Goldring NS1000 / Active Noise Reduction Cancelling Headphones
I've had these less than 2 years. They have decent sound quality for the price. They have pretty good drivers!
They were never the most comfortable headphones and hurt my head after around 30 minutes.
These are renowned for poor build quality and I have discovered this myself...
Recently the NC switch has been playing up, attenuating (dimming down) the signal to the left ear cup...
Just today the mini jack socket is faulty. When the mini jack lead is fully plugged in the right ear cup is almost completely cut out. I have to pull the lead out 1/2 way to remedy this, which means the lead drops out. The sound quality is also poor when it is like this as there is insufficient contact between the socket and lead.
I am going to try and pull the left cup apart and replace the socket and switch.
These are obviously not a pair of earphones for life. They were only worth around 50 quid then, are they even worth 50 quid if they don't last 2 years? They were never worth their stated original price of 150 - 160 quid. They feel cheap and plasticky because they are just that!
Summary: A pair of good drivers within a rubbish pair of headphones!
