Finding some product...
Hope to see you again on next tokyo headphone show!
Good stuff. 30 minute episode is the pay off for all the waiting. :D
Definitely want to go (I could see it happening at the fall show in 2013) some day. I think I'd just take a ton of money and blow it all on new toys. Sounds way more fun than just having them slowly trickle in via online buys.
I'm definitely visiting Tokyo one day in the future with LOADS of cash just for headphones. My jaw dropped when i saw those headphone stores.
The Fostex TH900 and the Audio-Technica 3000ANV look Amazing! I have never seen wood look so stylish before! Just like those wooden Iphone cases (How much are they? And could i use them for an IPod Touch since they are practically alike in design? lol)!
Sadly those two headphones are out of my budget for my age. I'll stick to being a proud owner of V-Moda M-80s. :P
Edit: Would the wood happen to be Hacoa? Having trouble finding those cases with the art online. :|
AFAIK, they have no distribution outside of the Japan. But if you are interested, you could email them. They speak English perfectly. (I say that b/c it's not always the case.)
Yes, there are some stores in the US to try out some top tier headphones.
There was a funny story about that ('Boo'): Arnaud was with Val and talking to the guys there (at e-earphone). And although Arnaud speaks Japanese quite well, it somehow wasn't coming across that Val was the actual owner of V-MODA. I guess Val's photo is on the box of the LP2s; so Arnaud grabbed one of the boxes and pointed to it... and the lights went on big time! They sort of jumped back, started to bow- the whole thing. It was pretty hilarious!
Ahhh.. that makes sense.. glad you cleared that up! I wish I had my camera out at that moment. On a different note, I really need to hanami one of these days.
