5.0 out of 5 stars His best work since Kyuss., 3 July 2015

Best album he's recorded since Kyuss. Best track: Rolling Stoned (the 1.5 minute intro is amazing).

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended., 13 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a black one (which actually looks a very dark brown) for the lounge. I was so pleased with it, I bought a cream one for the hall. These clocks are a bargain. They look expensive and keep perfect time. Highly recommended.


Bose ® AE2w Bluetooth Headphones - Black
Bose ® AE2w Bluetooth Headphones - Black
Price: £199.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Bose AE2w : better than others I've tried., 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I searched for comfortable Bluetooth headphones with good sound quality starting with Sennheiser MM500x, then Philips Fidelio M1BT, then Sony MDR1RBT and ended up with Bose AE2w.

I found the Sennheiser and Philips headphones very uncomfortable. So much so that they hurt me with prolonged use. Good sound quality, though.

The Sony headphones are comfortable but had skipping issues with my Apple iPad. Sound quality not as good as the Bose.

I've also tried on the Beats Studio BT (but not listened to them) and found them to be uncomfortable.

In comparison to all the others I've tried, the Bose are by far the best for comfort. I wear them for up to a complete drain of a full charge (about 7 hours) and they do not hurt me at all. The sound quality is also excellent in my opinion, so much so that I am hearing things I've not heard before. No problems with connectivity either.

The one downside with the Bose is that a full charge only lasts about 7 hours. They recharge in under 2 hours. Timings v approx!

Bluetooth headphones are where it's at and are a joy to use. The Bose ones are the best I've found and I'm seriously considering buying another pair to supplement the pair I've got.

Highly recommended and reasonably priced in comparison with the others referred to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, 18 April 2014
This review is from: Photo Finish (Audio CD)
This is Rory Gallagher's best LP in my opinion. More commercial than a lot of his stuff which is probably why I like it so much. Some truly great tracks.

Against:

Nothing

2.0 out of 5 stars Sound terrible, 20 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took delivery of the Sony MDR1RBT headphones yesterday and they sound terrible. I therefore fail to understand the reviews praising the sound quality.

I've only used them for 3 or 4 hours. Do they require running in? If so, for how long and by how much is the sound quality likely to improve?

Ps I've been using them with an iPad 4 with music sourced from Spotify Premium.

Edit: After using them for several more hours, the sound quality remains poor. I've also noted there is no CE mark stamped on the headphones. I have concluded they must be fake and I will now have to go to the trouble of returning them to Amazon for a refund.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good, 19 Oct. 2013
This review is from: It's Only a Movie (Audio CD)
This is not a good album. Buffet Tea For Two is 5 star but the rest is weak. A shame. In comparison and in order of preference, Family Entertainment, Music In A Dolls House, A Song For Me and Bandstand are all 5 star. Anyway was another disappointment but much better than this. RIP Jim King.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST BOWIE ALBUM EVER IMO, 19 Oct. 2013
This review is from: The Next Day (Audio CD)
I just felt I needed to say this album is a work of genius. Whereas I like much of what David Bowie has done in the past, he has never been up there with my own personal favourites until I heard this. Not only is this by far the best Bowie I've ever heard, it's firmly up there with the best albums of all time in my opinion. Sheer brilliance from start to finish. Truly awesome stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robert Plant's best album., 6 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fate Of Nations (Audio CD)
This is in my opinion Robert Plant's best post Zeppelin album. Best track is The Greatest Gift, but all tracks are good.
