Sony X-Bass MDR XB20 EX In Ear Headphones
Had previously only used Sennheiser headphones and had purchased the Sennheiser CX300 II Precision ECO phones from Play which sounded great. However, their build quality was very poor as the right earpiece kept failing. After two pairs decided to go for these Sony X-Bass phones after reading the good reviews here. When I got them I plugged them into my phone and was really disappointed with the bass, volume and overall sound quality. Was about to return them to Play and ask for a refund when I decided to try them in my iPod. The difference was astounding! Wonderful clarity of sound, warm, powerful bass but not at the expense of mid-range or top-end which also sounds excellent. I am using the large ear buds which seem to fit very snugly and do cancel a lot of background noise out. Volume is very good so you don't need MP3 player turned up full which is good. Even at high volume there is no distortion. For less than 17 quid these Sonys are a real bargain and I would definitely recommend them. All I would say is that to get the most out of these headphones you should probably use them in an iPod or decent MP3 player/phone. I can't comment on long term reliabilty as I've only just got them but build quality seems good.
Play.com / 16GB / USB Flash Drive
What can I say? Ordered this couple of days before Xmas and it arrived on time!!! No instructions..plug it in to a USB port and away you go! Very easy to use..drag/drop files to external drive in 'My Computer'..as easy as that! Pretty fast and my PC is ten years old! No probs as yet and does have flashing red LED when plugged in depsite what is said in other reviews. Other people have said that it is too big to plug in next to another USB device but have had no problems with that. Does what it says on the tin and for a great price! 16GB for 13 quid!!! Works brilliantly in my dvd player for DIVX movies. Buy one now..and I don't work for PLAY! Only downside I guess is that you can't put it on a key chain..but hey..keys is for keys! :)
Let There Be Rock
AC/DC - CD
23 New from
The 1977 release of 'Let There Be Rock' finally brought together the proficiencies of AC/DC onto one electrifying rock'n'roll album, capturing not only their prowess in the studio but also the feel of their extraordinary live performances. The album opens with the foot-stomping 'Go Down' (dedicated to super-groupie, Ruby Lips) and incorporates one of Angus Young's (lead guitar) best overdriven solos to date. The likes of 'Dog Eat Dog', 'Bad Boy Boogie' and 'Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be' clearly show that the band are water-tight and know how to combine a pure rock'n'roll groove with sheer power. 'Let There be Rock', the title track is a furious, breakneck anthem extoling the virtues of what matters most; straight up, no nonsense, hard, rock'n'roll. (Whilst recording this track Angus' Marshall stack caught fire but the producer left the tape rolling in order to capture such a monumental solo). The infamous 'Whole Lotta Rosie' winds up the album, (a dedication from Bon Scott (vocalsl) to a special female friend of 'larger proportions') in style.
Consistently heavy riffs from Malcolm Young alongside the rock solid drums and bass of Phil Rudd and Mark Evans, punctuated by the most blisteringly wild solos ever to come out of a Gibson SG make this album an absolute classic. Bon Scott's signature squeal and camp improvisations sit perfectly with the heavy power grooves of the rest of the band.
Enough said, go and buy this now! It's a piece of rock history.
