fire.
Out of the box, the JBuds plugged right into my Kindle Fire, and I put them on…talk about a soft, comfortable fit in my ears! I usually don’t like ear buds because they “bug” me…but these feel as soft as cotton in my ears. More importantly, the sound quality is not nearly as tinny as some earbuds that I have tried. The J5′s titanium micro drivers actually deliver an incredibly smooth and consistent response across the entire frequency curve, from deep, rich bass to full, luscious mids and crisp, vibrant highs…which gives me great sound quality when I watch my show, and when I stream music!
And, since I am incredibly hard on little electronic items like this, I appreciate that the 45° angle jack offers me the strength of pure metal with the durability of firm flexing rubber, and that the lightweight cable is reinforced with Kevlar for optimum flexibility and strength.
Even better, these headphones are also compatible with other electronics that you might have in your home, such as:
- Tablets: Kindle Fire, iPad, Motorola Zoom, HP Touchpad, Asus EEE Pad, Acer Iconia, Toshiba Thrive, Coby Kyros, Viewsonic, Sony, Blackberry Playbook, Vizio, Archos, Android, Dell, T-Mobile, and other tablets*.
