Sony MDR-EX76LP 20/12/2009

Slim Stylish Sony

Sony MDR-EX76LP Hi there, I have decided to write a review about Sony’s earphone MDR-EX76LP The Manufacturer In 1946, two Japanese gentlemen, Akio Morita and Masaru had a business that was called Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo, which is interpreted as Tokyo Telecommunication Engineering Company. Morita and Ibuka earned a living by repairing radios and manufacturing voltmeters. They later became the founders of Sony, which is a household brand. Did you know the word sonus, meaning sound in Latin and also the term sonny boy that was used in America, which mean bright youngster, is what was put together to create the name Sony. The Design Sony’s MDR-EX76LP is an in-ear design; the earphone goes in the ear rather than covering the ears, which are called headphones but most people tend to mix the names. The earphones is pushed a few millimetres into the ear canal, this helps prevents external noise coming in whilst listen to the sound coming from the earphones. The reason for this design of the earphones, it gives yourself and people around you some privacy. You can enjoy listening to your classics and the way the earphones fit in your canal, people would not have to hear music they do not like. Unless you turn the volume up so loud that it’s clearly heard by people around you but this is very bad for your ears. The disadvantage to these types of earphones is that you may not hear something that was important. For example, when the phone rings or whilst crossing ...

Sony's hook

Sony MDR-KX70LWW This review is about Sony’s earphone MDR-KX70LWW The Manufacturer Sony was founded by Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka in 1946. They were always designing and manufacturing new electronics. One of their first innovations was the automatic rice cooker that was successful. Morita and Ibuka earned a living by repairing radios and manufacturing voltmeters. They were originally called Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo, which is interpreted as Tokyo Telecommunication Engineering Company. Now they are called the by the well known name, Sony. The word Sony is derived from a couple of places.

For many years now, Sony is a household name, everywhere you go, Sony is there. CD player in the living room, television in the bedroom, DVD player in the car, mobile phones in your pocket and more.

More and more Sony’s earphone seem to be changing its design to the hybrid silicone ear buds. It is to feel like tailored fit so it feels comfortable.

The Three Little Pigs - Ian Beck 31/10/2009

One little piggie, two little piggies, three little piggies

The Three Little Pigs - Ian Beck The Three Little Pigs Hi, this review is about the children’s story book The Three Little Pigs. The copy I have chosen is illustrated by Ian Beck. Published on 4th April 2002, by OUP, Oxford. Ian Beck, born in Brighton, 1947; is a popular illustrator and author. Beck has illustrated numerous children’s books and he is famous for the Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album cover he illustrated. Millions of copies of his books are sold worldwide. The story is a classic children’s fantasy of three little pigs moving away from home and building their own to live in. Each chose their own material of hay, wood, or brick. It is to show how much effort and time they put into their goal. Another character is the big bad wolf that comes along and is feeling hungry. Pork is on the menu. Each pig hides in their own home, can the wolf manages to get what he wants? This is for you to read if you do not know the story already. The Three Little Pigs is one of many children stories that I have know since I was very little and it has stuck on my mind. It is a very exciting story and so simple. Ian Beck re-tells the story in a 24 pages illustration with humour and charm. The retail price is £5.99 but on amazon.co.uk, it can be purchased for £4.49 (31/10/09). It is excellent to read to children at school or to your own children at bedtimes. Thanks for reading.

Sony MDR-EX33LP 17/10/2009

Sony's pearls

Sony MDR-EX33LP Hi, this review is about Sony’s earphone MDR-EX33LP. Manufacturer Two Japanese men, Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka worked together from when they were young. Their lives were always designing and manufacturing new electronics. One of their first innovations was the automatic rice cooker that was successful. They were originally called Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo, which is interpreted as Tokyo Telecommunication Engineering Company. These men made a living by repairing radios and manufacturing voltmeters. Later, after many successes, they founded the company Sony in 1946. Sony has an excellent meaning that suits well for Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuke. Sony is made from two parts; the word sonus, meaning sound in Latin and also the term sonny boy that was used in America, which mean bright youngster is what was put together. Sony has been a household name for many years and I believe it will continue for a very long time. Everywhere you go, Sony is there. There are hundreds of cameras, thousands of television, millions of mobile phones and they are a reliable brand. Design The Sony’s MDR-EX33LP is an in-ear design; instead of covering the ears, the earphone goes in the ear. The earphones is pushed a few millimetres into the ear canal, this helps prevents external noise coming in whilst listen to the sound coming from the earphones. There are many colours to choose from. You can buy this earphone in green, blue, gold, silver, white, or pink. The green ones are my ...

