      A good game not enough to rival the other top PS2 RPG's

      The dragon quest is an amazing series of games they've even managed to out sell the final fantasys in the past due to the japanese market, final fantasy being my favourite series ever I had to check out Dragon quest.
      Dragon quest VIII is the tale of a wandering king and his daughter who've been transformed into a gnome like creature and a horse, you take the role of the royal guard who is the only person to escape unaffected by the curse which was cast by the crazy jester.
      Over the game which can last for dozens of hours you team up with several key characters such as the beautiful magician and holy knight to chase down the villain responsible for the curse and restore the noble king and his daughter.
      As with the previous dragon quest games the charm aspects are favoured over the epic storytelling which is a shame because I felt an epic storyline along the way captures the hearts of the gamers along with the imagination but the basic storyline provides a simple excuse for the compelling gameplay.
      Slaying monsters and exploring dungeons are key to Dragon Quests VIII's gameplay, The battles are turn based but quick and easy.
      The game is vast and intricate so even though the battles are fast paced you can take your time to explore between locations, there is almost a pointless aspect to the game because of the lack of an Epic storyline but luckily there is much to see within the game with beautiful graphics and amazing landscapes that encourage you to keep exploring.

      I'm sorry but I agree with it.

      This is my own opinion and I welcome anyone's opinions on this as long as its within context, I completely agree with capital punishment for so many reasons, Firstly it would be a massive deterrent, would some of the most horrific crimes imaginable still of been committed if people knew they themselves wouldn't be treated to the same privilages as everyone else without working for them but instead executed for their crimes, personally I doubt it.
      Secondly the amount of money spent on housing criminal who will never see freedom again is unbelieveable huge why should we pay for people who have no remorse and freely admit they would do it again if they could, it is sickening and personally the people who campaign on their behalfs are just as bad, the money spent on their incarceration should be spent on the victims rather then housing them comfortably for the rest of their lives.
      My last main reason for agreeing with capital punishment is the familys, not the familys of the victims but the familys of these criminals, having visited someone in prison and finding it one of the worst moments of my life I feel it would be better to grieve and move on not to mention keeping innocent families away from these dangerous people.
      But on the otherhand I am aware of people in the past being falsely convicted and executed but we now live a day and age where proper investigations and techonology could be used to convict someone without a doubt before such a sentence is carried out and I will always believe innocent until proven guilty.
      Before I finish I want to ask a question,
      I read an articule about a pedophile who claimed he couldn't control himself, do you think if his life was the price he still wouldn't be able to control himself?

        An action gaming masterpiece from start to finish!

        No-one wants to spend the first few hours of a game drudging through slow tutorials, slow to build storylines and dull cut scenes, there are some awesum games out there like Metal Gear Solid that could learn a lot about how to start a game from God of War II, the sequel has a blockbuster feel of a beginning with an adrenaline charged taste of the entire game bunged at you in just the first few minutes.
        Barely before you've flicked the stick, the screen fills with the Colossus of Rhodes, a statue the size of a mountain with angry piercing blue eyes and an equally miffed demeanour.
        The ten minute intro which encompasses everything from fighting mere mortals to finding the boss's weak points is an amazing action packed example of what's to come.
        God of War II, like the first game is amazingly paced with action and set pieces around every corner, puzzle sections in empty chambers with only your echoing footsteps for company are quickly followed by a torrent of enemies to slice through.
        Just as you let your guard down during an uneventful cavern trek, you're jolted from complacency by a ornamental statue unexpectedly bringing a foot down on top of you.
        The cutscenes themselves are short and control os kratos is rarely taken away from the gamer which bonds you with your revenge fuelled demi god and all of his strengths and weaknesses.
        Even the Pegasus rides so far removed from the usual God of War experience are as amazingly designed and just as brilliant as the rest.
        With an inspired ancient Greek setting and superb combat system, you follow a pre-determined path, puzzles and fights are simply there to make that path more entertaining.
        But Kratos is an anti-hero, driven by a desire for power with rescue missions to save innocent characters more often than not end up with him sacrificing them for personal gain. He's tough to likeor even connect to but when surrounded by the brutality and evil of his existence, you want him to succeed on his quest.
        Bloodshed and survival are key to the game and you see this constantly, enemies aren't defeated they're slaughtered and finishing move allows you time to kill your enemies in a variety of ways.
        Not only is it vicious, it's intense with long drawn out battles and tougher then ever enemies, nothing's made simple for the gamer.
        Whilst the game itself if blood fueled and filled with gore you have to marvel at the imagery in the game as they really do an amazing job portraying the greek style, the cinematography of the first game returns but with a whole new quest very near flawless in design letting you follow a path, concentrating on bite sized yet challenging puzzles and brutal combats with some unforgettable scenes along the way.
        This game is perfect for so many different gamers, action, fantasy even if your just a fan of greek mythology I recommend this game, it far surpasses the first game but reminds you of the first one.

