    I'm happy to announce an official world wide Head Fi Review tour for the Alara!


    So what I will be asking is that each interested reviewer please list;
    • your name,
    • your location
    • and list any previous reviews you have done
    Additionally I am also looking for assistance in organizing and managing the the "non EU and US" area's so if your able and feel your qualified to do this please PM me directly.

    Sign ups for this will run Sunday January 6th and on the 7th we will announce the reviewers and tour order!

    For now here are some more details about the Alara!

    I am interested. But if there's others who want to line up for it, then I can surrender a position as well, as I have a backlog of stuff to get to.

    I'm interested for sure, being the Planar junkie that I am. PM inbound.

    These look quite interesting. If available, I'd like to participate.

    Previous reviews with all applicable written reviews linked in the description.

    I wouldn't mind reviewing these. I own HE400i and have reviewed Edition X so have some experience with Planar technology.

    Come one, everybody!

    The European Tour is still open, this is a really interestring midrange Open-back Planar Headphone! :)

    Also, made by Brainwavz, the company making all those earpads people recommend using on other headphones because they are better than most stock pads!

    EDIT: I just noticed, but this tour has the shipping sponsored by Brainwavz as well! This means that there's no cost in being part of it, if FexEX is available in your area!!

    That said @Dobrescu George and I will be co managing this tour! For those of your interested please continue to PM me links to any reviews you've done previously in addition to answering the other inquires I've asked for, but once the tour starts @Dobrescu George will be communicating with you guys directly to make sure everything in the EU proceeds smoothly!

    Also @Brooko good to see your thoughts on it! Thank you

    I'm in too!

    I have a pretty cool "best open back headphones under $500" theme figured out. I will be comparing alara to iBasso sr1, sennheiser hd650/hd700, shure srh1540, Grado rs2i, hifiman he400/400i/560, ollo S4, onkyo a800 and audioquest Nighthawk carbon. I might also include jvc hp-dx700. It is good enough to be included enough even though it is closed back headphone.

    I will use hd800 as a reference if one of the mentioned possibility performs closer to a $1000 headphone than one at $300-500.

    For desktop setup it will be Hegel hd10-spl phonitor and for portable chord mojo. Modi-vali stack might make a guest appearence too.

    Also I will measure the headphones with mini dsp EARS.
