3.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT!!! ... ... ... except they REALLY aren't..., 10 Mar 2014
I Loved these Headphones (in Brown) before I bought them because:

1) they OOZE quality!
-The brown leather feels soft and silky
-They are ultra light, yet extremely sturdy

2) They look FANTASTIC!
-In Brown they look different than the standard silver/black.
-They are Bose!

3) They sound DIVINE!!!
-The sound is incredible quality, only BOSE!
-The Noise cancelling (in loud environments) is incredible!

4) the details...
-they come with a lovely and compact carry bag, perfect for traveling!
-mine inclduded two wires, one for apple products and the other for android.
-spare battery (you'd expect this after spending so much money)
-BOSE gift bag (only in shops, not amazon)

UNFORTUNATELY, I have sold mine because of what I believe are MAJOR flaws!

1) You can feel the noise-cancelling "vacuum" effect feel like it's sucking air out of your ears. I personally find this very uncomfortable, it makes my ears want to pop! This is especially the case in quiet environments.

2) you CANNOT use them unless noise-cancelling is on! This means that:
-Batteries will always be needed
-Batteries will inevitably be consumed much faster
-You will not hear if anyone is talking to you

So please be aware of this before you spend so much money - do not make the mistake I made, which was to ASSUMED that these would have the functionality of normal headphones but with noise-cancelling as an option to switch on and off.

IT ISN'T!

The switch is to switch on the headphones which always have noise-cancelling on.

Whereas I am sure that most people knew about this, I wish I had known before purchasing them.

ps - have been told that the new in-ear headphones have noise-cancelling as an option,

5.0 out of 5 stars So happy!, 7 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I fell in love with these when i saw them in a shop on the high street, but they cost almost £140.

I thought I'd have a look on Amazon, and BINGO!!! less than £90 which included postage, and a proper case!

The glasses are sturdy, top quality raybans made with very good material, and the lenses are top-notch.

The case is also Ray Ban, it is very protective and nice.

If you like this kind of eyewear design, don't think twice - purchase from here!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Basketball game, full stop!, 29 May 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: NBA 2K13 (PS3) (Video Game)
5 main reasons why NBA 2k13 is the best basketball game:

1) playability
2) game modes: career mode, progression, interviews, money, improving skillsgraphics
3) graphics
4) music
5) value!

In detail:

I love how easy it is to learn and get used to (even though there are some complicated moves!); how much FUN it is - especially against your friends, and how addictive it is!

In career mode you will continuously want to improve your player's attributes, but will only be able to do so by gaining money. You only really earn good money by training, completing challenges, and performing very well on game day!

The graphics are fantastic. I do not think I have ever seen a sports game that looked this real. The most impressive aspect of this is how the movement resembles the individual players' movement in real life. Facial expressions are very good too.

You can't be disappointed with the tunes of this game when Jay Z is the producer!

So, now that you know it's realistic, fun, addictive, has amazing graphics, and cracks out good tunes... and costs less than £25... what the hell are you waiting for!?


Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Onyx Black (will only fit Kindle Paperwhite)
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Onyx Black (will only fit Kindle Paperwhite)
Price: £29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy. Classy. Perfect., 28 May 2013
I have just bought a "Paperwhite" Kindle reader, and really recommend this kindle case to go with it.

In a few words, it is the high quality "you get what you pay for" mixed with the essential "excellent value for money".

Basically, it is ideal.

It looks smart, shows off a lovely smooth-metallic label in the front, and it wraps itself around your reader perfectly.

The case feels leathery and therefore not cheap, and the cover swiftly moves out of the way once you "open" the reader.

All you need to do is go to a high-street retailer or an airport shop to see other alternatives. They look flimsy, cheap, and really useless (I'm sorry but what is the point in having a plastic sleeve?).

Pay a tiny bit more for a product that is a LOT better, or in the words of this happy customer - a product that is perfect.


Slendertone Men System Plus Abs Garment
Slendertone Men System Plus Abs Garment

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good!, 11 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this a couple of years ago and still use the same patches. It really is as easy as it sounds, and it really does help those abs tone up. It does not work miracles, meaning you can't eat more and stop exercising because you've bought one of these!

Make sure you start off at lower levels and progress by one or two numbers every time, eventually increasing the duration as well. You really do start to feel it working when you do at least 40 mins at intensity 40+.

