sidefx: Quite interested; I assume it'll be worth coming for non-(or noob) audiophiles, even if just to dream? ;-)


Totally!

NZtechfreak:
Item: Oooh tempting!

Sadly anything which will end in me telling my wife I need to upgrade from my trusty Grado 325is' will probably be vetoed...

:(

Still - Would love to get a go on the Audeze range.


Definitely come anyways :)

If you like Grado I suspect HiFiMan's offerings at the higher end would be more to your ears liking though.


I may well come along then.

Might have to lie and tell her I am going to a strip club or something though.


I love my Grados...but I would ideally like just a touch more warmth and a little extra depth to the bass - without losing those excellent mids and highs.

Yep, that sounds like HiFiMan :)

If it wasn't clear before guys there will be a number of enthusiasts with their gear on show, and there will definitely be a spectrum that encompasses a good selection of mid-Fi gear as well as all the ridiculous unobtainium.

I'm likely to attend, I actually like the idea of the hearing tests thought I know my hearing is perfect.

UPDATE: Audio Reference will be in attendance now also guys.

They'll be bringing a range of high-end stuff for our listening pleasure (headphone gear, they do specialise in speaker-fi to obit that is beyond the scope of this event). I'm especially keen to hear the Chord Hugo, which I believe they will have by then.

Might have to make it and see if I actually like any of the high end headphones.

In my limited listening in the past I have actually prefered decent quality mid-end headphones to the few high end ones I have tried. So long as its not distorting and the bass doesnt sound like a teenagers honda civic parked outside I am usually happy.

Ultra low distortion and tight linear bass, sounds like the HE-6. I'll have mine there :)

Thought I would let you all know that tickets to the headphones meet are now available. Hit the link here to grab your tickets http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=717640361

I can now confirm the date and venue - Saturday the 24th of May at the Fickling Convention Centre (Hillsborough Room) in Three Kings in Auckland (see in Google Maps).

This is one not to be missed if you have even a casual interest in headphone audio, the list of top of the line gear that will be present for your auditioning pleasure is, quite frankly, unbelievable - an unparalleled opportunity here in NZ.

I am still unsure if I can make it. Frustrating.
