Memorex WR100 review

These headphones from the re-activated Memorex brand might cost peanuts, but you'd still be better off spending your money elsewhere Tested at £17.00

Our Verdict

Even at this money, the WR100s are poor headphones – spend your money elsewhere…

For

  • Splash-resistant
  • can you tell we’re desperate?

Against

  • Frustrating, uncomfortable fit
  • devoid of detail
  • thin, lifeless presentation with a serious lack of substance

Memorex now has a wide range of home entertainment and portable electronics at its disposal, ranging from Blu-ray players to in-ear headphones, such as the WR100s.

Exercise lovers might appreciate the rubberised, splash-resistant finish on these in-ears, but you'll struggle to find any more positives.

The flexible blue arms give an uncomfortable, insecure fit and the earpiece pops out at the slightest provocation.

They might be splash-resistant but the sound is splashy and insubstantial, lacking detail across the board. Yes, the WR100s cost peanuts, but only monkeys would hand over their money.
