So, Audiopark joins with American George Cardas to create the earphones called KOKO-10.
The KOKO-10 not only provides the sound to enjoy your fav music, but also claims to provide a special care to hearing function, where the earphones are meant to reduce the chance of tinnitus and improve hearing function. I personally would like to give it a go as I am always thinking about tinnitusdue to the amount of music I listen to each day.

Interesting video clip to watch exes confront each other on infidelity face to face.

HKWalls 2017 will land this March in Wong Chuk Hang, generously supported by Eicó Paints. As our city's very own annual street art and graffiti festival, the event has an understandably high demand for its main media-- paint. Non-toxic, durable, and sustainable paint is what Eicó has to offer.
Well, I just went and bought a new backpack last week, so a little sad that I heard this week that Hex backpack range has arrived in Hong Kong.
The recently concluded Ani-Com and Games Hong Kong fair saw a wave of fervent supporters from across the country—with many also coming in from the mainland. Its 18th installment, held last July 29 until August 2 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, featured local cartoons, regional mangas, and other limited edition fictional works from top artists. In addition, it put virtual reality in the spotlight, a fresh craze in the industry as seen in the number of hands-on demos of Playstation VR. However, one of the event’s highlights—and most widely talked about—is its comics.

The local indie music scene may have suffered in the past year with the closing of two iconic venues Backstage Live and Hidden Agenda, but who says Hong Kong’s music scene is dead? Freshly opened on Queen’s Road East is 1563 At The East, a restaurant, bar and lounge, and live music venue rolled into one, with the sole mission to champion Hong Kong’s burgeoning talents.

After recently going through my remaining collection of house music vinyl I realised that there has been some what of a come back of people using vinyl in recent months. HMV in Central now has a whole section of vinyl, much more than when I actually used to order vinyl from the store over 10 years ago. Venues such as MyHouse and Oma still have turntables set up and have nights where local DJs play from their extensive collections.
I have asked other venues over the years why they do not have turntables and usually it comes down to a few reasons. First is the space in the DJ booth as often they only have room for CDJs or turntables, all of their residents use CDJs now with or without a laptop, or they just cannot get certain music that they want to play on vinyl. Another point is that for those DJs travelling to Hong Kong or even local DJs travelling to the different clubs each night, vinyl can get heavy and having USB sticks saves a lot of carrying that weight.
Playing and listening to vinyl is still very different to me and I can imagine more places dusting off their turntables. In the next few weeks I plan to donate all of my vinyl to some lucky Hong Kong DJ so these great gems can actually get played, which is what they were made for!
