Deal Alert: The Headphone Special

The Headphone Special

Whether you’re listening to a classical symphony from a grandmaster, the latest K-pop tunes, or watching the Avengers taking on the bad guys, sound is something that adds to any experience. And the quality and fidelity reproduced by your headphones counts for a lot.

Sometimes it’s just nice to sit back and let your favourite music or movie transport you to somewhere else as what you’re listening too and your headphones take you to your happy place.

This week, we take a look at some specials on headphones that we found online.


ASUS ROG Strix GO 2.4 Wireless Gaming Headset

Great for games and entertainment

The ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 features a noise-cancelling microphone that leverages AI to block out unwanted background noises such as the sound of keys typing. The headset relies on a USB-C connector for charging, that can last up to 25 hours on a single charge, while 15 minutes of charging should get you three hours of use. It can work in wired mode too with the included 3.5mm connector. Buy it now and save when you pay only S$255 when the regular price is S$319.

Creative SXFI Air

Delivers great sound to you and you alone

The Creative SXFI Air delivers audio that sounds like it is coming from multi-channel speakers placed a distance away from the listener, perfect for music and movies thanks to the individualisation via the app. The SXFI Air can take audio feeds from either Bluetooth, USB, 3.5mm audio jack or the integrated microSD card reader. Buy it now for S$189 and save S$50 off the regular price of S$239. Get it within this month and you’ll also enjoy free shipping.
