As mentioned in my
previous post, I needed a splitter to separate my headphone cable output to audio and microphone because my Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2013 keyboard doesn’t support combined inputs.
So I decided to get the Ugreen Headphone Splitter Cable from
Lazada for S$6.99. Shipping is free if you collected the free shipping voucher from Lazada. If not, shipping to Singapore costs S$1.49. Ugreen Headphone Splitter Cable – Packaging Front

I was waiting for the rumored Apple AirPods Studio to be announced as I intended to get it. But after Apple announces the AirPods Max, I went ahead and bought the
Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones instead.
At S$849, AirPods Max is not targeted at regular consumers. I am not an audiophile by any extent, so I would not spend that much money on headphones.
