Finally, another chance to review a headphone that I do not own. 😀
The Sony MDR-NC6 noise cancelling headphone I’m reviewing here is my roommate’s. He always use it without the noise cancelling feature, because when I borrowed it, it contains no battery.

The headphone needs only a single AAA battery to power the noise cancelling feature.

After listening the default songs that I always use to review headphones and earphones, this is the result. Continue reading “Sony MDR-NC6 Noise Cancelling Headphone Review”

Skullcandy Smokin’ Buds Earphone Review

Skullcandy Smokin' Buds Red White
Skullcandy Smokin' Buds Red White

Just after a few months more than a year, my dbE Acoustic PR-20 broke. The reason seems to be a very classic problem, that is the wire inside breaks and thus one of the earpiece no longer produce any sound.

I should say that I’m a bit disappointed because it didn’t even last to two years (two years is my magic number for digital gadgets shelf-life). But what should I say, I cannot expect a $27 in-ear earphone that sounds good to be that durable anyway.

Anyway, since I definitely need an in-ear earphone as a replacement I bought a Skullcandy Smokin’ Buds from TJ Maxx at half of the retail price. It’s not the most colorful, it’s ‘just’ a white and bright red colored one (if you’ve seen some other Skullcandy earphones you would understand what I meant.. :D).

I’ve been using this earphone for almost a month now, and I think it’s a good time to write a review about it.

Koss PortaPro Headphone Review

Koss PortaPro Stereophone

Finally, I can try this legendary headphone from Koss. Why legendary? From a quick google you can find that this headphone series has been manufactured by Koss since 80s (that explains the retro look).

The headphone has always been compared with Sennheiser PX100 because they both portable and roughly tagged at the same price. As a proud PX100 owner I was curious of how Koss PortaPro sounds, and I’m really fortunate to have the chance to try one that my work colleague just bought.

Does it really beat the Sennheiser PX100? Let’s find it out! Continue reading “Koss PortaPro Headphone Review”

Samsung Yepp M1 Music Player 8GB Review


It seems that more and more of my work colleagues are getting “intoxicated” for a search of good sound quality, either through better headphones and headphones, or music player.

The new gadgets I get my hands to is Samsung M1 Music Player. It looks like a competitor of Apple’s iPod Touch, because it is a full multimedia gadgets similar to many O2 Mobile Phones that not only capable of playing music files, but also playing videos, games, and other applications.

Look sleek, and I’m more than ready to review this cool gadget. Continue reading “Samsung Yepp M1 Music Player 8GB Review”

Allright, I guess this is one of the milestone of earphone review I made so far. Because this is the first earphone that cost more than $100 I reviewed so far.

Koss Ear Clip KSC75 Review


My friend told me that Koss KSC75 is the best ear-clip earphone in class. Well, I’m not sure where he got the grading, but I’m just the person who cannot be convinced easily unless I heard the sound myself.

Koss, I suppose is quite a known name in the world of earphone lovers, though I myself haven’t heard much about it. Koss KSC75 is the second ear-clip earphone I reviewed, after the Sennheiser OMX 52 I tried several months ago.

Let’s bring this ear-clip to test, shall we? Continue reading “Koss Ear Clip KSC75 Review”

Meizu M3 Music Card 8 GB Review

Meizu M3 Review

One day, a work colleague of mine asked me for songs in flac format. I wondered why? Not so many people I know know about flac format.

Later I found out that he just bought Meizu M3 music player. Hearing the brand Meizu, it seems that I’ve heard the brand somewhere, though I’m not sure where.

Then he let me hear the Linkin Park Meteora album in flac format that he copied from me played in the M3. And whoaa… I immediately need to listen some more to this tiny music player.

And this is the result: Continue reading “Meizu M3 Music Card 8 GB Review”

CrossRoads MylarOne Quattro IEM Review


This morning my friend brought this earphone to me and asked me to review it. He borrowed it from my another work colleague who just have bought it.

Honestly, it’s the first time someone offered me to review an earphone rather than me politely asking to borrow one. So I guess I’m now known as an earphone reviewer eh? 😀

Enough with narcissistic talk, let’s get straight to the review. Continue reading “CrossRoads MylarOne Quattro IEM Review”

Crossroads MylarOne Bijou 2 Earphone Review


I heard my work colleage told me last night that another work colleague of mine has a new earphone that sounds like a headphone, and it cost around $50. I asked him what is the brand and he said that he never heard of it before.

So I looked for the owner and asked him about it. He also never heard of the brand, but he read some reviews in the internet saying that the sound was great.

Well, it should! Because it cost twice of my dbE Acoustic PR-20. Anyway, I immediately asked him if I could borrow it and review it, and this is what I have to say. Continue reading “Crossroads MylarOne Bijou 2 Earphone Review”
