Huawei UltimoPower AM180 ANC Earphone Review

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: April 30, 2015

We recently got our hands on Huawei's UltimoPower AM180 ANC Earphones which promise noise cancellation without asking for a lot in return. With a sub-Php3.5K price tag, we'll find out how well it performs and if ever there are any trade-offs for its affordability. Design and Build The AM180, if you stil haven't guessed, has an in-ear design going on with an appearance not seen typically on earphones. It has a flat metal surface with a shiny circular design while its cable is fixed to run up and around its jar-like enclosure. Additionally, the sound driver of each earpiece is protruding near…

Relevance: 96%      Posted on: March 20, 2013

Portable audio equipment like earphones and headphones come in all shapes and sizes. In fact there’s too many variation that it sometimes confuses the consumer to think that they are basically the same. But what exactly should a buyer look for in a headphone or earphone? Head past the break to know more. Contrary to the usual notion, investing on a good set of audio peripheral doesn’t always require tons of cash. If you look hard enough, you’ll find a decent earphone from a reputable brand for under Php2,000. If that price point is still too high, there are other…

Earphone Alternative: a-Jays One

Relevance: 72%      Posted on: February 1, 2011

We're tried that Php12k q-Jays earphones back in December and most of the readers commented that the price point was way beyond their budget so the distributor sent us another pair. And this time, it's one of their entry level earphones -- the a-Jays One. Been using it daily for about a week when I go to the gym so I'm pretty much familiar with the audio performance. Before anything else though, this unit retails for only Php1,799 -- which, IMO, up in the alley of most other entry-level branded earphones. The a-jays One comes with this pretty neat packaging…

Ever since then they have providing budget friendly products with uncompromised quality. Now they reemerge with a set of inexpensive earphones that doesn’t look or sound cheap. One of the three earphones on their line is the Promac PRO One (the other two are PRO2 and PRO3) which we’ll discuss later after the jump. The Promac PRO One's build and design doesn’t disappoint as it promise a comfortable fit with its oval-shape, angled driver and three pairs of silicon buds that perfectly snugs…

JBL Synchros S200i Quick Review

Relevance: 37%      Posted on: February 28, 2014

Hot on the heels of our review of the Synchros S700, JBL Philippines has sent us their latest Apple-friendly in-ear monitors – the Synchros S200i. After our two-week affair with the magnificent S700, our expectation from JBL products went up the roof. Luckily, its earphone counterpart, the Synchros S200, didn’t disappoint one bit. From its die-cast aluminum construction, to its flat tangle-free wire, I can’t help but say that the S200i is miniaturized version of the company’s current flagship headphone. Not to mention that it also inherits the same kick-ass design of its bigger sibling. The addition of the in-line…

Sony AM/FM ICF-620R Card Radio

Relevance: 36%      Posted on: December 10, 2010

So I've finally gotten some time to unbox some of the trinkets and stuff I've gotten from Japan. Most of them are Apple accessories but this AM/FM pocket radio from Sony looked nifty. There were actually 2 variants when I first saw this -- one is just an AM Tuner and this other one which is an AM/FM Tuner. The AM Radio Card costs about 3,000 yen while the AM/FM Radio Card like this one is 5,500 yen. I got the latter with a painting of Mt. Fuji on the cover. Other designs cost a bit more (6,000 yen). The…

Smile Jamaica earphones from the House of Marley

Relevance: 35%      Posted on: May 19, 2012

One of the House of Marley products that are already available in the market today is the Smile Jamaica in-ear monitor. Check out our unboxing and review after the jump. There's a reason why we don’t see much of Bob Marley products in the market (here and abroad), it's because of the gravity that comes along with carrying that name. The product's quality as well as the brand behind it should be at the same echelon as the late reggae icon. It's also equally important that the products embody Bob Marley's principles and ideologies and that is spreading the love…

I noticed a significane surge in the number of earphone brands being introduced in the Philippines this year. Which so many models to choose from, we're curious as to which brands still tops them all. Some two or three years ago, whenever people recommend a good set of earphones, it's the Senn brand that pops much more often. Even the knock-offs are getting some good following.

We've got the Sennheiser of course, the Philips, Sony, Monster/Beats, Jays, TDK, AKG, Shure, Audio Technika, Bose, Klipsch, etc. Go…
