Hey DarkOtter,

I had a look at Amazon for the pmx but they're not in-ear type of
earphones that I'm after. (Did you mean to say that they have a
neckband?)  I had a look at their earphones range and they seem to
have reviews that suggest the sound quality is awful (one suggests a
constant electrical hum comes through them).

I don't really know what to think about these ones:

They are £17 and are being sold by a preferred merchant (another word
for amazon market place? I hear they're selling poor copies on there).
I consider them pretty expensive but would be willing to pay that if
they're a good pair. I'm not sure where to buy them from though or
whether it's safe to buy them from the Amazon
merchant/reseller/whatever they suggest. All I really want is a good
pair of earphones so that I can listen to music and use my computer's
sound whilst others sleep again yet it seems so difficult.
