You know, one thing that seems almost odd in those pictures, is how everything is piled up on one big table in the middle, and everyone's sitting in chairs surrounding the table. It's like it's a big battle arena, and one person goes up and chooses a pair of headphones, and another person goes up and chooses another, and Pow! the battle is on! Which cans will the challenger choose? Which headphone will reign supreme?!

(here's another pic from another thread for comparison

Gee, it isn't like you'd expect a few cultural differences in the way social gatherings are organized...

Well, I think it's more about whether those people around were new to Hi-Fi or not. I wouldn't allow newbies to use an expensive equipment without a clear explanation.

It still seems more formal than most gatherings I've seen pictures of (or been to) in the U.S./Europe... I figured that was a cultural thing, but could be wrong.

Not wrong, there's a cultural background for sure, I agree that the meeting seems to be more formal/less individual. It depends how the meeting has been organized and who organize it and hosted it (individuals, company...)

We should be discussing the great gears they have there, instead of discussing cultural differences. Frankly I am amazed they have such nice gear. Way to go fellow headfiers in the far east!

Ooh nice meet! A lot of nice gear and people - it must have been fun!


Two questions though...

Where was this meet? Beijing?

Are all those people Head-Fi members or members of another online (or offline, I suppose) headphone gathering?
