Hi again, Decided that since I?ve spent my last couple of reviews telling you what type of Cd player or MP3 player to get, that the natural next step would be tell you of my discovery of these wonderful little headphones to help you get the best out of you music equipment. I got these just after Christmas last year in a sale at HMV for about £19.99, although this may seem a awful lot for headphones when you could just get a little cheap pair for a few quid, these interested me, being the music lover I am, and also I had seen them around for over £30 so I decided to get in on the offer when I could. Style / Appearance These Headphones are marmite, you either love them or hate them, and the appearance is the only way you can justify disliking this product. As you can see from the picture, they are small circular discs that wrap around your ear, (as appose to normal small plug like headphones which fit into your ear). The clip, wire and base of the headphones are silver but on the outside there is a clip to allow you to change the colour of the caps on them (blue in the picture). These headphones come in 2 colours: silver which come with silver and see through blue caps and black which come with red and black caps. I opted for the silver ones as I thought they looked slightly futuristic and were just a change from the norm. I have to say I personally love the look of these headphone but every time I wear them I'm guaranteed to get someone ask "Ew what are they" so I guess it's just a matter of taste: you either love them or hate them. Comfort Another worry for people about these headphones are the comfort of them as they are only held in place by a small plastic clip. The clip simply slides around the top part of your ear and rest behind it. I found that it took a few times to get used to but I had never been a fan of the traditional plug style headphones and these eventually were much more comfortable as I didn?t fe
el like my ear was being stretched. Having them on feels weird for the first few seconds but after that you barely even notice it. Warning people with small ears may experience slight difficulties as the clip may not be able to wrap round as securely, but I wouldn?t worry too much. They also only weigh 35g and therefore don?t strain your ear at all. Sound Now to be honest this is wearing the headphones make up for anything bad anyone can say about them. The sound from these things is simply amazing. I'd describe them as more like small speakers rather then the fuzzy crunchy noise you get out of normal headphones. The vocals, the base, everything is so clear and doesn?t loose any of this clearness as the volume is increased. People normally say the sound is much better and when I go to check there normally isn't any type of difference at all but believe me with these it is an immense difference. Price As I briefly mentioned I got mine for £19.99 in a sale last year. My advice to you all would be wait till after Xmas and when the sale are all on you should be able to get them around about this price. Out of sale expect to pay from £20-£30 for them. Overall The sound is superb and worth the money but take a look at the picture, its completely down to whether or not you think they look cool and futuristic or just make you look like a fool. I would say they look cool therefore Id rate this well and say any serious music lovers could really do with a pair of these. Thanks and Hope you enjoyed reading, look forward to reading some of your ops - Kris
Hey there! Just thought I'd tell you guys about these headphones from Sony. The MDR-Q33LP. Catchy name! I'm forever buying new haedphones, mainly because I tend to fiddle with them and end up breaking the cable near the plug. I was just thinking the other day about going out and buying a new pair of headphones. But, when I got home from work today there was a parcel waiting for me. It was a pair of Sony MDR-Q33LP headphones! I completely forgot that a couple of months back I entered a competion on the sony website to win these headphones. Sorry folks the competition is over now. So are they any good? Yeah, they're great! The sound from these things is amazing. I usually buy cheaper headphones(because of my tendancy to break them), but you can really tell the difference in sound quality with these. They feel great too, although putting them on is a bit tricky at first. The benefit of them not having a solid neckband makes a difference comfort wise. They're also very light. I reckon they look kinda funky too. For the fashion concious out there, they come with replaceable caps in different colours. Each pair of heaphones comes with two sets of caps. Oh, and there are two different colours of headphones too. The black headphones come with black and ruby red caps. The silver headphones come with silver and transparent blue caps. You can buy additional different coloured caps, theres currently around 12 colours to choose from including red, white, gold, mint green rainbow and shy pink! Do you want to see the specs? OK. Driver Unit: 30 mm diameter, dome type Type: Open-air, Dynamic Magnet: Neodymium Impedance: 24 ohms at 1 kHz Sensitivity: 104 dB SPL, 1 watt Maximum Power Handling: 1,000 mW (EIA) Frequency Response: 18 - 24,000 Hz Cord: 5 feet (1.5m), OFC, braided neck chain style Plug: Gold-Plated, L-shaped stereo mini plug
Weight: 35g without cord Mmmmm fascinating. ;-) Anyway I reckon these headphones are great, especially at the price I paid for them! I wonder if Sony will give me an MP3 player to use with them?
When I saw these Headphones I was amazed, firstly by their value. At £19.95 they were a bargain. Compared to their predecessors, they're cool, lightweight, and very comfortable. Adaptable to most minidisc remotes, and accompanies an extension lead for the socket. They have small changable coloured covers to alter their look if you were to get bored. They also look great with no cover for a more simple appearance. A great advantage is that there is no rigid connection between the two earpeices, allowing greater comfort and ease. Springed ear clips help fit all diferent ears enhancing their superiority over other headphones. Unfortunately, they can be a little tricky to put on. At first, I had difficulty mastering wearing these and finding the best position. Now all is well, but that can be a little annoying to start with.
