Creative HS-660i2 Noise-isolating in-ear Headset w&hellip by Creative
I wanted a practical headset for the iPhone that I could use on my travels. The Apple headset supplied with the iPhone just doesn't work for me, and refuses to stay put in my ear no matter how careful I am. I've had the same pair of in-ear Creative headphones for 10+ years (still going strong), so I decided a Creative headset would be a good option, despite the somewhat mixed experiences and feedback here.

I first came across this EcoClassic range at a holiday rental in Scotland of all places. The only reading lamp in the lounge with a regular bulb in it had such a nice tone that I was compelled to inspect the bulb and see what it was!

So for anyone that is light sensitive and appreciates the subtleties and hues that different bulbs have to offer, I would definitely recommend this Philips range. I have since returned home and "upgraded" my own lounge lamps to the EcoClassic and the difference is amazing.

These are what I would consider to be next generation bulbs. The light is still fantastic, and they use only about two thirds the energy of a conventional… Read more
