4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says, 1 Feb. 2014

Only had it a month, but it's been flawless so far. Powered both my iPhone and a Garmin Nuvi w/o problems. Seems solidly made. Lets hope it continues

1.0 out of 5 stars Earphones for the Dubstep generation (or the deaf?), 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these 6 months ago based on reviews here and positive comment from a colleague. Lost them about a month ago and frankly don't miss them - absolutely awful.

They exhibit the classic 'V' shaped response many of these earbuds seem to go for - way hyped bloated bass, splashy treble and no midrange.
I tried 'burning' them in for a few days (apparently you should do this as all modern audio equipment sounds rubbish until you have - ???). Heard no improvement, tried all 3 earbud sizes - they either fell out or all I could here was bass. Ended up trying to find an extreme EQ setting on the iPod to compensate.

Given that I listen to a lot of speech podcasts the lack of midrange was a big problem. Music just sounded awful - bass, BASS and even MORE BASS - totally swamping the rest of the music, Treble was piercing, splashy and sibilant - everyone had a lisp and cymbals just sounded like white noise.

Really quite pleased I lost them, gave me an excuse to buy something else. (MEElectronics M9 - so far v impessed)

Can't understand the high rating at all - but then most people it seems think MP3s on their mobile phones are the height of sound quality these days. WTHDIK?

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly dreadful, 31 July 2011
This review is from: Real Life Is No Cool (Audio CD)
Sorry, I'm really going to have to disagree with the other reviews here (the 1st appears professionally written).
I'd bought Lindstrom's 1st album based on reviews, like the other reviewer states too few ideas stretched over 55m - would have made a great 3 track EP at about 1/2 the length. Caught Lindstrom DJing at the Big Chill a couple of years ago and was impressed. Decided to give him a 2nd chance, really wished I hadn't bothered though.

I can just about remember 1 'song' after 1/2 a dozen listens. Some songs start with random bits of vocals cut up re-pitched and generally messed with - if you like the idea of listening to somebody sounding like they're just trying out Ableton Live it's great. Even the more conventional songs are pretty forgettable, too often descending into aimless riffing. According to the initial review they worked independently, certainly sounds like it, often seems little connection between vocals and the rest.

Certainly has an 80's vibe but most of this has been done before, and better. Maybe I've just really left the 80's behind, hence my major dislike. Definitely the worst £11 I've spent this year.
