I have just had a total knee replacement and found that getting back walking has been more difficult than I thought, I had bought these boots a long before my operation and not used them much so thought I would see how I got on with them after my op, amazing. The way my foot rolled when I walked made the whole effort of waking so much easier, more comfortable and much less painful. The boots are very light, give great support and I find them very comfortable, so much so that I am considering buying a pair of the shoe version to wear on holiday in Florida later this year, as I will be on my feet a lot I think that the ventilation (my feet do not get hot in these) and comfort will be invaluable.

We have has a few cases over the years, mostly not lasting long or not fitting well, this case so far looks good. Time will tell,but hopefully this one will last longer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read the rest of the Katie Maguire series and had been looking forwards to this new book, unfortunately I was a bit disappointed, it all seemed to wrap up too quick at the end of the book. The story will no doubt continue into the next book, but I was left feeling as if I had missed something and there was more to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great set of Headphones., 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent! I sent back my pair of MDR-1R as they had an annoying rattle/knock from the cable jack connection, Sony has cured it with the MDR-1A. They have only had about 12 hours use so far are beginning to loosen up and the sound is improving daily.

The sound is excellent, a good all-round sound not too much bass and not too much treble just well balanced.

If I have a gripe it is that the foam ear pads are now made from thicker foam reducing the size of the gap for ears, my ear lobes will not fit into the earpad. Saying that they are not uncomfortable to wear.

A much better set of earphones than the MDR-1R, I don't use the Iphone cable so cannot comment on that, the jack cable I do use works OK and does not kink or twist. So far really pleased with these headphones, I have never owned an expensive set of phones but these mid range Sony's are all I could ask for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointed, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sound quality is excellent, bass not over powering. Very comfortable to wear, light and they do fit over the ear, some that claim to do not. I was delighted with them at first but after a bit of wearing I notice a knock every time I moved my head, I traced it to the jack plug connection on the left ear piece, the connection is loose and any movement transfers a knocking noise through the ear piece which gets annoying after a while. The bracket that holds the right ear piece in place was a bit loose and also caused a knocking noise. Sitting at home in a chair without moving your head these would be excellent, but if you want to use them on the move and are a bit sensitive to unwanted noises, as I am, I would not recommend buying these.
I have since seen on a few blogs that the loose jack plug connection is a common complaint with these headphones, I have returned mine and ordered the Sony MDR-1A Prestige Overhead Headphones as I have read that they are an improvement on the MDR-1R as they have better sound and the loose cable connection has been rectified.

We have been to Florida three times before and found this book most useful, so for our return in 2015 we have bought the latest issue. It has so many helpful tips and descriptions, for a first time visitor it should be seriously considered. If like us you have visited before it still has some info that can prove invaluable at times.
