2.0 out of 5 stars Brooklyn missing???, 3 Nov 2013
This concerns the kindle version. It's the usual Time out quality with good up to date reviews. There are two big buts: no offline maps and really embarrassing: no chapter on Brooklyn in the sights unlike the Bronx or Queens. I assume the latter is a glitch as Brooklyn gets mentioned In other chapters like nightlife or restaurants.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, excellent production, my album of the year, 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amygdala (Audio CD)
Leftfield, certainly but very accessible. While different tracks work best at different times such is the variety, each and every one is a masterclass in layering, sampling and researching sounds.
Nices Wölkchen, Magical Boy, Das Wort, and Homesick, a fantastic cover of the Kings of Convenience song, are outstanding but the rest is excellent as well. Most of the stuff is down tempo but there are so many things going on in every track that even after 50 listens there is much to discover.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good, 27 May 2013

Read this after reading his naked economics which is highly recommended. This is a dryer subject but he still manages to make it entertaining and relevant. There are parts in the book which are quite mathematical but it is kept to a minimum.

Not fast, not particularly compact or well made but did the job as usb external hard drive for my iMac as a timemachine. Gave up the ghost and refuses to be recognized or do anything as of today after 21 months. Not recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid!, 31 Jan 2013
I bought the helmet in a French ski resort. The thing is reasonably comfortable and the integrated headphones though not great are a nice gimmick. Two buts though: first ventilation. If you are of a sweaty disposition this helmet gets very warm and wet and takes ages to dry. Second -and this is a big fat but: the clip to retain the ski googles does not work. It's more of a silly excuse as it does not lock properly. No button or rubber band or anything to really secure the goggles. I lost a pair of 90 ski googles on the first day of owning this helmet just by pushing them up whilst on the chair lift. Lesson learnt: bring your goggles to the shop when looking for a helmet! Try the helmet on with goggles to make sure it fits! Then take the helmet off and give the thing a good old shake with the googles on the helmet. Happy shopping!

Article arrived in time and seemed well made. Pity it does not fit or stay put in any of my optical links including apple tv, blue ray player, cd player or digital amp.

2.0 out of 5 stars very comfortable, ok sound, flimsy build quality, 28 Aug 2011
Got this after losing my superb Shures SE 535. I also own the Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10,and the Sennheisers IE8 and led by many good reviews was looking for these as something more comfortable than the Ultimate Ears which sonically are the best of the lot. As far as others in ears go had been annoyed by constant niggles with the remote control cable for iphone, available for the Shures, which had to be changed twice in 4 months. I also found the bass a bit too bloated for the Sennheisers. Although all of these ear phones offer good sound quality.
Back to the Klipsch X10i:

Plus: Very comfortable, decent seal, ok sound isolation.
Remote control works well
Very small, light, you really forget wearing them.

Cons:
Cable noise
Sound quality very mediocre compared to any of the aforementioned sets, there is a bit of a bloated upper bass, no real deep bass and overall a lack of detail. They are pleasant enough but I have a pair of cheap Sonys who do the same job for about 20. I was actually quite surprised given the glowing reviews in What Hifi and here on Amazon. I was wondering if I had a pair of cheap fake ones but given that I bought them directly from Amazon Germany I would hope not.
Anyway more annoyingly they broke down with the left membrane giving up the ghost after about three weeks of usage. I have send them back for a repair on warranty which should take about 4 to 6 weeks. Oh well...

Altogether one can do so much better for the same money...If you don"t need the remote then go for the Shures, which are comfortable, sound great and offer excellent sound isolation. If you need a remote go for the Ultimate Ears which are slightly less comfortable than the rest but sound superb and durable. I have had them for three years and no cable issues whatsoever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best mix cd of 2008, 6 Feb 2009
This review is from: Sci Fi Hi Fi Vol 4 (Audio CD)
Simply the best mix CD of 2008. Deep, warm techhouse that is beautiful from start to end and does laidback as well as warm-up for things to come.
Lovely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sound but not perfect, 3 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got these thinking they might be an upgrade to my Shure SE530 as suggested by a German HiFi magazine. And yes they are great sounding in ears which offer a tad more clarity and slightly cleaner, leaner bass compared to the excellent Shures. They are however nowhere near as comfortable, the cable is quite fiddly and the sound isolation not a patch on the Shures, which means you end up cranking the volume higher to get the same level of detail. They also stick out quite a bit and look a little too Star Trek for my liking. One also constantly feels they are there unlike the Shures which you forget about after a while.
They are a great piece of kit but probably more suited to using them at home where sound isolation is not a big issue rather than on the go.
