4.0 out of 5 stars Beats Bose hands down, 22 Jan 2013
Honestly, when it comes to comfort, build quality and noise cancellation - there isn't that much between the Bose QC15 headphones (Colleague who sits next to me has them) in terms of effectiveness.

Where these cans set themselves apart is in flexibility and sounds quality.

Firstly, you have 3 cancellation modes which is a nice touch, I won't go through them as its in the product description, suffice to say they are pretty good and do what they say on the tin. (As with all NC cans, they 95% stat is nonsense of course!)

Secondly, there is a passive mode - ie they still work as headphones when not turned on/battery dead. Also, when off there is still the noise… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine with one niggle, 18 Nov 2012
OK, so not much to say about this - its a windstopper thingy for your head. It's by Gore so the material is their windstopper stuff which is breathable and stops the wind - see what they did with the name there?

The ear cover bits are well positioned and for my head, it's great. So, why only 4 stars? Well, its a little pricey for what it is I suppose but my only real issue was that they put a hulking great label right on the left ear cover. You pretty much have to cut it out because you can't wear it with it in there. WOuld have made more sense to print it directly onto the material, like everything else!

I watched the show and made a fair few of the freely available recipes - this coincided with a decision I had already made to shed a few pounds. By not just following the recipes but applying the cooking advice to my own recipes I've been able to eat well, not go hungry but still keep my daily calorie count around the 1500-1600 mark as a maximum, usually its closer to 1400.

I'm not as religious with it as the HBs so my weight loss is a gradual affair but I don't feel like I am on a diet and have still managed 14lbs in about 6 weeks (I also cycle regularly), I am just not over eating and making sure the things I do eat are cannily made. And the most important thing is that the… Read more