AKG K 340 06/10/2009

Short but does the job

AKG K 340 Hi, this review is about AKG K340 earphones. Manufacturer Dr Rudolf Goerike and Ernst Pless are the founders of AKG in 1947, Vienna. They celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2007. AKG are now one of the leading manufacturers of high quality microphones, headphones and wireless equipment. AKG is used by many radio and TV stations including BBC, opera houses, recording studios and famous stages. Design The design is an in-ear headphone, the earphone goes in the ear rather than covering the ears. The earphones is pushed a few millimetres into the canal like an ear plug, this helps prevents external noise coming in whilst listen to the sound coming from the earphones. Without the cable, the earphone weigh a super light-weight of 3 grams. Most other earphone average 5 grams. The cable is only 1 meter long; this is short in my opinion but it is 99.9% oxygen free. It comes with a standard gold plate jack, which is inserted to mps players, laptops and any other 3.5mm socket. There are two version of the K340. One is the liquorice and the other is the fudge. Same slick metallic design but it has unique colours. Moving away from the common black and white. It also has an inline volume control. Lets you adjust the volume without the hassle of getting your music player out of the bag or your pocket. Sound Quality Many new earphone have a frequency range of 5 – 24,000 Hz, but the AKG K340, the frequency is 11.5-23 Hz. Not as wide but it does the job. ...

Sennheiser OMX 95 VC Style II 21/08/2009

Give your ear the clip

Sennheiser OMX 95 VC Style II Hi, this review is about Sennheiser’s OMX 95 VC Style II earphones. Manufacturer It started by Dr. Fritz Sennheiser, who started a manufacturing company of tube voltmeter in 1945 called the Labor W (Laboratorium Wennebostel) or Lab W for short. The company produced a variety of microphones, they created a mixing amplifier, miniature headphone in the 1950s, and miniature transformers as used in hearing aids. In the 60s, the company produce answering machines and baby monitors. Sennheiser is a worldwide company and now has many plants in the UK, USA, France, Germany, Japan and many more.

It helps prevent the earphones from popping out your ear by attaching to your ear. The in-ear design is basically for the earphones to be pushed a few millimetres into the ear canal rather than covering the whole ear like the headphone. This helps ambient sound from distracting you when listening to your music. Downside with in-ear designs is that by wearing the earphones for a long period of time can cause a slight ache of the ears. It comes with a 1.2 meter long cable, which should be long enough from your ears to your waist – ...

Sony MDR-EX35LP 20/07/2009

Listen with Sony

Sony MDR-EX35LP Sony MDR-EX35LP Hi, this review is about Sony MDR-EX35LP earphone. The brand Sony is very popular with their high standards quality products. It is very rarely heard of that their products become faulty... beside Playstations. This earphone has a neat and tidy design. It is slim and simple but not so stylish. That does not really matter as when do you get someone checking your earphones. Most of them looks practical the same. In the Sony website (http://www.sony.co.uk/product/hip-ex-series/mdr-ex35lp), there is an option of white, red and black colour. But elsewhere, for example ebay, there are colours available in pink, blue and gold... mainly from Hong Kong. There is no additional extension cord but the cord is long enough with a length of 1.2m. There is a slider so you could adjust the length and also it helps prevent tangling. There is not pouch or case that you could put this in. It comes with 3 different sizes of silicone rubber ear buds. There are obviously small, medium and large. Same colour as the packet it comes in. So you cannot mix unless you buy them. The rubber helps prevent the earphone from slipping out. These are becoming very popular technology. It is comfortable to wear as it feels like is fits perfectly by expanding inside your ear. It is to block out sound around you and let you enjoy your music straight from the player. But the downside is that you have to be careful when crossing traffic. You might not clearly hear on coming traffic. ...

