I needed new earbuds for my iPhone/iPod, and so, I thought I'd be smart and go to the Dollar Tree. They have some that attach over your ears.
First, they were annoying because the over the year part didn't fit.
Second, I used them for a week and suddenly they stopped working. One ear went out and then the other. They'd work when I jiggled the cords at first, but then they just died.
I know they were only $1, but it is so worth going elsewhere and buying nicer ones!
So, I would say never ever buy cheap earbuds from dollar tree. Or if you really want to waste your $1 then go ahead give that to someone else.

I'd say they aren't inherently bad for a dollar but the quality control is non-existent. If you bought another pair you might get one that works for longer. It's still probably better to shell out $20 or so for a decent pair.

I agree the dollar store buds are crap. Spend some money and get a descent set. The cable however is very useful for all sorts of projects in which small cables are just what the doctor ordered, and, bonus a molded plug on the end.

Yes, of course. I have made my mind that I will never buy any earbuds from dollar store. Only food and beverages are good to buy.
