Koss Porta Pro Stereo Over-Ear Headphones for iPod, iPhone, MP3 and Smartphone - Black/Silver
Koss Porta Pro Stereo Over-Ear Headphones for iPod, iPhone, MP3 and Smartphone - Black/Silver
Price: 28.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound! BUT wiring will last 1year only, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I actually bought 2 headphones of this model.
I'm really impressed and satisfied by the quality of sound (in my opinion quality of sound is one of the best among the portable/light-weighted headphones.

However both of the models got wiring problems after 1 year of moderate usage.
Both of the headphones were used at office (i.e. in-house only). I guess if I was using them for running or outdoors - the wiring issue would've appeared even earlier.

Right now when the second headphone broke - I'm thinking of getting a better quality model with stronger wiring and same level of sound quality.
(or fixing the wiring myself LOL)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Sportswear and long-term odour, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm playing volleyball (3-4 times a week) - never used any spray for 9 months - and the odour had become really intolerable.

Initially I bought "odour eaters" product - which could beat the immediate odour, but couldn't do anything with "ingrained" odour. No luck at all.

This product finally could get rid of the smell. The reason I think - is the different principle:
Scholl sprays liquid - that evaporates and hence could penetrate the soft material of the shoe - killing the bacteria in it.

Odour Eaters - sprays something non-liquid - hence it beats the bacteria on the surface of the material - without getting really deep. Therefore - in principle it cannot beat the long-term odour

3.0 out of 5 stars Will not help you beat long-term odour, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It doesn't help to beat long-term odour (I'm playing indoor volleyball)

It might be useful as a preventive measure.
However this product has its own smell - which I don't like as well (it smells like a bacon).

Summary: it didn't help me.
Cannot recommend to anyone who is trying to beat the long-term odour.

UPDATE:
finally could find a product that was able to beat the "ingrained" odour
Scholl Odour Control Shoe Spray (150ml, 24hr Performance)

I'm playing volleyball (3-4 times a week) - never used any spray for 9 months - and the odour had become really intolerable.

Initially I bought this "odour eaters" product - which could beat the immediate odour, but couldn't do anything with "ingrained" odour. No luck at all.

Scholl "Odour Control for Shoes" finally could get rid of the smell. The reason I think - is the different principle:
Scholl sprays liquid - that evaporates and hence could penetrate the soft material of the shoe - killing the bacteria in it.

Odour Eaters - sprays something non-liquid - hence it beats the bacteria on the surface of the material - without getting really deep. Therefore - in principle it cannot beat the long-term odour

It is up to you to decide which one to use - in the described scenario - Scholl's approach is way better

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks nice - but has flaws, 27 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros: Looks very nice and stylish. Compared with different existing Cases - this one is nicest.

Cons: The leather is not durable. I own it for 4 months - and need a replacement because of all tears and scratches.
I used it very carefully - carried it always in my rucksack.
Once Galaxy Tab even fell off the case (luckily on soft surface) - the case frame due to time doesn't fix the Tab well.

Subtotal:
If you looking for a very stylish case that will look nice only for 4 months - it is a good choice.
But if you need something more durable - look elsewhere

P.S. - The Galaxy Tab itself is great. Much better than its competitors.
Very mobile (in comparison with 10" iPad - u don't feel carrying a "task board" with you :) ), supports Flash, has a lots of free software.


BRITA Maxtra Water Filter Cartridges 4 Pack
BRITA Maxtra Water Filter Cartridges 4 Pack
Price: 10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 27 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros: Good value for money. Filters water very well.

Cons: When meter shows 25% or less - sometimes you can see oil on water. Possibly it is because the filter gets too dirty.

Nevertheless - I'm going to buy another set right now