        Disadvantages

        A fantastic game on the same level visually as some of the earlier final fantasys!

        It's easy to describe Beyond Good & Evil, the 2003 release from Rayman creator Michel Ancel.
        Its main game play is very similar to certain Zelda games, especially the generally excellent The Wind Waker, with puzzle filled dungeons and transport to different parts of the game world, an intuitive combat system, and even heart containers.
        Add to this plenty of stealth levels, hovercraft racing, classic shooting sequences and even some platformer style elements then wrap it all up with a sophisticated story involving rich characters in a vivid, beautifully realized game world, basically It's Zelda for grown-ups without the annoying fetch quests so very big plus there.
        You play as Jade, a 20 year old scraping by as a freelance photographer, Her home the island city of Hillys, is under attack by a sinister alien race called the DomZ, Jade has taken in a group of kids whose parents have been lost in the attacks.
        Jade and the orphans share their lighthouse home with Pey'j, a half-hog, half-human. Pey'j is essentially Jade's adoptive uncle who raised her almost from birth, her parents mysteriously disappearing years ago.
        This game is amazingly filled with twists and turns, having you at one point fighting for your life to escape the invading DomZ only to later have you commiting domestic terrorism, I would explain the reason but it would be a very big spoiler and I dont wish to ruin this game for anyone.
        Beyond Good & Evil is essentially an action-adventure game, as Jade travels to different locations and speaks with a variety of characters in order to gather photographic evidence and expose the truth behind the Alpha Sections and the DomZ. Her basic tools include her dai-jo stick for melee attacks, light discs for ranged attack, and her trusty camera.
        Jade's camera is a central part of the game, as not only is it used to complete assignments and gather evidence but it also features a scanning function to reveal information about her environment. T
        he scanning here is instantaneous and far more helpful than frustrating.
        Through most of the game Jade has a friend with her, whether it's the charmingly portly Pey'j or Double-H, an IRIS operative.
        Not only are both characters extremely well developed offering witty remarks and information but you'll also rely on them to solve various puzzles.
        One of Beyond Good & Evil's most obvious strengths is that the game is breath takingly beautiful. It's shimmering, detailed and fluid.
        Shadows dance upon cave walls, the waters of Hillys ripple and reflect in detail, cities teem with vehicles, pedestrians, and floating video screens and it all runs with very few hitches. The framerate did drop occasionally but this never got in the way of game play.
        Beyond Good & Evil is one of those rare games that shines from all points with an unmistakable quality of intelligence and personality, it hold is own against so many others the only problem that I had with Beyond Good & Evil is that is can be wrapped up all too easily within 18 hours of gameplay after the eye watering visuals and amazing storyline I wanted to carry on.
        But any gamer should really check this game out as I found it completely involving and beautiful on the same level as the final fantasys.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Very good value for money, perfect for a cheap summer BBQ

        The disposable BBQ is really simple and easy to use and it gives you a set of instructions to guide you, which are very easy to follow.
        It should be placed on a flat surface, In the past we have simply placed it on the grass but you will get a patch of burnt grass underneath the BBQ we used four bricks to create a flat service to avoid this.
        The BBQ can give off alot of smoke when first lite until the charcoal is ready to cook so if your having a party try keeping away from the party area itself.
        To start you remove the packaging as well as the cardboard cover. use a lighter or a safety match to burn the paper to start the BBQ, it takes about a minute to burn through but an extra 15 minutes for the flames to fan down and allow you to cook the food.
        The whole wire mesh can be used to cook food but we found certain areas were better heated than others, You can cook all types of traditional BBQ food on the disposable BBQ such as burgers, sausages and kebabs.
        We also used forks to turn the food over to make sure everything cooked thoroughly, I would heavily suggest bringing a pair of tongs to as they are much better to use.
        I couldn't see much difference in the quality of cooking in comparison to a fixed BBQ, but the taste I find is always better with the charcoal BBQ's so this is a very cheap way to get charcoal grilled food.
        However, the BBQ does not last for as long as a fixed BBQ. It provides around two hours cooking time, which is fine for a small group or a short BBQ but could be a problem for longer summer parties. It takes a while to cool down though before you are able to dispose of the packaging.
        We normally pour a bottle of water over the coals to speed up the process but most of the BBQ is ready to be recycled, including the cardboard, foil and wire mesh, but can also be used afterwards to create a fire as we have done in the past on the beath just build a fire around the BBQ and you have yourself a nifty beachfire to party around after your BBQ.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A very good game if you love the film and/or book but not the best PS2 game out there.

