Where to buy cheaper earphones/headphones?
Thot of getting a Sony/Aiwa Panasonic etc clip-on earphone. Any good shops to recommend? I can easily find them in places like Harvey Norman etc but I believe such places are more expensive?

earclip headphones doesnt sound good especially sony, panasonic, aiwa
ones. they're made in china or phillipines mostly, though the sony V series headphones for DJ are really really good. I bought a philip earpiece phone at around 60+SGD, and geez, even an 8 dollar one sounds better. Just a note.

Huh really... But these days, some Jap products especially the accessories are made in malaysia, china to cut cost right? I believe their QC should still be there? No?

Erm u dont seem to know your stuff. In the audiophile world, BOSE is not regarded highly at all... it is known as one of the highly-priced non-performer

carrefour one of the cheapest in town for headphones.
yes, sennheiser is one of the best in the 'affordable price' market.

I am using Sennheiser MX 500 earphones.... pretty good value for money... beats my more expensive Sony many times and seems to last forever... My Sony tends to go deaf on one side....

Just got my Sennheiser PX100s today after doing some research. So far have been quite happy with it but wonder will they get better after burning in a bit more.

My Sennheiser PX 200 (which is essentially PX 100 but with a closed headphone design) seems to sound a bit cold when you just start to use it at the beginning of the day. But after half an hour of listening, the sound will improve and it'll open up and sound punchier. The only thing is that it will feel a bit warm to touch (maybe because of the closed design) after prolong usage. But the sound produced is definitely .

Some one recommended me a Bang & Olufsen earphone.
Anyone has any comments?
I have used a Sennheisser HD 25 SP HeadPhone, not bad. (a bit too large for ease of carrying though)
Looking for earphones now. Any Recommedations from audiophiles?
Needs to be comfortable for prolong wear and good sound quality and a Plus point will be if it is leak-free, meaning I can turn up the volume (not deafening..just loud) w/o the guy sitting next to me in the MRT to complain.
