    Nice info, almost pulled the trigger on the Beoplay H8 because of the 'porma' factor :D

    Hi, I need advise. My son is planning to buy a pair headphones this summer. He was choosing between a Sennheiser PXC 550 or a Bose QC35. We both have no idea how they sound like, or how they perform, does anyone have any suggestions between the two? Or any other equipment suggestions?

    Mm...experience this awesome binaural recording of a Falcon heavy rocket launch. Use your different headphones setups and know why some headphones are better than others.



    For reference (if you are new to binaural recordings):

    @raypin - wow!!!

    - can anyone help me find a Jabra Evolve 75e or its equivalent. I need a noise canceling headset and mic that I can use to attend conference calls and use it also when I am jogging.

    Where should I go to avail the promo? I want the WH 1000 XM2 but i can't decide if I would go with black or Beige. Almost everything that I own including my soul is the former, want to try something new - appearance wise.

    I have the Sony MDR 1000X, although the noise canceling is good it is too heavy for gym or jogging. It is also not sweat resistant

    I think on all Sony Centers. I personally prefer black, for a subtle look.

    Mm...have the Oppo PM 1, a well-balanced planer magnetic headphone (good enough to earn a nod from Tyll Hertsen and was once included in his Wall of Fame). Very good build quality. Looks like there won’t be a next version. Yup, too bad.

    Just bought the Sony WH-1000XM2 at NZD 298 (from NZD 599) ~~approx 11k pesos.

    What a steal :) How much is the full retail price in the PH?
