2.0 out of 5 stars Commuters Beware, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My purchase of these headphones was based on my desire for a better quality sound than my current in-ear phones can provide, and having used Sony headphones in the past I was sure that they would be more than suitable. The sound they produce is decent, good when you consider the price, but they suffer from one major, major flaw.

The sound leakage on these headphones is absolutely dire. At slightly above 30% volume on my iPod, anyone within 5m can clearly hear every note and word of my music. Don't even think about high volumes; at 60% volume with my MacBook, the headphones are ACTUALLY LOUDER than the speakers of my laptop (and this is while on a person's ears). I bought these headphones for my commute, but I may as well have been sitting on the train playing drum and bass from my phone's speaker.

Being unable to return these as I have opened the packaging, I can't see myself ever using them again. They are comfortable, and the build quality is very decent, as well as the sound quality; however, I cannot stress enough how laughably bad the leakage is on these headphones. Please consider a different set if you have any respect for the people around you.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...Pretty Much The Best There Is..., 7 Jun. 2007
As well as being the defining icon of my generation, the iPod's 5th incarnation is here to remind everyone that it is the best at what it does. It takes all the important factors (video playback, battery life, sound quality and volume, etc) and gets them all done, and well, but what Apple really get right here is making sure there are practically no disadvantages. For example, while Sony's A3000 has better sound than the iPod, it is also clunky, with practically no RAM, horrible menus and bad software. The iPod on the other hand is smooth and intuitive, and iTunes remains the industy leader. Another much touted 'disadvantage' is the iPod's lack of ability to use it as a hard drive: this is a total myth. One click of a check box in the iTunes preferences, and you have a fully functional removable hard drive. In the end, the iPod is just shinier, more fun and better to use than any MP3 player available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Made Comedy, 2 Nov. 2005
The smash US sitcom Arrested Development returns for another season. The hilarious Season 1 saw Michael Bluth doing everything he could to keep the Bluth Company afloat, get his father out of jail and keep his family from destroying themselves and each other [all from behing the wheel of an airport stairlift] and Season 2 is no less frantic and hysterically funny. The family returns with the exact same pathetically-moronic charm and Michael again has to juggle fatherhood, family, finances and finding his own happiness. This second season still makes perfect watching, and never lets up on the laughs with perfect plot twists, unusually good guest stars (Liza Minelli returns as Lucille 2 and look out for the hilarious ex-Fonz Henry Winkler as the family's bumbling attourney Barry Zuckerkorn) and excellent-as-usual story pacing.
This seems to be the phrase of the year for U.S. sitcoms, but Arrested Development very well could be the best show on television, and a definate DVD must-have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crime Pays, 23 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Run Baby Run (Paperback)
The first half of Nicky Cruz's harrowing personal account of growing up as a feared New York gang leader will not seem a typical testimony of finding God, nor should it. It is violent, graphic, as gritty and real as they come and at times even hard to read in it's intensity. It will entertain even fans of gangster films: images from certain passages of this book have stayed with me since my childhood when I first read them. But all the more powerful comes the message of the latter of the book as Cruz reforms his life through a chance encounter with a preacher. This may seem a 'typical' ending for a religious book, but his journey to that point is a revelation in Christian literature, and should not be overlooked by any means. An incredible account, and a great book.
