Haha mostly because se215 is available at almost all headphone stores in Singapore, cost $199 which is just bordering on what the average Singaporean would pay for an iem, and also because they look fantastic and their colleagues/friends would respect them as an "audiophile". Believe it or not at the next train stop after I saw the se215, I saw a pair of se215 SPEs

I feel your pain, bro... Amazon is my only source. (Sniff, sniff)

I was actually surprised when I walked in, never expected that store to be selling so many consumer-grade headphones with brand names that we know and love. Still learning about my home country I guess!

 

As a bonus, sennheisers at a listening station :)

When you mention listening stations, did you know the Best Buys here run amps and DACs for the B***ts and for the Senns and other stuff sitting in the back, extremely low bitrate files?

Damn that wouldn't give a favorable impression of the music at all. I only listened to that station for a few minutes but from what I could listen to it should be CD-quality music.

Seeing the ad for Spotify Premium claiming that I can enjoy "Premium Audio Quality without ads for free" with a trial. With a person wearing a pair of UrbanEars in the background. Made me laugh.

Haven't seen anything at all worth mentioning (and I still haven't) But yesterday I saw my first ever pair of knock off beats.  Completely black with no logos/text/buttons.  Almost looked better than the real ones if the finish wasn't so bad.

I also tried a pair of fake beats, blind A-B tested them with real beats. Apparently I found that the fake beats sounded better than the real thing.:confused_face_2:

Will not consider it a bad headphone, in fact, they sound great well... Unless you hate coloured mids xD Momentum is a good alternative thought...

Well i go to a private school, literally 70% of people at my school own beats Solo, Studio, or Pro... Some even multiple pairs.

 

Needless to say, i made quite an impression when i bought in my Beyerdynamic T5p + E12 amp one day lol...

 

I normally bring ATH M50 to school for music, i don't think bringing $1400 headphones is safe lol.

Yeah! Another person going to a private school! But really, there are lots of beats everywhere.
