Friday Audio Quest
A Break from school resulted in an audio quest with a mate.
Status: After Breakfast at 11.30am
Locale: Stereo Electronics @ Plaza Singapura
Background on Stereo ^^; – Stereo Electronics is a awesome place to audition headphones, in ear monitors and all other types of earphones. They have a very large arsenal of poison to kill any type of person you can throw to them. Some of the phones are so Toxic that you feel that all the other phones/sound producing device sounds really crappy.
SPL Phonitor Shots
SPL Auditor Shots
Basically, the Auditor is like the scaled down version of the Phonitor. (Without the Vortex of massive sound recreation)
Both of them have the same Drivers… only difference is the Removable cable and the color.
After Stereo, we headed over for lunch and then to Jaben Networks.
Status: After Lunch at 3.20pm
Locale: Jaben Networks @ The Adelphi
Background on Jaben ^^; – Jaben Networks is yet another awesome place to audition Earphones. They have some stuff that Stereo does not have… like a full range of Beyer Dynamics Headphones (DT 770, DT 880 and more). They are also one of the rare shops in the world left which you can get the Sennheiser HD 414. Jaben does not have Ultrasones which Stereo has and that’s the reason why we need to dash through and fro the area (Luckily they are both located in the city and is within walking distance).
Well, the purpose of going to Jaben on this Wet and Rainy day…
To try the STAX Omega Mk. II
This pair of babies are electrostats… My first time hearing electrostats >_<
They come with a really nice warm and fuzzy feeling which is really not found anywhere else.
I guess its due to the unique nice warm fuzzy sound that results in the price being so extravagant.
Well, after a day of walking and listening, its time for some rest!
