SpeakaBoo – Bamboo acoustic speaker

Welcome! Thanks for dropping in and for showing interest in this novel idea of mixing cutting-edge technology with the simple beauty of mother nature. SpeakaBoo amplifies and improves the audio quality coming out of an iPhone speaker in an eco-friendly way, using only bamboo, which has the natural ability to resonate sound within its walls. Each SpeakaBoo is handcrafted from carefully selected stems of bamboo. These vary in length and diameter, and for each SpeakaBoo, a particular dimension is chosen to give it its own sound and character. SpeakaBoos are designed to allow your iPhone to be charged while docked to the unit. It can therefore be used as a natural amplifier as well as a docking station. The home button can be accessed while it is docked. They are packed in a neat little bag made out of recycled newspaper, produced by a charity employing disadvantaged workers. These are the flame treated ‘Dragon’ style. A flame has been carefully applied throughout the bamboo skin to dry all the moisture out for enhanced natural acoustics as well as to give them a darker look. These have been specifically designed to fit the iPhone 6 and 6s. The SpeakaBoo is deigned to snugly fit the iPhone alone, not with any protective case around it. If you would like to fit it with a case, please check my other items and select the universal adjustable version. The iPhone and USB cable are not included. Peace of mind guarantee: If you are not 100% satisfied with this item I will refund your money as soon as I receive it back, as long as it is in its original condition and within 30 days of receipt.

Hednoise Street Over Ear Headphones – : Ticks a few boxes

A sub-£15 part of headphones is never going to emulate the more expensive models on the market, but these do a fair job of satisfying most of the basicsthe ‘phones themselves are relatively understated, with perhaps the red cabling being the only real overstated feature. The ear-pieces are comfortable, but i would have rather they were a little larger as they don’t sit particularly well. Sound quality is decent, certainly compared to cheaper in-ear sets – the around ear design cancelling out much of the background noise. I think these would be ideal as a ‘second-pair’ where they mighty take a bit of a battering; or for children, who i think would find them ideal.

At the end of the day these headphones are great value. My children like to use my headphones, but i really don’t like them using my decent ones, these headphones don’t provide the best sound, but the are more than acceptable and are robust. Not for the person who wants a musical experience, but if you want a cheap robust set of headphones then these are perfect.

Arrivers promptly great quality.

These headphones are not the best and certainly not the worst i’ve ever used. Compared to many they do the job. The sound quality is okay not brilliant but okay and especially for the price point probably better than most. They offer functionality as well being able to take phone calls etc. They have the look of very expensive headphones but only the look once you pick them up you know they are not the real deal. On saying that if you have kids in college or you enjoy curling up on sofa listening to audio books then for the price they are a winner. If you enjoy music if you enjoy really really enjoy music then there are better headphones for not much more out there. These are definitely middle to lower end of the market. You get more than you pay for but you could do much better. I would though recommend these for the kids who mindlessly walk to school and college listening to vibes and texting their mates because they are excellent for this and if they drop them or leave them on the bus then you have lost not so much at the end of the day and they do have many extras that more expensive models charge you for such as call facility.

Well worth the money,brilliant sound ,just wish my singing was as good. So good ive just ordered a pair for my 16 year old daughter as mine keep appearing in her bedroom.

A good first pair of headphones which, with their shiny red design, i think are squarely aimed at the teenager market. They have a good amount of padding around the ears and on the headband, which makes for comfortable reasonably long listening sessions and they appear to be sturdily constructed. The sound is perfectly acceptable to my ears and while not scaling the peaks of a +£100 pair is good for the price. There is an in line microphone for use with a mobile phone, which works well.

First off, i would never have considered buying these had i not had my new, more expensive headphones stolen, but that’s my preference. They seem rugged enough to put up with general use and abuse of the generic £15-headphone-wearer on the tube or whatever. I was let down by the clarity; spending £10 more on some sony headphones i used to own offered a lot better quality for not a lot more cost. But, they’re cheap and they work. The cable’s a good length and there’s phone compatibility for iphone etc.

