Edit: (By request, listed by poster & location SINGAPORE only)

hi All,

There's alot of info about which shop is selling/distributing what and so on and we get people here asking where to get this, where to get that, perhaps we could start a thread, stating where you bought your headphones and how much they costs ... Let's leave the overseas online sites out of the this thread.
Could be a useful guide for newbie (I am a newbie myself and I know the trouble I went through) unsure.gif
Headphone Brand & Model / Costs / Shop Name / Shop Location

AKG K501/ S$250 / Asia Sound / Adelphi
Sony D66SL / S$148 / Bluetin / Collected at City Hall (Cheaper elsewhere, check posts below)
Sony EX70SL / S$70 / Bluetin / Collected at City Hall
Philips 890 / S$99 / Hung Brothers / Sim Lim Square
Philips 890 at Courts Suntec City selling for S$99 as well
Perhaps we could add in interconnects and amps if everyone don't mind... laugh.gif

People who don't mind buying online can get the etys here

Etys Er4p/ around Sing $460/ http://shop.store.yahoo.com/earplugstore
Etys Er6/ around Sing $225/ http://shop.store.yahoo.com/earplugstore

Price don't include shipping, which will be around US 20-40 dollars.
Used to ship free internationally, but still the prices are low even when u add in shipping furthermore the etys are light.

posted by El Scorcho:

Just to add to the list:

Sennheiser HD600 - $450 at Hung Bros.
Beyerdynamic DT880 - $590 (jumped from $450 for no apparent reason!) also from Hung Bros.

Aural Focus is my new company and I currently import Ultrasone headphones. I'm offering them at the following prices:

HFI-650 Trackmaster - $265
HFI-650 DVD Edition - $275
HFI-2000 - $275

I finished up my current stock with the ppl at Head-Fi and Headwize, but will order for the local market depending on demand. I am willing to negotiate prices based on quantity.

Also, I sell the Philips HP-890 at $88.

I'm currently trying to work out a deal with Alessandro Music Products to see if I can bring in the Music Series headphones. If I am able to, there is a high chance that I will be able to match or go even lower than MBD, so we (yep, I myself am converting from RS-1 to MS-Pro) can all have 'tweaked' Grados at lower prices! But they seem to have lost interest in Singapore. If you wish, you may drop a mail to [email protected] to show your support for Alessandro and Aural Focus so they will reconsider my offer.

Happy listening, everyone. party.gif
