After weeks to get my sound isolated earphones, which cut out surrounding noise perfectly with a bit of music, I ordered an iPod shuffle, a hotel matchbox sized MP3 player.
But to keep my address private I sent it to my old address which redirects to my PO BOX, I always do that for mail order and on the occasion a courier goes to my old address they soon work it out and I get them to send it to the PO BOX themselves.
JB HIFI didn't do that, it says order complete and no IPOD... yada yada yada, so I cut the cables on the Blackberry earphones and the $90 Sound Insulating earphones, well worth the money!
There's 5 wires! Blackberry uses a smal USB plug so I was trying to plug my SI earphones into the Blackberry. So I snip further up the cable where it splits into 2 and there's 2 wires but different colours to the 5 at the base of the cable. OK I'm going to have to hotwire the earphones and see what gives a signal. So I snip the $90 earphone cable and despite having stripped 1000 wires with my teeth with 100% record, this cable is made of weird rubber, and the wires aren't even copper or insulated, they're frayed wire in the same rubber covering, insulate by a powder coating it seems, I got one wire stripped but no luck. 2 earphones wrecked, now I have to buy a paper with good ole earplugs and hope I don't get verbally assaulted too badly.
