My search for new headphones started after my lovely £40 Goldrings broke for good. I choose these ones because of the price. It had stung me a little to hand over the previous amount of money. Now I realise that that £40 was well worth it- because these are worthless for me.
Why are they worthless? The main thing I use them for is the long walk to college everyday- I like a bit of music to keep me entertainned. The road is very busy and therefore (I realise now) noise-cancelling headphones are pretty essential. When I walk down the road with these I hear everything but the music and I've actually now swapped them for the ones which came free with my mobile!
Other negatives: they are an uncomfortable fitting-very big. The necklace piece is too long and needs to be tied-or else a slight movement pull the earphones out of your ears. I am very careful with my money and just can't bring myself around to the idea of buying yet more earphones when these still 'work' I would send them back if I could.
