Bought this for a timelapse setup and it worked great with a 5DmkII. Cables are nice and long which really helps.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very limited - just a reprint of some web articles, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had high hopes for this book but it turned out to be a bit lame. Just some reprints from web articles and not really proper step-by-step instructions. No illustrations either. The only saving grace is the LED fireflies project which is pretty cool and we've used a few times for fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars headband is a bit annoying, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for use with a PA system where i didn't want anyone hurting their ears - in that respect they work great by limiting the maximum possible volume. The trade-off is that the headband is pretty annoying - it doesn't stay at one setting very well so you are constantly adjusting it. In the end I stuck it down with some gaffa tape.
Also pretty pricey for what they are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful for hotels, 5 May 2014

I found this cable super useful for charging my iphone in a hotel while still using it. Hotel sockets are miles away from the bed somethimes so having a long cable is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfy and good listening experience - quality product, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like there headphones a LOT. I use them every day for commuting and I travel a lot on the train for hours at a time so I needed something that worked well. Was a bit overwhelmed by the choices so landed on these ones as they are designed in Glasgow of all places. Build quality is very good and sound is pleasant without being harsh. Some points to note.
1. Cloth cord is nice and while it does tangle, it UN-tangles much easier than a plastic one. It does absorb moisture though.
2. These headphones go a LONG way into your ear canal - if you don't like things poking in your ears don't buy these.
3. You pretty much HAVE to wear the cables up OVER your ears and down the back to get rid of any cable noise. I like wearing headphones this way anyway so it suits me fine, but if you prefer cables dangling downwards you're going to get a lot of noise when you move the cables.
4. Mic quality seems good - I've used them for conferencecalls and no-one comments.
5. Cable is LONG - like really quite long. Might annoy some folk. I like running the cable down inside my jacket then still having enough spare to pull the phone out of my pocket and read stuff so It's OK, but if you were small, or don't like lots of spare cable then might not go down well.
6. buttons work exactly as they should and are easy to find by touch alone.

Overall very happy with these headphones and glad to support local industry as it were!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for travelling, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best accessories I've ever bought for travelling - allowed us to charge up multiple gadgets overnight in a hotel room. Also excellent for use on the train where a single socket can charge smartphone, tablet, mobile etc. all at once. Highly recommended and the swappable sockets have proved very useful for trips abroad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable fit for all ages, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for my kids and was worried about the fit - in fact they are great and are tolerated very well and stay in much better than expected. Of course I adjusted the max volume limit on their ipods so they can't get too loud.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very thin book and all in the bigger cross sections book, 5 May 2014

This book is fine but if you already have the bigger DK cross sections book you already have everything it contains in that book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great and sounds good but don't expect lip-sync to be OK for watching videos, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This unit works great with iPod, iPad etc. but one small gotcha - the delay introduced by the bluetooth connection is just enough to throw the lip-sync off when watching videos. Of course you can still use the wire for that, but it's worth bearing in mind if you are thinking of it for enhancing video watching on an iPad etc.
