MUSICAL FIDELITY MF100 HEADPHONES
MUSICAL FIDELITY MF100 HEADPHONES
Offered by Bentham Ltd
Price: £45.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but a tad bright!, 30 Dec. 2015
A bit tight on the head, and borderline too bright/tiring, but these are exceptional for the price (were £120 but now £45), and I mean for the original price. They are not bass light, but do not have the artificial bass lift so many other phones have, so the "Beats" generation might take a while to appreciate them. They are very different from the smooth, recessed sounding, headphones that dominate at present. They might be too much for some, but after a year or so of ownership they come out more often than my Grados do (probably being semi closed helps!). I would recommend these but with a bit of caution if you can't handle the top end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional sounding compact speakers., 30 Dec. 2015
I needed a compact pair of speakers for a second system, conventional 2 channel hi-fi, and these shone out on audition. These are well made and look fine. Where they really score is in sound quality. They are open sounding, dynamic, have a decent bass for such diminutive speakers, and sound big in a small to medium space. They have a sound which is closer to what you might expect from a very much more expensive pair, but at the same time are still kind on mediocre recordings. Highly recommended, though avoid placing near corners - they need space either side, but are less critical with rear walls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best all rounders yet!, 30 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first put these in my ears I thought here goes, a bit recessed like so many headphones, but after a few seconds they really start to shine. They are exceptionally well balanced for portable use (they have a bit of bass lift but not offensive as is the case with so many other phones). The whole range is reproduced well, and the bottom end comes in with tremendous power when needed - and not at the expense of the mid and upper range as is so often the case. Background is cut out well. Comfort is OK, though I prefer my RHAs in that respect. The rubber cable covering drags on the clothing a bit, and the attached mic' doesn't help. Again the polythene coated cables of the RHA 600s are quieter and drag less, and are also tangle resistant. All in all these are very good inner ear headphones, rating as my joint favourites - and an absolute steal at the current reduced price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional but too bright!, 30 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I very nearly gave them five stars. They are quite impressive across the whole range from the deepest bass through clear midrange to clean treble. Two things held these back, they are very tight on the head - regardless of how you adjust them. This is also the case with the cheaper MF-100s. The other thing that stops them being exceptional is the tendency for these phones to become tiring to listen to on account of the treble. Most phones I have listened to are a bit over smooth and recessed in the upper range. These are the opposite and it ultimately lets them down. Maybe they will sound better connected to a smooth source, but anything neutral to bright sounding raises concerns - though dull they're not!

Seems to work OK. Not as many oddities as my previous, and ultimately failed, Belkin one.

4.0 out of 5 stars After you've bought the classic Magazine albums try this., 29 Sept. 2015

Not their best known album but still worth having. About The Weather is an excellent track that imitates the 60s Motown sound very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good mouse., 18 Aug. 2015

A good mouse. Not sure whether it is any better than the optical version but I like the feel of the Genius mouse. Only had to buy a new mouse because of the fitting. These just last and last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, 18 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far so good, but there is signs that something is peeling off the surrounds and sole - but not an issue as of yet. Very comfortable.
