Whatchamacallit 113: Bluetooth Headphones

Zagzog Bluetooth Headphones

So, I bought this particular pair of Bluetooth headphones awhile back – sometime last summer. I have no idea how much I paid for them. However, I paid 15.99€ each for two backup sets at the outbreak of the Covid-19 Crisis because I was worried that if this pair broke (and they will, one day), I would become depressed.

This is because this is the pair of headphones that I use every morning while on my constitutional. Whether the constitutional is a short one – 10,000 steps exactly – or a long one – Saturday I hit 16,000 steps before 0800 – the headphones connect to my phone and play either The Economist or a podcast to me.

Thus, I am distracted from the possible monotony of walking the same streets daily by entertainment in my ears.

This was not the first pair of Bluetooth headphones that I bought – however, it was the first pair I bought that I like: the controls are easy to use, it stays around my neck if I take out the ear pieces (and I cannot lose individual ear pieces), and the battery holds a charge long enough for two morning walks – so about four hours. I also like the magnetic ends of the ear pieces that snap together when dangling around your neck, another route to reducing the probability of loss.

Amazon says these are:

Zagzog Bluetooth In Ear Sport Kopfhörer V5.0 IPX6 Stereo Magnetischer Sport Ohrhörer mit 8-10 Stunden Spielzeit, eingebautes Mikrofon für iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Huawei etc(Schwarz)

However, these are currently out of stock, so I am doubly happy that I have two emergency backup pair in storage.


During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
