  1.  Top marks to Phonak

    Posted: 

    Top marks to Phonak for producing such a high end IEM earphone for this price.

    The sound quality rivals many of the big boys and walks all over the Sennheiser IE series and Bose in-ears. The PFE digs out all the detail in your music you are missing with inferior earphones.

    Phonak have got the in-ear fit perfect with the PFE. The earphone just sits in your ear, with no wait on the ear canal. The over-ear cabling is very clever. I'd never heard of Phonak, but doing my research it seems they know a thing or two about the ear (over 60 years developing hearing aids).

    The sound quality of the Phonak PFE 122 is exceptional, with loads of detail and accuracy. Bass response is on the light side with the fitted grey acoustic filters, but by swapping to the black acoustic filters it's more chunky. I've since upgraded to Phonak's new green acoustic filters and the bass is now powerful (in fact I'm not sure if I prefer green or black filters).

    The PFE 122 is very nicely made, with a durable earphone body and robust cabling that has some kind of tough coating to protect it (according to posts on head-fi.org they recently revised the cabling).

    If your upgrading from cheaper earphones (e.g. Sennheiser CX300) the sound quality will blow you away!

  2.  Great introduction to better earphones

    The CX300 is a great way to see what a better quality pair of earphones can offer. Sound is 100 times better than the standard iPod buds and they don't cost the earth. Highly recommended.

  3.  Great little netbook

    Posted: 

    I've resisted the netbook revolution until last week when I bought myself this Eee 1001 P.

    The machine works great for basic stuff, e.g. web, email, word, excel, etc, but struggles if you try to throw more at it (I'm a software developer).

    An ideal machine for staying in touch while out on the road.

  4.  Good for running

    These headphones work great for running, but aren't the best sound quality on the planet.

    The headphones do not seal on your ear, so not great for the gym. I go running on the street, so the fact I can hear my surroundings is a good thing!

    If you are looking for headphones for the gym it might be worth looking for a pair that seal in your ear.

    Overall good for the running when you want to stay aware of your surroundings.

  6.  Perfectly comfortable & high fidelity sound

    Posted: 

    I've always had problems getting earphones to stay in my ears... until now! After reading the 5 star review of the Phonak Audeo PFE 012 in Stuff magazine I did some more research and bought a pair.

    The sound is very clear, with warm and they have well defined bass response (not over-cooked like Bose in-ears). The cabling is very well made (compared with my Sennheiser CX300-IIs) and the earphones feel of very high quality - you can tell Phonak have been making hearing aids for 60 years.

    Best of all they fit my rather small ears very well and are comfortable to wear for many hours (including a transatlantic flight). I've since added some Comply Foam tips for an even more comfortable fit.
