PROS

+ Boils water fast
+ Can choose temperature
+ Not too loud

CONS

- Button panel and handle feels cheap

Being able to choose your own temperature is a great feature to have if yoi are like me and don't have much time in the morning, you might not have enough time to wait for a cup of tea to cool down to a reasonable temperature before drinking, with this kettle simply boil to 90 instead and the drink is ready to be drunk instantly. Boiling to 70 gives hot water which I deem suitable enough to use in a hot water bottle and should (hopefully) minimize risk of injury. The kettle has a nice metal body, but the handle feels somewhat cheap, especially the button panel, which when pressed all the buttons move with it. As with many modern kettles, is powered from the base, allowing the kettle to be removed for easy filling.

Looks well made but after just a few uses had crackling sound in left ear. Disappointing.

Wonky Touchpad. Non-responsive and has a life of its own. Tried reinstalling drivers but still the same. Frustrating to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... now and have to say that I am really glad I bought these, 1 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have owned these for a while now and have to say that I am really glad I bought these.

PROS
+ Sound Quality
= It's really hard to believe that they sound as good as they do for the price that they cost (I had a pair of Audio Technica Sonicfuel headphones prior to this which broke, but these sound far superior). The Acoustics in particular are a big plus point, sounds appear to be coming from all directions crystal clear. Have had to remove them a couple of times in public as I was convinced the sounds were actually coming from behind me! :)

+ Detachable Cable
= Again difficult to believe that headphones in this price bracket are able to offer a feature like this. Most headphones which have a detachable cable are priced around £50 or more. Having to throw away a pair of Headphones because of a faulty cable is never fun and having the option to attach a different cable will hopefully help increase the lifespan of your headphones. The headphones come with a long and thick cable over 3 meters and a thin cable which is about a meter. I use the long one on my PC and the short one for listening to music on my phone.

+ Swivel
= Okay so they don't spin the full 180 degrees like a set of professional headphones do, but they do swivel 90 degrees, which is a plus point in my books. Keep in mind they are less than £20 and similarly priced headphones often don't have this (Sennheiser HD 201's also sound great but don't have much in the way of swivel for example). These headphones also fold into themselves for easy transport which is great.

+Durability
= Despite being made out of cheap plastic, these things can really take a beating. I've dropped mine down a flight of stairs and watched agonizingly as they tumbled their way down banging against every step on the way. I was sure they would be broken but worked fine afterwards with no sign of damage. I've also been caught in a downpour with them on and had them soaked through but they still worked just fine afterwards.

CONS

- Appearance
= If you are looking for a set of trendy, fashionable headphones then you are looking at the wrong page. These don't just look cheap, but feel cheap also. This sort of thing doesn't concern me that much and I will gladly wear these in public, but I can imagine others would feel differently.

- Packaging + Accessories
= Hard to criticize this point too much. The cables are great, although I have my doubts that the shorter one will last me that long. The packaging has been done on the cheap, and I think they made the right decision. I don't want to be wasting my money on something that will likely end up in the recycling bin. My main grip is the lack of a bag to keep my headphones in. Luckily I have one from a previous brand I owned so just use that one instead.

OVERALL : I have tried a few pairs in the budget price region, and these ones do the best job of emulating professional headphones out of them all. Would definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but effective., 5 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros

- Washes Clothes adequately.
- Cheap

Cons

- The instructions are written in poor english and are inconsistent with the product.
- The plastic drum sometimes comes loose mid-wash, despite securing it correctly.
- The drain pipe is too short meaning water may spill over when filled high.
- As the drain pipe is too short, it can be difficult to find a place to drain it.
- Slight leakage due to manufacturing imperfections.

It might look like I dislike this product given all the gripes I have with it. Let me assure you that for the price I feel that the product is reasonable enough. My main gripe with the product is that the drum will sometimes come loose mid-wash, when this happens the drum will continue spinning around and around, only this time it will be banging against the sides of the machine! I'm not sure how long the product will last unless I can secure it to the machine properly. Other than this my complaints are minor ones. Spillage is minimal and the manual can be understood with some careful reading and common sense.

TIP
Fill the machine slightly under the High mark to avoid excessive spillage.

I would give this product 3.5 stars normally, but as amazon doesn't allow this I have given a generous 4 stars. YW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Work in a Kitchen as a chef and seeing as i was going through work trainers every 6 months or so thought id give these a try. When i first bought them really thought i made a mistake as they were uncomfortable to wear and felt like they were going to fall off. Once i got used to them though i found them to be really comfy and really practical. If they get dirty they can be washed off easily with just paper and maybe water. After well over 6 months they look the same as when i first purchased them. They are also easy to slip on and off. Ended up buying a similar pair for daily use and am also happy with the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small Compact Very Useful, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These leaves are amazing. A t-shirt or a pair of boxers would probabily require a single leaf but a larger load and i think 4-5 leaves are required. Dont be silly and take 4 weeks worth of clothes with you while backpacking around europe. Take 5 days worths and wash them out at the hotel and hang them up. The pack is really small (think the size of a pack of tic tacs) and fits nicely into my toiletries bag!

These seem about the same as other "cheap" brake pads in fair weather but in wet conditions truly come out into their own as they are excellent and seem to perform (almost) the same as it was dry.

Unfortunately recieved red ones and they didnt have the white ones left in stock. Was offered a full refund with collection which was quite good but really wanted to get out on my bike and the red ones looked quite good anyway so decided to stick with them.
