The best headphones around if your not looking to spend over £100. Pumps out the bass and still keeps the sound undistorted at high volumes. Comes with 3 different ear piece sizes to fit everyone and give the best sound quality all round and so they fit snug in your ears. Another little feature is that they are somewhat sound-canceling, So those loud journeys on the bus or train are drowned out by the blissful sounds of whoever you want.

 Brilliantly powerful !

I have used these headphones for 6 years, owning two pairs because i am so impressed with the amazing sound quality produced from these tiny 9mm drivers.

They seem to deliver rich, clear and deep bass with no distortion at high volumes, crisp and sharp vocals regardless what sort of music you play even though it seems to be impossible from such small and compact headphones, they certainly out perform normal open-air headphones by a light-year, and still compete with incredibly exspensive headphones like Shure In-ear headphones.

The first time i used these i was extreamly dissapionted with them, the sound was flat and dull, so i packed them up ready to send them back.
I then tried them again but pushing them further into the ear.
My head almost exploded from the incredibly powerful sound that blew me away !
I was completly stunned, not being able to understand how it was physically possible that such small headphone could produce Hi-Fi quality sound and especially for the price.

They come bundled with a really nice silk-like linned draw string pouch to carry and protect them in and a plastic clip capsule for protecting the main headphone units from any damage while in transit, you can also use this for keeping the headphones around your neck like a necklace ready for their next use. (Very handy, you realise how much you used it when you use normal headphones again).
You also get three different sized pairs of earbuds for different sizes ears.

And one thing you can be sure of, once you have used them you will NEVER want to go back to normal headphones !

Well worth the money !

I got a pair of these about 3 years ago, and they still work to this day. Where people say they have 1 earpiece randomly stop working, you need to clean them about once every few months, and find a way to suck the earwax out the piece. These really are great quality earphones, as I've taken mine through hell and back. I've trodden on them, been in all weather conditions, etc

The changeble ear rubber things (or whatever they are called) are a brilliant idea for getting the best fit for comfort.

Well worth the money and an instant upgrade to anyone's MP3 player, as I found the head phones that came with my I-pod, were substandard when compared to these headphones.

 3rd pair now.....

...and not because they are poor quality either!!! I first bought a pair of these early 2006, had them for a year, and got aftershave on the special coating that stops the wire from knoting, and it rotted the rubber away. I replaced them 2 weeks later, at the orignal price again (£29.99) only to loose them 3 weeks later, how i dont know, but i did. I now have my third pair, at the lower price (£14.99) and they are without doubt the best i have ever owned, hence why i have now shelled out £75 on 3 pairs!! Try the more expensive, then buy these, you wont go back!!!
