No I don't think he does.
I would love to be able to demo any headphone that might potentially interest me rather than having to rely on impressions of others, though usually mostly accurate.
Nonetheless, we all hear differently.
There were never many specialized hi-fi stores around here anyways but it'd be brilliant.
The funny thing here is I am seeing a decline in hi fi stores but an increase in headphone specific shops. That would make me hope that the return of the Demo is imminent. Be a shame for the "Buy before you try" attitude to permeate an emergent audio venue.
I think this could almost be a thread of it's own. "How do you think headphones should be sold?"
