Benjamin pinged me about the offer last October and I thought it was a pretty good deal. So I ended by asking him to get it for me. I bought the NudeAudio Move M for US$69.99 (S$94) and I got the NudeAudio Move S worth US$49.99 (S$67) for free.
After reviewing the X-mini CLEAR and asking my fellow tech blogger, Renhao, who is an audiophile, we came to conclusion that X-mini CLEAR isn’t worth S$299.
So I decided to get another portable speaker for my dad. Renhao recommended the Creative Sound Blaster Roar and besides him, I also read many online reviews saying the Roar is good and value for money.
I am currently using a headphone stand that Li Xiang got for me on Taobao for CN¥190 (S$38). It is pretty expensive considering it is a rip off of Just Mobile’s HeadStand and the quality is shit/horrible.
I always wanted to get the Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones also known as Bose QC15 in short because it is one of the best noise cancelling headphones in the market. It is good specially when you travel a lot! Be it via plane or by bus, the QC15 will be able to cancel out some noises produce from the vehicle’s engines. I also heard from my colleagues that it is a life saver in the plane when you have a crying child on board.
I did not get the Bose QC15 in Singapore because it is way overpriced. The official retail price is S$479.
Bought the Bose MIE2i Mobile Headset from Apple’s West 14th Street Store in Manhattan for US$116.96 and after 8.875% tax, it comes out to US$127.34 (S$161.50). The usual price is US$129.95 but Bose in USA is giving a 10% discount during the holiday period. With the 10% discount, it is about S$37 cheaper when you compared it to the official retail price of S$199 in Singapore.
I am pretty impressed with the Bose MIE2i, it sounded better than Klipsch Image S4i II with regards to clarity and bass and from a non-audiophile point of view, the sound quality is on-par with the Klipsch Image X10.
