Sennheiser CX500 Headphones (White)
I decided it was time that I should probably spend out on some decent earphones, as my iPod earphones were broken and I'd driven over my other earphones.
So I bought these and haven't regretted it! I surfed the internet for recommend brands and apparently the top ones are Sennheiser and Shure. Shure tends to be the more expensive choice. Sennheiser have only recently started making earphone products other than headphones of which they are best known for.
In the 2 weeks of having them I've had the chance to try them out on a train, bus and plane!TRAIN - only could hear the sound of the engine with no music playing. The Ticket Officer had to wave in front of me to get my attention.BUS - didn't even hear the on board movie playing in the background (Hellboy). It made me jump as I took the earphones out.PLANE - could slightly hear the engine with music playing.
I need the explore all the ear plugs that come with the earphones, but it's comfortable to wear. 4 hour's plus and it may start to sting.
Even though I don't have experience of other earphones on the market, I would definitely recommend you to buy them. Wide audio frequency range, great bass, and superb value. Play.com has the best price for them.
The Sopranos - Series 5
19 New from
'The Sopranos' series is one that you either like or dislike. It's not everyone's cup of tea. At times it can be quite violent and gruesome, and also boring in places especially if you don't quite understand some of the plot. You have to listen carefully to the speech and be able to remember everyone's names because it can get a bit confusing.
The good thing about 'The Sopranos' story line is that there isn't too many sub plots going on at the same time. Each episode tends to wrap up each sub plot into one episode, with the main plot carrying on through.
The episodes are about 50mins long, yet they feel much longer which isn't a bad thing because by the end of each one you want to watch another.
The box set is well presented, all in a glossy finish. The box opens up to a inner folded layout that has printed images of the featured characters on it and contains the insert and holds the DVDs.
'The Sopranos' will at times have you on your the edge of your seat with suspense, especially due to the professional acting. But also features some humor with light jokes (mostly dark innuendos). So if you like mafia based films/tv, then you're sure to enjoy this series and it's others. My personal favorites are series 4 and series 6.
I personally found this series isn't as powerful as it's predecessor 'Series 4'. Overall I give 'The Sopranos - Series 5' a rating of 7/10

Sona HCS-2 Surround Sound Speaker Stands (Silver)
I had been searching for ages for stands to fit my Logitech Z-5500 because they are unique. The speakers are designed not to be attached to speaker stands and Logitech won't make speaker stands for them. Cut a long story short I found out how to attach them to stands. So I thought to try these stands out instead of paying £100 for stands I know will definitely fit.
I expected that the stands would be tacky, but it's a really sleek design. Unlike others the base is not too big, so I could fit it in the corner of my room without it getting in the way of my door. The wires from the speakers are totally concealed from the back connector of the speaker to the floor. With the 'universal fitting kit' it is very likely you are able to find some way of attaching your speakers to the stands (I managed to attach Logitech speakers). The stand itself is thin enough that it doesn't look distracting. The only downside I find is that when you have them extended full length they slightly bend. But then I'm sure this happens with other stands of this price range.
Overall I would say to buy these, definitely if you want to save some cash. I give them a rating of 9/10.
