Headphones & Speakers -1

Audio Technica

It's been a while since we saw Audio-Technica at the show, and they've got the ATH-M50x on sale for just S$198, down S$30 from the usual price of S$228, and you'll get a MX Case thrown in. That's a decent discount for these monitor series headphones that use 45mm large-aperture drivers and 90o swivelling earcups. 

Also on discount, is the ATH-ANC9. These are going for just S$168, down S$80 from the usual price of S$248. And you'll get a free Audio Technica notebook thrown in. Not too bad for these noise-cancelling headphones that fold flat for easy storage while traveling.



Creative has their latest SXFI Theater headphones at the show, and you can get them for just S$249 instead of the usual of S$299 with the exclusive show vouchers at the booth. That's pretty good considering these were only just released. Again, these are wireless headphones that boast SXFI capabilities streamed over a proprietary wireless connection for better stability.

There's even a special bundle promo at the show where you can get the SXFI Theater headphones with the Creative Outlier Gold wireless earbuds for just S$289! That means you're only paying S$40 more for the wireless earbuds instead of the usual price of S$139. Quite a steal, yes?

Otherwise, check out the new Novas. These are portable Wi-Fi multi-room smart speaker lights that are Amazon Alexa compatible and can give you up to 16.8 million colours via app. These are going for just S$149 at the show, down S$100 from the usual price of S$249. 



Google's speakers can also be found at the show, so you can get the Google Home here for S$99 instead of the usual price of S$169. That's a good discount for these smart home speakers that have a 2-inch driver and dual 2-inch passive radiators.

Otherwise, for something smaller, pick up the Google Home Mini. This is smaller but still equally capable. This gives you 360 sound from a 40mm driver, and will of course give you direct access to Google Assistant via your voice. It's going for S$59 at the show, just S$20 off from the usual of S$79.



The Jabra Sport Pace is again on sale at the show. This is going for just S$58, down S$110 from the regular price of S$168. Not bad for these wireless sports in-ear headphones that have a IP54 rating against sweat, rain and dust and a fast charge feature that gives you an hour's worth of playback time from just 15 minutes of charging.

Also on offer, is the Jabra Elite Sport. This is going for just S$278 instead of the usual price of S$368. That's a 24% savings, and you'll even get a free Jabra water bottle worth S$19.90 thrown in. Pretty good for these wireless in-ears with advanced two-microphone technology for better wireless call performance.

Jaybird has their sports headphones on offer at PC Show 2019, with the Tarah Pro here as one of their best buys. It's going for S$199, a modest S$30 down from the usual price of S$229. But that's still prety good for these IPX7-rated sport earphones that can give you a full 14 hours of playback time on a single charge.

Otherwise, check out the Run XT. These are true wireless ear buds that have IPX7 moisture resistance rating and interchangeable ear fins for a more secure fit. They're going for a show special of S$179 instead of the usual of S$299, a massive savings of S$120. And you'll get a duffel bag thrown in!



Looking for portable speakers? JBL has the Pulse 3 is going for just S$199 at the show, down from the usual of S$339. That's a pretty good price for these speakers which give 360o sound via its three drivers and dual passive radiators, and offer a light show that runs in perfect sync with your music.

Read our coverage of the the JBL Pulse 3 here.

If bigger sound is what you're after, go with the JBL Xtreme here. That's going for S$209 instead of S$399, a savings of S$100! 



Billed as "Your first Premium headphones", the X6i uses a single KG-723 Full-Range Balanced Armature driver which is tuned for midrange and high frequency extension. It of course features Klipsch's patented oval ear tips for excellent comfort and passive noise canceling, and is going for just S$289 at the show instead of the usual of S$329. Buy two or more to get it at S$279, a full 15% off!

Otherwise, look at the T5 True Wireless. These are only S$30 cheaper at S$319, but you'll get a chance to truly personalise the sets by having them engraved at the show. And there's a chance to win a limited edition R6i that's worth S$179!
