Nuggets: Live 2000 - In your ear headphones for MP3s

If your MP3 or Minidisc player sounds pants, get the MX500 'phones

In the midst of the swirling maelstrom that is Live 2000, you could easily overlook a tiny set of must-have headphones. Most personal portables and MP3 players are let down by the rubbish supplied... But have no fear, just £20 will secure a pair of very sleek looking Sennheisers from its MX range.

The metallic blue MX500 delivers high sound levels, clear vocals, smooth treble and decent bass, even from low power devices such as MP3 and MD players. Much more important they don't make your ears sore after an hour of use...

An in-line volume control, and relatively funky carry case with cord winder, complete the package.