There’s realy no argument that these hednoise over ear headphones area bargain as long as one is prepared to accept their evident limitations. For fifteen quid the sound quality is relatively good albeit a little wooly aroundthe edges. When compared with slightly more expensive models (my £35 sonyphones are amazingly good for the price) they’re more than a tad disappointing. The finish, truth-be-told, is somewhat lacklustre and the red, black andsilver plastic body can’t really compare with the market leader whose styleit is rather obviously attempting to emmulate (are you watching mr dre?) butit’s not a bad looking piece of kit with which to increase your urban cred. The biggest problem, however, is the amount of sound which leaks out ofthe ear pads. If you wore them on a train you’d almost certainly be invitinga sharp tap on the shoulder and a frown from irritated fellow passengers. All-in-all i can’t muster more than an average rating for this one.

These over ear closed back headphones look better than they sound, but for the money they are impressive. The styling is in the contemporary ‘beats’ mode, with the shiny metal adding a touch of class. The red lead is strong and unlikely to knot up. They come with a plug in adapter for use with a smart phone. This then connects with the inline mic. The main advantage of this is that you have the option to not use the adapter and these then work on standard headphone jacks on your mp3 player. The ear pads are comfy and fit securely, giving a good level of insulation against background noise. Sound wise they are styled for heavy bass response, which to my ears is at the cost of balanced mids and highs, but this is partly a matter of taste and can usually be compensated for by the user in terms of eq settings. If you are a bass freak, then the good news is that you will like these. Overall these are clearly not a great pair of ‘phones, but for the money they will appeal to the young style conscious market.

I was looking for a reasonably priced pair of earphones for travelling and the like and didn’t want to use my more expensive monster set. I didn’t know this brand but i gave it a go and was very happy i did. Decent bass levels and clear audio sound. Nicely packaged, comfortable and look great. For a product under £20 you do get a really decent pair of ear phones and i am looking to purchase a couple more for my kids. Highly recommended and happy.

Since my old pc headset broke, i’ve been using these headphones for my laptop. They’re compact and comfortable, and the black-and-red design is attractive. The ear pads are just a shade on the smaller side than i’d like (i have sensitive cartilage piercings which get a bit mushed), but probably not an issue for most. I had one issue which i hope is an unusual one-off problem – when they came out of the box, the wire from the headphones to the mic was not secure, and the copper was exposed. This struck me as dangerous and shoddy, but since i worked the housing back in, it hasn’t come out. Of course, it isn’t getting heavy street-use so it might be different if it was. That certainly raises questions about overall production quality. In-line volume control would also be helpful, whatever device this is used with, so i found that a little frustrating. However, i have no complaints about the sound quality. The strong bass is a bit too much for computer tv-watching, but that can be adjusted on the machine.

This is a pretty good on a small budget as long as you can respect that sound quality will not be comparable to the more expensive headphones, and you will have to be more forgiving with deep bass. It just about handled the max volume limit on my ipod, but even then it sounded slightly tinny. For the price, the sound quality is sufficient and better than some of the cheaper in ear headphones. Regarding comfort and quality of build, it is light, the faux leather is soft and nicely stitched together. The ear pieces are equally soft, however they don’t pivot. The headband is also nicely padded and can be extended for comfort. The headphones comes with a mobile phone adapter and has an in-line microphone and mute / remote call control for when you’re out and about. Judging by the colour, price, mobile phone compatibility and the much smaller ear pieces, i’d say that these would make a great present for the younger generation, especially with christmas on the horizon soon.

I shall start this review by stating that i’ve used numerous pairs of headphones over the years ranging from freebies from blackberry to dre beats and sennheiser hd series. The phrase that ultimately springs to mind after trying these phones is. If you’re expecting anything special sound and comfort wise. Open the package and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d received some knock off dre beats. The colours and styling is much the same but the quality is much worse. The cable on the set i received had almost come detached from the phones themselves and i had to spend the first 5 minutes repairing them before i could even plug them ini spent the first 5 minutes wearing the headphones unplugged in order to get my head around (pardon the pun) how damn uncomfortable they are. Perhaps its my unusually large head but the phones seemed to be squeezing inwards. Very hard like i had entered some sort of brainwashing machine. Very awkward sensation indeed and i can’t expect these to be suitable for long term use. This of course may differ from user to user, but i am here to offer my opinion and experience. After fiddling around a bit in order to find the most comfortable position for the phones to sit, i untangled the cord and paired them up with my iphone 4s. Now in order to not remain totally negative, i must say i like the cord arrangement on these. Nice thick, red cord that seems to want to stay in a straight line and not curl into a ball every 2 seconds, and is of decent length too.

