Demo Hifiman headphones in (East) Bay Area?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

First off, I'm sorry if this is misplaced but all the threads in the "Meets" section seemed more formal and this is kind of specific.

 

I'm really interested in a new set of cans.  After 4 years, I'm finally moving up from my esw9s.  I've spent a ton of time reading through the forum but am still struggling to decide between the he-400 and he-500 models.  Easy solution is letting my ears decide.  I've called a bunch of local shops but no one stocks them.  So I'm reaching out to the head-fi community. 

 

Any SF/Bay Area Head-Fiers with one or both sets of cans?  I'm in Berkeley but am willing to drive.

 

Thanks.

I would love to help as I live just outside SF in a town called Foster City. But I do not own any Hifiman headphones. Sorryfrown.gif

Seeing as someone else on the forums let me come to their place to listen to them, karma-wise I feel like I should return the favor.  I've got the HE-500, and you can come by if you want to listen to them.  Don't have the HE-400's.

Wolfetan, It's the thought that counts normal_smile%20.gif

 

SanJoseCanJunkie, assuming you're in San Jose, I'll shoot you a pm and see if we can figure out a day that works for you. I really appreciate it.

Setting up a time with SanJoseCanJunkie.

 

Anyone with a set of he-400? or he-500 closer to Berkeley?

If your meet with SanJoseCanJunkie doesn't pan out, you can listen to my he-500s.  I'm always looking for an excuse to visit my alma mater so I would be willing to meet somewhere on campus.  It should be noted that my setup is not quite as nice as SanJose's so if you can manage a meet with him I suggest you jump on the offer.

Thanks to SanJoseCanJunkie for the hospitality.  I really enjoyed listening to the he-500.  

 

Still looking to get my ears in some he-400.  Anybody out there?
