Hi,

I would like to get some advice/recommendation

- Your rig: OP6/Mix 2S/Laptop
- What type of usage: General purposes but mostly music
- File format used in your source: MP3, Streaming (Youtube, Netflix, etc)
- Genre of music you listen to: Pop, heavy bass song
- Headphone/earphone type: Prefer headphone but will consider earphone as well
- Other requirements (if any): Wireless (with wired with a mic as the option), ANC, Microphone (for call/conference), USB-C charging
- Budget: S$200-400

Currently, for wired earphone, I am using Yamaha HA-FXC51, for wireless, I'm using ERL true wireless earbuds but the battery life really sucks, less than 45mins and ears feel sore after usage, and for headphone, Sony MDR-XZ770BT with the issue of it's getting hot easily so can't really use it for long hours.

I'm considering WH-1000XM3 but the price is a bit on the high side, the alternative will be Galaxy Buds. I am open for other brands as well, e.g. Audio Technica, AKG, etc but don't really know how good they are compared to WH-1000XM3. Thank you.

Sony wh1000 the mic not good for calls based on online reviews.

Bose QC35 will be better for your needs. But give it a try first.

For me I don’t like Bose ANC, I like the Sony better.

Has anyone bought headphones from carousell, I intend to buy brand new but does not have warranty. Should I continue with the purchase? Any things I should look up for?

Yeah if they somehow managed to produce a fake that achieves identical levels of noise cancellation and sound signature within a few months then I will gladly give them my money.

If the price don’t differ much from retail, should get it from authorized retailers. You will never know when the headphones breakdown 😂