        The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is a video game based on the film of the same name, which is, based on the classic book series from C.S. Lewis.
        The game is a basic fantasy adventure with plenty of puzzle-solving and some light combat. It closely follows the events of the movie and also uses quite a bit of footage from it to set up and close each stage of the game, which adds a feeling of involvment if you enjoyed the films.
        You might not want to play this game until after you've seen the film, lest you run the risk of spoiling the plot. Even if you haven't seen the movie or read the books, you'll still be able to appreciate some of the interesting and varied levels, each of which present unique challenges that require you to utilize the special abilities of each of the four playable characters.
        This isn't a basic hack and slash platform it actually requires a bit of critical thinking, which is a nice change of pace from the usual game based on a movie license as others have really let people down in the past.
        f you're interested in the game then you're probably familiar with the basic storyline, The game follows the events of the movie, Even if you haven't seen the movie, it doesn't take long to get the gist of what's going on.
        You can play as any of the four Penvensie siblings: Peter, the older brother; Susan, the older sister; Edmund, the younger brother; and Lucy, the younger sister. The game unlike the film forces you into the wardrobe to hide from the housekeeper without getting to explore the mansion or grounds much. Eventually, all of the children end up in Narnia, where they embark on an epic adventure to save the world from the evil White Witch. The story is filled with your basic fantasy standbys like ogres, Minotaurs, dwarves, and talking animals.
        There are 15 levels in the game, although some are quite small. For example, one entire level is a boss fight. Depending on which level you're playing, you'll be able to play as at least two of the four children, although some levels require you to use all four.
        This is because each character has special moves and abilities that are required to overcome certain obstacles. Peter is the strongest of the bunch, so you can use him for fighting off enemies or breaking through barriers. Susan is your ranged attacker, and she can throw snowballs and tennis balls, as well as use a bow and arrow. Edmund is a decent melee fighter, but he's also light and athletic enough that he can climb trees or posts and walk on delicate surfaces like thin ice or weakened floorboards. Lucy is small, so she can crawl through small passages to reach areas that the other children can't.
        Lucy can charm animals and use them to attack, and she can use her first aid skill to heal all the children so they cover all the bases there.
        There are abilities that require two of the children to team up, when you move close to a character you can press a button to start a joint attack. You can team up with Susan and Lucy to slide Lucy through barriers or to fire a volley of flaming arrows into the air.
        Also, Peter can grab Edmund and swing him around to inflict radial damage or to break down tough barriers. There are multiple different cooperative attacks for each combination of characters, although most of the challenges don't require you to use cooperative attacks at all.
        The game itself is an amazing interactive piece of the movie but while being a huge fan of the books and films I found this game didn't challenge me enough, I guess it was designed for younger players as the films whilst are based on classics are for children.
        All the same I enjoyed playing a game I have read and watched all my life and the graphics and game play is very well done & designed.

        Disadvantages

        One of the best games on the PS2 hours of entertainment, Recommend to any gamer!

