I had really high hopes - they look great with "rosewood" like housings, nice cables, good wee pouch and as always, great packaging. However, in comparison to the EP-B40 also reviewed here,they lack "weight" in the presentation. They are very comfortable and light though. Amazon says:

Two timber-clad villas – one dark and the other silvery grey – balance over a steep hillside on the Swedish island of Lidingö, in these intricately rendered visuals of the project by Ström Architects.
The British studio led by Magnus Ström designed the two dwellings, named Pyrus 9 and Pyrus 10, for the property developer Imola Förvlatning.
The imagery released to accompany the proposal is the latest in a series of photo-realistic renderings of Ström Architects' future projects and was created by 3D visualisation studio nu.ma.
The two almost-identical villas will be differentiated by their cladding and interiors, with one featuring blackened-timber cladding both inside and out, and the other ashy-grey.
The slightly larger of the two houses will be covered in the black-stained wood, while the smaller house will have the shell of lighter-toned wood.
"The two villas share a common design language, yet they have their own identity," explained Ström.
While each property will be three storeys tall, the hillside plot means just a small portion of the upper floor will be visible from the street, where two driveways will be separated by a low board-marked concrete wall and framed by planted borders.
But at the northern end of the site the full scale of the two rectilinear blocks will be exposed, where they cantilever out over a small concrete wall.
A tiered garden set between the two properties will step up in the centre to screen patios adjoining the glazed living spaces and guest bedrooms. These will be located on the top floor of each home, alongside an entrance hall and cloakroom.
Ström Architects, which ranked 126 on Dezeen Hot List, frequently works with highly skilled architectural visualisers such as nu.ma and The Boundary on their projects.
Earlier this year the studio completed a retirement home in the English countryside, a project that Henry Goss of The Boundary created atmospheric renderings of back in 2014
This is really good! Now only about £25 on Amazon, but has the sound of most £150 units, Bose, JBL etc. Beautifully made, heavily built, sounds incredible - only lacks a fitted case which, if in brown rather, would be incredible, moulded would be acceptable in matt-black - AUKEY, add one now!
Impressively small, plectrum shaped device that both transmits from the headphone output of any device, iPhone, TV etc to your Bluetooth headphones. Again, as with my earlier review, there is a small time delay (latency) though less with this device. None-the-less, very useful - it receives too, so you can pump the sound from your iPad / iPhone (other devices / manufacturers are available!) through a non-Bluetooth enabled stereo or car-stereo.
Two lightweight, durable mini flashlights with different colours, black and gunmetal, offering great value. Bright light beam with zoom slider to focus on objects at distances up to 50m (164ft) or spread light over a wider area; 3 lighting patterns (strong-weak-flash), respectively for complete illumination, power saving and attention attraction.
Durable: with tough, water resistant (to IPX4 standard) aluminum alloy material, the torch is designed for use in heavy rain, snow or extreme conditions. In addition, its lifespan is about 100,000 hours. Surprisingly compact and lightweight for such a solidly built flashlight, always handy to have around. Also with a removable clip, can be clipped on to a belt hook or pocket
Thoughtfully, includes 2no AA Batteries, User Manual, and 24-Month Warranty Card
So, new iBook owners (not me yet), you only have ONE USB Type C port for all your USB connections - you NEED this! Well made, Apple-ish looks, would be much nicer if the cable was thinner and more flexible, but it's light and easy to stow for connections on the move.
AUKEY Condenser Microphone with Stand and Volume Control, Broadcasting Recording Studio Mic for Laptops, Desktop Computers and Cell Phone
This looks good, easy to set-up, with a stable wee tripod for desk use. I'll report on the sonics when I've finished setting up my office / studio (yes, I've said that before!)
This is stuff I like, old and new, that I hope you do too.
