5.0 out of 5 stars Good sound quality, 17 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These GRDE in ear headphones use Bluetooth to connect the headphones rather than the traditional wired approach. The headphones are lightweight and easy to pair with a Bluetooth device. The headphones also feature near field peer to peer communication. This allows you to pair the devices simply by bring the devices close together. I found that the pairing usually takes place at a distance of about 15cm give or take. Once the devices are paired the will continue to connect for a distance of up to 10m.

The headphones are charged via a micro USB (wire but not charger provided) and each charge provides approximately 6 hours of listening time. The headphones take approximately 1 hour to fully charge.

The sound quality provided is good, especially for Bluetooth headphones. Sound is crisp and clean, with the higher ranges coming through especially well. Bass is a bit limited, but that is frequently the case with in ear headphones due to the size of the speaker. I have a pair of Sony over ear Bluetooth headphones and with the exception of the base the sound quality is very comparable. The headphones also features volume controls on one earphone and forward, back track on the other.

In addition the headphones come with a charging wire, 4 spare tips and an instruction manual. Further they are presented in a very nice white box should you want to give the item as a present.

Overall, a lightweight product ideal for exercising. Sound quality is good and the ear buds fit well. They are not the best quality headphones on the market, but for a lightweight Bluetooth pair they are very good.

This daisy loom refill pack comes with 4800 bands in 20 different colours, 180 clips, 3 hooks and 5 charms.

The quality of the bands is good, they are reasonably stretchy and so far we have not come across any broken bands. I personally cannot detect the fruit scent; to me they smell of rubber but not excessively so. The hooks provided are ok but I am informed by the expert in the household not as good as the metal tipped ones. Otherwise a very good set; and great value at this price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, effective and inexpensive, 10 April 2015
This is a very simply car phone holder for a Smartphone or other small mobile device. It works using a magnet, which you attach to your phone and then use to ‘clip’ the phone to the holder. The system works well and so far my phone hasn’t fallen off. However, I do find it difficult to achieve the angle on the phone I would like. Perhaps this is due to the location of the vents in my car, which are quite low, but I was not able to get as clear a view of my phone as I would like.

I can see this being ideal for some users. If you are frequently in and out of the car and want a fast effective system, this will work really well.

Symphonized MTRX Premium Genuine Wood In-ear Noise-isolating Headphones with Mic and Nylon Cable (Black)
Offered by SeventhContinent
Price: £49.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 10 April 2015
These Symphonized earphones both look fantastic and have a great sound quality given the price that is being asked for them. Even the bass, so sadly lacking in so many earphones, makes a reasonable appearance. The volume level is good. About 50% of max output produces a good level of volume with a low level of distortion.

The noise cancelling element is present but limited compared to many more expensive headphones. Given that they are in ear and available for £10 at the moment, I think that is forgivable.

They come with a storage bag and spare earpieces in different sizes allowing for a comfortable fit.

The only negative so far is that the cord (nylon I think) is noisy when it rubs against the material of one of my coats. It makes a little noise with my other jackets, but nothing much.

Overall a good looking pair of earphones, with good sound quality, available at a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A High Quality Item, 5 April 2015
This Taotronics desk lamp is an impressive unit. It features a large head, approximately the same size as a Kindle which provides the illumination. The light colour can be adjusted using the 4 touch sensitive buttons on the base and ranges from an intense white light, which I find ideal for reading to a buttery yellow colour more suited to relaxing.
The light also features a single USB port that can be used to charge phones and other portable devices. The USB port is discretely located on the base of the unit, meaning it is both accessible and does not ruin the aesthetics of the lamp.

The lamp arm adjusts as does the head allowing the light to be focus in whatever way you want. The three joint system the lamp uses is excellent and really does allow you to focus the light exactly how you want. The lamp also features a heavy base, which means that you don’t have to overly worry about tipping the lamp over as you are adjusting it.

Whilst sold as a desk lamp I am finding I am utilising it more as a reading light. In fact I would say it is probably the best reading light I have come across so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun addition to the garden, 5 April 2015
These Chinese lanterns are solar powered and provide a low level of illumination throughout the night. They are fairly easy to assemble, simply take the top off, insert the wire to give the globe shape and replace the top. They are then ready to hang.

However, the main purpose of these lights is decorative, and this is a job they do extremely well. I currently have the three lights hanging in a tree in the garden. They look great both during the day and at night. They have also survived a day of heavy rain without any problems.

Overall I have been very pleased with these lights.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made, 4 April 2015
This is a good quality accessory kit for the Gopro Camera. All of the accessories are well made and feel really durable. The Monopod in particular feels really solid. The camera is easy to attach to all the accessories and the sizing on the head and chest harness is both good and adjustable.

Overall I have been really pleased with the set and have had no issues with its use. I however have not had the opportunity yet to try the float for underwater filming. I will update my review once I have tried this accessory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Supportive and comfortable, 1 April 2015
This knee brace from Ipow is soft and comfortable to wear. It is held in place by three Velcro straps which are easy to fit and provide a good level of grip, holding the brace firmly in place. It also features two rubber lines at each end of the brace that provide additional grip and prevent the brace moving once in place.

The support provided by the brace is excellent but it does limit movement a little. I regularly hike and the reduction in movement is minimal and presents no problems. In fact it is easy to forget that you are wearing the brace. I have also tried the brace whilst running. Whilst running the movement limitation is a little more noticeable, not a major issue but you are certainly aware that you are wearing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good looking and great value, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In recent years Smartphone’s have become increasingly large and powerful. Unfortunately, the batteries have not kept up and now I am finding that my phone is struggling to make it through the day.

This device provides a solution to that problem, allowing you to charge Smart Phones or other portable devices on the move. Most mobile phone batteries are around the 3000 mAh size and so a 10400 mAh battery should provide around 3.5 charges assuming that the phone is completely discharged. Tablets tend to have larger batteries and so you will get fewer charges.

The Power Bank has a four blue led lights that display how much charge remains (each light representing 25% charge), two USB ports, one for tablets, the other for phone. It also comes with a storage bag and a USB to:

•Micro USB 2.0,
•Apple 30 pin,
•Apple 8 pin
•Micro USB 3.0

The Power Bank takes about 2 hrs to charge and is compact, about the size of a small external hard drive. It does however, feel quite heavy but having compared it to two other power banks I have concluded that actually is it about the same weight but smaller, which somehow gives the illusion it is heavier.

The finish on the device is a soft burnished metal effect and rather attractive. The display is also rather nice.

Overall, I have been impressed with this device. It is compact and looks good. It charges reasonably quickly and is easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly small, 29 Mar. 2015
I was shocked when I received this item at just how small the device is. It measures just under 20 cm when folder but expands to roughly four times that length. It is also extremely light making is ideal if you want to put the stick in a pocket or bag.

Unlike some selfie stick this one feels fairly robust. The telescopic arm does not feel like it will easily bend out of shape and extends and retracts easily. The stick operates via Bluetooth and proved easy to pair with my Android phone.

Overall, a good quality and easy to use device.
