Looking for gifts for music lovers? Then why not gift them E1 earphones. Beautifully made and comfortable enough to wear all day, these headphones will help them enjoy their music even more. The headphones come with interchangeable earphone tips for 'the' perfect fit and the cables are 'two-toned' to easily differentiate left from right. The cables are tangle-resistant, lightweight nylon cords and the in-ear earphones offer up to 12 hours of continuous play. Mr.H liked the way you can personalise the sound (the EarPrint Technology used in the earphones). He found the fit comfortable and the sound quality pretty good. The carrying case is a bonus. The only improvement he would love to see is a reduction in the size of the controller. Overall, a really good earphone.
