Sonic Gear Ear Pump Studio Pro

I have never really promoted any products before. And I am going to promote this ear phone voluntarily, not being paid for it. I happened to be browsing around at Challenger and came across this beautiful headphone. I had seen many expensive ones but this one was really striking, if you like the awesome size of the ear piece which is in vogue. It looked so good, attractively designed and well made.

After looking at it for a while I returned it to the shelf. But I kept walking back to take a second and third look. I had no intention to buy anything. It was a very appealing piece of headphone. And the most appealing part was the price tag. It was likely to be the top model for Sonic Gear. I have used a pair of Sonic Gear table top for my computers and never regretted. It was great value for money.

Now this headphone was beckoning to me. Then I told myself, what the hell, it was only $39.90 before discount for members of Challenger. I must say I have several headphones and in ears and I absolutely do not need this piece of equipment.

I paid for it anyway, just to test out what it was going to be like compare to my Sony Studio Monitor which was a very good piece of headphone. And I don’t expect this less than $40 piece to be close to it in performance. Even if it is a few notches down, how to complain? It cost only a fraction of what I paid for my Sony.

I could not believe my ears when I plugged it into my system. It came very very close to my Sony. Unbelieveable! The sound quality is good enough for listening. The clarity, spatial and transparency. The bass was reasonable when the volume was pushed up. For $40, this is a great piece of headphone, and damn good looking too.

The headphone may not produce as good a sound on the mobile phone or a small pocket player. But once plug into a reasonably good system it comes to live.

It is worth many times the $40 I paid for. I thought I was just having fun throwing away $40 for a piece of toy. It was a pleasant surprise, and a headphone to keep and listen to. If you do not want to spend $300 or $400 for a branded phone, this is an excellent alternative.

Problem is 60% of the people are not so smart. They are totally brainwashed and insist that there is no other party better than the current one headed and founded by a traitor.

60% believe that quality comes at a price and it got to be the higher the better.
However, one clownish minister want others to be cheaperer, betterer and fasterer. Btw, this ministers CPF alone is higher than many Sinkies total monthly income.
To say he is a joker is too mild, I say he is sick.

Tiok. Just like foreign talents may not be regarded as talents in their homeland. But once they come to Sinkieland, they come to live and regarded as real talents. By PAP lah, of course.

Sinkieland indeed has a reasonably good system to plug in foreign talents.

No wonder PAP "unplug" Sinkie talents from their own land.

Do not mixed up, headphone is not talent, system is not Singapore, goes back to basic, dig the root cause.

Here is part of Putin's speech to the Duma on Feb. 4th.
"In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.”

'Final results from a referendum showed that 50.3 percent of Swiss voters had backed the "Stop Mass Immigration" proposal pushed by right-wing populists, threatening to ignite a row with Brussels.'

Nigel Farage, the head of the UK Independence Party, said Switzerland had stood up to "bullying" from Brussels and that it was "not a matter of race but of space."

Please lah.
Singapore is nothing compared to Russia.
What is PM Lee compared to President Putin of Russia?

Only LKY ideology can blind us into thinking 6 million Sinkies (with 50% who just got their pink i/c) can outfight and outlast Indonesia with a 200 million population.

Every time our dear leader opens his mouth his Singaporese subjugates get a good ear pumping. Sweet.

Hi Abao, I have tested it for 2 days. Still running in and the sound is getting better. Recommend you just buy it. Only $40. If you a member of Challenger I think you get another 10% discount. I bought it just for curiosity and was prepared to junk it if it is not up to my liking.

Unless you are looking at very high end sound, this piece is very good. I compare it with my Studio monitor and the difference is not that noticeable except my monitor is a bit sweeter and a bit more details. Most of the time you may not notice the difference without trying to listen to the difference.

Mboyan Atuk The main culprit are our own GOVT. Just look at Indonesia or malaysia….they too have this CPF like scheme but they can withdraw it totally after you come to the golden age of 55years old. In Malaysia you can withdraw 50% at age 50years old and the balance 50% at age 55.
So who gave the GOVT right to hold onto our CPF money till age 65 or 72yrs old…..??? Its the people of singapore , its you who vote for them , so please use your HEAD to THINK carefully and ask yourself this QUESTION….is this what we WANT ? If not ….please INFORM your MPs , there will be NO VOTE for you until you explain and convince US the citizen of Singapore why we cannot have our MONEY at age 55 ? Also what happened to all the CPF money being used into overseas investment that they have lost…how much? Are anyone responsible for IT…???]\

Nobody will be so stupid as getting a bit of handouts here and there, to lose their whole life time of savings(CPF), they toiled so many years blood, sweat & tear money?

Few ladies will go to Batam to spend all their money on men, most who got their CPF will be prudent?

CPF should be returns at 55 as promised, HDB should be able to refinance their HDB, for the older people to enjoyed the golden years, as many would not like to sell the properties, which they prefer to stay in the same area?

More options should be given to the people, like those who know how to invest?

But many unlikely to have much savings because the every increase in inflation? The heavy influx of foreigners that push up the prices of everything?

On one hand their CPF is kept for life, on another hand they lost their jobs or pay to the influx of cheap foreigners, that might took away their jobs or their children jobs?

The new citizens are wiser in Punggol East because the increase in saturation of handheld internet enabled devices for them to share? Which the main party votes drop a massive 12 percents?

The result show since the 2011 election, the main party support after every election or by election as time past because of the handheld internet devices the main party votes kept dropping because of unpopular or flawed policies?

Gone are the days where mostly the older generation got their news only from state controlled medias? Now many older generation began to use hand held internet devices and their younger children share with them?

Or it is better to let the older people to borrow their CPF at a low interest, M'sia returned their CPF at 55, why Singapore can't?

These time because of massive sharing and over saturation of handheld internet enabled devices, the main party could lose the election, if they held back people CPF for life?

People will know how to think if they lost their jobs at 55 they still got a least the CPF to tide over their difficult period, if they lost their jobs look for credit companies or loan sharks without the CPF savings?

This time around the main party could lose more then 20 percents of the votes then then 2011 election? 2016 is base on the internet viral up the news and the people main sources of news? M'sia seen a massive change of voting patterns due to the internet? As their state control media take a backseat?

So the 2016 elections result will depend on the internet?

$40 is still a lot of money especially for pioneer gen people. Pioneer gen people who build this nation. After spending on medical, food, car, computers and armchairs to blast in the internet whatever policy dished out by govt, we got not much money left.

We should ask govt for some subsidy for us to buy this earphone. It is not a lot to ask for.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

I second that. But whatever they are going to give you will make you very happy reading your CPF statement. It is likely to be money you can see but cannot touch.

It will be money written into your CPF account and then written out to pay Medishield Life. How lucky you people are. Great mercy and compassion.

Anonymous said...

I agree, we all are indeed very lucky, although it is can see cannot touch money, still money.

What I wish for is some cold hard cash for entertainment in our twilight years from the govt for me to buy a good quality headphone to pump up my adrenaline while I blast govt policies online. Just taking care of my medical is not enough, you know, I need to be entertained as well.

With a stroke of luck you may get your $40 : )
