The philips SHL9600
Just bought this phone a week ago from harvey norman which retails at around rm250. I was to buy a pair of GRADO SR80 phones when a change of plans took me to Harvey norman instead. This headphone caught my eye because its quite compact when folded,and also partially because of the constant poisoning by the salesmen.
Well i bought it, and took it home for a round of armin van buuren, ATB, above and beyond and DJ tiesto. After all those songs i found the phones to be sufficiently good for these songs. I personally felt that i was too boomy and bassy, which requires constant fiddling with the equalizer.
Pop tracks from beyonce, greenday. linkin park, and etc sounds nice. I swear i did not fiddle with the equalizer when playing these tracks.
For jazz, i have to turn on the SRS effect on to boost the clarity of the tones, but drums and bass sounds absolutely splendid here.
conclusion, at rm250 is a good buy, but always keep your equalizer on to boost trebles.
