I have heard about this place, there is a computer market there as well? A good place for a walk around?

 

 

They now have a website, not many headpones on the site though.

 

Talking about price, it was about 10 pounds difference from amazon uk.

The good thing about Tottenham Court Road is that you can haggle...

Superfi on Camden High Street were very helpful. I turned up this morning without warning and they were happy to let me try some phones. Even apologised for having sold out of one pair I wanted to try!

 

They offered to ring when the phones are back in stock and also offered to rig up a headphones amp as well.

 

All in all couldn't have been more helpful...

turned up there yesterday, actually to buy the the sr325 but I wanted to test some other headphones in the same price range just to make sure, tryed the B&W P5 and what a frustration in terms of sound  althought really confortable. Very helpful they were yes.

 

Also went to shasonic one week earlier to test some headphones in the large range of headphones they have there, the vendor was helpful, they also offered to match superfi's price.

 

Both good stores no doubt although with different focuses.

Visited Selfridges on Oxford street today, they had a decent selection inc the Ultrasone Signature DJ, 750 and 900 for try on with your own music, along with various akg, shures, bowers, sennheisers inc momentum and amperior. Could also try on Bayer t70p. Had more but cant remember rest.

Was good as was a able to rule out a few I thought would suit me. Also they had various on others on display such as edition 10, high end shures, senn 800,


John lewis had a less impressive range but still had the bowers, momemtums etc

Yea been to Selfridges, as well as Shasonic, and I'm looking for a place where I can try out Beyerdynamics now. If someone knows a place, that would be amazing.

Harrods has a good selection... of expensive stuff tongue.gif

 

They have Grados (from SR60 to PS1000), Ultrasones (including Edition 8 and 10), Q701, Senn HD700, HD800 and Momentum, and more.

 

At least I had the chance to see, touch and wear some top-of-the-line models I'll never be able to afford... tongue_smile.gif

 

Dunno if you can try them. Very few were actually connected to a source, and I didn't have my DAP with me, so I didn't enquire if you can try them.

Really? Harrods? I was there in 2011 Thanksgiving.. Albeit I wasn't an audiophile, but that is actually where I started being an audiophile as I found some UETF10's on Amazon for $95.

To save other time, neither debenhams or house of Frasier on oxford street have any headphones..

Also John Lewis have removed the sennheiser display area for other electricals so now displays are limited to a lot of bower &Wilkins p5/p3s along with the B&O range and a few Bose and monster.
