The Sound Of Music in Calgary has some high end headphones, they have Sennheisers for sure.

Loyalty Sound, Calgary just right down 8th street.

Don't forget to look in their bargain bin; sometimes you might find something good. I found a pair of SR40s that way.

Here in Edmonton, Audio Ark (10745 - 124 St.) carries Grado, Sennheiser, and Ultrasone headphones. The University of Alberta bookstore (114 St - 89 Ave) currently has the Etymotic ER6 and both flavours of ER6i.

Shops in Edmonton

All the Hi-Fi shops in Edmonton have selections.

I've bought my Grados from Premier Audio. They carry (or did haven't been their recently) all models inluding the amp.

Audio Ark also carries Grados and Senns and Pro-Ject amps. They have one Ear Max amp on display. I got my Senn 600 from them and the Cardas cable from them. They have a good price as well. The 325i for example is $419 CAD. I almost bought it but then thought about the bills I have been mounting up and walked out quickly.

Gramophone carries Stax, AKG, Senns, Grados, Etomytic. They also have various amps. MF X-CAN v3, Rega Ear. They currently have the AKG 601 and 701. I got my 701 from them last month along with the X-can v3. And they gave me a good price.

Audio 5.1 had AKG. They have the least selection. I think they might have stopped carrying them.

Well, it looks like I'm going to have to pay The Gramophone a visit in my quest for new headphones - that's a very decent selection. It is worth nothing, however, that the U of A bookstore has much better prices on the Etys that they carry, as they're about $30-$40 less.

Hi,

 

Sorry to bump such a old thread but its what I found in the search.

 

So about 4.5 years later. Is there any new places that sell higher end headphones and IEMs

 

Thanks.

Was in National Audio Visual in January this year and bought a sweet pair of RS2is and got a consignment upgraded RA-1 amp. Decent selection of Grados.

Edit: Edmonton by the way
