Skullcandy TITAN Earbuds - Black/Chrome
Skullcandy TITAN Earbuds - Black/Chrome
Offered by WorldTech UK
Price: 24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic look & build and the sound is great., 16 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to replace V-Moda Vibe Duo earbuds that had a weak spot – the L-shaped plug that eventually cracked. These are metal bodied with a straight in-line plug and rubberised leads that won't crimp. They also come in a great little round hard case, that's helps keep the leads tidy when put away. For less than a third of the cost of the V-Moda set, I'd recommend these highly.

Just one note of caution....check the volume before you switch on your iPhone/iPod. They are so powerful, I've nearly blown my head off a couple of times!

5.0 out of 5 stars World's Best Air To Air Photography!, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another year, another great Flying Legends calendar from John Dibbs. Surely the best air to air warbird photography around, Dibbs gets really close to the subjects so you can see very detail – remarkable when you consider the speed they must be travelling. As usual, good enough to frame when the calendar is finished with. Highly recommended.

I purchased these to replace a set of Sennheiser MM50iP that had fallen apart. These are fantastic quality - great sound and sturdy metal build. Also look great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb photography!, 14 Dec 2011
A great little book, John Dibbs' first. The old warbirds are really brought to life by his fantastic pin-sharp images. Some are realy evocative and look like paintings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very short (the film, not the painter!), 2 Dec 2011
My wife and I purchased this DVD after attending the 'Leonardo Live' show and in preparation for visiting the exhibition. Tim Marlow is always excellent, but please be aware the running time is only 23 minutes - a detail sadly lacking on the Amazon page. A better buy - if you can find it - is the BBC/Alan Yentob series 'Leonardo', which includes 'The Divine Michelangelo' as a bonus disc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor product for my new iMac, 4 Oct 2009
I purchased this for my new iMac to connect to my LaCie back up drives. I couldn't mount them and the MAC didn't recognise the drives. The drives connected to my son's MacBook (standard FireWire connection) effortlessly, so the fault was not with the LaCie cable. After a lot of fiddling and great help from the LaCie site helpline I concluded that the adaptor was faulty. I gave it up and bought a Sonnet Technology FireWire 800 to 400 Adapter instead. This is superb and works straight away. I would advise buying this product as it is a straightforward, neat plug in adaptor, with no extra dangling cables to tidy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the standard Apple set but disappointing for price, 4 Oct 2009
I bought these after being really disappointed with the standard Apple headset that came with my new iPhone. Apart from the lack of 'blocking out' when worn outside, they also kept falling out of my ears! Bud-type inner ear models were the obvious solution and these were fantastic while they lasted. After about 6 months they kept falling apart and ended up not working out of the left, from I suspect a loose wire. Disappointed as they are a good brand and not cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World's Best Aviation Photography!, 20 Oct 2006
This book represents an anthology of the best of John M Dibbs' Flying Legends calendars, which get better every year. The stunning photography really brings these old warbirds back to life and many of the shots are so evocative they look like paintings. John M Dibbs is a world class photographer, the quality of his pin-sharp photographs - taken at high altitude and high speed - are absolutely breathtaking. Your coffee table deserves this book!

The Flying Legends calendars are legendary themselves - they get better every year. John Dibbs' stunning photography really brings these old warbirds back to life. If you like this kind of photgraphy - some of the images really are beautiful - the shots can be mounted and framed when the year is out. Exceptional, like his books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Story of Art, 3 Nov 2002
This review is from: The Story of Art (Paperback)
I first read this definitive introduction to art history when studying for my A Levels and again when at Artschool. Since then I have always recommended this excellent book to anyone who wants an easy-to-understand explanation of Art and its origins. The latest reprint has updates that add value to the earlier editions.
