Thanks to forest burning in Indonesia, the haze is getting really thick today, I can even smell it in my room! Take a look at the following image.

You can see where the haze is coming from, it’s at the red dots at Sumatra island right beside Johor.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Headphones

After about a month of wait, finally my Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones has arrived! In conjunction with my 2013 birthday hehe! I bought this headphone from Amazon for USD114.96 including shipping, that’s a good bargain actually, almost half the market price.

I has been using Philips SHP-895 all this while, and it’s actually not bad, although the headphone is a bit stiff, but the build quality is good and after 8 years of using it, the only damage is slight crack at both side of the hinge, which doesn’t effect the functionality at all.

Also, the Philips SHP-895 is using microfiber cloth to wrap the sponge in the can, one of the main reason I choose this headphone last time due to synthetic leather often fall apart after using it for some time.

For my Audio-Technica ATH-M50, I haven’t use it long enough to write a full review of it, but so far I’m very satisfy with the headphone, the sound is great although it hasn’t burned in yet, and it’s very comfortable to use, the sponge is soft and is wrapped with synthetic leather, I hope it won’t started to wear off after I use it long enough.

Well that’s all I can say for now, let’s hope this headphone will last me another 8 years. 🙂