        Grand Theft Auto III. What a game. Easily the best on the PlayStation 2, and probably any other system for that matter.
        You start off as a rookie criminal, busted by the cops after your girlfriend double-crossed you in a bank raid, quietly building up your contacts and level of respect in Liberty City, first with the Italian mafia, then with the Japanese yakuza and other criminal organizations. As your reputation improves you get offered more jobs via payphone, pager and face-to-face meetings. Sometimes your current boss meets you in the company of a mysterious stranger, who turns out to be some big-shot from downtown ready to offer you more work. Reliability is your key asset as far as they are concerned, and it helps improve your status and get you more work.
        Fans of the previous games probably wonder how anybody could achieve "reliability" in a game like Grand Theft Auto. In the previous games you could often mess up one mission, make a mistake, get shot, or something like that and then , that mission is no longer available to you. In some extreme cases this could render your progress up to that point null and void since there was no mid-game saving and if you needed to accrue loads more points you needed to get the missions which paid the best rates.
        This made reliability something of a fluke. Not so in Grand Theft Auto III. Although I'm not 100% sure I like it, you no longer have to get each mission right first time. You get an infinite number of chances to complete it, and you often have five or so missions available at various employers and payphones, so if you get stuck on any particular one you can leave it for later, Which makes the game alot easier to get through but at the same time takes away some of the urgency of the missions but I enjoyed it still the same and my frustration levels were at an all time low.
        Vehicles are the mainstay of the game, naturally. There are around a hundred in total and they range from the huge rig wreckers to the easy drive stationwagons.
        Everything is accounted for, and you can pinch just about anything on wheels (and perhaps more). You can also trash everything, as the cars have innumerable damage skins and crumple a lot more realistically than before. Nick a taxi as you swerve onto a main road and you'll know it. Hit something straight on and the bonnet flies up. Or maybe the doors give a little, failing to close. Ultimately, you can do far too many things for me to mention them all here.
        Watch out for it though, little tongues of flame mean the car is done for. In Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto II, it wasn't quite terminal until the car was a ball of flame but in GTA3 you get the hell out as soon as things start to turn red. You also need to get the hell out if you roll over.
        DMA have introduced Hollywood's attitude to physics in general - a car on its roof is a car which is about to blow up, and this can rock you off your feet if you're not too careful, losing you valuable health points.
        There are alot of problems with Grand Theft Auto III such as tree's you can drive straight through or the mnost noticable the distance clipping especially when driving very fast it's a little disheartening but doesn't detract from the game itself as it is easily one of the best games for the PS2
        5 out of 5 stars easily for one of the best games on the PS2.

        My opinion legalise, take the power away from the drug gangs

        My view on this is quite short,
        People choose whether to drink or not or smoke tobacco or not, with proper investment the negative properties of cannabis could be easily reduced, alcohol is one of the worst things in this country purely for the fact it is legal to slowly kill yourself but on top of that it costs the tax payers millions each year because of the amount of drunken injuries, Not to mention violence, unprotected sex and the rest.
        I have used cannabis when I worked late shifts, I would come home wired from work not wanting alcohol to relax me and not much else working, having a single spliff would unwind me and allow me to relax and get a good night's sleep, but my argument is purely pro-choice my body my rules the fact that it is illegal is giving criminal records to thousands of people no-more in the wrong in my eyes then drinking before they turn 18 and to be fair most of us have done it.
        On top of that Cannabis being illegal is making it extremely profitable for drug gangs, if it was taxed, controlled and legalised it would be a step towards taking power away from true criminals, getting more money into the economy and freeing up alot more police time to tackle true issues.
        Feel free to make a decision for yourself when it comes to this issue but I ask respectfully to allow other people to do the same, no one person should decide what is best and if you look hard at the scientific facts its logical to invest, develop and legalise cannabis.
        It's strange with this topic that people who have never tried it are so quick to condemn it, and a few review's i've read one in particular she said after she stopped smoking week she had alot of side-effects really wanted to ask was she like that before because it seems like psychosomatic.
        The problems that arise from cannabis use are not proven! and aren't that common I think the hype has alot of people using cannabis as a scape goat.
        If I can legally drink a bottle of vodka a day for the rest of my life why shouldn't I be allowed to have a spliff after work, Legal or not I accept the consequences of my actions and will continue to use it the way I do.

          Excellent value for money, a top of the range set of speaker worth every penny.

          As a complete music lover these speakers are worth every penny, I luckily managed to find mine priced at £120 so if you're looking for a set of bargain speakers to use with your computer then these aren't the speakers for you, you might as well start looking elsewhere. The price tag on the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Desktop Speaker System isn't for bargin hunters. the AV40 system is far from being the cheapest on the market, but you also have to consider what kind of person M-Audio is targeting with this product. The AV 40 carries the company's Studiophile moniker, meaning that they feel right at home within the confines of a music studio where they are favored by top producers, recording engineers and musicians around the world. After spending a few days with these speakers, I can definitely see why they are so renouned.
          the AV 40 comes with a pair of 20-watt speakers for a total output of 40 watts (1 + 1 = 2 lol), Although the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 is compatible with a computer or portable audio player, the stereo
          mini jack, RCA and TRS inputs make them work with just about any audio device assuming you don't need surround sound. These are a stereo (2-channel) audio system, not a 5.1 or 7.1. They're definitely built for music lovers or that beginning DJ with his mixer and turntables.
          Includes 4 polypropylene-coated woofers, very accurate base.
          3/4 ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeters for clear amazing quality highs, OptImage III tweeter wave guides bit technical for me but provides precision imaging for balanced stereo field & magnetic shielding which is perfect for multimedia & video work.
          Having had these speaker for 5 months now I can full assure anyone that these speakers now not so expensive while still on the dear side of £100 are very much value for money, they have never let me down and now i'm aware of the functions, hopefully fully that'll stop the noise complaints from next door.
          At least they couldn't say the music was muffled.

