With the Spring 2012 Tokyo Headphone Festival coming soon (on May 12, 2012), I thought it'd be a great time to take a look back at the last Tokyo Headphone Festival. So it's time to board Head-Fi Airlines, go back with me to Tokyo, Japan, and check out this awesome event!

Can't wait! The Fostex HP-A8C still has my attention. Been a long time since I've heard about it.

Brilliant video, Jude! What's interesting is that even though I was there, the video still has some surprising products which I completely missed at the show! Cheers!

What's the job of Jude actually, lol? Independent warrior, webmaster, editor, incarnation of a hobby (he's really all about headphones)?

 

Can't wait to hear more about the TH900 and the HP-A8C... I love Japan and my ADL GT40 (there's a picture of it in the slideshow at the end of the video yay!)

Oh! I do, too (that's for sure :-)... Tokyo looks awesome, and they look even more into headphones than anywhere else, city I can think of... even in my engineering school people and electronic engineers buys, uses and wears el-cheapo headphones, either no-names unbranded types, or the cheapest possible Sony, JVC and if I'm lucky, yes, Sennheiser.

 

They buy like one per year and enjoy mistreating it, of course, that's why they always end up broken.

 

 

Me I do some research before buying a product and I want to ensure I will appreciate the purchase, as far as pleasure-inducing stuff goes. Just like when picking a restaurant, why always return to McDonald's when there is so much more elsewhere.

 

Still I will say that music is more important to me than it is for most other people I see in my every day life, so that's a factor for me, yes, explaining why I chose to focus and spend so much of my attention onto headphones.

Yeah, before I got a gaming headset a few months ago (yes, a headset, and it sounds suprisingly good with eq'ing somewhat), I searched for so much, I searched a few hours everyday on the net. But thats fun imo! :D

Hate to nitpick, but the LCD-3 isn't an electrostat.

Fixed. Thanks for pointing that out that mistake. It must've just been pasted from the Stax SR-009 line. Sorry.

And here I was debating whether or not to go on a trip this summer... makes me want to go even more!!

Too bad this hobby really does feed on whatever may have been used on the plane tickets lol.

May 12 is a bit early but thanks to this very informative video, I now know much more and better stores to audition headphones! Time to stray from mainstream store (minus YodabashiCamera!)
