Hello fellow Southern California Head-fiers. I decided this was the most appropriate place to put this request.
I'm 29 years old, husband and father of two, and molecular biology major / Jack of many trades. Haven't been on the Head-fi journey very long, just about 18 months with various breaks in between. I've gone from general gaming headphones to budget IEMS, to Ath-M50s, and finally worked my way up to a set of Mr.Speakers Mad Dogs and a Schiit Magni/Modi stack. I've been enjoying them very much, and I just send them in for the 3.0 -> 3.2 upgrade. One of my main reasons for buying the Mad Dogs was excellent isolation to not wake up my family, and they didn't disappoint. Now I'm looking to add to my collection.
I tried, unsuccessfully so far, to find other CSUF students here on the forums. Hopefully this will open up new doors.
There are some great looking meets/shows coming up: "The Show" in Newport, and also a Head-Fi meet in the Los Angeles area coming up. I'm hoping to be able to make it out to one, if not both. However, it might not be possible. So...
1. I'm looking to audition various Headphones/IEMs/Equipment that I'm considering for my next purchase.
2. It would be nice to get to know some of the Orange County, (Fullerton*), and other Southern California Head-fiers.
3. Learn from others and experience music in different ways.
4. Anyone could use this page to meet one on one, group get-together, or small parties around Orange County.
***not to setup full blow meets.
I'd like this to be an ongoing page for all rather than just a one time event for myself.
Where -- I'm located in the Laguna/Mission Viejo areas of South Orange County, CA.
We could meet in public places such as Starbucks, Campuses, etc. Meeting at someones home is fine as long as they
are comfortable. Anywhere we can make it work is good for me.
***(Also, personal to myself, I'm on campus at CSUF in Fullerton, CA each week and would love to meet Head-fiers in
that area as well)
When -- Many of us are busy, myself included, so times and dates will have to be worked out on an individual basis.
How -- Feel free to post here if you are able/interested. Also, feel free to list any gear you are comfortable with letting others
audition, as well as any gear that you would like to audition.
Additionally, feel free to PM me.
Looking forward to meeting any/all those that are interested!
UPCOMING MINI-MEET: Please Post/PM if attending & the gear you'll be bringing.
Location: Currently, University of California Irvine. May change depending on availability.
