5.0 out of 5 stars Spot on, 25 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent headphones. I bought 3 or 4 different brands to cross-test them. The others ranged from awful to OK. These were, by a long way, the pick of the bunch.

I wanted a decent bass reproduction but not at the expense of the mid range. All the others suffered in that respect, but not these. These are clear and distinctive all the way through the range and all I can say is they are the best I've ever bought. I'm sure you can spend a wedge and get better quality but for day to day use they are excellent.

Absolutely shocking sound quality. By far the worst earphones I've ever used. Straight in the bin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete WAIST of time!, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Complete waist of time! (pun intended).

This provides no more support than tying a tea towel around your waist. And as for wearing it beneath clothing - what are you supposed to do with the extra 3 feet of webbing that's left over after you've stuck the velcro to itself? Might get some admiring glances if you tuck it down your trousers.

Utterly pointless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great solution, 4 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does exactly what it says it would. Sits unobtrusively on the back edge of the desk and keeps various iPhone/iPad and other charger leads handy until you need them. When finished they just slide back into the unit without sliding down the back of the desk. Great solution.

1.0 out of 5 stars Think there could be no ambiguity. Think again! Does not fit the monitor it says it does, 12 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is advertised as being compatible with my 23" Dell P2314H Monitor. It specifically states the model number, so you would have thought there could be no ambiguity. Think again!

On receiving the sound bar there are 2 issues with it:
1) it does not fit the monitor
2) it does not play sound

apart from not fulfilling it's two primary objectives, it's a brilliant piece of kit!

On trying for a refund via Amazon I am told...

'This item isn't eligible for return. For safety reasons, items that use flammable liquids or gases can't be returned'

Quite where the 'flammable liquids or gases' are is beyond me but now I am caught up trying to contact Amazon to sort out a refund for this useless piece of crap. Seriously, I have better things to do - that paint won't watch itself dry you know!

4.0 out of 5 stars a good piece of kit, 29 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works well and the sound is definitely better than anything built into the laptops I use it with (Mac & PC). Plug & play simplicity (just make sure you follow the instructions to change audio settings).

One star off because, whilst they have a handy little carrying case for the Mic, it does not accommodate the USB cable that comes with it, which means you have to strap it on with an elastic band. Other than that, a good piece of kit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally unreliable, 29 Oct. 2014
I have this located right next to the PC I use it with. It was OK to start with but, as other people have mentioned, the connection now drops approximately 6 or 7 times a day. Each time you have to unplug and plug it back in. The thing can then be re-connected until the next time it drops out. Totally unreliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some people are beyond help!, 19 Oct. 2014
This review is from: See You There (Audio CD)
Is it just me or are some of the ignorant comments here missing the abject poignancy of this album? This is a guy who has given so, so much to the music world and who is now literally singing his last goodbye. Alzheimer’s has claimed the man he was and he is now in a specialist home, lost to his family and lost to the world.

Please Google the Guardian album from a few days ago and click the link to his final song, 'I'm Not Going to Miss You'. If you can then come back here and slag him off again you are beyond help. Sleep well!

1.0 out of 5 stars This guy should read his own book, 12 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You have to be kidding me! This guy sounds like he's barely just got out of bed after a heavy night with his close friends Donny Jagerbomb and Billie Curry.

If you want to be inspired by the people who are supposedly passing on wisdom then ignore this redneck and pick up a Tony Robbins CD.
