5.0 out of 5 stars Good output for a hall lamp, 16 July 2014
Good output for a hall lamp, may prefer a higher output for a ceiling light. Looks excellent, and a nice colour tone. Looking forward to a 40w or 60w equivalent version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good item, many uses., 13 Mar. 2013

I have bought a number of these now and am using them in the following ways:

Energy efficient night light in dimmed red/orange mode in a table lamp. (Avoiding blue/white light that disturbs their sleep). Without having to have multiple lamps, it then is used un-dimmed in the evening in white mode for reading etc, so I only have to buy one lamp and one bulb.

Also using a pair of these in similar way in my room, so that it can provide adequate light to the room in white mode, but switch to an orange red mode in dimmed mode for one person to read whilst the other gets off to sleep more easily than is possible with a standard light. Aiming the remote allows control of each bulb independently which proves helpful.

Also using one for the other kids who are aren't old enough to reach the light switch, but need to turn it on by themselves sometimes. Remote is used to turn it on when entering the room, or off at bed time without having to get up. Forgetting to turn it off isn't so bad now, as the wattage is minimal.

The fade function acts like a therapy light, and seems to hold the interest and calm the baby pre-sleep. I imagine this would be of interest for carers also.

Not as bright, but much cheaper to run than the old "energy efficient" halogens we replaced, and much easier on the eyes first thing in the morning when dimmed! I would hope these last longer than the halogens to justify the price, even given the electric savings.

Future improvement would be a little brighter. Nice feature would be a off for 6-8 hours option so that it automatically comes on in the morning to wake you up gently using the dimming functions in combination with the "sun rise spectrums" already in the unit.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Sense than Money., 27 Jun. 2012

Looked at the Bose and some others before deciding on these, like others I would find it hard to justify spending any more on what may just be a brand, or in discernible difference. I wasn't disappointed. Obviously some noise will get through, but what was great was the planes constant drone which was all but removed. I ended up using them as ear muffs with the noise cancelling function turned on, just to enjoy some silence on long flights. If you think you can hear background noise through these, (or other noise cancelling head phones for that matter,) check the interference isn't coming from the planes own jack point. My flights had interference from the in flight movie point, which could make you think there was a fault with the head phones. Pull out the socket, or plug into a iPod, and you will hear a big difference in sound quality and static! Even after comparing the price to the Bose they aren't cheap, but are relatively compact and unlike others, come with a hard case, so you don't need to worry so much about breaking them. They also have a standard jack into the head phone (one side) so, if you have ever destroyed a set of head phones just because the cord got snagged, you are safe with these. Also, they just take a single AAA standard battery, easy to replace, but lasted beyond all flights so far anyway.

The only comment I would make, is what the 22dB reduction means, one passive set I looked at said it blocked 32dB without using noise reduction, so in theory they would do more, but what does the 22dB here actually mean? Is it in addition to the basic properties of the set? (Value unknown) I think maybe yes, but it would be nice to have had this clarified in the text above...

If you want a good quality set, with a reasonable price tag, then your senses won't be disappointed...
