I was looking at some Forrester data around the influence of online research in offline purchasing and it had some pretty staggering numbers that got me thinking about head-fi.
The doc claims that online research influences $8.1 Billion of PC purchases, $6.9B in peripherals, $60.2B in overall Consumer Electronics, $6.1B in video games, etc. How big is the headphone/audiophile market? Anyone have any good data or estimates? Then I think we can safely assume that Head-Fi comprises >50% of that influence
