My favourite headphones

The Behringer HPM 1000

A loooooong time ago in a city faaaaaar far away I bought myself a pair of headphones. Back then they costed me a bomb – 3000 INR. This was in 2003. Since then the following have happened:

– I moved between 3 cities

– The headphones are still intact

– I went to Korea and returned

– The headphones are still intact

– I got grey hair

– The headphones are still intact

– I put on a lot of weight

– The headphones are still intact

– I got married

– The headphones are still intact

– I have a kid now

– The headphones are still intact

– The city Bombay changed its name to Mumbai

– The headphones are still intact

 

… I guess you get the drift. Not only are these the most awesomest headphones I’ve used but also the quality has not dwindled. In the meantime I ran through other headphones including Sennheiser and Philips branded. They always ended up with either a broken casing or a snapped cable. So I stopped buying any of these funny things. Instead when I thought about buying a new pair my choice was obvious. The next time I have a chance, I am buying the HPM 1000. Now if only I can find the place where they sell Behringer in India… else I’ll have to travel to the US to get them.

For those who are curious here’s the product info:

Considering that I spent 3000 INR (~$60) for headphones that are working perfectly even after 8 years, I’d say that was mighty good buy… or a manufacturing defect 😀 The second purchase will tell me.
