RHA MA450i Noise Isolating In Ear Earphones with Remote and Microphone - White Aluminium
RHA MA450i Noise Isolating In Ear Earphones with Remote and Microphone - White Aluminium

4.0 out of 5 stars Improved, 14 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well i bought these in May; i found they tangled at the drop of a hat and the noise of the cable against your clothing when walking was awful. To resolve these issues i always wrapped the cable carefully around my MP3 and used a small hair clip to attach the lose cable to my clothing - not idea at this price - solving both issues. Two months on i was having issues when used on my iphone, the volume went up and down randomly and the right ear lost sound, complete pain proving all the bad reviews right.

Turn up for the books and a big pat on the back for Amazon; Thursday i emailed to say they had gone faulty and what should i do, this morning (Saturday) new headphones!!! It gets better, on opening the pack, two new design features 1. purpose designed clip which you attached to the cables then to your clothing and the plug now fits flush against phone or MP3 player making it easier to wrap cables around the main body of the unit. First outing today and everything is so much better, had to turn the volume down as the clip means no cable noise, the cable wraps much neater around the body and the clip holds the head phones. All in all a BIG thanks to Amazon for their amazingly speedy resolution of the problem and well done RHA for taking notice of customer feedback.

Very strange shape and not a good quality item - not worth returning as the postage would cost more than the item is worth.

The real deal, easy to fit, does the job - does what it says on the pack - what more could you want.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as they used to be., 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used a Halti for years but this one is not as good as the old one - the nose strap is now padded which is good - but it is now a 'one piece item' where as previously the different straps joined by chrome rings which allowed for different shaped faces and nose lengths. I would also say comment that the adjustment buckles keep sliding back to the largest setting not a problem for me as my dog doesn't 'back out' of his collar but would be an issue if you have a dog that does reverse!! All in all still the best choice for my dog but not as good as they used to be!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality and overpriced, 5 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I need this book as it is part of three units i am covering at university this year. The content is self explanatory - various methods to be used and combined when researching with young children - the quality of the book is abysmal. It arrived yesterday and the cover is so thin it is already bent and curling so if you want quality dont buy this paperback. Add to that it is also seriously overpriced so if you need this book but are not in a rush i would try for a second hand copy unfortunately i needed it this week!!


Roberts Robi DAB/FM Radio for iPod - Black
Roberts Robi DAB/FM Radio for iPod - Black

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed, 27 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this item at the beginning of January to use with an ipod touch. None of the feedback appeared to show compatibility problems with this ipod. When it arrived i was quite pleased with the ease of set-up and used it straight away. Once i have finished using it i would turn it off but the next day i had a flat ipod, this went on for several days until i placed my ipod where i could watch it. The Robi randomly turns it self back on!! So i contacted Roberts - i dont expect Amazon to be technical experts with everything they sell - Roberts finally answered my email to advise that the Robi is totally compatible with the ipod touch. I decided it must be something to do with the set-up of the ipod so i returned everything back to default, still no better, and i found i couldn't turn the ipod or radio on as i should be able to from the Robi. I again contacted Roberts who after a week came back to me to say both of the issues i mention are a compatibly issue and it is an Apple problem not a Roberts!!!

Have to say i am not happy, this item doesn't do the job it was sold to do, and how can they blame Apple? Roberts designed this product for the ipod. Feeling a bit let down now but can i return it to the seller after 3 weeks? If i do return it what do i buy in its place? Really fed up as all i wanted was a radio to listen to.

Several months on i can now honestly say this kit is total rubbish. Like a lot of people i bought Roberts because of its reputation for build quality and reliability. The connector unplugs itself randomly from the ipod, it flattens your battery in an hour or so on DAB, the clothing clip is useless, the cable is too rigid - i could go on but whats the point - dont buy, waste of money, waste of time and an all round disappointment!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Adult Book with Nice Ideas., 19 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas Papercrafts (Paperback)
I bought this book just to get some ideas for projects at school. Its a nice book with good pictures and we really like the money wallets, the bunting and the hanging tree decorations. Most of the projects are only suitable for adults so if you are looking for a book to make things as a family this is not the book for you. This book does include some very useful templates in particular a dove, which we have used several times for various decorations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Ideas, 19 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some nice ideas, which you can make with older children i.e. 8+, I did a couple of the projects including the Christmas Trees that turned out really well. We did make some changes to the design including setting a cane in plaster as opposed to the drinking straw recommended by the author and we glued the top of the trees to the sticks. I thought the book was a bit thin and some of the ideas repeated themselves for example several similar candles and 2 or 3 different bag projects. This type of book gives you the basics then you can adapt the project to suit your own requirements. I have other books by this other including cake decorating and she is very clear with her instructions.

These earrings are really sparkly and have good size diamonds. Don't think you could better these for the price i paid. Highly recommend.
