Than the Maxell UR is a safe bet.

What gets my gripe with media is you have no guarentee when it will inevitably "let go" - and the same with optical media, if they all do the same job, then why bother with unneccisary cosmetics and vouch for expensive media? They all do these same thing, but I digress.

Don't be put off if you hear reviewers suggesting that this is Maxell's lowest grade of cassette - Admittedly it is but the accuracy of sound reproduction is quite good infact for a cassette, and I use them for CD dubbing, and recording things off the radio and they do a fine job.

The fidelity isin't fantastic, but then again in the age of digital and of infinate data storage suggesting that is a bit outdated. But it is a bog-standard ferric tape, and just works at a cheap price, infact apart from a handful of manufacturers, it seems like Maxell are the only manufacturers producing cassettes now.

To compare them to Chrome cassettes are a bit like comparing domestic VHS tapes to SVHS tapes, one is slightly better than the other. Where crisper sound comes with ferric tapes, it is reflected in the price, but I could rival it against more expensive manufacturers as It's a bog standard ferric cassette, and although cassettes can be bought ten a penny from local charity shops, Maxell have been in this game for over 30 years, and have built up a nice reputation for doing so. They are usually one of the better brands for performance, and cost matching the more expensive rivals like Sony and TDK.

Infact, I still have some Maxells from 1990 and they still sound as sharp as when they were first played, despite having being dropped, abused, tape stretched by holding the pause button slightly... Etc. etc. They still sound phenominal.

They are selling these as 2 packs for just £1 in a well known high street chain, although you used to get 3 packs for the same price. Even so, they are still great value. I did some recording for the first time in years with some of these and after playing back, I (and other people) could hardly tell that it was a recording at all even though I recorded off old records.
Recording from higher quality sources such CD may show a bigger difference but these are amazing value and highly reccomended. Happily the cassette format is not dead yet.

A bargain pack of what is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain
from high street outlets and therefore much welcomed by those of us who
still enjoy using equipment requiring cassettes.Recommended.

I bought these to distribute a DIY cassette release and I will not be using them again.

Not even two weeks after making copies on these tapes, I played some back to check that they were ok before sending them off to people who wanted it and found that on most, if not all copies any frequencies above about 1 kHz had all but disappeared and the recordings sounded muffled. Some copies had even succumbed to the dreaded phasing effect where the high frequencies kept coming in and then dropping back out.

So yeah, these may seem cheap, but you will be disappointed in the long run. If you really need to use cassettes, spend your money on some decent ones from Tapeline. Or, if you happen to have any old TDK cassettes with stuff you don't care about on them, you will most likely get much better results, even if they've been well used!

Cassette tape recording may be old hat but its still the simplest and quickest way to record a radio programme.
Have use Maxwell tapes for many years and whilst they do wear out eventually that's the only thing that could be said to go wrong.
Buy it, they are no better or worse than any other make and for the price you cannot go wrong.

Have to add upon on reflection that there is a problem with these tapes after a couple of months usage.
The tape continuously comes off the corner reels which require it to be threaded back on. This is not limited to one cassette but all of them. I can only conclude that these cassettes are of a result of a faulty manufacturing batch as this not reflective of past experience with Maxell.

Excellent sound quality when played either in the car (unit includes cd and tape)
Taping from old vinyl and cd's enables plenty of musical choice.

These tapes are extremely poor quality. The sound quality is very poor and the tapes will not rewind. Don't waste your money

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers...these are even better than TDK! Lovely sound, very low his level with the toppy sound of CDs but with the Nice Analogue warmth added. Like the clear shells too :-). I would actually say these are better than we could get back in the 1990's! Keep up the good work maxell and dont change the formula :-)
