Excellent price for these headphones.

Not to everyone's taste but if you've been looking at these (like I have been) then this is a great deal.

5% Quidco too.

I've not seen them instore (Glasgow Argyle Street), seems to apply to quite a few on the website.

Reviews don't look too good:What HiFi - Sony MDR XB500



I know, that one is pretty poor but I've read far too many user reviews which are quite specific on points which are important to me.

Comfort, sound isolation and that use of a graphic equaliser calms to bass and produces a much more precise sound.

I was looking for solid bass without losing clarity (something which I've only achieved with my Ultimate Ears 'in ear' headphones.

These are very much 'Marmite' headphones based on what's said online. Only ordered mine yesterday but for £29.99 they'll have to be utter garbage for me to be unhappy!

I'll report back when mine arrive in any case.

I have a pair of these, they are great for watching movies with a media player music sounds reasonable but hey really do leak sound badly

Cheers Andi, am planning on using them in the house when I'm on my own during the day so noise leakage is ok. Have seen that said a few times, presume that is linked to the volume (not that it leaks massively even at low volume)?

Whilst I remember!
Would you buy them for £29.99?

Orders won't go through anymore guys. Says they are looking for an alternative source for a day or two and then the order will be automatically cancelled with a "item discontinued" message. was looking forward to gett these too!
