Uh oh, I have open headphones, but I'm open (no pun) to either open or closed. I don't want to be restricted to only one type though as I may not like closed headphones, I don't know.
I guess I need to re-think trying to attend as I may not be able to accomplish what I want. I was just looking to do two things: 1) Determine if the sound issue I sense is really my cans or what I am plugging into and 2) if it is my cans, an upgrade would be in order and therefore demo is mandatory. I can be done by 12:30pm fairly easy I think....I kind of have to be as other duties need to be done. The fact is that it is the only time and place in the entire state to demo headphones and such.
Sounds like #1 could be accomplished still, but can also be done outside the event I think.
Is it really that noisy? I mean it's all headphones, how noisey could it be? Is there going to be DJs with big speakers blaring migraine music or something? Are we talking about the same section? There are two sections as I understand it: The factory/vendor rep section and the party Head-fi section and the two do not meet is my understanding. I'm only interested in the former.
