It does but I don't have a Paypal account. Well, technically I do, but the bank account associated with it "expired" since I did not do any transactions for a year. ;_;  

 

I guess I can reopen it though. 

I wonder how much the shipping fee would cost?

Thanks for the additional inputs! 


Though I guess if I buy the X3 (Which is available locally, actually I'm also considering that DAP as well), I think I might go for a cheaper set of 'phones. 

Don't!!!!! Get a better pair of headphone instead of the X3! Like Lin said, buy it from Amazon/EBay! Otherwise, you can look for Philippines Head-Fiers like Knights and see if they have anything to sale to you at a cheaper price smily_headphones1.gif

You have bigger problems than shipping costs... CUSTOMS. I don't mean the in-ear type, I mean the smuggling and extorting in barong types. Biazon is far from done cleaning up that bureaucratic mess.

When I bought something from Head-Fi, I did so because I was on my way to the US, so I had it shipped to my brother's address. Zero import fees, likely because it's obviously used (good luck arguing with Phl customs on that - I've heard of replacements for defective items getting charged).

Thanks for the heads up! I'm glad you warned me right away! Though, If I may ask,Why are you opposed to the X3?

So if I'll have it shipped from overseas it won't work? Bummer.

In that range I would recommend the ATH-M50's closed and isolate very well. Bit of a v sound signature but sound very good. Good Build and fold for easier portability. Ear cups adjust and rotate well. Pretty comfortable as well. Just my $0.02

Was not impressed by the M-50s and they were pretty uncomfortable with dtick pads. With some DT-250 pads they were pretty good though.

Yea I had to adjust mine a bit  to make them comfortable (placed them on a shoebox for a while to lessen the clamp force) butonce I did they feel good now - I still use mine as my travel set because with only a 32ohm resistance a phone/tablet / portable player can drive them quite well.
