Take the Sony Qualia R10, or maybe the Denon AH-D5000. It's well on par with Germany's Sennheiser HD650 or the US' Grado GS1000i.

I like quality, and never going to spend money for trash product!

As a former employee of Samsung, I can tell you now Samsung is NOT cheap. They are the forefront runners in NAND Flash chipset innovation and companies like Apple, Sony, LG whathaveyou are forced to buy from Samsung, cause they simply make cheap, realiable flash chips. The only true competitor Samsung has in the NAND front is Toshiba, but they're rather infamous for slower write speeds.
[deleted post]with all ur trash talk about cheap asian products, yet Japanese made products are ranked second in ur list? arent u confused? u were thinking that Japan is in EU or US? and remember this, sometimes cheaper products are meant to be of lower quality, aint it? who wouldnt want to buy Aston Martins etc etc which do the same thing like a locally made cars like Proton in Malaysia???? but when u guys speak of Asian trash etc etc, rmb their price as well.... even so, like it or not, when u said Asian products are trash, u'll be surprised by how many things u use and own are trash.... eg, look at ur shirt, i really doubt u'll have a trash-free wardrobe....

Aggreed~~ SAMSUNG is a world leader now.
SE used to stand for 'SONY ERRICSON'
SE stands for 'SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS'
All this talk about "cheaper to manufacture" is just a benefit on the company and never really passed on to the end users!
We didn't want to see pixels and Apple made the rentina screen for us.
Can you see pixels on these or are both companies trying to play catch up to Apple?
-Posted from my iphone4 held correctly to prove any talk of signal loss is a lie when the phone is held correctly.
Samsung VS LG : that was 2 Dragon Fighting...Best Option, More cheaper than all..success in sales
did u ever tought that EU brands are having a hard time in the US market, but are very known for the rest of the world. and every nation/country has great but also shitty products...:/
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010samsung and lg is cheap!!!! this is the main reason of their sales success. compare the price ... moreyour headphones must have very long cable to watch 40" screen haha! you need to get life when people buy big screen tv for home cinema exp not to watch p*** with hp LOL!! No matter what samsung is largest biggest consumer electronic with 173 billion dollar revenue. IT is the amount sony can dream of and bigger than all EU electronics companies combined!!

Do some research you will find sony use samsung LCD panel LOL! Koreans are on the rise. EU?? there is no good consumer electronics brands. Most uk brands here and some german laptops are shit and not working in 6months
White, 01 Dec 2010Where do you see rasism? I like quality, and never going to spend money for trash product! ... moresamsung lcd has higher reliability than sony's. Sony bought samsung panel anyway. All EU electronics brands are shit and nvr made mainstream now.
sharp's quattron technology could be nice on mobile handset, but those enhanced technologies has no attractivities.

This time in world i can trust Europeans, Australians, Canadians, Japanese and never trust rest of the world!
So tel me where it's rasism if you got in mind me?
Rasism diferent and here we talking about phones!
Do you understand that?
As a Korean I personally find the last two posts rather racist-based, but let's try and view the issue from a wider standpoint-point-of-view.
Samsung produces ALOT of TVs these days. And granted, they produce alot of varying low-end panels with various features. As do LG. The thing is, they're trying to give the end-user (aka, the customer) more choice. And again, granted, many potential customers will find the LCD panel market far to populated and confusing. There are some TVs with certain features that other brands may or may not have. And there are certain models (within the same brand) that will have features that other models will not have, despite being in the same price segment. In the end it's up to you to know what you want and how much you want to pay for that particular feature; you choose what you want to dish up your cash for. Yet despite the choices given you complain about something not having a feature, well then you epic fail since you didn't research enough (...headphone jacks...)
As for the pricing. Korean products are significantly cheaper than European products as labour costs are cheaper in Asian countries (..duh..). But note, most European products are all HIGH-END devices. Bose's Audio Division being one. Philips TVs are more and more rare in the average-Joe's budget line these days and they too are starting to head into expensive territories. One thing we should all know though - Korean manufacture costs are more expensive than their Chinese counterparts, and I'm sure everyone will agree, we do build stuff with alot more quality control than the Chinese without a doubt.
Now onto Japanese products. They still produce excellent products that the world all know have extremely high levels of quality-control and reliability. But I'm sure everyone also now know that their time in the sun (Sony being most notable) is fading. Only in the past few years has Sony started using Samsung's own LCD panels for their low to mid end TVs. And for their MP3 players, they are rather dependent on Samsung's NAND-FLASH components and technology. Overall, the most notable is the Japanese playing catch-up in regards to display panel technology. It was a bad investment move in Japan a few years back but one that took its toll (Japanese companies, spear-headed by Sony, thought projectors were the way of the future when Samsung thought it was LCD panels; we all now know how that turned out...).
I hate to break to all youse who are rather anti-Korean (or anti-Asian for that matter). Our region has suffered 2x wars in the last century alone. Our traditions and values were lost and were remade with shear effort and desire for success. And we're now (or have been for the last 20 years in the case of Japan and Korea) emerging as technological super-powers on the planet. Heck, Europe has been in a similar scenario to us but then they focus on expensive electronics so they're in a different niche to us altogether (and they don't make as much net profits as the Asian regions when it comes to electronics sales); though yes, they too have recovered remarkably the past century or so.
So I don't really think people are justified in saying Korean products are shoddy. More like, the people are complaining since they don't know how to use their own electronics, or more like people don't know how to choose the right thing for their own ends when companies like Samsung, LG, and even Sony has offered then a myriad of choices.
And the unfortunate reality is, people are too committed to a single brand today (example being Apple-fans buying all things Apple, but I won't get involved in such an argument here). You ain't limited to just Samsung or just LG. Hell, if you have the money I don't really care if you dish out extra for luxury European devices when we all know they execute the exact same core functionality as the cheaper Korean, Japanese, or even Chinese products in the long run. So what if European products offer more quality (ie, high quality headphones that have huge frequency responses)? Most people, including yourself, won't be able to tell the difference between a cheaper product. (I admit though I can hear the difference between .flac files and 320kbps .mp3 files so I'm not really in that category in regards to audio). I'd say to all people reading, get what you need, when you need it. Don't go buying something cause it's hip; manufacturers are laughing their ways to the bank with your hard-earned cash when you do. And don't buy from a single particular brand; some brands excel over others in particular segments, and all you as end-users have to do to find out is to do some RESEARCH; find some reviews. The internet is there for a reason...
As an electrical engineer, I don't really suffer from the above issue as I know what I want and need in anything electrical. But the less-informed (ie, your average-Joe customer) will not. Alas, my views above might be biased...
...But yeah... My 2 cents worth.
Sails , 01 Dec 2010And how come the N8 plays games etc. lot better than any Android device?
