This review is from: Seiko 5 Black Dial Black Canvas Strap Automatic Mens Watch SNK809K2
Pros: Small, comfortable, accurate. A nice entry to the automatic market. With proper care and occasional maintenance, will provide a lifetime of timekeeping. Looks good, has a nice, simple, easy to read military style face. The lume is also pretty good, but not great.
Cons: Small. The watch band is cheap and you'll likely replace it immediately. Also, the band is SMALL. If you have large(r) wrists you won't be able to wear this without a new band. The 18mm lugs work GREAT with a NATO style watch Strap.
Other Thoughts: While this *is* a Seiko 5 watch, it is a smaller watch than their standard for the US. I read a review elsewhere that this kind of model is marketed in Asia to teens as a unisex item, but aside from the smaller size, this looks a LOT like a standard, basic, quality military watch.
If you're looking for a good quality automatic watch with clean looks, that's not the usual "over-sized" style, this is a great watch to have. Wore for 3 months straight and the watch kept near- perfect time. Pair it with a NATO, NATO-G10, or a Zulu style watch strap, and you've got a great, tough, water resistant automatic watch perfect for active people (hikers, bikers, walkers, campers) that won't break the bank, or look too ostentatious.
Pros: Good sound definition, good quality sound, good frequency range, and low enough impedance to grant good volume. Mids and highs are pretty good. Good build quality, I like the cloth wrapped wire.
Cons: The bass is a little muddy, and not as deep as I'd like, but I'd expect that in this price range and driver size. The wires do transmit sound into your ears, but that's the price you pay for noise-isolating ear buds.
Other Thoughts: I consider myself an audiophile. I got these at a steep discount from Newegg. These headphones are NOT amazing but they ARE FAR BETTER than several other headphones and buds in the same price range, IMHO.
I recently lost all my headphones in a house flood, so I bought several, from different makers, including these, which arrived last. They are better than the others, and I'll make them my main carry for the time being. Arrived poorly and cheaply packed in a clear plastic baggie that just said "Altec Lansing." Later full price units ought to come in boxes with a carry bag/case. If not, I'd be disappointed.
This review is from: Logitech Gray 985-000227 Ultimate Ears 200 Noise Isolating Earphones
Pros: These ear buds actually do deliver as promised. They feel comfortable, isolate you from much outside noise, and they sound really good with a straight signal. The sound clarity is very good, and the timbre of specific instruments is preserved. These buds are not "muddy." These sound great for the money, and I'm really pleased with this purchase.
Sensitivity is also pretty good- they sound plenty loud.
Cons: The bass is a little weak, but still good. The wire does transmit sound into your buds- meaning if you're moving or something is rubbing against the wire, you can hear it in your ear.
Other Thoughts: I had a flood in my basement, and I needed to buy several replacement headphones for music listening. This was one of them. I consider myself an audiophile, and while these weren't "perfect," they were excellent for what I paid.READ FULL REVIEW
