    I would definitely be interested if you do that. Been wanting a good perlon strap for ages but there don't seem to be any decent comparisons around at all, just lots of opinions about whether Eulit...

    Had a bit of a double-take there. That's a Vacheron? Under £600. Oh, wait.

    Interesting, hadn't heard of that one, but then I never liked sports games or joystick-waggling, so I may have simply ignored it. Looks like Karateka by Jordan Mechner, which definitely used...

    There are two Commodores in that list and the statement could apply to either :)

    That distinction is debatable, but fair enough.



    That was probably the most common MSX in the UK, but not the only one. I had a Sony. I suppose if you included all the MSX makers the list would...

    Only just 80s, but yeah, Nintendo should probably be on that list. They were never as big in the UK as they were in the US until the Gameboy came out though. I've got a NES now, largely out of an...

    Sadly, but perhaps predictably, MSX isn't even in the list :(

    I did have a ZX81 before that though. Mazogs is probably one of the most under-appreciated games of all time.

    I've always quite liked the single yellow hand on the Damasko DA36. Perhaps too subtle? I think the fact it's not all yellow makes it, counterintuitively, both more striking and subtler at the same...

    Not exactly a brand per se, but I'd go for a modded Seiko 5. A Fifty Five Fathoms would be my choice, but there are other valid options.

    Ah, OK. In that case you may be as well with the 250ohm. If in doubt, check the manual for impedance recommendations. Google isnít saying much about that amp. It sounds OK, although Iím not sure how...

    Unless you are planning to use them with a specific amp, go for the lower ohms. Beyerdynamic are the ones that offer at least 3 different ohm-rated versions of each headphone (the 32ohm version is...

    CWC leather NATOs - any good?

    I tried a cheapy leather NATO a couple of years ago and it wasn't very good at all, so I've stuck to nylon since. I just got a Tanner Bates one and it's actually pretty good, albeit relatively...
