Coosh Headphones

When the Coosh Headphones arrived in the mail, I was pretty excited to see what they were all about. After all, they were sent as a sample and I was in the market for some new headphones. They came in a fairly large box, surprising for such a small item – and how interesting that one of the ear buds was wrapped around a large realistic looking ear, which is now prominently displayed in my living room.

Coosh Headphones

The lightweight Coosh headphones are being marketed as headsets that stay on and don’t hurt, as their tagline makes clear: ‘STAYS ON. FEELS GOOD!’. There’s a video demo of b-boy (bboying/breakdancing) group Massive Monkees testing them out – demonstrating that the headphones stay on even when dancing, doing flips, handstands and twists.

Watch Coosh Crash Test #1:

The Coosh site has a warning under the video: “These tests have been performed by one of the best and experienced breakdance crews in the world so please, please, please, don’t try this at home, in the street, on your rooftop or on your dad’s car!”

I’m not the hippest person when it comes to these kinds of gadgets, as I rarely use them when away from the computer, so I don’t think they have anything to worry about with me trying any of the breakdancing moves whilst wearing their Coosh product.

Getting the earphones on was a bit of a challenge at first – and they seemed to stay on okay. Every now and then, though, I do find myself adjusting the left headphone, but I think that’s just me getting used to how they’re supposed to wrap around the ear and my hair is getting in the way a bit. Other than that, they sound great and are very comfortable. They would make for an innovative gift idea for someone who’s on the go a lot and loves their music.

Leon Jackson - When You Believe

Leon Jackson, the 2007 winner of The X Factor, appeared on GMTV’s LK Today this morning. Lorraine Kelly talked to Leon about his win last Saturday night December 15th, his nerves throughout the show and the fact that he had just started singing publicly in January of this year. Karaoke was his schtick before his appearance on the show, and after being crowned the winner, Leon is now a part of X Factor history.

Leon’s new single, a cover of the Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey hit song “When You Believe”, is now available for download and will be in stores December 19th, 2007 on Sony BMG. We’ll have to wait and see if it will make UK Christmas #1.

He sang “When You Believe” on LK Today along with a choir, and after performing on The X Factor Saturday night and probably getting little sleep, he sounded pretty good for a Monday morning. I like the tone of his voice, and at times it reminds me a bit of Jamie Cullum. Even though Leon, who hails from Whitburn, West Lothian, Scotland, is only 18 years old and hasn’t had much experience performing in public, he seems a natural on stage.

With Dannii Minogue as his mentor during The X Factor (UK series 4), it seemed apropos that he would sing a duet with her sister Kylie on the night of his win. They sang her hit, “Better The Devil You Know”. I wonder if that will ever be released as a single?

Last year the winner was Leona – this year, Leon!
