Are you happy with the headphones you use on a daily basis? As you are probably aware, Best Buy sells pretty much every style and brand of headphone available. One of those is the focus of this contest: Happy Plugs. Best Buy is giving away six sets of these headphones in this contest. But first you must ask yourself: what does a headphone have to do to make you happy?

Situations in which Happy Plugs might make you happy

Consider my number one use case for wearing headpones: I commute daily. Trains and buses take me to work, then home. They are noisy; that makes me unhappy. My earbuds block out a lot of that noise and replace it with music or audio from a Netflix show—which makes me happy. I arrive at work in the morning or home in the evening more relaxed than I would without headphones.

There are many situations that other people might cite as similar examples. Perhaps you are one of the millions of people who like to wear headphones while cleaning. Some people like house cleaning itself. (Zak spoke of this in his recent contest article for the Dyson V11 vacuum we are giving away on the blog.) Others prefer to use that time to listen to a podcast or music on headphones: that’s what makes them happy while they clean.

I sent a set of these to reviewer Darren Blakeborough and he loved how these looked and felt. I guess you could say Happy Plugs made him happy. Here is his video review of these headphones:
