"OK FOR THE PRICE PAID"

I brought these headphones from Argos, because they were in a sesion sale. If I had been specificaly looking for a pair of headphones I would have been pretty disapointed.
They are not all bad though. Good points include the fact they are small and light and cheap. They contain clear consice instructions and are easy to set up. However the perfomance is really very poor. This is particularly disapointing considering the peddigree of the makers. They do come in handy when the wifes in bed and I want to watch TV, but you can only take the background buzzing for so long.
I recomend spending a bit more for a better product. I have also spotted these in a number of sales in the last few months.

    This review was decent, but it could have done with lots more information. How much did you pay for them, how big were they, what were they like in different areas, e.g. sound quality, volume, comfort?
