Ultra Hot Ceramic Hair Straightener
Ultra Hot Ceramic Hair Straightener
Offered by Hairco
Price: £29.83

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and quality, 17 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great value, they are very good as the other reviews have said.

The heat plates are made from 100% ceramic which is quite rare - only the GHD has similar that I know of.

I bought this for my wife and had to do a lot of searching and review reading to find a good one, having bought a few poor versions in the process - although they had very good reviews - perhaps my wife is hard to please!

The wife is very happy with it and cannot really fault it.

The cable is about 3 meters long which is great.

It has 3 temp settings, 180, 200 and 230c.

It has been ergonomically designed and fits well in the hand with a non slip handle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its okay for the price, 11 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its okay for the price, dont expect anything special, they are pure covenience over fuction. This is not proper hi-fi, the overall sound is not natural.

Perhaps they are good for in-ear/ear bud type phones but they are no way near good enough to satisfy an audiophile.

Buy yourself some decent on/over ear phones. Something like Sony MDRZX300/310 is a fraction more but are much better.

DacMagic XS USB DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) / Headphone Amp
Offered by Cambridge Audio
Price: £99.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but I want more, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good but I want more, my Asus headphone output is as good as the DacMagic, in fact I slightly prefer the Asus but the DacMagic has a slightly cleaner sound but it lacks a bit of ambience and top end detail.

Overall it is hard to fault it and I much preferred it to the Dragonfly 1.2 which I did not like.

I like the volume control feature and the build quatily is very good. I would prefer to have the option of plugging it directly into the USB port(like the Geek out)as I like to move my laptop about a lot and I found the short USB lead/tail causes it to dangle which makes it awkward to move.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't like them, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't like them at all, they are pure covenience over function. This is not proper hi-fi, the overall sound is not natural.

How did What Hi-Fi give these 5 stars? Perhaps they are good for in-ear/ear bud type phones but they are no way near good enough to satisfy an audiophile.

If these were given to me for free I would give them away or they would go straight in the bin.

Buy yourself some decent on/over ear phones. Something like Sony MDRZX300/310 is a fraction of the cost and are much better.

For those people who have given this 5 stars and you dont mind spending a bit more for something really special - try the Yamaha HPH200 for about £90 on Amazon and hear what you have been missing out on.


Remington S9500 Pearl Hair Straightener
Remington S9500 Pearl Hair Straightener

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my wife and she was very disappointed by its performance, her older models of Remingtons were much better. It did not appear to get hot enough even at max. temp to be effective and required 2-3 strokes at least to have any effect.

She found the grip slippery and ended up with a painfull burn - so would reccomend a heat glove.

Would not reccomend

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay, 8 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just okay, I would not recommend them and I sent them back.

I also had an issue a few times with the unique connectors into the ear buds that caused the sound to stop in one ears. This was easily remedied by twisting the plug but never the less was unnecessarily inconvenient.
