Let’s be honest: we students will spend $11.99 per month for our Spotify subscription, but we won’t fork out more than $10 for the earphones we’ll use to listen to music. Buying new earphones (or even emergency earphones) on the fly can lead to some poor spending decisions.
The JuiceBANK in-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic from the Reject Shop is one of those poor spending decisions. I’m begging you, don’t buy them.

“Deeper, richer bass tones”
These are earbuds that suck the soul out of your music, then squish the corpse between two buds of overgrown bass. I’m not even sure if what you’ll hear is bass. The first song I tested these flimsy things on was Blondie’s One Way Or Another—the packing boasts deep and rich bass tones, but what it does not tell you is that you won’t be hearing anything else. The rest of the sound doesn’t make it through to your earbuds.
I regret spending my measly $5 on these earbuds the second I opened their cardboard packet. Upon immediate inspection, any buyer will notice that the earbuds lack one of the fundamental details earphones typically require: left ear/right ear indicators. They’re not on them. Not even an attempt to put some stickers on left or right earbuds. The sound quality is so bad on these suckers, they might as well be mono anyway.
The Reject Shop living up to it’s name.
To my knowledge, JuiceBANK is not a company. They are just the Reject Shop selling electronic goods. And if they are a company separate from the Reject Shop, then they’ve gone into hiding because of the shame of producing such a poor quality audio product.
