I’m no discerning audiophile, but I do love my music and therefore hate headphones that threaten to make the morning commute more depressing than it already is. That’s why I urge any UK music geeks to head to their local HMV to get their hands on a superb set of cans for a great price, as this deal is sure to encourage iPod devotees to part with their cash as quickly as I did.
Chambers by RZA and WeSC are heavily discounted at the moment instore at HMV (the website is sadly still awaiting a relaunch after that whole ‘administration’ business earlier this year), so you can enjoy ‘phones endorsed by the Wu-Tang icon for a fraction of the cost of Beats – and apparently they’re better too. They’re certainly pretty swag, even boasting LED lights when you switch on the ANC, and the sound is definitely crisp and punchy in all the right places – what really sealed the deal was the £50 price tag though, when the RRP for the premium set was £250.
So, even if you have no clue who this RZA chap is, you can’t argue with that price. The ‘Street’ version is even cheaper, available for just 40 notes. More snapshots of the premium set below:
