1.0 out of 5 stars Posh kid moans about posh dad and vice-versa, 14 Oct 2013
This review is from: Him & Me (Hardcover)
I'll be honest, I haven't read it. It just sounds like a terrible idea for a book. Smug gits, both of them.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Faulty Mono", 8 Aug 2012
This review is from: Sex Mix (Audio CD)
ZTT, a record company set up in 1983 by techno-whiz geek producer Trevor Horn, had by the mid 80s a reputation for controversy, innovation, and perhaps most impressively, superlative sound quality. The "Pleasure Dome" mixes are still sumptuous listening, with soundscapes to rival any of the other so-called "audiophile" records of the era (The Blue Nile, etc). Unfortunately, one would never know this from listening to the first 5 tracks of this CD, as a fault in the mastering process has rendered one channel of the original stereo recordings onto both the left *and* right channels, resulting in a kind of "faulty mono". This is a real shame, as sonically the rest of the CD still sounds as exciting and fresh as it did nearly 30 years ago. But alas, a defective product is a defective product, and it is with heavy heart that I award this release 1 solitary star.

2.0 out of 5 stars Better than the iPod headphones...., 28 Feb 2012
...but only just.

Good points:

- don't fall off when running

Bad points:
- don't sit on ears correctly, so no bass response
- sound muffles/disappears as you sweat

I put up with these for a year, but I've now upgraded to the Sennheiser/Adidas ones, which are SO much better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, 28 Feb 2012
I think these other reviews must have been written by employees of Mobee. Check out their forum for what this product is really like.