I am a headphone virgin having always been happy with ‘free’ ear-buds that came with my phone upgrade (must have a drawer full of them). I just never got around to buying a pair of headphones. Why bother?thanks to amazon vine for the gift of these headnoise over ear headphones. After a few days of listening to music with them i finally get it. They are comfortable and pleasantly warm. The sound is much better too. Can’t say i’d wear them out and about – a much younger man’s thing – but i really like these headphones. I see on amazon that they’re quite cheap too which is nice if the get borrowed or sat on.

HiFiMAN HE-400 Supra-Aural Headphones : Have to be heard to be believed

Amazing headphones, very happy with them, and love the musical sound.

Amazing headphones, very happy with them, and love the musical sound.

Have to be heard to be believed. I got a pair of beyerdynamic t90 & had to send them back as they did not work. So in the interim i treated myself to the above & the improvement was incredible, these cans are without a doubt the best headphones i have owned. Clear, detailed ,great soundstage to the point that you think you are in the studio. So much so i blew another £135 on a hifiman cable upgrade & they sound fantastic. I have decided to use my beyer’s as a second pair, i think the 400s are a true bargain if you are like me a serious music lover.

I have had these now for almost 2 years and these are truly stunning in every sense of the world. I use the njc monitor ii hpa with these and the result is a musical odyssey. I must however mention that be very careful with the cables. I ripped off the hp cables easily (my bad) and now considering a replacement cable.

Brilliant for $400 or £250. When i originally got into this hobby some 2 years ago, my first run of purchases included sennheiser hd650’s, denon d5000 and ultrasone pro900’s. I also had a couple beaters from koss laying around like the porta pros (which i like). So upon purchasing my first true head amp (a fiio e10) i thought my journey was over. I had an amazing closed headphone, an amazing open headphone, a decent amp/dac. Lets close the book on this consumer business and listen to some music. From there i focused a good amount of my energy on (a) fixing up my 54 lincoln and (b) mechanical watches. . I was in the throws of said watch obsession waiting for steinhart to fill inventory on the ocean 44 dive watch when i saw an episode of “how it’s made” on tv at the akg factory in austria where they take you through the steps of construction on one of the k702’s. . Oh i like thosesince steinhart was pushing their restock date back to august. Maybe i can spend some of that money that is burning a hole in my pocket on a pair of headphones. . But this time reading through forums, websites and reviews the kiss of death was bestowed on the k701 and 702 (which were my knee jerk target purchase after watching the show) but words like: lacking bass, thin sounding, airy and very neutral were intertwined into descriptions of their sound. I cannot handle thin sounding anything. I’ve been to too many live shows to be able to pass off a thin sound as accurate. Also (to me) the word “neutral” conjures up images of a lifeless two dimensional sound that is lacking pace rhythm& and attack. Neutral is about as exciting as flati cannot imagine an oem that would enjoy reading a review of their products, headphones, speakers or otherwise as “very flat and neutral”. So after jettisoning the 702 notion on its face, further headfi forum reading of ‘this vs that’ impressions and product reviews and general chatter brought forth numerous mentions of a new player in the game.

Koss Clipper Sportclip Clip-On Headphones – Ok, but not customized enough

These are the second pair of koss clipper sportclip headphones i have gotten – and these ones were for my mom. My first pair hasn’t even worn out yet. Great for running or working out; i run outside and it gives enough outside noise that i’m comfortable wearing them on the road but i still enjoy my music while i run. The metal that goes in the clip part itself allows you to bend it to make it more comfortable for you as well.

Koss clipper sportsclip clip-on headphones & case. I have been using the headphones for 2 days now and am very impressed with the product, they are an excellent fit and clip neatly onto the ear while the white piece on the actual speaker hooks onto the side of the ear entrance this keeps the speaker from moving. They are very comfortable once in position and do not hurt my ear unlike the hard button type which i found really uncomfortable. An excellent buy thanks koss.

Great cheap headphones that do the job. I bought these headphones for the gym and jogging and i’m very impressed. They look good and the sound from them isn’t bad either, for the price. The great thing about them is they fit around my ears because other headphones that insert into the ear-canal kept falling out. They have an advantage over other similar earphones because you can bend the slim metal clip that goes around the ear to nearly any shape. Since they don’t fit right into the ears, they don’t however cancel out all noise pollution which some people may see as a disadvantage but i find this very useful. I like to be able to hear some of the outside world so i’m not oblivious to everything around me. Overall a very good price for very functional headphones.

Grandson had asked for these for xmas, was pleased with them, & how they hooked round ears. Had been unable to find others to match.
