Got it for US$39.99 (S$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 S$169!
Bought the McKAL Airplane Audio Adapter from the newly opened Challenger at Bugis Junction for S$6.90 (Member’s Price: S$5.90). Now I can finally use my own earphones/headphones for the airplane’s in-flight entertainment!
I can also watch my movies for about 10-15 minutes longer while the air stewardess goes around collecting the loaned headphones from the passengers!

Before I start every headphone/earphone review, I must say that I am not an audiophile and hence for this review, so pardon me if I do not focus on audio quality.
The Logitech UE 6000 is retailing for S$319 in Singapore and it comes in two colors, black or white. The Logitech UE 6000 is in the middle of the Logitech UE Headphone series. The Logitech UE 4000 (S$159) is the lower one while the Logitech UE 9000 (S$599) is the higher one.
Launched last month, the UE BOOM is a 360° Bluetooth wireless speaker which is water resistant and even shock proof. It is out in stores retailing for S$299 and available in 4 colors (Blue, Red, Black and White).
My first impression of UE BOOM is the sound is loud and the bass is pretty good, the only downside is that it is a little pricey.
Received the ATake Rain Dance Speakers from my cousin as a gift. If you are interested in purchasing it, it is selling for S$39.90 at Challenger, Courts, Popular and Newstead.
I think the ATake Rain Dance Speakers is good for outdoor parties (like a BBQ) or you can buy it for a gift exchange, it is not really something that you would use it with your desktop computer as the sound produced is a little muffled.
I am not really an audiophile, but I can hear the sound difference between headsets. I don’t own much headsets as I prefer earphones. The only headset I got is the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster which is retailing for S$298. The Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset on the other hand is retailing for S$249 which is slightly cheaper.
To me, the sound on the Logitech G930 beats the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset. The sound produced on the Logitech G930 is sharper, clearer and have better bass quality (which is important to me), while of course the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset looks aesthetically nicer.
The Sony MW1 Smart Wireless Headset Pro is retailing for S$168 at Xperia concept stores and Sony stores. The Sony Smart Wireless Headset pro is a Bluetooth stereo headset that can stream music from your phone via Bluetooth’s Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) and can function as a standalone MP3 Player/FM radio.
