Hello everyone,

Another audiophile in the UAE here, Al Ain to be more specific.

Currently putting together my budget portable setup. Currently have JVC HA-FX1X earbuds (epic sound after a few hours burn in, purchased for 150 from Jadopado) and a Sony NWZ-B173 player (seriously incredible little thing, 250 from Carrefour). Next on my list is a Fiio e6 (ultimately want the e11 but will try out the e6 first as it's pretty cheap).

OK so I got the e6 today (got it at Eros in Karama for 109), and all I can say is WOW. It's pretty incredible how such a tiny device can make such a difference to the sound being produced. It's not a life altering change, but it has definitely made the bass cleaner, and the highs not as pitchy. Now I'm really keen to try the e11

They are clearing old stock and if you put a good bargain they would give almost anything away .

 

I was at Jumbo and was planning to buy IE 80 after my beloved IE 8 got deceased some time back.

I was browsing through Sennheiser and was fiddling with IE 80 box, a salesman suddenly approached and  told me that he could ask his manager to give me discount on IE80 (seems like sales are not good for Sennheiser in Dubai, everybody is after other trashy cans like Beats). Even though they weren't giving it for any discounts I would have bought IE 80 for 1499 Dhs.

Anyway after few moments the salesman came and told me that he could give me IE 80 and Amperior for 1499 Dhs.

Hmm, one bullet two birds LOL, I couldn't stop laughing in my mind on how ignorant was the salesman in selling these cans to me.

While parting he told me to tell friends who might be interested in buying Sennheiser (good marketing)

went yesterday

they have an amperior (the last one for sale) half price-that is pretty good but useless for me that already have a pair of momentum

I asked and told that a "friend" got both for just the price of ie80

ie80 cost 1499 (1500) and no way that they give me both the senny for the same price

....

Anyone interested in Philips Fidelio L1/M1 headphones, Virgin stores are currently seeling them at half price. The Fidelio L1 is available just for AED 600. Very good deal IMO.

Also just wanna update you guys. I decided to invest in a quality player. I couldn't get hold of an X3. So decided to look around for a Cowon J3 as they get some damn good reviews. WOW I'm glad I got it. It's just too awesome. The sound quality is epic, I never thought music could sound this good, it just adds a whole new dimension to the listening experience.

If anyone is interested in getting one, there is a company selling them in Dubai, and at only 300 for the 8gb model it's a steal (they only have black left).

You can call this number and ask to speak to Miss Jackline...04 355 4222

Highly, highly, highly recommended

they got it in DubaiAudio, yet without EH tubes so it will be with less treble and bass detail, more mellow and musical and tube like, i hate the stock tubes lol! EH tubes FTW ;3

their off the hook if their only ignorant about the audiophile gear which is fine, but we have a problem if their ignorant and stubborn, enjoy your beats but for god sake don`t even make the argument that they are the best headphones out there, just cuz your dum enough to pay for Dr dre beats advertisement campaigns doesn`t make the headphones worth every penny. lool
