5.0 out of 5 stars Good Sound / Great Price!, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had a set of these for over a year, and have been very happy with them - I paid 70 and was happy at that price. Now that I've seen them reduced to 19... I've bought an extra pair to keep as spares!

I use these for listening to music at my desk at work.

They are comfortable for long periods of wear, though being a glasses wearer they can sometimes cause a bit of soreness where they press my ears against the legs of my glasses after a long period.

They are very good at reducing distracting sounds from the office environment - I often have colleagues waving frantically and throwing things to get my attention :)

The sound quality is superb, very clear and nicely balanced.

The cable is approximately 1.2m long, and has an inline remote/mic if you use it with an ios device - however they still function as headphones regardless of what you plug them into, and just the romote/mic no longer work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Converted!, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was somewhat sceptical as to whether sunrise alarms actually worked.

it took me a few weeks to get used to it, but now it really does work - it's a very pleasant way to wake up in the morning as you slowly become aware of the gradually brightening light.

DAB reception is occasionally a little sketchy, however I'm prepared to give that a by as it may well just be the reception in my area.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so good with LED bulbs, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware - using this lamp with the newer LED type bulbs causes difficulty - The bulbs are heavier and upset the balance of the springs in this lamp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best wallet that I've owned, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having looked for ages for a slim wallet to keep cards and banknotes together, without getting too bulky in my pocket I came across this fantastic wallet.

Nowhere to stuff receipts, no coin pocket - Great! They just make a wallet fat anyway.

And who really needs the receipt for your 3 coffee from starbucks that will probably fester in your wallet for months until you clear it out, and throw it away anyway.

2.0 out of 5 stars Leaky spout, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks great, unfortunately has a tendancy to leak around the spout - can't quite determine if it's a bad pourer, or if there is actually a leak at the base of the spout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hayfever begone, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Keep this running in by bedroom 24/7 during the hayfever season with windows closed. It's great to wake up in the morning and not start sneezing straight away.

Only downside is that on hot summer nights, keeping the windows closed to operate the filter effectively means a very sweaty nights sleep. Roll on affordable air conditioning!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great microwave, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works well as a microwave.

Chaos Defrost is superb.

Tried the oven function over Christmas for the first time due to lack of space in main oven, and it dealt with roast potatoes admirably! It was great to be able to watch them browning to perfection.

Will use more often as a substitute for main oven in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fancy Cups, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First saw these in Zizzi Restaurant, and when I found them for sale here I bought some straight away!

They look fragile, but don't appear to be any more so that an ordinary glass.

Look great with coffee from my Nespresso machine!

Slight irregularities in sizes due to being hand blown.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought numerous trimmers over the years to tame my facial fuzz, these are by far the best I have used.

The Good Points:
* They neatly trim my fairly heavy beard - others seem to struggle, and require going over the same area repeatedly - Not this device, it cuts through on first pass!
* A charge seems to last for ages (at least 4/5 trimmings).
* Multiple length guides
* Feels solid!

The bad points:
* Comparatively expensive (however other cheaper alternatives aren't as effective)

Things to note:
This is the second of these trimmers that I have owned - my previous Whal Li, is still going strong, however through a lack of maintenance some teeth from the cutting head seem to have gone missing over the four years that I owned it.

Good quality sticker, waterproof and strong adhesive.

It's just a shame that the junk deliverers don't always pay attention to it!