          A state of the art piece of technology just a little to expensive for my taste

          When i saw the new IPad I though "is this it?" I really like the Ipad's i think they're amazing but unlike the IPhone 4s the upgrades are fairly limited, When I first went and had a look I had to read the signs to find the new one nothing popped out at me to say new and improved.
          For ages I was hearing how amazing the retina screen was and how things just pop out the screen at you, it turns out the hype was all it was hype, while there was some difference it really just didn't do it for me, it has all the features you look for (5-megapixel iSight camera, 1080p HD video & A5X chip with quad-core graphics and with all that still quite a long battery life.)
          Speaking to someone else there I found I wasn't the only one with this opinion and im sure we weren't the only ones, there was a freshness to the images what wasn't there before but im not sure it's worth the upgrade as I found you really have to look for the differences sure there is a much better camera and hugely better graphics chip but after upgrading to the IPhone 4s I felt I had paid enough to apple and didn't want to pay out that much again just for the same upgrades I now had on my phone but with less appeal, the only appeal for me was the 4G capabilites but if an upgraded camera & better graphics chip is something that is important to you or if you need the lastest gadget out, honestly invest in the IPad 3 as you wont be disappointed unfortunately I couldn't justify the expense prehaps when I make my fortune I'll reconsider but im sure by then apple will rule the world anyhow.
          If your looking for an affordable alternative I would say take a look at the IPad 2 as it is much cheaper and you can barely tell the difference between the two.
          But dont take my review as a bad one the IPad 3 is an amazing piece of techonology just compared to the earlier version I felt it wasn't worth the extra money

            A great and refreshing tasting soft drink!

            I can't remember when my love for Coca-Cola began somewhere in my pre-teens like many broke teens i've tried the cheap alternatives and none compare or even come close, the best part is that they always try to improve, less sugar or with lemon these improvements are always a breath of freshness but always have that original great taste, the deep burgundy colour, the freshness of a cold coke on a hot day - nothing beats it.
            Of course it's one of the best mixers to go with almost any alcholic spirit, but one of the best uses for coca-cola has to be a study aid just for the fact you get that extra much needed boost when your slipping from the caffeine, I'm half sure it's what got me the A in my GCSE's instead of the B+'s.
            Whilst the variations of coca-cola are amazing nothing compares to the original you can definitely taste the difference between coca-cola & diet coke.
            Unfortunately because of the caffeine it can be slightly addictive but as a treat it becomes more special and I found myself enjoying it so much more, best to drink in moderation as too much can leave you feeling bloated and abit sick same as any fizzy drink.
            But as I haven't met anyone who hasn't tried coca-cola im confident it is a market leader for no reason, personally my favourite drink is sprite but in very close second is coca-cola original.
            Just lastly for an alcholic suggestion tequila and coca-cola is absolutely amazing and simply put should be tried.

            A fantastic piece of technology.

            I love my IPhone 4s not only does it make me feel a little cocky walking around with £500 in my hand but it scares the hell out of me when I drop it, It certainly doesn't look as impressive anymore with all the cracks but it's an amazing device.
            The main upgrades from the previous model's are the hugely improved camera, faster processor, even better graphics & the amazing yet confusing Siri voice recognition (try asking what siri's favourite colour is) that one spun me out quite alot.
            The IPhone 4S is almost idenctial in design to the IPhone 4 which annoyed quite a few people as they wanted the brand new design expected with the IPhone 5 but with all the improvments you can't deny it's a superior model It's basically a new spin on an old phone that will shock no-one but impress many.
            The Iphone 4S brought with it the world of iOS 5 the lastest upgrade of apples mobile operating systems which really did alot of good while sticking to its main fundamentals although as per usual the autocorrect is a point of ridicual once again from apple, with many websites dedicated to it's many disasters.
            The main realisation for me was growing up hardly anyone had a computer or mobile phone now it seems everyone has a tiny computer & mobile phone in one and no-one seems amazed by this child of the 90's here and keep thinking why isn't anyone else completely amazed by this.
            The Iphone 4S has alot more space and processing power compared to the earlier models, while being the sleekest model yet holds the classic apple design, its known world wide as one of the best smartphones on the market and although it's extremely expensive is very much worth every penny.
            I cannot think of a better phone to have in 2012 but we're halfway though the year and who knows what Apple holds for 2013 prehaps if your patient it would be better to wait for the next model rather then feel like you've spent a large amount and missed the next best thing.

