    Or rather, bose was never considered by audiophiles as good in the first place, overpriced junk if u ask me..

    And yes, the akg which u highlighted is a good one.

    thanks for the reply... no luck from there though...asked and they only carry the monitor studio series and not the noise cancelling range of AKGs.....

    any other reliable places with good range of headphones i can try?

    yeap.... bose is definitely overpriced.... my previous bose headphones were refurbs from outlet stores... refuse to pay full price.... but the headphones from bose are comfortable

    have u tried adelphi Jaben? if jaben doesn't have it, most likely u cant get it in singapore anywhere else le.. (but i m not a fan of jaben though, their prices are almost always higher than other places. but the good and famous thing is that they hav a tremendous range & u can sit down in the shop whole day to audition.)

    Ah u got me excited for a while. Tried buying on amazon. Problem is although it qualifies for free global saver shipping.... it does not ship to singapote! Weird. Same for some of the Samsung tablets I was eyeing. Buy they they ship nexus 7.

    I think only "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com" is qualify for free global shipping, not sell by 3rd party.
