Is that Jeff Goldblum?

Excellent earphones. Just reserved a spare pair at Argos. Well worth a fiver, and cheaper than the fakes on eBay.

Better than the EP-630's?

I've had a pair of these and a pair of the new versions, these are better my far, durable and have a really superb sound compared to other earphones of a similar price

haha i had these in my basket at 9am. thought id reserved and just checked to see i didnt hit the button and now thru ukhd.. they all sold out! typical

Thanks OP, unfortunately out of stock at all local stores

any good for running in or do they fall out

Bought 2 pairs, thanks

Quick review to help anybody; Had these for over a year (maybe even 2), they are insanely durable and perfect for running. Bass is surprisingly good and the sound quality is great (for the price), I would go as far to say they compare with my flatmates £65 headphones (believe it or not.)

Typical Argos down...8am they say

bought a pair ages ago for a tenner, the 1button mic is appallingly bad quality (both mic quality and the button itself, mine gave out and kept pausing/resuming songs at random till i deliberately broke the button open) but the sound quality was pretty good with great bass and the earbuds were extremely comfortable and well-fitting (came with 3 sets IIRC). lost them on a night out a few weeks ago, most headphones i buy (including the sennheisers i usually get) tend to get caught on something and lose sound to one ear but these lasted me 2 years.

great for the price !

edit - seems these have no in-line mic but otherwise identical to ones i owned. given the mic was **** for anything other than skipping tracks and tetchy at that it's no concern.

How's sound quality?That's all I care about.

good. i went from a pair of sennheiser cx-300 II's to these when the former lost sound in one ear after a year. these aren't as good especially on spoken word but had nice bass and were better than any sub-£10 pair i've ever tried (i got the inline mic ones for a tenner). earbuds were really comfy and well-fitting too, the crappy HMV (jack & cable) ones i have got to replace them cost me a fiver and the sound isn't remotely as good plus they can't stay in my ear at all.

How do these compare with the the Xiaomi Piston 3?

Wonder how these compare to the Panasonic RP-HJE125E which to me are the best sub £10 headphones hands down - unique comfort design on the ear fitting, sound quality, etc?

Great headphones I would Defo recommend getting some decent foam tips like these to get the best out of them. argos.co.uk/m/s…htm?CMPID=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59158%7Ccid:200217410%7Cagid:12488198090%7Ctid:pla-169007176850%7Ccrid:66128550170%7Cnw:g%7Crnd:16188000212589729953%7Cdvc:m%7Cadp:1o2&gclid=CNfk5aO1vc0CFeQp0wodOlsP-w

thanks OP - just ordered. Heat.

Exactly what I was wondering. The Panasonic set can be had for about £5.54 from Amazon, so I'd probably lean more towards them.

Still available in Swadlincote ...

You can't go far wrong for £4.99, if they turn out to be slightly more crap than you expected, it doesn't really matter. Its not like buying an expensive pair, and finding they are only marginally better than a crap pair.

I bought a pair of these - wasn't impressed at all
Someone can have mine for a couple of quid, once i'd given them a decent test i knew they didn't cut it for me and they haven't been used since
Given that pistons start around £3-4 these are cheap (quality wise) plasticky rubbish by comparison

boo, oos in my 2 nearest stores

Same Price on Amazon

Showing in stock at my local store but the site won't allow me to proceed to checkout to pay. I tried several browsers but no joy.

Life is simpy to short, I went to amazon and bought them for the same price! Whole process took 20 seconds!
