Hi fellow UK folks. Just thought I'd let you all know that Selfridges has a very decent range of headphones in a dedicated headphone area of their store in Birmingham (I'm assuming the same in London as well). It's only been there 6 weeks or so but the staff seemed knowledgable and willing to let me try whatever I wanted.
I only had a brief look around but here are the more interesting phones I spotted:
- AKG 550 (sounded very nice BTW)
- Sennheiser RS 220
- Sennheiser HD700
- Logitech UE 6000 and 9000
I hope to go back when it's less busy and have a good listen.
