    Default Sennheiser Headphones

    Anyone knows where I can get a good deal on Sennheiser headphones?

    Any particular shop I can trust in Adelphi (for eg?)

    Any lobang would be appreciated.

    i used to be looking for Sennheiser headphones. i walked around adelphi and SLS and i ended up getting at Funan challenger.

    and they sold the headphones for $1 cheaper.

    If you buy at Jaben, look out for the bundles. You'll get your stuff at a much lower price if you're able to sell off the items that you don't want. Wilson @ Jaben also frequently offers free samples of Bacon Salt to his customers, which is IMO a very appetising seasoning

    You might want to try the Grado SR60s and the Alessandro MS-1s as well

    Haha. Those are entry-level headphones that cost about $100. Decently light on the wallet, I guess.

    That setup would undoubtedly sound awesome. Another legendary headphone worth noting is the Sony R10. Tried it once at Jaben and it was

    I'm looking for a Sennheiser PXC 450. Tired of my Philips and really want a nice range. I tried on the BOSE QC3 at the recent IT exhibition (Sitex or Comex?) and I found it rather pleasing.

    Looks like Jaben is the place to check up. I've tried Vivo Challenger and have not been able to find what I'm looking for.

    @Glennyong
    Dude, OMG! Your setup looks "steam" man. Pure audio bliss when you get a turntable for sure. The warmth of the sound will be amazing!

    @chanxj
    Thanks for the tip. Will check out Wai Lian too.

    I strongly advise against buying Bose products. You can probably get better products from other brands for cheaper. Bose doesn't have its own unique sound signature anyway.

    I bought a Senn CX200 just recently from Challenger (wary of counterfeit Senns). Not a headphone I know but I just wanna ask if the following issue is covered by the 2 year warranty:

    My issue is that the wire on the end that you attach to the player (i.e. iPhone in my case) appears to be "grounded". Only the right channel is playing. Left channel is gone. If I twist/turn/adjust/play with the wire, the left channel works... only to be gone again once there's a (slight) movement to the wire.

    Anybody knows?

    :Later,

    If noise insulation is not crucial, get one without noise-cancelling tech. Most closed-back phones do decently with blocking out ambient noise anyway. Think about it. One set with noise-cancelling and one without. Both cost $100 to purchase. Which would sound better?
