2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money., 23 Feb. 2012
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
I was really disappointed with this product, it does its job, but not very well.

I've had it since November & want to explain why I don't like it.

1. Sound.
The sound is pretty decent, you can plug it into a computer and alter the settings yourself. You can save up to 8 of your own pre-sets & can actually alter them while you're playing & connected to your PS3 or Xbox.

Using red/white audio cables.
- Terrible quality, you get so much background noise that you can only really hear things if you have them on high volume, which presents a new problem. Use optical if you can.

Noise cancellation.
- I would have expected these to be pretty good at both keeping noise in and keeping noise out. It does neither. You can still hear everything when you've got them on & when you have them turned up loud everyone else can hear you!

- They're so bad at keeping noise in that they act like small speakers, even on someones head the sound through the headset can be heard from the next room. Which defeats the entire purpose of having a set of headphones instead of speakers.

2. Voice.
- On the Xbox it's good, you can hear people clearly and they can hear you well too. On the PS3 however, they are absolutely awful. You can barely hear anyone and they have trouble hearing you, there's always a background buzz.

- You get a bluetooth adapter and a cable for the xbox 360. Not sure what the point in having both is but they are simple to use. Unless of course you have a steering wheel or you want to use a chat-pad. Since the bluetooth adapter won't fit in the port on either. I'd assume this would be the case with any of the rock band peripherals too.

- The microphone is irritating, you can remove it, which is nice when you want it for music, but it's made of a metal spring-thing that can be pushed away from your mouth by the movement of your lip. You're constantly trying to bring it closer.

3. Other.
- The wireless transmitter is terrible, it interferes with the internal wifi on the xbox 360. Which means if it's within a metre it can cause network issues & even disconnect you from xbox live.

- Price: It's not worth anywhere near £179. I can get a better set of headphones for £40 & a better microphone for £5. A bluetooth reciever costs £2. Where they get this price from I do not know!

Summary:

If you want an over priced product that does everything you want it to do very badly then by all means, buy this product.

The small - A little bit small, but not too small.

It looks great if you went your time standing up, but if you sit down the quite chunky fabric that the buttons button up into stick out.

Good blades. Come in a plastic dispenser that fits under the housing the Mach 3 razor comes on. Only problem is that the pad on the leading edge tends to build up some kind of dry watery plasticy bit where the water drys off & the blade slightly touches the dispenser.

Fairly good price and looks great. It's such good quality for thin material. It's made of two thin layers. the outside is as you see in the picture, the inside is a checkered black & white pattern. For me, it has a good loose fit, but is still well fitting.

I came back on to buy another in a different colour but sadly seems to be discontinued.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better, 5 Nov. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
For the price, you'd think this would be a brilliant headset, no it's a good one.

It's often very uncomfortable to wear, the head strap on the top hurts after about an hour of use and the texture of the grey plastic is horrible to touch. Makes for uncomfortable wearing and use. The ability to move the headphone cups at a 90 degree angle is useless as if you do that, it'll choke you.

The eats batteries like no tomorrow, why it doesn't have a battery pack built in I have no idea!

Other than that, great bass, great sound. another issue is the fact it is useless at keeping the noise in. It can keep noise out fairly well but they are like small speakers, so having them on at night ends up having the same effect as having your TV on. Everyone else can still hear your game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gum, 22 Oct. 2011
Never go anywhere without gum, every day, all day. Saves me buying it over and over again having a bulk order like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 19 Oct. 2011
Good gloves, depending on what you will use them for they will last a while. I work for a supermarket at night and thus need something to protect my hands and help grip items all night. Working fresh foods, hands can get cold, these provide some warmth too. A little thinner than I would have hoped but will be ordering a new batch as they are better than my previous pair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely incredibly beautiful., 7 Oct. 2011
RIP Steve.

This is an absolutely amazing product. I have had it for 2 weeks today & after some initial issues with connectivity I saw what the iPad was about.

You'll need to download some apps and play about with it for a while. The design is the best part about the iPad 2, it feels expensive (because it is), it feels like something NASA would produce. You can go from page to page with ease, no bugs, no lag.

Want to know more? Buy it!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst movie ever made, 6 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Catwoman [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
There is nothing in the world that is as bad as this movie. A cat with 1 leg and rabies is better than this. Avoid at all costs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that impressed but okay., 5 Sept. 2011
I'm not that impressed with these. I have been size 10 with every boot, shoe, slipper and piece of footwear on the market. I have had "Groundwork" boots before & they fitted fine. These however are too big, so I need them very tight & they rub.

The second problem is the soles, they must be glued down with PVA glue. I have used these for two nights in work since I got them. First night they started rubbing, second night the soles came apart from the shoe itself & started to move backwards, leaving a gap where my toes should be. Very uncomfortable & gave me some rather nasty sores.

Other than these issues, they are built well (on the outside at least) & resist to knocks very well, you can kick pallets/crates without even a scratch.
