If the Pound Shop sell alternatives, risk it, or spend more on a decent pair
on 24 December 2014
For quite a few years now you've never been able to trust a brand name and the general rule is - try it out before buying. Now it seems you can't even trust a brand model. I had an old set of headphones for years with the same model number and they were fine until one of the speakers went. These new ones, despite being labelled as exactly the same model (HA-F10C) are absolutely not of the same quality as far as sound is concerned.
The sound quality is weak with poor bunching of tones, and timbres are blurred, if you can distinguish them at all. The worst thing of all is the piercing mid-treble range which really could damage your hearing.
My advice is, it's better to risk getting a super cheap pair than these.
