2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 13 May 2014
For the money I was expecting amazing sound quality - but it is merely OK.

However the main flaw with this size is the fit - as each ear bud is quite heavy compared to any other earphones I've used before they are continually falling out my ears, despite trying various sized fits.

I spend about 50% of the time listening to music and 50% of the time putting them back in my ears - I've never had this issue with any set in my life, including many cheaper sets.

Overall I could not recommend this set.

Consider Phlebas: A Culture Novel (The Culture) by Iain M. Banks
This is only the second Banks book I've read after 'The Player of Games' but this is equal or better than that masterpiece.

The characters are superbly realised, imagery fantastically imagined and story utterly addictive. And despite how long ago this book was written the science still feels fresh and exciting - as if it was written yesterday. The end was great, if a little sad. But it completed the circle of what the story is about - fighting for what one considers important.

I can't recommend this book enough.