To be honest, using this, and seeing the results, has made me more conscious of the fact that I CAN get better abs, so I subconciously eat less (and better) and do more exercise to enhance the effects of this magnificent little piece of kit!! The feel good factor alone is noticeable, which is why i strongly recommend people to consider this.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a talent!!, 11 Dec 2012
This review is from: Lupercalia (Audio CD)
I have just come back from watching an acoustic Patrick Wolf Concert in Bristol and must write a review!!

The performance tonight was sublime, to the point he was forced back out after finishing as the crowd gave him an encore to remember!

As expected, the music was fantastic, but what I was most impressed with was the way he entertained us. It turns out patrick isn't only a fabulous musician, he's also a great entertainer too!

The most captivating thing about Patrick is his originality. Everything from what he wears to what he sings is entirely his own creation.

Patrick is incredibly (and almost annoyingly!) talented with most instruments (yesterday he played the guitar, piano, violin, and harp) but what makes him stand out most is his VOICE.

Patrick sings from the heart with a deep and powerful voice, and his lyrics reach out to most if not all audiences.

His band are great too, especially the violinist, with whom he makes an incredible duo!

I strongly recommend this album as it is more uplifting than his previous work, and most importantly - it has the song TIME OF MY LIFE which is my favourite. I beg that you listen to it and the lyrics!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastico!, 9 Oct 2012
This review is from: Intouchables (Audio CD)
***Note: Einaudi's "Islands - Essential Einaudi" is on sale at Amazon for six pounds cheaper than this album. For me, it is a no brainer: buy that CD, and buy the "Intouchables" film, which is epic!***

Many can play the Piano, just not like Einaudi. Ludovico is a romantic, an artist, a genius.

Einaudi manages to communicate from his Heart through his fingertips to make the beautiful instrument that is the Piano sound like this.

The other night, whilst watching the film "The Intouchables" (a must-watch!) I heard the magical sound of the Piano and saw it was Ludovico's work. When I arrived home I searched for his songs. I could not detach myself from his music, so it is entirely Ludovico's fault that i stayed up til 3am!

So far, I've only listened to about 20 of his songs, and Nuvole Bianche (White Clouds) and Una Mattina (One Morning) are the most touching songs.

I won't waste your time. Just listen to those two songs (Divenire and Earth Prelude are also fantastic!) and enjoy this Artist's amazing work. =)

ps - if you think the music is good, you'll LOVE the film!


Fossil FS4532 Mens Black Dial Silver Bracelet Watch

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal, 4 Oct 2012
Fossil is a renowned brand that has been in the watch industry much longer than other competitors that now charge more than double for less stylish and less reliable watches.

Style, elegance, and affordability don't usually come together in the world of watches. It does in the case of Fossil FS4532. Its size makes it a very representing watch, with the shiny strap and black face creating a perfect balance of 'reserved bling'. The weight reassures you that the materials are not cheap, and yet it is beautifully designed so that it doesn't feel bulky.

This is the perfect solution if you do not believe in spending a hefty sum of money on top-end watches, but do not wish to be replacing your watch every 3 months because of the poor quality on a cheap watch.

This really is a good watch to own, and in my opinion - the best value for money out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see-must have!, 20 Aug 2012
This review is from: Untouchable [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Apologies for sounding excited, but I have been waiting for this inspiring film to be released in English since I saw it last Christmas!

A paralysed aristocratic widower (Francois Cluzet) and a jobless immigrant too familiar with the criminal life of the French urban suburbs (Omar Sy) meet during Cluzet's search for an assistant capable of looking after him in such demanding state.

The demanding role is ideal for the underqualified and non-educated Sy, who's only interest is to prove he had a job interview to continue receiving his unemployment benefits. What he doesn't know, is that the man in the wheelchair is much more cunning than he looks.

In this tale of seemingly tragic circumstances, a very unusual friendship is born. The journey through this heart-warming film about true friendship, determination, and courage is accompanied by the powerful music of the talented Ludovico Einaudi. This film will make you smile, twitch, laugh, sob, reflect, and wonder at how everything is possible, especially when you least expect it.

What makes this film truly enjoyable is the fact it is based on a true story.

Whilst I hope (and know) that you will enjoy this film, may I strongly recommend listening to Ludovico Einaudi's "Una Mattina", "I Giorni", and "Earth Prelude" to name a few.

NOTE:
to date, no Intouchables DVD has been released with English subtitles in Region 2 (PAL) DVD. The US rights holder for the film should be releasing a Region 1 DVD but you would need to buy a DVD player that can play Region 1 and a TV that can handle NTSC.
