Digital Cameras & Sennheiser Earphones

26 posts in this topic

Just thought to make two topics in one for ease.

Firstly, what's a good camera to purchase with, say about, 14 megapixels between £100-150? Need to buy for someone. Had the Canon IXUS 130, but it's sooo slow to focus and capture images despite the good reviews.

Secondly, those that use Sennheiser earphones, do you find that they break easily or do I seem to continually be buying fakes? I've probably been through about 2-3 pairs each year for the past 5 or so years. Ridiculous.

I always find the headphones break at the jack always, wire will come out from excess stretching. This is a design fault.

Been thorugh stupid amount of pairs of Sennheisers.

They do 1 year warranty so I shipped 9 pairs back and got 1 back with the cash equivalent for the rest. Customer service was v. helpful.

On the subject of cameras...

I want a good Canon SLR, budget is about £300-£400, prefer something not too used witha a lens or too...

I've never had many problems with my sennheisers but ive never used them constantly.

If u are breaking them so often maybe it's time to change brand. Bose?

I've literally gone through 20 pairs of CX300'a in the past 5 years. I thought they'd improve the build quality with the Mark II's but I'm on my 3rd pair now.

It's either one ear stops working or the earphone shell breaks exposing the wiring.

Daamn. Didn't make use of the warranty. Thrown out all pairs.

I'm reluctant to switch to another brand unless I get a number of recommendations.

Any thoughts on a digital camera?

i will no longer buy any headphones over £20. its just a waste.. they always break, cut, or one ear stops working. the best earphones ive had was some boog name i bought from a chinese website. They werent imitations, just a chinese brand and they turned out to be the best ive ever had. lasted 2 yrs until the one ear f*ck up virus got to them. cant remember the site to buy new ones :( all you beats guys will be crying 13 months from now when they start to die one you and no warranty cover! its a scam

The best way is to spend a proper amount on a quality pair of headphones. They shouldnt break n last a while... in ear im guessing u mean though.

http://www.comet.co.uk/p/Digital-Cameras/buy-PANASONIC-DMC-FS9EB-K-Digital-Camera/617024

12 MP and 5X optical zoom for £80, I can't argue.

http://www.comet.co.uk/p/Digital-Cameras/buy-NIKON-COOLPIX-S3100S-Digital-Camera/714240

14 MP with 5X optical zoom, Nikon this time

both of these don't have that annoying delay You get when You take pics with certain other cameras and have to hold the pose - takes pic when You press button.

can I ask why 14MP though, unless You intend to print bigger than A1?

It's either one ear stops working or the earphone shell breaks exposing the wiring.

Likewise. They are good headphones, they will just randomly stop working after a year or so. Thing is there so cheap you feel no way to cop another pair. May invest in something more quality next time,

just don't buy in ear. buy a full sized pair that are good quality and they won't break. that is all.

I got some Sennheiser HD201 for christmas and recently the jack was playing up. I proceeded to purchase a new jack plug, cut the end of the old one then strip, sand and solder the wires onto it, It now works.

Had I know about warranty I would have just sent them back.

How do you change tracks on that? I wouldn't mind a black version to it.
