Klipsch R6 Neckband (S$295) 

These wireless earphones are designed for extended use and feature a pleather-padded band for comfort along with 18 hours of playback time with each charge. They also vibrate when a phone call comes through – instead of interrupting your tunes. 

Sound wise, the R6 really excels on the bass, delivering strong and powerful beats that are impressively clean, plus high fidelity vocals and instrumentation — perfect for fans of hip hop, rock and jazz.
