The Best Ever Headphone / IEM shop in Seoul, South Korea

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 

 

Just wanted to let all Head-Fi enthusiasts know about this amazing headphone / IEM shop in Seoul, Daehangno, South Korea. It is by far better then any other shop that I have ever been too, including Tokyo Japan (e.g. Dynamic-audio, or any other shop in Akihabara) in my personal opinion.

 

They have almost every current headphone / IEM; I spent 4 hours there, listening to almost each one with my iPhone. I walked in there with my Etymotic mc3, and after evaluation of most all, I decided to upgrade to Etymotic ER4P, and bought the 3.5MM plug resistor adapter to ER4S .

 

They were a little bit more expensive then purchasing them in the US, but I was so impressed with the service and how informative they were, I spent the extra money and bought them there. If anyone will be traveling to Seoul, South Korea, I highly recommend a visit to this place.

 

The webpage is only available in the Korean language:

Here is an example of the many rows of headphone / IME’s that they have on display for customer listening / evaluation testing.

What a coinky-dink.

I'm in Korea right now, and I just visited an amazing headphone store. They were selling Triple fis, Phiaton models, ortofon models, higher end AKG models, Ultrasone, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Would've spent a couple of hours trying out all the headphones, but I only had time to try out a phiaton model, and the triple fis. The place was a bit expensive though.

Unfortunately, I forgot the name of the store....

I've visited headphone shop. Indeed, they are amazing, and not too loud, so you can enjoy earphones like the HD800 in relative peace.

I will be in Korea next month. Have to check it out. It's kinda hard to find a store here in the Bay Area with such comprehensive trial models.

Thanks for the heads up, I'm planning a trip to Seoul this June or July, this is now on my list of shops to check out.

I'm going to Korea next Wednesday.

 

Definitely stopping by. I've been hitting up a few headphone / IEM shops in YongSan - in the world's largest electronics district, they have 2 or 3 stores that are just off the hook with good gear (and killer prices if you negotiate ahem* and well if the currency exchange rates are on your side... it was 1500 wons to the dollar that year. Amazing.

But the photos above really look promising. Do they have chairs?

Good god I need to visit that place next time I go home.  I've never been to a headphone store before.

Hi guys, i'm going to wonderland smily_headphones1.gif (Seoul)  next month and i'd like to buy several iem,  4-5 good for  300 $ amount
I've read many discussions and  ATH-CKS77 is probably the only one i'm really looking for....too many models, so i need your advice. 
 
I do hope i can test  the iem because there's nothing best than our ears...but with a short list i will not waste my time.
I've just bought the shure 215.

It's great to be Korean.  :]

 

Do you know a shop where I can demo the Unique Melody units in South Korea?
