We gave Esther her birthday present early. A set of Sony MDR-1000X headphones. We were near Plaza Singapura and we went to Stereo to have a look at the headphones and she picked the Sony. Her previous pair was also a Sony (MDR-10R) that we picked up at a good discount. I must admit that they were really comfortable and sound good. She has good taste. The cool part was the touch controls on the right cup which not only lets you do the common stuff like volume, play/resume and track skip but also a lower the music mode which is activated with multiple finger touch. This lowers the music volume and amplifies speech for conversation. Really cool and the touch controls are very responsive. Here is Esther wearing them.
