I recieved my Sennheiser CX95 earphones yesterday and they're great, thanks to anyone who contributed to my thread. I did alot of research and these came out the best in terms of price/quality/what I needed.
Anyway although they arrived without any problems, it could have been all so different. The postman put the package (definitely too big for the letter box) in the alley next to my house. This alley is shared between us and next door, where there is building work going on (this is obvious from all the mess, materials etc.) not only was it exposed to the workers next door but anyone walking past, the gate was left wide open with the package in clear view of the passing public.
These earphones cost over £50 and I would have been very angry if they had gone missing, I'm thinking of complaining to the Post Office for being so careless. They could have put a pick-up note throught the door or put the package out the back behind a bin (this is what they sometimes do), this however was unacceptable.
