Do you want to try before you buy? Curious what “the big deal” is with Planar Magnetic headphones? Hoping for a consensus opinion from unpaid reviews? Answering the call, Dekoni is sponsoring a “Review Tour” for our Dekoni Blue Headphone.
We’re also well aware that the Fostex T50RP MK III that the Blue is based on is also one of the harder to drive headphones on the market... so we’ll also ship along a Fostex HP-A4 Digital Amplifier, so you can hear for yourself the difference a desktop amplifier (and DAC) can make in bringing out more of the Blue potential. Don’t miss the chance to try a higher end, boutique headphone, just for the price of one way shipping!
Joining the tour is easy: post your interest in this thread and that you agree to the terms and conditions, and we’ll supply the headphones and help you with the rest. If you post a review, impressions, or photos on Instagram, please tag them with #DekoniBlue

We also made a fun playlist of songs that sound great on the Blue!
Loaner Program Terms and Conditions
This tour is currently in the USA only. You can keep the loaner Blue for a week. Enjoy the headphones! A review is optional but much appreciated by Dekoni and everyone next in line, or post pictures on Facebook or Instagram tagged with #DekoniBlue so people can see them “in the wild.”
You must be OK with your real name and address being privately provided to another person in the forums for shipping purposes. The DekoniAudio account (marked as “Sponsor” by Head-Fi) will contact you privately to communicate shipping information. You are responsible for the shipping cost to send the loaner along. You can use any shipping method you prefer (UPS, FedEx, USPS) but a tracking number is required.
Please post in this thread upon receipt of the Blue, and when you have shipped the headphones out to the next person on the tour.
Please take care of the headphones and accessories, and do not modify them either.
