Headphone show Summer at Nakano Tokyo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
We hold a small headphone show at Nakano, Tokyo. Hosted by Fujiya-avic.
The purpose of the show is to think about the best synergy with HD800 and Edition8. We brought several fine home/portable rigs and see the synergy with them.
Here are some pictures from the show. Beside the highend rigs, you will see Intercity MSA-1, Blossom and M81 headphone amps they are Japanese product.

I brought Jaben Piccolino cable for both of single-ended and balanced to the show as well as HD25 capable piccolino cable. They are good cables and extends the HD800 performance boundary further.
In the picture, the most near side of the table is my own booth.

As a headfier, I brought GRADO HF-2 and flats to let the people try it (using flats are not so common here).
I also brought Audeze LCD-1 planar to the show. They got favourable comments.


A big surprise was an entry of Final Audio FI-DC101s. This was recently announced unique ear-buds made of chrome or brass.

They are also know as 200000 yen ear-buds. (almost 2 grands for a pair)
They are made of chrome metal and the driver is 16mm dynamic. I tried the chrome model which is 200000JPY one.
They sounded good, the sound is natural and flat with solid foundation of bass. Sound-staging is very wide for ear-buds. The sound is fairly life-like, I think the sound reproduction ability is high. Though not detailed like BA.
However, I can not say it worth the price. For the price you can buy both of JH13 and ES3x (oh yes include ear impressions). But it is unique product and I like its concept.


The next show is our bigger headphone show on Oct 31, Nakano Tokyo.
No reservations required, no charge. come and join us
