"When I was just a little boy...": Maidstone United and their rivals
"When I was just a little boy...": Maidstone United and their rivals
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, funny read, 30 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Admittedly I am a lifetime Maidstone fan, but any football fan would love this warm, funny book. Just buy it, read it, tell the world and be smug that you were a fan before they reached the football league!

5.0 out of 5 stars I've got a great pair of IT7x2 Bluetooth headphones for my Xperia z5 ..., 11 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really wasn't sure about buying this, after all it's £30 and that buys a couple of vinyl albums. But. I've got a great pair of IT7x2 Bluetooth headphones for my Xperia z5 and my sennheiser hd580s just sound a bit thin to me now, despite the Pro-Ject headbox and chord interconnects.
So, I Ordered them last night and when I'd given up hope of getting them today, a courier turned up and delivered them. Plugged them straight in set up easily and intuitively without needing the instruction sheet, and played the cd that was still sitting in the player, "after bathing at baxters" by Jefferson airplane, surely one of the greatest albums ever made and for the first 2 minutes it sounded horrible, then it all just seemed to snap into focus.
The range of sounds, gritty sharp edges, you can almost hear Marty Grace and Paul breathing and jacks bass has never sounded more threatening.
I've moved onto "crown of creation" now and I swear it's still getting better, the sound is still opening up, becoming bigger warmer and more engaging.
Simply, if you have a high quality pair of Bluetooth headphones, get this bit of kit. It's got APT-x, Bluetooth 4.1. It's not the low quality but functional v3.0 or v4.0, they worked for phone calls but best kept away from music. Bluetooth 4.1 with APT-x is for hifi lovers and music lovers.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed, and if you are, they offer your money back!

5.0 out of 5 stars excelent little speaker, 11 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
excellent little speaker perfect for the shower playing talksport from my phone nowhere near as loud as playing it from a separate radio outside of the shower. Two minor reservations: it does not automatically pair with my galaxy s5, I have to manually pair every time and it's not all that loud on anything other than maximum volume then it's a bit too loud. still sounds great though and has not got me into any trouble yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars galaxy s4 with infinite storage, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own a 64gb micro sd card for my galaxy s4, but that soon was completely filled with music. What to do when I go away and I want to watch a movie? This is the answer. The s4 reads a usb memory stick and can stream video flawlessly, making the s4 effectively infinite in capacity.
The only thing it can not do is wireless transfer video from pc to the memory stick as you can with the micro sd. Not a major problem and I think that is an issue with android and not the device
And it's small enough to fit in your pocket or headphone pouch!
All for £1.99.
I have noticed that it is not recognised by my son's RAZR I. I know it does not claim to but I thought if may be android universal. It's not.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasured memory, 24 Jan. 2013
if you are looking for technical perfection this is very poor, soft grainy images and mono sound, but if you were there as I was, with fading memories of a wonderful sunny day in the English countryside at the end of the greatest decade music has ever known watching the greatest band music has ever known then this will have to do and I for one treasure this as I treasure my memories of a great day

Brilliant product. Expensive but worth twice the money. Completely transformed the iPad. Easy to read outdoors on bright sunny days and fingerprints are a thing of the past. Not to mention, not one single scratch or scrape, the thing is indestructable!

2.0 out of 5 stars triumph of hype over substance, or maybe the emperors new clothes, 23 July 2009
This review is from: Gurrumul (Audio CD)
i know that this is an unpopular viewpoint, but in all honesty, to my ears, this is dull, dull, dull. every song sounds like a simple 20 second refrain, that is repeated for 5 minutes or so, never growing, developing or gaining my interest. to make it worse, each track sounds exactly like the last. i have to admit that i have only played this album once, and i stand to be corrected, but life really is too short. some of my favourite cds, i hated on first listening, but they at least caught my attention and made me want to listen again. this almost sent me to sleep on the motorway.

the man undoubtedly has a beautiful voice and a pretty, uncomplicated guitar style, (and i know that he has had to overcome real adversity, growing up blind in one of the most deprived societies on earth) and i am sure that hearing a single track on the radio, it would sound lovely, but a whole hour of the same thing is just excruciatingly tedious.

If you think that this music is lovely, i urge you to listen to Ayub Ogada's "En Mana Kuoyo" or "Songhai" by Ketama, Toumani Diabati & Danny Thompson. There really is so much better than this available to be discovered & heard

5.0 out of 5 stars buyer beware, 2 Oct. 2007
I bought a pair of cx300s a few weeks ago from Amazon market place for about £7, and to say that i was disapointed is an understatement - they were awful. i should of sent them back, but they did seem to improve a little, and with some cds they were almost acceptable, although the complete lack of bass could only be overcome by judicious use of the equalizer.

last night, i was doing some online research, when i came across the possibility that they were counterfeit. i compared all of the criteria, and they passed every one, suggesting that they were genuine, but they still sounded awful. Today, i bit the bullet & bought a new retail set. WOW!!! these headphones are AWESOME. With the equaliser flat, there is bass by the shedfull, yet the middle & treble are bright & clear. the new ones look identical, but audio wise, they are universes apart.

You may be tempted to buy cheap, and maybe there are genuine cx300s being sold cheap. Just don't say that you haven't been warned!
