What I need to kill the boredom when schedule has been delayed or to look nifty wandering on the transfer line at the airport without being a pseudo-DJ, is a good quality of headphone to listen my favorite songs. I used to believe that B by Dre is the only choice but considering its design and the hefty price, I have to think twice before buying it. I unwittingly found a good-looking headphone within doubt of suffer sound quality at Brightspot market, a seasonal indie bazaar in Jakarta. I plugged them comfortably onto my ears and it's surprisingly isolate outer voice, I barely hear my voice instead of humming. I tested out one of the upbeat song and it generates clear yet deep bass which I like most. Oh I forgot to mention the brand of the headphones, it is URBANEARS from Stockholm! Apparently it comes with various types from small earplug (good for jogging) to mid-size headphones. If you like colorful scheme then you will be pleased! Those foldable rubber materials beat the plastic-y headphones off the market.
Not to mention the best sound quality is the most expensive one a.k.a ZINKEN at that time with the price tag 1.400K IDR, still cheaper than a regular Beats by Dre though. Enticed by promotional period from Urbanlife store, I can get some additional such as: an earplug (BAGIS), an adaptor cable + Software (SLUSSEN) you can mix some music on the software (iOs gadget only) and listen on the headphone as well as sound system. Because there is 1 plug on each side of the headphone, one 6.3mm and the other is 3.5 mm, I can get the benefit from sharing music (max 2 headphones) so that my friend sitting my next won’t be feel abandoned haha.
