5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, comfortable headphones, 18 Jan. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Simply the best headphones I have ever owned (and I've owned lots over the years). My last Sony headphones were Sony MDR-7506, which have lasted for years, but are now starting to fall apart, so I was glad to get the better quality MDR-1R.

The Sony MDR1R headphones are extremely comfortable, even for someone like me, who has a larger than normal head (it's all the brains, you see). They are also very light, and are well padded (even the headband), so are comfortable to wear for extended periods.

They sound great - with a good bass response, and look stylish too. I've used them with the iPhone 5 and the inline controls work well.

The only negative point for me is that the lead is very short, another 6 inches would have made it the perfect length, but don't let this put you off buying.

I use my headphones for listening to music and making music, and the Sony MDR-1R are great for recording, as there is little sound leakage plus they can be worn comfortably for hours, which is a necessity when recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual but effective product, 13 Dec. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Ultrasport thermal sole's are a great way to keep your tootsies warm when wondering round the frozen food aisles of your local supermarket, or when going for a long walk in this freezing weather.

They can be cut to size, and when fitted with (external) batteries, strapped to your ankles, and away you go, warm feet. Note I said warm feet - the heat produced is not hot, it's a comfortable, safe feeling warmth, and if you suffer from cramp due to getting cold feet, these thermal soles may help you.


Remington F7800 Titanium-X Dual Foil Shaver
Remington F7800 Titanium-X Dual Foil Shaver
Offered by Surelifehealth
Price: £39.74

4.0 out of 5 stars Reliable, solid razor, 13 Dec. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Remington F7800 Dual Foil Shaver gives a clean, fresh shave, and the pivoting head does make it easy to move around your face, and get up close to your tucked away facial crevices!

The head is easy to wash - just rinse it under the tap (but don't get the whole razor wet). Being a Remington razor, you know you are getting a quality product, and this does not disappoint. The F7800 seems to hold it's charge longer than other electric razors I have owned in recent years, and you can easily tell how long to go till the next charge is needed as the battery indicator is displayed whenever the razor is active.

So a solid, reliable, quality razor from Remington.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, 13 Dec. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This "Rocket Fuel" coffee tastes a little stronger than usual coffee brands and is slightly bitter, but it is not unpleasant.

The coffee claim's to give the drinker energy ("hits fast and lasts"). I didn't feel any more energetic after drinking it, but maybe it takes several cups to get the "instant kick" if you are a hardened coffee drinker like myself.

So nothing special, back to my regular coffee I think.


Breville Eco Control VIN245 Steam Iron with Filling Dock - 2,800 Watts
Breville Eco Control VIN245 Steam Iron with Filling Dock - 2,800 Watts

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks like the titanic - but does the job!, 13 Dec. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Breville iron is easy to use. You can fill the iron with tap water in one of two ways, via the filling port on the top of the iron or via the filling docking station that the iron sits on.

The advantage of the docking station being that you don't have to keep filling the water up. To adjust the temperature you just use the minus or plus dial until the cursor sits opposite the type of fabric that you are ironing.

An alarm and flashing thermometer tells/shows you when the iron has reached the required temperature.

You can set the amount of steam that the iron emits, but the steam function is only activated at the higher temperatures for instance when using the cotton, denim or linen settings and when you grip the handle.

Some of the other features include an anti-scale filter to reduce the build up of lime-scale and a self clean button which sounds useful but I am pretty certain is never used by anyone apart from those two women who present how clean is your house.

The iron automatically turns itself off if you do not use the iron for 10 minutes. Moving/using the iron will automatically restart the iron.

The only feature that I had difficulty with was the filling station which was easy to fill but had to be placed in exactly the correct position to pump water from the docking station to the irons water tank.


VIBE Slick Zip Headphones - Red
VIBE Slick Zip Headphones - Red

2.0 out of 5 stars heavy stuff, 13 Dec. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Vibe Slick Zip headphones are certainly unique. The zip ensures that you never have to worry about tangled headphones ever again. That's the plus in the design. The negative with the zip design is the weight. Often, if I was listening whilst on the move, the extra weight of the zip would often result in the headphones falling out of my ears. Which is not ideal on busy public transport. The way round this is to wrap them around your neck, so the weight doesn't pull the earphones out, but this is awkward and means the zip rubs on your neck.

So when listening at home, they are fine - the headphones fit well, the sound is average to good - with a nice (not spectacular) bass sound. Not the best sounding headphones I have had in this price range but by no means the worst. But the weight is a real issue for me, and in the end I found them too impractical and have given up on them.


Belkin Candy Case / View Case for iPhone 5 and 5s in Clear/Black
Belkin Candy Case / View Case for iPhone 5 and 5s in Clear/Black

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 13 Dec. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The back of the Belkin TPU case is clear, so you can see the back of your lovely new iPhone 5.

It's also easy to fit, and makes the iPhone easy to hold, and less likely to slip when you are out and about.

It's a touch to expensive in my view but it does the job - protecting your iPhone 5, whilst allowing easy access to all the phones controls and camera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well priced, durable case, 13 Dec. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The case is a snug fit on the iPhone 5, and protects the phone in everyday use. The micro-fibre interior also protects the screen from day-to-day scratches.

The only negative is regarding the camera access - the case needs to be folded down, but whenever I've taken a picture, you are very aware that you need to push the case or it gets in the way of the shot (which it has done a few times). But I think that would be an issue with any folding cover like this, so it just takes a while tog et used to it.

So it's a reasonably priced, good quality case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Elijah Wood version..., 23 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
...That aired on BBC recently, but the original Australian series. The comedy is bawdy but it's quite dark and well-observed humour.

Jason Gann as Wilfred the man-dog (in the US and Australian series) is the highlight of the show.

The originals are usually best, so I'm tempted to see how the story pans out in the second ( and final) Australian season.

Leitz Soft Click A4 Presentation Ring Binder 30 mm- White
Leitz Soft Click A4 Presentation Ring Binder 30 mm- White
Price: £13.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Very expensive binder, 23 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This four ring binder is quite sturdy, feels solid and has a unique opening mechanism, which opens the rings quietly,Living up to the "soft click" billing so I'm sure it will get plenty of use.

It also has space for business cards too, but my over-riding feeling about the binder is the cost. I'm not sure if the added quality justifies the price. If it comes down in price, it's a reliable ring binder. But at the moment, it's just too expensive.
