So. Earlier today I tweeted this:

I shall now fill the Olympics-sized hole in my evening viewing by attempting to learn how to play the ukulele

Fate intervened. My lovely Shure earbuds promptly started making crackly noises. Yes, I know that Shure customer service is bloody marvellous, but I'm not sure that even they will replace a pair of 4 year-old earbuds.

So, I've been looking at replacements. I asked Twitter (as you do), and it's a toss-up between:

Sennheiser CX-300 II
SoundMagic E10
and the more expensive
Klipsch S4

or this lovely sunburst orange Makala soprano uke. Look! it's orange! and has a dolphin on it!

Forty quid though. I'm sure they were less than £30 last time I looked. And I'd need new strings (I'm told), and some kind of 'please god make it play in tune' tuneriser.
