  1. OPPO PM-3

    Never owned a Planar Magnetic headphones and have been wondering what the fuss is all about. Only impression I had on them were "expensive". But yet, over the period of time that I have read all the reviews here, it seems that everyone who owns a pair have nothing but good things to say. So when OPPO released the PM-3, it fulfilled two things that compelled me to get one. Price and Closed Ear Design.  At US$399, this is a mid priced and reasonable asking price for something that is the "entry level for the high end". And since I only use...
