This blog is around 5 or 6 years old and I have already written posts about various headphones. One Skull Candy, one WesC and one Marshall later…
I’ve been attracted to the BeoPlay H6 since I saw it on Jonas Bjerre back in 2013. It has been difficult to purchase one, being based in the Philippines. I’m so not willing to pay extra on shipping and taxes as the pair of H6 alone costs a fortune.

It’s a block away from Greenbelt if you’re after shopping and eating out.

Anyway, if you are to donate anything please make sure it is a legit organization. Red Cross is my chosen org, and there are more listed on this NBC News article.
Is pre-ordering a title in The Book Depository cheaper than purchasing it after release?
I’ve done a quick run-around the net to find information on pre-ordering, the perks and the prices related to it.
For some online sites like iTunes, pre-order prices are similar to the after availability range. Some merchants will also more likely to make you pay more so you can secure an item once it is released.
