I've meant to put this up for a while. I have a recommendation for anyone out there with vouchers burning a hole in their pocket or someone who needs new headphones. These are the badboys to get: The Sennheiser PX100 headphones.
I've used them for years and, despite no cheque from Sennheiser, think that anyone out there who is looking to get a decent set of headphones should definitely snaffle a pair. They even come with a little sturdy case that they fold into. Very handy for the oul' holidays where you inevitably stand on them in the dusky half-light after a skinful of questionably legal cocktails and a skin-blistering session in the sun. They're about 50 quid in Tower - which is dear-ish I suppose if you're used to getting those pink gel bud ones for a tenner - but you'll get them for half that on eBay.
I was reminded about doing this post last night when someone told me my headphones looked like something from the 80s. That's endorsement enough, methinks. Everyone loves the 80s. Reagan, Cold War, Predator. Hilarious stuff.
Now go get all the albums on my end-of-year list and listen to 'em on these. Do it.
