Help! Where can I audition sennheiser HD700 or RS1i?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am seriously considering buying sennheiser HD700 or Grado RS1i. In order to make a choice I want to audition them first but as an international student I have no idea where can I do so. I live in Worcester which is near Boston. Does anyone know whether there is any audiophile store which provides audition of either of the headphones above?

 

Your answer really helps! THX!

Easiest way is going to a head-fier's meet. Have you checked if there's any where you live? or at a nearby place?

You can make a day trip to new york city and audition some high end sennheisers and grado's at the B&H store: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/

 

Keep in mind, the store is very busy, and may cause some ambience, which will interfere with your listening assessment (not that it's much different from most headphone meets)
 

Call them first to see if they have your desired headphones for demo.

There was a meeting at Boston University a week ago. Unfortunately I missed it >_<. Can't get the latest information of audiophiles' meeting, cause I know no audiophiles in the U.S.

Haha I am looking to audition. The same two phones next week. Hopefully I love one of them. Worst case I love both... Then we have a problem lol.
Guess I am after a more aggressive hd650.
Nice thick sound with some punch
