Ultimate Ears 300 Noise-Isolating Earphones by Logitech
3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 14 Mar 2012
These are very bassy, the external noise cancelling is pretty good and the lack of sound leakage is excellent. The ear loops also ensure (while running especially) that the 'phones won't pop out during activity. However, through regular use and reshaping the material on both ear loops has split - until I hear back from my seller I've had to use electrical tape to cover the small hook which has popped out of one of them so it doesn't catch on anything. This is a shame, and as it's happened on both loops I don't think it's a fluke.

I've no problem with diversions from the mainstream - indeed I am all for it - but venturing into the unknown with no clear outcome in mind is an activity… Read more

It's taken four years for this album to fully establish itself with me. I'm very glad I took my time before I wrote this review, because By the Way has made slow but assured progress to a select group of my favourite albums; older, familiar music has a way of etching itself upon a specific period in one's life, somehow making it more enduring.

It's not usually in my nature to overexpose the minutiae of particular songs in a review (as they can do the talking for themselves), but I reserve special praise for one. Perhaps if I thought about it for long enough I'd conclude that Dosed is among my twenty favourite songs of all time, but that's a very strong assumption for anyone to… Read more
