2.0 out of 5 stars Too bassy for my taste, 31 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these as a straight replacement for the same pair of headphones that I'd enjoyed for a couple of years (they eventually broke after the headphone jack developed a fault that was due to me throwing in to the bottom of my bag or pocket every day).

I loved the old pair of headphones, mainly because of the excellent sound quality for the price. They had a rich, detailed sound and also blocked out a lot of the background noise on the train.

These new ones are a disappointment, though. For me, the bass just dominates everything. The mid-tones and treble are swamped and sound muffled or muddy. I don't find the sound pleasant at all.

On the positive side, these feel well built and the cable is more tangle resistant than the one on the old headphones.

Overall, not impressed with these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide that helps you to think more positively, 24 Feb. 2016
This is a great little book. It is practical, well written and offers easy-to-follow advice on how to overcome all sorts of negative thinking.

The author covers a lot of ground, giving tips to cope with everything from self-critical thoughts and distorted thinking to anxiety, depression and assertiveness. It's all done in a sympathetic and humane style.

As the title suggests, the aim is to take negative thoughts and habits and to “rethink” them – to examine them in a new way and try to take the power out of them.

For example, it suggests ways to avoid “all or nothing thinking”, where you view a situation as either very good or bad, with no room for the middle ground. Overgeneralisation is another pitfall – you form a general conclusion based on a single incident. “Nothing ever works out for me…” etc.
Others include jumping to conclusions about what others are thinking, discounting the positive or seeing the world in terms of “should…” or “must…”.

The book suggests ways to relax and get your thoughts into perspective. These include simple breathing exercises, focusing on the present moment and allowing negative thoughts to come and go.

The advice is clear and concise, without being simplistic. This book eschews the vague language and ideas sometimes found in “new age” self-help books. It’s full of examples of problems from everyday life and gives step-by-step tips on how to overcome perceived obstacles.

The book is divided into three parts: Be Your Own Best Friend; Relax and Heal Negative Emotions and Change Your Behaviour. The first part looks at the negative things people often say to themselves and gives advice on overcoming worry and accepting yourself. The second deals with anxiety, depression, anger and jealousy. The final section explores ways to be more assertive, how to communicate effectively and how to stop smoking or lose weight.

This is a very useful companion – small enough to carry around and practical enough for it to be effective. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work via Fire Stick or new Sony TV, 13 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All 4 (App)
Channel 4 is a publicly funded channel and yet they haven't made much effort to allow people to watch shows on their TV using this app.

I can't get this to work with my Amazon Fire Stick (the original one without voice control). The stick is less than six months old.

I've also got a new Sony TV, bought in August 2015 and that can't get the All4 app either.

Finally, the app blocks me from sending content from my phone to the TV (MiraCast or screen mirroring).

Disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Protects paper rail ticket, 24 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My monthly paper rail ticket with a magnetic strip kept failing.

The railway staff told me that my mobile or a magnet on my laptop bag was wiping the magnetic strip, which meant the ticket would not open the barriers.

Since I started keeping the ticket in this plastic cover, I haven't had one failed ticket.

It's a tight fit, but it tapers at the top which allows you to grab the top of the ticket.

Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too short - beware, 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware - this was sold as a 3 metre long cable, but is nowhere near that.

It's more like 0.4m coiled and 0.7m stretched out.

Also, you wouldn't want to stretch it out completely straight because it would look odd.

It's frustrating to buy things online that are described.

I needed a longer cord to allow me to sit in a chair next to a table where the phone sits.

This does not do the job.

Cheap but not cheerful.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is sturdy and looks well-made.

Unfortunately, I put it in the dishwasher and the handle cracked in three places.

It probably advises against this in the instructions, but I didn't read them.

Apart from that, it's a stylish product that does the job well and feels solid in the hand.

Cheap and nasty product.

The wig is just a jumble of black nylon with no shape whatsoever.

The moustache's glue was dried up when it arrived. This meant that it wouldn't stick on properly.
