    thatz a lean budget. wonder if the likes of Philips, Panasonic, Sony or Audio Technica has any inner-ear earphones near that budget. even if the sound is not top rate, isolating external noise would give most music a boost- sound quality wise.

    if not u may need to up the budget to $50+...

    1150 USD... worth every dollar though!

    I just got Audio-Technica ESW-9 as well for casual use, because I cannot share my UE11 with my friends when I want to show them funny YouTube video in library or crowded areas...

    I can't stop smelling the lambskin headband and earpads!

    Hey, it works great! Thanks for the tip. Didn't expect to get tips on headphones in a photography forum, makes it all the better

    woh UE11 nice!

    Buy one then never need to keep upgrading

    The IEM is fun, no one else can understand your listening pleasure as they can't try it :P

Have a friend who uses them and I had a listen and I wanted to keep them. That was 5 yrs ago. Then read more about it and found they are really well liked whoever tried it. Almost cult even. US made too. They sell them here now? I have not like keep checking stuff like this all over singapore religiously unlike camera and computer but if they are ... I wanna get me a pair. Wonder if the shop on the 3rd floor at SLS has it. Never bothered to ask as I always thought can't get it locally so stop doing so after all these years....till you brought it up! heheh

    I disagree. I love the retro look of the headphones. And yes, they have been on sale here for the longest time. I bought mine from that stereo store at Causeway Point about 2 years ago, can't remember the name. Can also be bought at Adelphi.

    It sells for S$120.

    EDIT: Store at Causeway Point is called Stereo Electronics. (Yes, real inventive). Store at Adelphi I believe is called Music By Design.

    heheheheh...there is something I notice at times like these. When some people are in the BBB mode...for some unexpected reason their old gear always spoil or get damaged beyond repair round about the same period that they have been tempted to buy that new toy they saw or hear a few days or week back hahahahah....

    Timing damn good leh hahahah.... so be very careful with your Sony MDR-EX71 hor.

    dun worry about that Sammy. in tech speak Sg got 4 season (gadget fair, lol! ) wan!


    my Sony's has been with me since 2002. the wire material has not gone gooie like some previously, wires still intact (has a hard shell as case, courtesy of a used Gatsby- Moving Rubber container) & the drivers still sound clean.

    i do not see the need for a $200 above earphones as the sound quality would have been lost as its mostly used in trains or buses. too noisey, IMO.

    good earphones = good sound + good price + good lifespan + comfort (over extended useage over 1hr w/o ear-ache)

    Bought one at Comex out of curiosity because these 2 guys were comparing the specs of 2 Creative earphone models, overheard their pros and cons for the EP-830 model, so thought to myself if they had spent serious time going through the specs maybe it is good buy.

    So bought it and went home to compare with my B&O earphone... lol, what a waste of money getting this Creative model, that's $69.00 down the drain.
