5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible. Get more from your music.., 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After busting the headphone socket on my iPod i bought one of the line-out dock cables for it, whilst I could listen to the music, I couldn't change the volume, so decided to pick up one of these guys so I could, at last, vary the volume.

I wasn't terribly interested in the EQ it had (though i understand it's a big feature - i just wanted to be able to vary my volume) but after plugging it in, it's blown my mind. I'm hearing instruments and little ditties that i've never heard before. Ive got a pair of Sennheiser HD 380 pro's so the music quality I get is already pretty damn good, this is just taking it to new heights.

The three different EQ options are perfect for a range of music.
I've put it through it's paces with the
- Last Samurai - OST
- He Is Legend - I Am Hollywood
- Manowar - Louder than Hell
- Caspa & Rusco - Fabric Live 37

Bass where bass should be, Trebble in the right place all instruments and vocals clear and distinct. Well worth picking up as a way to get more out of your music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple + Cheap, but very good at what it does., 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are many other flip mats that are far more detailed and of a higher quality (and price) but if you're after a decent product at a good price, you can't go far wrong with this.

As the other reviewers have said, it does come folded, so I laid it out flat with some heavy books the night before a PF session which seemed to do the trick.

White board markers seem to workrather nicely, and they wipe off easy enough, it does leave a build up after several uses, but if you get a tissue spray some aerosol on it, it'll wipe off easy enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantatic. You won't care that you're buying a remake., 28 Dec 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a big fan of the Halo franchise and have always made sure i've bought every game when it comes out, with the exception of this one.

I um'ed and er'ed, thinking.. 'do I want to buy again a game i've already bought'. Well the Halo fan won out and I did buy it and i'm wondering why I ever questioned the decision.

The revamped graphics are just what you'd expect of a 2011 xbox game, coupled with the ability to swich to the original graphics makes for a really decent feature.

With these new graphics, you feel like you're playing an entierly new game, but there's still the memory there of speeding round the 'silent cartographer' mission or the damned 'Library', knowing that they didn't mess with the AI or the weapons (bring on the pistol) results in a game that, whilst feeling brand new, has a homely quality to it that keeps you going dispite knowing the outcome.

The revised multiplayer which they've kept in line with Reach, so you can use all the most recent features, workes well and with re-envisioned maps the whole lot is a decent package well worth the below average price it came in at.

A must buy for both Old and New Halo fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent second album, 28 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good second album from Murderdolls, though quite different from their first.

Whilst the first album was fantastic for it's no holds barred lyrics and it's light, fast sound, this second album retains the lyrics that you'd expect from Murderdolls, but have introduced a much darker, moodier sound to it. It's the right sort of progression and dispite this change still don't try to take themselves seriously.

Well worth purchasing so long as you're not expecting 'Beyond the Valley - MKII'

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it does, no more no less., 9 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They do the trick,
But like some people have said they do make the screen slightly duller, but that no big problem in my book.

The protector covers nicely, catering for the button, ear piece and camera nicely I didn't have any that weren't quite cut right like on some of the reviews, but it does cover the light sensor, however it's a tag about 1/2cm x 1cm.. so I cut it off.. pretty easy, not sure what everyone's moaning about.. simple solutions seem to escape some people.

Mine has a couple of marks after a day or twos use, but thats what it's there for, and I have 8 more to use (I messed one up only because I hadn't cleaned the screen, and put it down on a load of dirt) and for the price, who can complain.

Cheap, cheerful, does the trick, and at the end of the day you get what you pay for.
On that note, each protector comes with a cloth, which I didn't know, so always a bonus!

Made for Samsung' SAMGS2CCBL metal look Case - black - Galaxy S2 i9100'

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect extra for the Galaxy Sii, 9 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really nice case,
It gives the phone that little extra class that the regular plastic back was missing, the mesh has a nice aesthetic to it (Whilst protecting it from overheating i'm guessing)

Like others have said, it doesn't protect the very top, and very bottom of the phone, so if you're expecting a little more rough and tumble, go with something sturdier.

Otherwise this is just what it needs imho!


FiiO L3 Line Out Dock Cable for iPod, iPhone, iPad
FiiO L3 Line Out Dock Cable for iPod, iPhone, iPad
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product that saved alot of money., 6 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll explain my review title first..
The headphone port on my ipod is busted, only plays music out of one headphone. I have the 120Gig classic, and as such Apple said I have to pay £80-something to fix it (or more accurately replace it with another unit)

Now £80 doesn't come easily to me.. as such, this product was a saviour to the ol'wallet..

It attaches to the bottom of the iPod and has clasps that hold it in place (like some of the old iPod computer cables) so that it can't be accidentily pulled out when you remove it from you pocket, bag etc. like headphones can.

On the matter of sound quality, alot of people say they can hear a notable increase in sound quality, and this is true (I believe), it's not a lifechanging difference, but it's there, just on the edges.. slightly crisper, clearer.. so thats a bonus.

One thing I didn't realise when I bought it is that the sound only comes through at set volume level that you can't change. (which is why you'll see it advertised with an 'amp' like the FiiO E5 Headphone Amplifier) you'll need one of these if you want to change the volume.
The set volume you get without it is just right though (on the cusp of being to loud, but it doens't tip that line), so you'd be alright until you got one.

One thing I will say is that unlike if you were to remove your headphones from an iPod, the iPod pauses itself, and will turn itself off after ea time. Removing headphones from this thing won't cause it to pause itself.. so make sure you do. Twice now i've removed my headphones to use them on my computer at work and drained the battery just in time for the bus journey home..
[but to any sensible person this shouldn't be an issue]

In conclusion, a fantastic product, well worth it's cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic second 'post-incarceration' album from Burzum, 27 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fallen (MP3 Download)
Fantastic second 'post-incarceration' album from Burzum,
Fallen in many ways carries on from the previous (2010) album Belus, keeping some of the key features that make a Burzum album a Burzum album; Terrible sounding production, raspy voice and that really addictive 'monotomous' guitar riff that Varg laces into his songs that almost threatens to put you into a trance..

But with this album, Varg has also taken the album in some other really interesting directions,
as always Varg seems to make an effort to push the boundaries of the genre with his 'experimentalist' sytle, and Fallen is no different

The first main song on the album, Jeg Faller, kicks open with that trade mark, raw black metal guitar and before long his rapsy voice kicks in but soon after you get clean/clear singing.

The sheer difference between the singing/spoken word and the raw ugly guitar is highly effective and makes for compelling listening (and catchy tunes), whilst i'm sure there are some die-hard out there that will despare at this, I think this new progression really makes this album.

This style is continued across the 4 other main songs on the album (if you don't include the intro or instrumental outro) but with each track remaining unique and offering something different to the listener, I'd recomend listening to the whole album through the first couple of times to really appreciate what Varg has [succesfully] attempted to do with this album.

IMO this album is a well deserved 4/5 and well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb product, 27 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this on Thursday 23rd, payed the (more than reasonable) £8 to have it delivered by Friday, the next day, by 1pm. To which it arrived at 11.30am!

Fantastic quality product, looks good, the picture quality is excellent and its really easy to set up.
I have got a speaker system (but having moved house on friday its still in a box) so we've just had the TV speakers on the go, which are really rather good, no metallic, tinny sounds - handles a range of sounds (Music, Films and regular TV shows)

Well worth the money, and i'd definately recomend it to anyone.