Denon AH-C 452 08/07/2009

Wonderful to the ears

Denon AH-C 452 Hi, this review is about Denon AH-C452 In-Ear Headphone. This may not be a popular high street brand but the quality is very high. It provides clearer sound by shutting off external sound. It is designed with accoustic optimising technology, that it adjust the sound pressure balance in front of and behind the diaphragm. It also comes with 3 pairs of detactable ear buds for comfortable fit. They are in 3 different sizes. It helps block out ambient noise and so you could just hear the nice music and not the traffic. The ear bud feels like it expand in your ear like the classic polymer foam ear plugs you use to protect your ears from loud nois. This earphone has a frequency response 5 - 24,000 Hz , which is more than enough. The earphone comes in either black or grey. Quite stylish but look does not really matter as the quality is most important. The cable is 1.3 metres long, which comes with a pouch, unless you wrap is round the mp3 player. It is compatible with ipod and iphone with its 3.5 mm gold-plated stereo mini plug. There is an 0.8m extension cable. Mainly for when you are on the move like running. So the earphone have enough reach to your ears from your pocket area (waist), without it popping out when you move. Date: 08/07/09 Currently on ebay these earphones are going for an average of £59.26 On the apple website it is being sold for £58.95 It might not be everyone but you could tell the quality difference for some extra cash. Thanks for ...

Bandai Power Rangers Mystic Training Set - Green Ranger 27/06/2009

Go Go Green Ranger

Bandai Power Rangers Mystic Training Set - Green Ranger This is a little review on a toy set I bought for my nephew. A Power Rangers set. It comes from the popular kids tv programme Power Rangers. This series, which I believe is series 12 is called The Mystic Force. A group of teenages mainly from Australia who comes together with special powers to fight evil. These teenages have their own fighting costume and colour. This serie was first air in the US in 2006 on ABC. My nephew favourite is the green ranger. So obviously I bought the green power ranger set. Xander Bly is the characters name of the green mystic power ranger. He is played by Richard Brancatisano. Xander Bly has the power of the green mystic minotaur. The Power Rangers Mystic training set comes with a mask. The green ranger mask. It is in the shape of a minotaur in green. The elastic sting does slowly become loose when played too much. As when its been pulled too much. So the mask does not stay on as easily. But this can be solved by shortening the string by tying it. Its a one size mask that fits all. There is plenty of eye view as you can see in the picture. There is also a little cape. It is like a shouder armour at the front with a cape attached to it at the back. It comes with a magic staff, to destroy evil monsters or anything my nephew run at. And also a morpher. The power rangers use this to change from a normal human to the super hero power ranger. This make noises by pushing the buttons. This is a great present as it lets ...

L'Oreal Studio FX Remix 19/05/2009

Look at me l'oreal

L'Oreal Studio FX Remix L’OREAL – Studio Remix The review is about a hair product that I have been using for over 5 years. It is the L’Oreal Studio Remix. It is not a hair spray, not gel or putty. It is the fibre paste version. It is good for short hair and up to 6 inches. I do not have my hair longer than that so I cannot say if it is good for hair that is longer but I am sure it is. It is sticky when you put it on your hand but it washes off very easily. The smell of it is very nice. I am smelling it now, I cannot compare it to other smells. Why not smell it next time you come across it. This product allow you to repeatedly remould the style of your hair and let it stay that way. But too many remoulding can wear out the strength, so sometimes your hair could be flat by the end of day. The shorter your hair the longer the strength last as it does not have to hold too much weight. I would say this product is brilliant for manga (Japanese animation) hair style. Which is the look of natural spiked, wavy, messy but cool look. Packaging The product comes in a recyclable plastic small round tub of white and light blue. The brand logo and name of product is on the top of the lid. On the side it has the ingredients and barcode. The one I have now do not have instructions. I have never realised if it did but I do not need instructions. It also gives you their more advice website. www.lorealstudioline.com Content Inside is the fibre paste, as I said that it sticky but smells nice. It ...
