I wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. Interesting and varied album. Listen out for "Lullaby".

5.0 out of 5 stars New version better than original., 18 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Second pair to replace missing originals. These perform far more consistently than the originals and give a good well balanced and clear sound on a wide range of music. If they are more consistent than earlier 350s then they will wipe the floor with the competition. If not then the Soundmagic E10s are a safer bet (definitely not the over-rated Sennheiser CX-300s which are murky by comparison). I still suspect that RHA use two suppliers, and one provides headphones with a bit of a brittle edge, the other gets them spot on!

These seem to work well and are excellent value. Can be a bit messy to install but no problems with prints.


The Beethoven Journey - Piano Concerto No.5 "Emperor" & Choral Fantasy
The Beethoven Journey - Piano Concerto No.5 "Emperor" & Choral Fantasy
Price: £6.56

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate performances & recordings., 17 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A first rate interpretation and performance of the piano concerto & well recorded. The "Choral Fantasy" has a misleading title but an interesting filler. Has some familiar tunes within it. Two first rate recordings and well worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 17 Aug. 2015

Bought it for "Rough Music" which I enjoyed (it is a grower). Last track interesting. The jury's out on the burlesque opera in the middle.

This is a marriage made in heaven. Franz Ferdinand benefit greatly from the Sparks influence. A witty and entertaining listen. So good I bought it twice (went for a vinyl copy having downloaded it to try).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good buy for the novice or casual user., 17 Aug. 2015
For the price it's excellent. Quite sensitive but takes some getting used to. Could do with some pre-set buttons rather than relying solely on the up and down scroll. Dual watch feature is very useful. Best of all is that it is small and has reasonable battery life. One for the casual user, or novice wanting to learn the basics of air band scanning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adds Space and Air., 26 Jan. 2015
As has been said the 2M Red cartridge and stylus is an excellent starting point. The 2M Blue is a good upgrade which adds a bit more detail, space and air, and cleaner top end to the already competent 2M Red, though the 2M Red is still initially more exciting and impressive. The Blue is well worth considering - but twice the price?

4.0 out of 5 stars The AT95E is surprisingly good, though it shouldn't be overated, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fitted this in a 3400 cartridge body as AT use one body for several cartridges. The AT95E is surprisingly good, though it shouldn't be overated. It holds it's own but is no giant killer as some imply. It tracks reasonably well, but it is on the bright side of neutral, and detail is OK but not exceptional. Would sound fine in good arm on decent turntable through budget amp and speakers, and OK with more expensive stuff. You probably can't better this at the price, and it is quite engaging and likeable. The Ortofon OM5E costs a bit more and is more neutral, but the AT95E has a certain character. The next step up would be the excellent Ortofon 2M Red - but the stylus costs three times as much as the ATN95E. If you were starting out it's a good place to start from.
