Don’t forget to catch all of our IT Show 2023 coverage at our Tech Show Portal where you’ll also have access to the full brochure listing, interesting articles, and more.

The 2021 successor to the four-year-old mainstay of in-flight over-ear headphones is the Bose QuietComfort 45. The brand claims an enhanced noise cancellation system with Quiet and Aware profiles, with 24 hours of battery life.

Originally at S$499, it’s now S$60 off at S$439 if you visit the Challenger mega-booth (Level 3 concourse, Booth 309). 


Bowers & Wilkins Pi7 S2 and Pi5 S2

The Bowers & Wilkins Pi7 S2 true wireless earbuds offer true 24-bit audio connection and Bluetooth 5.0 listening with AptX Adaptive. The charging case also offers a 3.5mm audio jack to re-transmit audio to the buds, and eventually into your ears. As a premium pair of TWS, it also offers adaptive Active Noise Cancellation, has IP54-rated resistance against water and dust, and wireless charging support. The buds offer up to five hours of playback (ANC off) and an extra 16 hours from its charging case.

The Pi5 S2 is more affordable than its premium counterpart, but it has two microphones on each bud (the other has three), doesn’t support for 24-bit audio, and also lacks the retransmission feature from charging case to buds. 

Why is this a deal? These buds aren’t officially available in Singapore until the end of March 2023, but you can grab them now at S$729 (B&W Pi7 S2) and S$499 (B&W Pi5 S2) if you’re at the Challenger mega-booth located at Level 3 concourse, Booth 309.


Creative Sensemore Air

The Creative Sensemore Air true wireless earbuds differentiate themselves from other ANC TWS with its Sensemore Mode. In essence, Creative claimed it’s five times more sensitive than conventional Ambient Mode / Transparent Mode / Pass-through Mode options seen on other leading TWSes, where it amplifies important environmental cues or speech for your safety while cutting out the rest. In fact, Creative also said it might benefit users with early signs of hearing deficiencies.

This feature is on top of the conventional Ambient Mode and ANC, paired with 6mm bio-cellulose drivers to deliver up to 10 hours of playback (35 hours total with charging case) and wireless charging support.

It’s currently S$10 off its sticker price (S$109, instead of S$119), and you can find these true wireless earbuds at Creative’s booth (located on Level 4, Booth 8601).
