Kicker Valid EB102
Our take on the Kicker Valid EB102 by Crutchfield's David Brown
Kick your tunes into high gear
Best known for high-performance car audio gear, Kicker can bring big sound to more than just your ride. Their Valid in-ear-headphones deliver Kicker's legendary deep bass in a durable earbud you can take anywhere. The aluminum housing and Kevlar-reinforced cloth cable help these earbuds stand up to the rigors of mobile use. Choose from four sizes of ear tips so the earpieces remain securely and comfortably in your ears when you're on the go. The right fit also ensures proper noise isolation, which helps block outside noise while providing enhanced clarity, from the highest highs to the deepest lows.

Drivers: The Kicker Valid EB102 earbud headphones feature 10mm drivers with Neodymium Iron Boron (Nd-Fe-B) magnets.
Earbuds: The Valid EB102s come with silicone tips in three sizes (large, medium, and small) for every comfort level. The silicone create an optimal seal to shut out external noise, allowing pure sound to enter the ear canal. Also included are a pair of Comply Foam tips, made of breathable memory foam. The foam tips react to body heat, becoming soft to reduce irritation and fatigue.
Cord: The headphones have a 55" straight cord with tangle-free black woven, Kevlar-reinforced cloth covering Kicker's Ultra-Gauge cable. A sliding yoke improves the fit and comfort. The cord is terminated into an angled, corrosion-resistant, nickel-plated 3.5mm stereo miniplug. The small-diameter plug can fit easily into the recessed socket found on the Apple iPhone and other digital players. The angled plug design improves reliability because it reduces stress on the cord.
