KAPOW! Coloud’s Marvel Headphones

A while back, I posted a Buzz post about wanting a pair of Marvel headphones that I randomly spotted on a site called Coloud. I’m a huge comics fan, so of course, I was salivating at the mouth to have these, but I didn’t see me owning a pair in the immediate future. However, what’s that old saying, “Ask and ye shall receive”? Well, I asked—technically posted about them—and I received a pair, the exact pair that I wanted, from a friend. I knew there was a reason that I wasn’t a recluse. Having friends is AWESOME!

They have a few different models ranging from earbuds to over-the-ear headphones. My particular pair is the C22 model with the KAPOW! design. I liked the look of the others, but that pair was my favorite. I didn’t specify that they were my favorite (I only mentioned I wanted an over-the-ears pair), but I think this friend knows me well enough to know those were the ones that I specifically wanted. I liked them better because they had a universal meaning in the comics world. 

My actual pair
They’re loud. I can take them off and use them sort of like mini-speakers on full volume. When I first used them, I forgot to turn the volume down on my iPod and nearly lost my head. I’m sure some of my brain melted on this first try. They’re a little snug, but not uncomfortably so for me. They seem like the type of headphones that you can’t stretch out to fit better. They snap right back into their tight form, but we’ll see what happens after a few months of wear. They'll be a nice secondary to my in-ear buds that I purchased from Skullcandy.

Do I love them? You’re darn right I do.


This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
