I won't be in a position to purchase at the time, but the info I gather and most importantly the auditioning I'll be able to do I hope will prove quite valuable for my future purchase which I'm looking at possibly around May or so.

 

Yes, that's EXACTLY the benefit of a mega show like this.

I'm coming for sure!  

 

By the way was hopping that Channel D was coming so I could hopefully pick it up at a discount. I didn't see them on the list so I called and asked if they were coming and they said they knew nothing about it. Am I the only one who wants to rip vinyl to my Digital player? And is any body activley seeking vendors? Just thought i'd ask cant wait!

I'm not wanting to get into the weeds with headphones and I'm not a party type. I'm one of those guys that are there for a few hours and gone. I like to keep it strictly business. 

Just judging from the list of exhibitors so far, it already looks like almost everybody I want to talk with and whatnot will be there....except, Where is Sennheiser? Aren't they coming? I really hope so! They made it possible for me to get my first decent pair of headphones in my life after 23 failures of other brands and models.I didn't think one could get half way comfortable cans for less than the price of a new sports car until I ran into the Sennheiser reps at an event some 5 years ago.

 

So that said, count me in! (Although I will have to wait to get my ticket until closer to the day of the event as I do not know what my schedule looks like yet).


I'm sure several of the user demos will include Sennheiser cans.

By "user demos" do you mean folks bringing their own gear to showcase or official manufacture representation?

I'm sure some folks have some lovely stuff and all, but I am not in the least bit interested in seeing what everyone uses for their rigs. That won't help me. I'm not a headphones guy, I just use cans on occasion with the gear I have on hand and of course want them to sound decent and be comfortable.

If the event is mostly just seeing what others use and some sort of party, then I don't want to waste my time and money by going. I thought it was perhaps both official manufacture tables or what have you and a party with the two being somewhat separate in a way. I like keeping things kind of strictly business, personally.

All of the listed exhibitors are the actual companies themselves exhibiting their products at this show. "User demos" refers to the Member Showcase, which is a separate (and smaller) component of the show.

Quick newbie question, what is the best way to go about auditioning IEM at these events? Do you bring your own set of tips or...? Looking forward to attending 1 of the 2 days. Thanks, Scott

post #294 of 1339

Scott - Great question. All the IEM vendors will have a big bowl of new tips for you to use for auditions. They then chuck them when you're done in order to keep things tidy. Cheers

For me, starting with the Member Showcase is the only way to do these shows. Walking around the room and finding something nice to say about every single person's rig and thanking them for going to the trouble of sharing somehow puts me in the perfect frame of mind for the barrage of commercialism that is the 'main attraction'. If you don't have time for the Member Showcase, watch this video before you go...

Ah, thank you.

That's what I had pictured.:smile:

Like I said, I'm sure everyone in the Member Showcase has a nice setup and should enjoy sharing and I would have a hard time trying to find anything negative to say anyway. I have very limited knowledge in headphone world so I could not comment if I wanted to. For me though I'd be wasting time going through that section first as I am not looking to build an uber setup and not really "into" headphones. To me personally, headphones are just an occasional necessary tool.

If I was looking to build a headphone system, I'd also start with the Member Showcase like you said as there are probably great ideas for that, not to mention user real time info and such.

I can filter through commercialism pretty darn well (I have a hair-trigger BS meter), so I'm not worried about that.

Most had a big bowl if tips that you could keep or toss after you were done with them. There were a few in previous events that had alcohol swabs and was cleaning tips after uses. It isn't uncommon for people to bring their own tips. The last head fi meet I brought my collection of headphones and brought a box of tips that I could tip roll with my personal tips.

The member areas are usually my favorite areas to go and be. Everybody there is always friendly and willing to talk. And diversity of headphones on display is pretty awesome.

 

Member area at the last LA meet was just a few of us in a room talking with each other and with people coming in the room. Some of us would get up to stretch our legs and explore the rest of the show, others in the room would watch our gear. Super chill atmosphere.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating to myself (or anyone) to avoid the members area, it's just not first on my list for my purposes and needs. That said, since I am bothering to pay the spendy admission/parking fee, I'm keen to make a day of it which will mean a visit to the members area eventually. I guess I'm just approaching it from the opposite direction. Talk with the manufacture/commercial reps, see what's what and then visit the members area to get feedback from the users who may have been using said items of interest from the manufacture/commercial areas.