            One of the best animated films I have ever seen!

            Coraline 2009 animated film is one of the best films i've ever seen probably the best animated film i've ever watched, written and directed by Henry Selick, I originally thought it was a Tim Burton film but was corrected after a long argument the other night.
            It has a long list of celebrity star's including Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, Dawn French & Jennifer Saunders.
            A brave, curious and inquisitive young girl walks through a secret door in their new house and discovers a parallel reality that is eerily similar to the life she already knows yet better in almost every way almost too good to be true the film is deeply unsettling in several different manners, in director Henry Selick's animated adaptation of Neil Gaiman's best-seller.
            Eleven-year-old Coraline (Dakota Fanning) is fearlessly courageous, and perhaps far too adventurous for her own good. Coraline and her parents (Teri Hatcher & John Hodgman) have recently relocated a new home leaving Coraline alone away from her friends and familar settings.
            Bored in her new home as her parents are busy with work and without any new friends, Coraline passes the time by exploring her new neighborhood while being followed and pestered then later befriended by an annoying local boy named Wybie . But after paying a visit to her eccentric neighbors Miss Spink and Miss Forcible (Jennifer Saunders & Dawn French), a pair of older eccentric british actresses, and crossing paths with the outright weird Mr. Bobinsky a circus preformer and mouse trainer, Coraline becomes convinced that her new surroundings are just as boring as she'd suspected.
            Shortly after Coraline discovers a hidden door in her new house and decides to investigate, Venturing into the eerie passageway inside, Coraline emerges into an alternate version of her own reality. At first glance, this strange new world seems even better than the real thing as there her parents are fun and care free try to fulfil her desires and Coraline is always the center of attention.
            The main difference between the original world and this eerie alternative is every person in this Better reality is everyone has button's for eyes.
            There's even a mysterious Cat that's fascinated by her every move. But when Coraline's button-eyed other mother attempts to make her stay permanent, the frightened young girl must summon her courage and resourcefulness in order to fight her way back home and save her real family.
            One of the best features of this film is the Music which makes this film so much more haunting beautiful yet scary for people of all ages, I downloaded the album afterwards just because the music itself has such a vibe about it while the animation is quite common it's the mix of storyline, music and animation in perfect sync that makes coraline a five star film, I can say without a doubt that this film will stay with me forever and many people who watch this film will say the same.
            I recommend this film for anyone who like's animated films or horrors just because its a perfect blend also the same reason why I highly suggest not letting children under the age of 12 watch it because it is very nightmarish especially for younger children.

              Great value for money I highly recommend for any music lovers out there

              I'm really bad for break headphones so I have to buy new ones every other month, These are my lastest purchase and for just £5 they were a complete bargin coming in several different colours including purple, clue, black & pink so it's very easy to match them to your mobile or MP3.
              The RadioPaq Flips in ear headphones are comfortable & easy to use with wide stereo sound and enhanced bass, because of the gel like earpieces they mould to your ear shape very easily they also have a noise-cancelling earpiece design which means they reduce outside environment noise with the option to change the gel like bud ends whilst you are using them without blasting your music to people around you, quite useful if your slyly using them in work.
              Optimised for MP3's, IPod's, IPhone's and portable gaming if you want crystal clear sound whilst listening to music then these are the headphones for you.
              They have the usual 3.5mm stereo jack plug that fits into your Apple iPods and any other MP3 players.
              So far they have proved extremely durable and I get amazing sound quality for all types of music from dubstep to heavy rock.
              I absolutely love these headphones and recommend them to any music lovers on a budget.
              My only bother was the wire being a little too long for me and occasionally catching under my knee when i bend down but im quite short myself for a bloke so it may just be me.
              For the money i've spent i'm very happy with my purchase.
