Apple iPhone 5s Case (Brown)

Bought the Apple iPhone 5s Case (Brown) from the Apple’s Fifth Avenue store because I have to get something from that iconic flagship store! It is just slightly cheaper than Singapore if you pay by cash. Over there, it is retailing for USD$39 + USD$3.46 (NYC 8.875% tax) = USD$42.46 (SGD$54), whereas in Singapore it is retailing for SGD$58.

I got the brown to match my Apple iPad Air Smart Case (Brown)!

Heard from my friend that it gets easily dirty/seasoned and that is why Apple did state “This case is made from natural aniline leather. Its appearance will change as you use it.” at the back of the box. Let’s see how it goes!

Fitbit Aria

Bought the Fitbit Aria from Amazon during it’s Black Friday week lightning deals. I got it for USD$93.99 (SGD$118) including shipping because the order is qualified for AmazonGlobal Saver.

In Singapore, the Fitbit Aria is retailing for SGD$169 on Apple Online Store, so you saved SGD$51 but you have to forgo the 1 year warranty.

I chose the color white because it matches my iPhone and iPad Air. Previously, I am using the Tanita Glass Digital Bathroom Scale HD-382.

What is Fitbit Aria?

The Fitbit Aria allows you to monitor your body fat and weight over the longer-term using graphs, so you can manage your health more meaningfully. The weighing scales also measure your body’s fat and lean mass, before sending the information through your home wireless network so you can access it using Fitbit’s free app.

Fitbit Aria’s glass surface contains electrodes that send a small, safe signal through your body to measure body impedance, giving you accurate data on your body’s fat and lean mass

Features

  • Wi-Fi-enabled smart bathroom scale
  • Automatically uploads stats online
  • Measure body fat percentage and BMI
  • Manage your health with the Fitbit free app
  • Use with up to seven other household members
  • Easy-to-read display

Looking Back 2013

· · · Blog

Looking Back 2012, I wanted to travel to several countries which I sort of did!

For my 2013 resolution/wish, I want to travel more. Maybe to Australia, Japan, Korea, London or even New York if possible.

I am now in New York posting this! Been to Washington DC, Boston and then New York. Will be flying back to Singapore on the 4th January 2014.

I also booked my tickets to Sydney, Australia from 16th March 2014 to 22nd March 2014 during one of the Scoot‘s promotion. It cost me SGD$615 (return) for 2 persons!

For my 2014 resolution/wish, I think is time to save some money because of all the travelling! And to contradict my previous statement, maybe for the 2014 year end holidays, I hope to maybe travel to Tokyo, Japan.

With regards to gadgets in 2014, I hope to get my hands on Google Glass which I think chances are slim. I hope Apple’s iPhone 6 would have a bigger screen and I might get a Nexus 6 to replace my HTC One!

I would like to wish all my readers, visitors and supporters a very Happy New Year 2014! Hope 2014 will be even a better year for all of us! Stay healthy, stay lucky!

Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Headphones

I bought the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones (with Coiled Cable) from one of Amazon‘s Black Friday’s lightning deals as well. Got it for USD$99.99 (SGD$126) including shipping because it also qualifies for AmazonGlobal Saver.

In Singapore, the ATH-M50 is retailing for SGD$238, so you just saved SGD$112!

Specifications

  • Type: Closed-back dynamic
  • Driver Diameter: 45mm
  • Magnet: Neodymium
  • Voice Coil: CCAW (Copper-clad aluminum wire)
  • Frequency Response:15 – 28,000 Hz
  • Maximum Input Power: 1,600 mW at 1 kHz
  • Sensitivity: 99dB
  • Impedance: 38ohms
  • Weight: 284g without cable and connector
  • Cable: 1.2 – 3.0 m Coiled, OFC litz wire
  • Connector: Gold-plated stereo 1/8″ (3.5 mm) connector with strain relief and professional screw-on 1/4″ (6.3 mm) adapter
  • Accessories: Protective pouch

From a non-audiophile point of view, the ATH-M50 sounds much better with a stronger bass, but it is a little bulky to be brought around when compared to the Bose AE2i.

In terms of comfort, the Bose AE2i wins hands down. After wearing the ATH-M50 for a few hours, your ears will start to get warm, you will start to feel the weight of the ATH-M50 and you can feel the pressure of the ATH-M50’s clamp around your ears.

Despite both the AE2i and ATH-M50 are not noise cancelling headphones, both of them managed to block out most of the noises.

I am currently using the Bose AE2i Audio Headphones in the office, I think I will be swapping it with the ATH-M50 thought it is not as comfortable but I like the sound quality!

I wonder is it me or the included carrying pouch seems to be a little small and does not fit the ATH-M50 well. Maybe it is really not meant to be carried around!

Klipsch Image S4i II

Bought for Li Xiang the Klipsch Image S4i II because she lost hers and she love the S4i! The Klipsch Image S4i II was Amazon deal of the day during the Amazon’s Black Friday week.

Got it for USD$39.99 (SGD$50) (looks like Amazon is still selling it for the same price). In Singapore, it is retailing for more than three times the price at SGD$169!

Of course, it also qualifies for AmazonGlobal Saver.

The most obvious difference between the Klipsch Image S4i and Klipsch Image S4i II will be the flat, tangle resistant cable. Other than that, I am not too sure what else has changed.

Specifications

  • Design: Dynamic Moving Coil Micro Speaker
  • Frequency Response: 10Hz-19kHz
  • Sensitivity: 110dB SPL/mW
  • Impedance: 18ohms
  • Drive Components: Full range KG 25
  • Noise Isolation: -16
  • Input Connections: 3.5mm
  • Weight: 11.9 grams
  • Special Features: Flat, tangle resistant cable
  • Accessories: 3 different-sized ear tips, carrying case, clothing clip
