Glove Review: 686 Fracture

Intended Purpose: Feel your music while blocking out the rest of the world. Good for the mountain or whatever else you need them for. The Neo ear buds have a built in microphone so you can use them for phone calls. Sound: Pretty clear sound but I'm no sound expert. They work, they play my songs as they should sound and I can take phone calls without sounding like I'm in a windstorm. The ear buds do block out other...
