Sennheiser PMX60 Open Dynamic Neckband On-Ear Head&hellip by Sennheiser

Buying headphones is all about compromise. Of course, you can spend hundreds of pounds on audiophile quality gear, but would you regularly wear these out and about? Would you really want to go about sweating into your prized Grados?

On the other hand, most of us carry portable devices that are capable of delivering fantastic quality sound, if the output permits. If you are still using the earphones that came with your iDevice - do yourself a favor and get an upgrade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy, 20 Nov 2012
This was a great buy - this seems to be able to play anything you throw at it.

So far, I've tried:
- A region 1 DVD (movie): played perfectly, with a great picture for an old DVD
- A region 2 DVD (live music): Again, no problems, great picture and sound
- BD - Great picture. Slight criticism: The unit is slightly noisy while loading a disc, but the noise does not persist during playback.

- MP3 files on a USB drive - Great feature - navigation is quick and the sound is decent.

I have not tried the internet features, so I cannot… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Average, 17 Jun 2005
As a piece of fiction, this book was quite average. I noticed on the author's information page the front cover that Brown 'taught English and creative writing.' This was quite evident throughout the book. The plot and characters felt extremely 'textbook', as if the author was using a standard formula to write an action adventure. Overall, it wasn't as bad as some reviewers made it out to be. It's quite tense, and begs to be read in a short space of time.
However, throughout the book, Brown made a number of not-so-subtle hints to this being more than a holiday thriller, clearly the author had some sort of personal message about the Catholic faith. Featuring self-torture and monks… Read more
