Buy These I7S Wireless Earphones For Only $19

For those people who enjoy music on the go there is reason to rejoice even as one phone maker after another is killing the headphone jack- you can still make use of wireless headphones. You can get a remarkable pair of wireless earbuds from Cafago for only $19.26 (Ecocash $26 see below for details) including free shipping to Zimbabwe.

The Evil Phone Maker’s Club

This guy has been on a killing spree, murdering all headphone jacks but not to worry

These days it seems most phone makers are in the evil “Lets-get-rid-of-the-headphone-jack-club.” As they swap the micro-USB port and replace it the Type-C port they are somehow forgetting to put back the standard the universal 3.5mm audio jack.

To somehow lessen the blow most phone manufacturers have been freely offering Type-C to 3.5mm adapters in phone packages. Despite the fact that these are awkward there is the problem that you cannot listen to music and charge your phone at the same time. I am serious there does not seem to be a working adaptor that allows you to charge and listen to music on Android phones at the moment!

I7S Wireless Bluetooth Earphones

Available in both black and white these AirPod look-alikes make little effort to disguise the roots of their inspiration. Unlike their Curpetino cousins which sell for an eye-watering $150 (you can buy a cow with that amount), these ones are quite affordable.

They manage to do these without sacrificing on features. For your $19 you get:

  • Two immaculate earphones one for each ear, these come with remote control function which most music players support so you can skip, pause an play tracks without having to pull your phone
  • 30mW power output
  • Noise reduction
  • Incredible bass
  • Long battery life
  • Standard 10m support
  • The earbuds tell you who is calling
  • High-class chips

These earphones are perfect for those who enjoy music, listen to podcast( do people still do this) and those nasty people who take calls while driving.

Buying from Cafago is pretty easy. All you need is to visit their website by clicking on this link, click on add to cart, login using Facebook, enter your address during the checkout process and Pay for the order using PayPal or directly using a MasterCard/Visa.

Once you have made payment you can expect the order to be shipped within 24-48 hours. You should expect to receive the headphones in around 30 days after the order has been shipped to you. Expect to pay duty of around $8 plus the ZimPost handling fee of $10. Both amounts can be paid using Ecocash/ZimSwitch.
