I think it's wrong that people to look down on the Chinese, while

praising the Japanese to no end.

 

There are a lot of others asian countries which give honest

customer service that can be as good or even surpass

Japan's standards. 

 



Right on the spot, I'm from china originally, the gap is huge for sure base on their early policy of let portion of people getting rich first than pull the rest of the country, which make sense hen they first decided to push the economic development, but i guess it failed in one or another. The gap is way beyond your imagine nation. Japan has the smallest gap in the world i guess.

This is not the place to have this conversation..

I am through with this thread as i see no meaning for further comments...

 



well, there are more than a billion of em, you can not just cover em all or represent em in anyway, especially just spent time with some Chinese. It would be wrong to judge people from where they are. Although in General, people in china are a little bit more lacking  manners, not all of em, but given the huge population base and education coverage, so ye, compare to the extremely polite people in japan.

Yeah, that much headphone stuffs.



It's it true that a full album CD in Japan runs like $50? I saw some imported ones at our local store, a EP or single could run at least $15

Your're correct that this is not the place to have this conversation. Please go find some other forums elsewhere that cater to your race preference.

Yeah, it's definitely more expensive in Japan than in US.  They also have a lot of limited editions with extra goodies that easily run up to US$50, while standard albums are around $20, at least according to amazon.co.jp.  I would say everything in general costs more in Japan, while you can also find much higher quality food in Japan for less money than you would pay in US.

Anytime you criticize a country or race, you are walking on a landmine.

Lets restrict this thread to headphones and we all can get along.

Each country has beauty and warts too. Is just the way it is.

Don't focus in the warts and look at the positives. We all are better persons by doing so.

oh that's much better , I guess it's just the import tax lol , anyone know any source that sells the japanese CD in a more reasonable price? I really dig their female vocals, or pop songs as i can't understand them what so ever, cz I find many pop singers have great voice but their songs are just non-sense , it kinda bugs me lol

I would suggest visiting when the exchange rate is better.

Also, to get a small taste of headphones on demo, you can also check out B&H store in New York.  They have Sennheiser HD800 for you to try.

Standard CDs (not fancy extra goodies) in Japan has a flat standard 3000yen (~$40) price tag across the board on new releases in the bricks and mortar shops, I think it's been this price for more than 15 years.  Amazon as always heavily discounts their stuff, buying from Amazon is actually cheap if not for their wallet busting shipping rates.  Another one worth looking at is HMV JP, their discount isn't as high as Amazon but their shipping rate is much more reasonable.  

 

Best place to find CDs in Japan is second hand stores like Book Off, much better than buying new if you are going in blind.
