5.0 out of 5 stars Sony MDR V150 - Headphones, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sony MDR-V150 Headphones with Reversible Housing for DJ Monitoring

I thought these headphones had been discontinued but was delighted to find they were still available.

In my humble opinion, they are one of the best closed ear headphones on the market for the price.

They sound really great, lots of bass, they are comfortable and a good fit, have a nice long lead, and are also great for DJ'ing due to the hinged cups.

The only downside is that after a while the plastic coating on the muffs comes off, and its a pity the 3.5mm jack isn't a right-angled one which makes it vulnerable to damage.

For 13ish they are a bargain!

There is no doubt that the case is better quality than most of the others on here, but I have one small complaint and that is when the case is closed the speaker is covered. This means that when its in your pocket/handbag its really hard to hear your phone ring.

I would not have paid 69.95 for it but it was well worth the 4.99 I paid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interview with Betsie Larkin, 6 Oct 2011
This review is from: All We Have Is Now (MP3 Download)
Interview with Betsie Larkin about her album "All we have is now", out now on Black Hole Recordings. The New York based vocalist and singer/songwriter Betsie Larkin, best known for her collaborations with Ferry Corsten on "Made of Love" and "Feel You", has been working hard to finish her debut album "All We Have Is Now". The release is finally here. The first single and title track, produced by Finnish duo Super8 & Tab, has already sent waves through the dance music community, shooting up the Beatport and Music Week Club charts. Talk of Betsie's album started with DJ/producer Ferry Corsten, soon after the release of his album "Twice In A Blue Moon", for which Betsie was featured on the tracks "Made of Love" and "Feel You". Ferry was quick to discover Betsie's talent for crafting songs, and invited her to create an album with backing from his new label, `Premier', a joint venture between Flashover Recordings, and Black Hole.

In a recent interview, Ferry said: "When I was looking for collaborators for my last artist album, I listened to literally hundreds of vocalist and songwriters both known and unknown. The beautiful, dreamy, lush vocals and insightful, intelligent and captivating lyrics of Betsie Larkin, completely blew me away. I knew that she was special".

Betsie enthusiastically began the preparations for her new album and reached out to a list of heavy-hitters in the EDM scene, and crafted a song or two with each producer. The result is twelve tracks that successfully fuse each producer's unique style with Betsie's signature song writing and vocals.

From Made of Love I fell in love with her voice and I often dreamt of having an interview with her. I'm so glad to have the opportunity with the release of her first EDM album, that I managed to ask her some very interesting, deep and thoughtful questions, and get back such interesting and thought provoking answers.

Enjoy the interview!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic Gate - Wake Your Mind - The New Artist Album, 6 Oct 2011
This review is from: Wake Your Mind (Audio CD)
Heralding a throng of fresh new tracks from the respected musical minds of Nic and Bossi, their fifth studio album includes the recent single The Theme and 2010's epic, majestic Barra; co-productions with international artists like Arnej, Myon & Shane 54 and Andrew Bayer and vocal team-ups with singers including Emma Hewitt, Aruna, JES, Cary Brothers, Cathy Burton + more.
Dreamtime is over. Wake Your Mind!!

2011 has proved to be another extraordinary musical year in the lives of Cosmic Gate. It's already brought the release of their early years retro-refit album `Back 2 The Future' - singles from which took up residence in Beatport's Top 10 for an unprecedented 3 straight months. They've also delivered their hugely received Essential Mix debut for BBC Radio 1 and have already brought the C.G. experience to close to a 100 clubs, arenas and festivals around the world.

Now - saving their biggest and best till last - they're about to crown the year with the release of their new artist album. Nic says: "Wake Your Mind is ourcollective call-out to the EDM universe. We want this album to shake up people's conceptions of our music..." "And blow the lingering, out-dated misconceptions to pieces!" adds Bossi.

From the first beat and bar of the album, C.G.'s finely tuned sonics tear relentlessly at the speaker fabric, with the strident, spiked synths of their Arnej collaboration Sometimes They Come Back For More leading the charge. Hot on its heels is their new single, Be Your Sound, which sees Nic and Bossi re-teaming (after 2009's Not Enough Time) with IDMA-winning vocalist Emma Hewitt. On Wake Your Mind vocals play an ever-greater part of their sound-design and the album sports some of their very best. Taking time out from his film & TV singer-songwriter activities (including work on Easy A & Grey's Anatomy), Cary Brothers provides the contemplative, low-fi, rock-ish refrain for the album's outstanding title track. Cathy Burton meanwhile applies serious uplift on Drifting Away, while Wake hits it euphoric high around the stabbed synths and up-rush of Over The Rainbow (vocalled by South African singer J'Something). Scene darling JES supplies the can't-miss vocal hook to Flying Blind and at the other end of the tempo scale Australia's Alana Aldea provides from-the-heart lyrics and flawlessly articulated vocallament to the slow burning Never Apart.

The Theme - Cosmic Gate's cover of Jurgen Vries' livewire club-smash - delivers another floor bomb-drop. Its appearance in Nic & Bossi's early summer club sets was the album's vanguard track and sparked a rash of `how-do-I-get-this?' questions from some of the world's biggest DJs.

As ever Cosmic Gate have looked to the less obvious margins to seek out the most imaginative co-production partners to work with on the album. Alongside Anjunadeep/Beats artist Andrew Bayer, they hit the `H' in `House' hard with Nothing Ever Lasts, which combines canyon-deep beats with swirling, sky-scraping prog atmospherics. Another vocal reunion (after the Sign of the Times track Under Your Spell) sees the Cosmics back in the studio with U.S. vocal doyen, Aruna. Completing the line-up (and forming something of a trance super-group in the process!) are Hungarian studio wizards Myon & Shane 54, and collectively they've created the heady, intoxicating All Around You.

Diverting brilliantly, Nic & Bossi continue to chart new courses and directions on Wake Your Mind. Whether it be the low-end tempo and hard-warp effects of Beautiful Destruction (Alana Aldea vocalling again) or the familiar, drifting sweep of their Brazil-gazing Barra, the album provides a 360, all-tastes-catered-for listening experience.

Forget what you think you know... and Wake Your Mind!

Not much to say really, its reasonally quick, a little fatter than previous models, which makes it easier to pull out, and may cause issues for some because of the close proximity of other sockets..
