At least it fits inside your Kallax. But i guess that’s the only good point about it.

Bose is pissing me off, all their products are about $100USD more in Taiwan, and stores like amazon won’t ship Bose products from Bose themselves to Taiwan. My Bose Qc20 broke and bose’s earbuds are the only ones I can wear comfortably for 5+ hours without any discomfort and without coming off.

Kind of looking at sony wh 1000xm2 but I like something I can also go the gym with. Sony does ship to Taiwan from amazon at a cheaper price.


#84

That’s pretty much like everything, isn’t it?


#85

Yes, but usually I can find a way to ship it from the US from a company. Bose seemed to blocked all the channels of sales from official Bose sources to ship to Taiwan.

I might opt to Sony. Their new NC headphones and earphones imo has surpassed Bose now and at a better price.


#86

I’ve found in the past that just about every brand of headphone is markedly more expensive here in Taiwan than elsewhere.


#87

Yeah it’s annoying but I get around with by ordering overseas and sometimes having a friend or family traveling bring it back for me. Bose seemed to blocked all international sales from any official supplier to Taiwan.

Syntrend has a sale on Sony headphones on the 4th floor if anyone’s interested. Makes it the same as US prices just about this weekend.

Can you recommend anything for high impedance headphones? I’ve been looking for something similar but for my collection of cans.


Bluetooth Receiver $465

Don’t confuse the elderly with your new-fangled terminology.:slightly_smiling_face:
I visualise these highly effective communication systems . I can verify that they work. Retail price around 6nt. :laughing:

I ordered the Sony XF1000x wireless noise canceling earbuds.


#91

Do they have girlfriend boost mode ?


#92

Oh she hates them. I can’t anything on my Sony WH 1000x m2 (idk why Sony makes these impossible names)


#93

Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee for the win!


#94

These get great reviews, some reviews say they are the best.


#95

The sound is amazing. Really fantastic and clear. But…the connection drops a lot. And there’s a lag on sound when watching videos.


#96

I shopped for in-ear Bluetooth wireless headphones today at Syntrend, building next door, and all along the area streets.

Availability sucks. Only about 5 options available and most of them are off brand not highly rated.

Then I’m thinking how can I even use a headphone with 3 to 5 hour battery life, on a day like today, when I had them in and on 10 hours already. I’m lately some days averaging 10 hours a day using headphone (mostly thanks to podcasts n music) … and Bluetooth won’t do it.

Wired is wired. No worry about cutoffs.


#97

What’s your budget?

Check out Bose QC20. Wired and amazing sound. Mine broke aftee 2 years, the wire had some problems. I wanted wireless. The the Sony x1000 m2 was amazing over the ear headphone.


#98

I already have wired Bose over ear Quiet Comforts, don’t like them. Have Bose 11 speaker surround on tv, don’t like them. Not a Bose fan anymore except for 901s.


#99

Definitely the time to find a good deal on electronics, including headphones of all kinds. Black Friday is only 4 days away, after all.

Bose QC 35. Great noise cancelling and build quality. Found them brand new on the app Mercari for $200 (retail is $300). Be wary of fakes, make them upload a photo of the headphones connecting to the smart phone app
