I’m here in Bangkok right now and if you’re looking at small items like that I would, personally, say yes and get them here.
I actually was accidentally doing some electronics shopping today and purchased a fair length Apple/microUSB split cord and downgraded myself to a bluetooth speaker about the half the size I currently own (for all I’m in passionate love with it…damn).
Just recently came from the states a few weeks back, the ones I purchased were of comparable quality to ones I’d looked at that were 3 or so times the price in the States.
To give background price scales to use since the US can vary so much by location and store/item, I was looking at these things (and bought my larger bluetooth I’m so loathe to part with) in Worcester, MA area and then D.C. area.
If you Need the same name brand then I can’t speak for it, I purchase (anywhere I live) by what’ll work how I want and don’t concern myself with the name on the package. Besides, like our clothing, a lot of the items in the US are made by the same companies for different brands, names and packaging being the difference added for them.
Larger, more specific to use, etc. items I’d do the research beforehand on the guts of them and if they’ve “dupes” (duplicate, as is phrasing for items bought like that ^ within the US) somewhere over here in Asia. You get the same price and packaging issue in the US: research the build and you’ll have two computers set side to side identical or near but different shapes/colors, brand names, and prices.
I guess my comment on any of it is, little stuff: I find it cheaper because it’s all the same stuff when you look at and use it most of the time, and when it isn’t you can just get what works and don’t look at the name.
On big stuff: just like in the USA do your research on what the electronics you are wanting are actually made of and by and to what spec, then hunt for options before arriving with an idea in mind.
