MSA Sordin Supreme Pro X with Leather Headband and Aux Input.

Price: £174.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy without being heavy., 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Build quality of these ear defenders is excellent. They are very robust with metal hinges and battery cover without being too heavy. Plenty of size adjustment available for placing over hat. More adjustment is available but restricted by the cable length on my set. When initially tested in a quiet environment the abient sound quality was surprisingly good. Natural level sits somewere between level 1 and 2 with 3 and 4 giving lots of amplification. Could be useful in situations where enhanced hearing is useful such as wildfowling. When took them to the clay target shooting range I was a little dissapointed. They certainly cut out load noises but seem to do so to the extreme. This means that holding a conversation with alot of shots going off in the background can be difficult. They are much faster to recover than other defenders I have tried but I still missed a few "pull" calls when other shots were being fired. The storage is not great, other defenders allow the ear pieces to be folded up inside the headband but these do not. The instructions advise not to store with the earpieces pressed together, which is ambiguous because this is how the product is packaged.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Compatible with iOS 7, 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works intermittently. iOS 7 will regonise the cable as not genuine Apple after a couple of days and thereafter refuse to connect or charge using it. Connecting a genuine Apple cable will fool the system to accept it again for a couple of days. This is probably because the cable does not use an Apple licensed chip in the lightening connector. If you are still using iOS 6 it will work fine. The quality of this product is excellent, it is a shame that Apple have deliberatly prevented it working.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uncertified cable will not work with IoS 7., 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
iOS7 identifies the cable as non-certified and does not charge or connect to PC. Junk, but not enough money to be worth returning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with this purchase, 6 Jan 2014
I have owned one of these for a month now. This kettle is very space conservative, stylish and functional. If you are looking for a small kettle then I recommend it. It handles small and large volumes of water easily and without fuss. One ocmplaint is that it tends to over boil, i.e. continues to boil longer than necessary before cuttting out, so wastes a bit of power. At £69 I think it is over priced so have scored 4/5. If it gets below £50 then it would be good value and score 5/5.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loud but low quality sound, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have 50% hearing loss in one ear caused by shooting. This device is adequate for me at setting 1 and quite painful by 3. The frequency "filter" does not capture all voices so deeper male speech is more difficult to hear with the device in use. The volume is much louder when fully charged and decreases as the battery runs out, this is a big problem because it must be removed to change volume. I have made a custom mould (see custom ear plugs and you tube) and sucessfully used the device in a shooting ear defender to allow normal noise and block loud gunshots noise. Do this at your own risk.

The device protrudes quite a way from my ear and is very obvious.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very dissapointed, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking forward to some AVICII inspired tracks but was very dissapointed. The album is described as "Two gigantic discs packed with huge hits put flawlessly together by two of the world's finest." which is quite untrue. There are a few hits interspersed between many unknown tracks wich very heavy basslines. This has resulted in an album which dramatically changes music style from track to track and results in no flow from one to the next. More like a random mix of tracks we could get for cheap spattered with a few hits. This is obviously my opinion, you may well like it.


Veho VDC-001-Lite USB Powered Desktop Fan with Safety Blades
Veho VDC-001-Lite USB Powered Desktop Fan with Safety Blades

1.0 out of 5 stars Bzzzzz - Fizz - Pop, 20 Aug 2013
Looks well made but further investigation showed otherwise. The blades were out of balance and the motor speed is very fast resulting in an insect like noisy buzz. My colleagues complained from across the room. The fan blades on mine were attached back to front, when the fromt is removed and the blades turned around they fit much better and blow more air. (A fan is more effective if the leading edge is straight.) The fan lasted about 4 months before the motor burned out. The unit uses a cheap brushed DC motor and will not stand up to prolonged use.

Bisley 12g 12 bore Shotgun Cleaning Kit
Bisley 12g 12 bore Shotgun Cleaning Kit
Offered by Savage Island
Price: £12.95

2.0 out of 5 stars OK for short barrels., 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The rod is relativly well made and the brass is recessed enough to prevent contact with the barrels.

From base of handle to base of brush is 29 inches which will make this rod interesting to use for 28 inch barrels and hazardous to the fingers for anything longer.

The "presentation portable" box is completly useless for either presenting or transporting. The lid is loose on the base meaning that tape would need to be wrapped aorund it to prevent the parts falling out in your bag.

The only evidence this is a Bisley branded product is a barcode sticker covering a "Made In Italy" sticker. Draw your own conclusions.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but has some issues., 19 July 2013
Quality is reasonable, phone held tightly and screen protected but does not provide all round protection against drops. Grip at top contains a magnet which interferes with the phones compass. The grip is also a bit too tight and causes a screen protector to bubble up. The flap is pulled about 5mm over the top of the case making it look untidy. Only thin earphone plugs can be used, I had to cut some plastic away to use a larger plug.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says with some minor niggles, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased to power my iPad mini over long flights. This is a good chunky piece of kit but has a few minor issues:

1. The description is slightly misleading. Each USB port has a different power rating, 0.5A, 1A, 1.3A and 2.1A. the ratings are printed on the back of the device. This is not a problem for low power equipment such as a phone but prevents two pads from being charged simultaneously.
2. The bag supplied is not big enough to hold the charger and not secure enough to keep all the tiny charger adapters.
3. No iPad/iPhone 4 (lightning) cable is provided despite the description including iPad and iPhone 5. You will need to supply your own USB to lightning cable.
4. No mains charger is supplied. You will need a charger with a micro USB plug or USB socket which is sufficiently powerful to charge the unit in a reasonable amount of time. 2 Amps is recommended. An iPad USB mains plug should be adequate. Phone chargers may overheat if used.
5. The instructions advise against charging from a PC USB socket due to the extended high power draw.
