Last time we looked at these, they received a whole-hearted thumbs up and full complement of stars, and all that at £150.

Now they are widely available at around the £100 mark. A bit of a steal then? Well, yes.

A comfortable set of headphones, the NS-1000s are also excellent at cancelling out background noise. Sonically, it's a clear, clean, crisp and open sound, with plenty of detail revealed that more than justiifies the price tag.
