from singapore also here.
burnt after M2, HJ900, TF10, CK10 and SM3.
Yeah, And btw my Miles Davis which i bought at Stereo PS had its left driver down (confirm not jack and cable problem, The sound was weirdly fuzzy and went off. Tomorrow i going down to the Distributor Hwee Seng Electronics since they are the only one offering warranty for locals. Hope They will give me a new healthy pair of MDs FAST! For now i has my Ortofon e-Q7 to appease my angry ears xD
for higher end earphone, retail shops in sgp are selling earphones in retail price which is very ex. it's better wait promotion in international website and ship back to sgp. back in dec last year, TF10 was sold for $99 USD = S$160 after shipping. it was much cheaper than $600+ retail price here.
but for mid range earphone, it's better to buy here since the price after shipping is comparable.
above is just based on my observation.
Once I hit custom monitors (Which seems pretty soon) and a good amp like the Shadow or Arrow. I will stop. So far I've been able to save temptation from buying any heaphones for the past 5 yrs. I've just stuck to my ER4-P which I love... until they broke.
I'm sorry about your ER4-P, then again, the old has to give way to the new some day. (: I'm telling myself the exact same thing, but I doubt I'd really keep to it. It's just a wallet-killing hobby.
On a side note: this is becoming like a semi-singaporean thread! In any case, most of what I have are gotten online. : D treoo seems to have started offering the SM3's very recently though.
Jaben do online business, but they often pair up with other items which I dun really need it. Only Treoo is doing online and international business. They do have a wide range of headphone equipment to choose from, but a great pity that they dun have a retail shop!
Another place I would recommend is try Ebay or Amazon, if not wait for people to mass order some stuff.
I am from Singapore too!
Man, all these Singaporean audiophiles! :P
I personally came from Hong Kong, but despite of having two major retailers here, I am envious that you guys at least got an online shop that sell Fischer equipments. I wonder if there is a way to get Fischer in contact with one of the retailers in Hong Kong...
What are the 2 major shops in HK that specialize in this field? Can's seem to find one during my last visit there. I only heard of Uncle Mingo, which my friend intro me to it.
Well quite fortunate for us Singaporean to have online store like them available, however the market over at Singapore is very small. Don't see many people with portable amp or good headphone carry around. Mostly for people us here use the by default ipod earphone =(
There are Kingsound and Uncle Mingo. Both retailers sell a huge selection of headphones... with Kingsound selling them at lower prices than most. XD
... I am actually not sure whether if having people carry default iPod earphones are better. In HK, everyone carries Monster Beats (every SINGLE variation of them, from the in-ear to the on-ear to the studios). I squealed like a little girl when I saw a guy wearing AKG headphones for a change, hahahaha.
hmmmm, not to offense, on my recent visit there, I can see Monster Headphone selling at Woman Street that shopping street, so my thinking is these Monster might be fake one, since it can be obtain so easily. In Singapore, you can see many people wearing Monster around too, real or fake one, I can't tell it straight, maybe after listening to it can tell.
