Price: £9.37

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted something that was simple and cheap. The build quality is good and they come in a little presentation box. The blue strip is a bit lighter than in the picture though.

Bought this for my friend's birthday to annoy him - the mug and the print are of good quality and the delivery was quick.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The material is actually quite soft - so doesn't get sweaty or irritate your face - and fairly opaque, however, it doesn't fit around the nose that well. The elastic does degrade after a while, so I had a tie it in a knot to tighten it. I've been using it for the last 6 months and it does the job!

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but doesn't dissolve well., 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The taste is OK and they seem to work fine, however, they don't dissolve that well, so sometimes there is some crusty stuff left at the bottom.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but broke quickly, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound was perfectly fine and the volume was probably actually louder than the previous headphones, however, the cable attached to the jack frayed after about 2 months. They do have a bit of a cheap feel and the rubbery bits weren't all that grippy, but for £3, I wouldn't expect more.

I wore this for a fancy dress party and everyone thought it was great. It is made from 100% polyester, so has a nasty, cheap feel and look to it, but this is always seems to be the case with fancy dress items! The fastening were reasonably attached and the stitching looks of reasonable quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for., 9 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For £1.20, I thought I would give this a try before throwing away my old keyboard and mouse. Most of the time it works fine however, the 'backslash' and multimedia keys do not work on my old Logitech keyboard. The mouse occasionally refuses to work and must be re-plugged in. Another quirk is that if you are holding a key down and press another key, the initial key ceases to be active - for example, if you are playing a racing game and are holding 'forward' and press 'left' to turn, the forward motion will cease until the button is released and pressed again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works, but is slow., 9 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, this doesn't come with a power supply cable so make sure you have one before purchasing this item. As my old PC died, I needed to be able to get all my files off my old IDE drive, so I bought this cable. However, the transfer rate on my system only seems to be about 1MB/s - it might just be my setup, so I can't comment for other computers. Other than that, it works fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars You could use these to sleep on a buildings site... and I have!, 21 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These ear plugs are very effective - if you use them properly. The walls in my student house are paper thin and I can hear every time someone opens the door, goes to the toilet or sneezes; however, with the plugs fully inserted, I cannot hear a thing. At home, my house is a permanent building site, with saws, hammers and sanders blasting away in the early hours, but they can only be heard as dull thuds!
It does have it limitations: it doesn't block out low-pitched noises very well e.g. if you live next to a person with a very low voice!

A few tips:
-The plugs have to be rolled very thinly between the thumb and forefinger, then quickly inserted into the ear. You have to put them fairly deep to be effective - this can be a bit uncomfortable at first, but you quickly become accustomed to it.
-Don't wash them in hot water: this makes them sponge like and they become useless.
-If they are uncomfortable, place only 1 plug in and sleep with the other ear to the pillow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, 24 Feb 2010

The fan is relatively quiet (I can't hear it over my other fans). It does the job, and for the money, I can't complain.
