TIMBRE Headphones: The First Philippine-based Headphones Brand

As our country moves towards self-identification, entrepreneurs and manufacturers have begun making products we Filipinos can align ourselves with: Filipino apparel, music, and art to name a few. Unfortunately there's not much we can identify with in the field of pop tech, specifically the audio division. That's all about the change with the introduction of TIMBRE Headphones. Sounds great right? But just what is it?

TIMBRE (pronounced "TAM-BER") Headphones is the first Philippine-based headphones brand that will inevitably contend with dominant audio brands international companies has to offer here in the Philippines.

Speaking of TIMBRE Headphones, TIMBRE is launching their very first pair of Filipino headphones, the TIMBRE GITARA.*


But why GITARA? For starters, it's common to see groups of young Filipino teens striking their guitars out on the streets, singing songs to the tune of Parokya ni Edgar and Rivermaya. It's a great bonding experience, and is very Filipino. In this respect, the TIMBRE GITARA pays tribute to the Filipino's affinity to acoustic guitars.

The TIMBRE GITARA comes in two four-toned color combos: a gold/grey/charcoal black on white and a gold/tan/brick red on black.

TIMBRE Headphones achieved this design in collaboration with TEAM MANILA, that humble local store of ours filled with everything Filipino—from shirts to bags to whatever. You name it, they have it. Anyway, they call the artwork on the GITARA "visual audio."

It sure looks pretty and the name sounds catchy and all, but how does it fare? Catch the TIMBRE GITARA specs below.

  1. I like the design. Its so modern, sophisticated and very Filipino. But unfortunately, its very expensive which is the biggest turn off. Regular head phones can be bought at 200Php in CDRking and good looking headphones can be bought at 400 to 600 Php. I hope that they make this headphone much cheaper prize.

  2. 2.5k is far from being "very expensive." In fact 2.5k is just the price for a decent pair of entry-level headphones like the Koss PortaPro. CD-R King is not a basis for comparison since the earphones there are, frankly, generic garbage. If you find these HP's expensive, you'll probably faint once you know the price of "real" headphones like the Sennheiser HD650. ;)

  3. I want the black one. Looks like Dre Beats, pero mas mura. I wonder if that's a matte finish right there. May sample naba nito sa mga stores?

  5. I hope they would also make smaller version, masyadong escandaloso para sakin ung headphones. Sana meron din earphones na parang dr. dre beats sytle.. 2500php is a reasonable price given that it would perform as they advertised.

  6. salvador is right. this product can only compete if they lower down the price because let's face it, despite being known to have lower quality, still people buy from CDR king.
