I bought the bolt version of these about two years ago when they dropped to £15 and they were until I bought some Hi-Res earphones recently the best I had ever owned. The bolt version was the best design to be honest and I can see why these monstrociites never sold well. I would not want to be seen outside wearing them! I have just bought the last few available from Amazon at £2.99 each and they are now sold out so this is the best price for these that I can see at present. My advice would be to cut off the heads and tidy them up with a bit of Sugru or something. You will not get better sound quality for the money.

£70 RRP? You're having a laugh
No....just no!

Thanks for sharing - ideal for those who want the 'snake from the ear' look

It's actually a great deal compared to RRP, so heat added on that basis!
They sound as though they'd actually be pretty decent, but wowsers, I couldn't wear those outside!

Description blurb says:
Offering a unique, optical illusion, the Musical Fidelity Quarkie Earphones are eye catching earphones with a viper head tip. The unique custom made ear tips come in four different sizes for the perfect noise isolating seal, so you can immerse yourself in high quality sound.

  • Unique custom-made, high quality eartips, in four sizes: XS, S, M, L, give perfect ear canal seal for top performance and enjoyment
  • Excellent external noise isolation
  • 13.5mm hi-tech driver with exclusive aluminum voice coil and neodymium magnet
  • High sensitivity, low distortion and amazing bass performance
Loved the review you linked... heat added
holy crap

1) what's the del charge since free del is only £10 +

2) why the hell would you want a snake's head sticking out of each ear, even if I paid you lol

Thanks though, 13.5mm neodymium magnet was compelling at least!
