1.0 out of 5 stars So much better out there..., 29 July 2012
These are the most disappointing pair of cans I've ever bought. The £20-£30 budget headphone market has so much to offer these days, with decent offerings from Sony, Sennheiser, Koss, and more.
Once run in, these headphones do sound bassy, but they seriously lack clarity, especially when the volume is cranked up. They also feel heavy on the ears, I can't use them for more than an hour.
They do look good, and build quality seems solid (can't quite understand what the reviewers who snap them are doing). I love the jack plug, it has a long solid surround with it, but these are very small plus points.
I've gone back to my old Koss PortaPros, and wondering why I tried to change in the first place!

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 years on, still use them everyday!, 28 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've just stumbled upon this item on Amazon while looking for some new DJ headphones. I was not only surprised to see these earphones still high in the sales ranks on Amazon, but the instant order update told me I bought these in September 2008! They've been used with three mobile phones and a Walkman over the last 4 years, and still get daily use with my iPhone for the commute to work. Never have a pair of earphones lasted so long, but they just don't need replacing. The sound quality is excellent, with bass sounding deep, but not so much to reduce clarity. They're now £2 more than they were in 2008, but absolutely worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars The easy recipe book..., 28 May 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love this series of Hamlyn All Colour Cookbooks, and this is no exception. All these books are well presented, laid out in an easy to follow manner - getting the balance just right, it's neither daunting, nor condescending, and is accompanied by an inspiring photograph. My finished product may not look quite as professional, but these books have given me the confidence, and the will, to spend some quality time in the kitchen.
The beginner, to the moderately competent, are likely to get the most out of this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Packs a punch, but..., 27 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first started using this, I was a bit disappointed. Spend a bit of time with the bass and treble settings though and what you get is rich, deep sound. It's best for TV, makes watching movies more enjoyable. The settings allow you to have it VERY bassy, if that's what you like. Music can be a problem, because it's not true stereo. In my experience with it, a small handful of songs don't sound quite right played through it, but some others sound absolutely amazing.
Set up is easy, it comes with a TOSLINK cable for digital connection, but the cable is very short (a longer one can be found for under £10). Of course, using the iPod dock is preferable for music, but you can connect anything else to it via phono or 3.5mm jack. The blue LED on the front I expected to annoy me, but it's not over bright, and the flicker it gives you when receiving remote commands is helpful, as there's no display anywhere. The remote is a little bit cheap, but I like the size and shape, it's just a little bit bigger than those credit card remotes that come with cheap iPod docks. Unlike the cheap ones though, this remote gives you full iPod menu access, which is useful. Overall, both the soundbar and the sub feel very solid, with an attractive piano black finish. The metal speaker grille is also nice, it looks ever so slightly industrial, but lends a quality finish, much better than cloth. It may not be high on features, but you get great sounds for a reasonable price. It may not be perfect, but it is a quality product, and gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable once, but ultimately forgettable., 29 April 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A look in to general knowledge, and the London cabbie's knowledge test. A moderately enjoyable listen, but I doubt I'll ever go back to it.
Well produced, and Stephen Fry is pretty much the only guy that could have fronted this, but he's much more fun on television.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really handy little gadget., 22 April 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Beautifully presented, almost Apple-esque packaging, this little charger comes with a carry pouch, various travel adaptors, and two 'tails', one for charging Apple products (with a dock connector), and a micro-USB one. It's a shame more tails aren't included, but it's enough to get you going. The unit is sleek, small and powerful, capable of charging my BlackBerry Playbook (which most USB chargers won't do), and charges my phone quicker than the charger that came with it.
It's definitely better than using a standard wall charger, and kind of gives your devices a 'home'. It loses a star on the price though, but if you're happy to pay it, I doubt you'll be disappointed with the product itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 16 Mar 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was really looking forward to listening to this, being a fan of Stephen Fry, and a gadget geek.
I don't think I learned much from this, and there seemed to be huge sections of history that were very briefly skipped over.
If it's not expensive, by all means give it a go, but you'll only listen to it once.
