i have been wanting the rivet iPhone headphones for ever, i got them for v day... i popped them open and they are not what i thought that they would be... it says that you can use them either way lanyard or regular but you try to use them regular and they look goofy the mic is way at the bottom and im not really into the lanyard look, ill keep them because they are a gift but other then that i was surprised with them and the fact that they CAN'T be used either way you have to use them in lanyard otherwise they look weird...


anyone else have issuses with the rivet headphones?

I have a set of Rivets and like the lanyard method, as it prevents any kind of stress on the earbud cords and as you said, puts the mic at a reasonable level. I tend to turn my head a lot and any other set of earbuds want to work themselves loose or the cables get taut when I overdo it. The sound is good (not great) and the cords are fabric covered, not plastic or vinyl... a good buy, at least.

I won't be home all weekend but I'll post pics on Monday I wish that ( and I know that this has been beaten to death) that I could copy paste so I can just post from iPhone ... Who knows if I get bored I'll just write the photo bucket link on paper then just type it on here ... Otherwise Monday night or jp might post some pics ...
