    It's not a store per se. It's an office but they also have stock there that you can check out and purchase on the spot. The address on the website is their office address. It is in the building with the Mcdonalds on the ground floor. I went there to purchase the X-Mini portable speaker that I was interested in. They have a lot of skullcandy and zumreed headphones. It turns out they are the distributor for many of their items. You also get 10% off if you purchase from them, which is a pretty good deal.

    Sennheiser and Audio Technica's headphones are renowned for their quality. Apple, not so much. Save yourself the heartache and invest in a decent brand.

    just wondering if ( lifestyle headphones) skull candy and zumreed sound good compared to tradtional headphone makers at same price range, eg, audio technica, sennheisser, akg, or even compared to japanese makes of mass electronics, eg, panasonic, denon, sony.

    i recall a hifi/av mag where they mentioning that these are not that good at best ok, emphasis on style than performance, but their respective owners rate them as very good.

    Only $240 after the discount. I think it's great. The speaker is small but it's very loud and the bass is great considering its size.

    eko22: Did you get the XMini or the XMini II? Or was it the MiniMax? I have two XMini II speakers and they rock!

    I got the X-Mini II. I actually got the first one as a gift and got a second one (from 100milligrams) for my brother.

    Yeah, it was a good deal. It was originally around 265 (I think) and then they gave me 10% off on the spot, which was a nice surprise. They told me they give 10% off on other items as well. So if you are in Wan Chai, worth to drop by and have a look.

    You should drop by their office. They have some sample headphones that you can test the sound for yourselves.
