Saw these on the Gadget show on telly last week - they reviewed them and that baldy bloke said they were fantastic! They poke right in your ears and silence the world around you, and have a good amount of bass apparently.

Anyway, here's the spec on Play.com:

The Goldring GX200 headphones are high quality intra-aural (in-ear) headphones for the most demanding ears on the move. Constructed from only the finest high quality materials these are perfect for the commute, travelling, the gym or on holiday, just plug into your iPod / MP3 Player or any portable audio device using the 3.5mm jack connector and enjoy.
The patented Comply canal tips (included with the GX200 earphones) constructed from memory foam, expand to create a comfortable seal within the ear. The tips are three times softer than skin and offer unprecedented levels of noise reduction and comfort. Escape the drone of background noise and enjoy your music in tranquility! Alternatively these phones are also supplied with soft silicone buds, in small, medium and large sizes - for optimum fit. The Goldring headphones boast a 1m cable and a stylish protective carry case.

When you compare the Goldring GX200 earphones you'll be amazed at the sheer quality of audio these produce. The What Hi-Fi? headphone review in October 2007 stated the GX-200s were "Bargain buds! ...open and enjoyable, with bags of bass to boot."

Great earphones though some people have found them to be a little fragile but mine are still fine after a couple of years :)
#2
Yeah i've had 2 pairs, one broke and the other one is on the way out. Does anyone know if im able to send them back if its been less than 90days/6months/1year?
#3
Just ordered a pair for spares. Don't really need them but couldn't refuse at that price.

Thanks

I had a pair, took them travelling and one of the lines to the earbuds snapped off so I emailed Goldring direct, sent my broken ones back and had a new pair within 48 hours.

I got these from play in December for 17.99 - they sound great and have excellent bass. At this price they're a steal
#6
Gone for a pair as spares, thanks.
#7
Can anyone compare these against the Seinhausser CX500's?

Tempted to get a pair of these as my CX's are on their last legs
#8
Does anyone know if these fit the 2g iphone without the need for a stupid adaptor?
#9
build quality of these is terrible.
they break very easily
#10
I have had two pairs, and sent both back because they broke within weeks. Poor build quality and I wan't impressed with the sound quality either. Certainly didn't sound any better than my sennheiser CX300s
#11
Got a pair in December.....very good.

Invest in a cable winder is my only advice.
#12
If you use the ear buds, granted they only last about 4/5 months with everyday use, but they block out nearly all other noise for me, even commuting on the train, can't hear a thing, which is perfect.

Indeed, built quality isn't the best but I think they have tried to make them uber light so the cable is tiny, plus they come with a leater case to store them so if you use that they wil stay in good nic.
#13
Here's a more recent review: http://whathifi.com/Review/Goldring-GX200/
Although whathifi did review them at £50 instead of the 15 they cost from play. I'm tempted to replace my [email protected] with these, having been impressed with my Goldring NS1000 headphones.
#14
Shoddy build quality is no good for me as I don't treat mine well at all, I just stuff them in bags/pockets...well, anywhere really. That said, my CX300s are still going strong 3 years after buying them.

Good price if you're prepared to take care of these though, I can't praise noise-blocking earphones highly enough, especially if you use them on public transport.
#15
my pair lasted around 6 months. the build quality is very poor, which is a shame considering as far as noise isolation goes, they're the best i've had. price is good though, so heat from me.

Surely no one pays £40 for earphones.
#17
better off with cx300

I paid £150 for my headphones. Well, that's a lie, they were reduced £100 to £50, but yeah.

I spent £100 on my Senn's HD595 ... but then they are a different kettle of fish.

This deal is very good. They are easier to wear out and about than the Shure's that Play had a while ago.
#20
I thought they were good value at £17.99 - now they are even cheaper! The comply memory foam earplugs are great and I like the screw-on fit. I've always been a bit uncomfortable with other ear buds as I tend to stick them in quite far.
#21
another vote for them being poorly built. I got a set when given free with the what hi-fi subscription - hardly ever use them and still the cable has come loose and one of the earpieces detached itself from the housing. Not great.

the look genuine to me, but don't take my word for it!!

i brought some for about £9 a year ago and they were definitely fakes! not worth it for your ears sake! i'd rather spend £500 on earphones than be deaf.....
#30
lots of fake cx300s but they are still pretty nice \0/
#31
Well, 9 squid does sound rather cheap
fingers crossed then.....
#32
good price, I use them on a daily basis and they' sound very good from although im not specialst. Especcialy when used with Comply foams they eliminate any noise.

BTW anybody knows here to get the Comply foams?

i ordered these and received them yesterday, i am very sure i am putting them in my ears the wrong way. As im used to the creative ep-830 which you have to stick right through your ear like most in-ear earphones. But how do i put these ones in, cause right now the sound quality is very poor and very quite, i think im putting them in wrong, HELP!
#34
I got mine yesterday and I have to say they are terrible! I've had a couple of different in-ear headphones including Etymotic ER6i, Shure E2C and Sony EX70 so I am used to fitting them to get the right sound. But these Goldrings are bass heavy and very thin through the mid range. I'm going to run them in over the weekend to see if they improve, but I expect I will be returning them for a refund.

yea after more trying to get it to fit properly, it still didn't. So i put in the grey silicon canal tips, which did improve fit and quality, but they look ugly and are still way worse than the CX300's/400's/500's and Creative Ep-830's. So im getting a refund.
