Epson is giving away a Sennheiser HD201 headphone (street price is Php1,350) with every purchase of Epson L100 and Epson L200 ink tank system printers.

These printers are fitted with filters and tank caps to control the airflow and ensure minimal ink wastage from moisture evaporation while the integrated design minimizes print head clogging. Another advantage of the Epson L-Series printers is that unlike those converted printers, Epson gives up to 15,000 prints warranty coverage. You’ll get maximum value from your printer without having to worry about maintenance. The promo is valid from August 5 to September 5 this year from participating stores in the following cities: GMA,Bacolod,Baguio, Batangas, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu,Davao,Iloilo, Iriga, Laguna, Legaspi, Naga, and Tacloban.
