If you do message me before hand. Ill show you all the shops here :)
Thanks. I'll try to remember to do that and hope that my family and friends will be fine with that idea. :wink:

If I were in Hong Kong this summer, I could do the same for you but I am now in Toronto until August.

Hi everyone, as mentioned earlier I will be visiting Hong Kong soon with my family.

Main goal besides sight seeing is audition as much as possible gears, and in the end I will buy totl 1 iem and 1 headphone, then source out great deals from either shops or the second hand website if that item is found at the time of my visit

I have put the following stores to go to : DMA, JABEN Forever Source, Kingsound, Lets go audio

Sorry to keep asking but I have few questions

1- Is there a place to make customs ear tips to fit my iems, within 5 days, as that is really something I would like to have done
2- Do all those shops mentioned above accept visa
3- I know the last question might be difficult, I would like to buy an amp called KGSSHV for my stax headphones, that amp is made in Iceland so I guess finding it in Hong Kong will be difficult ( https://mjolnir-audio.com/products/ )

thanks so much
1. You can get earmolds for making custom IEMs but custom earmolds for regular IEMs, the place I used to go to (Widex) isn't taking orders for that anymore :frowning2:
2. Wanna meet up? :D

Anyone know if there is an offline shop that sells the Oriolus ba200s? I ve been planning to get it from Penon and have them ship to the hotel for them keep till my check in, but thats a bit sketchy. It would be great if the shop also has a demo for me to try.

Lear has consolidated into one HQ shop located in Kwun Tong. Unless you are a local, it's difficult to locate.

I believe it is here on the 2nd floor:

Just pass Kwun Tong Plaza (Yoshinoya & Starbucks) hugging the left a few minutes away.

Once you enter the building, use the lifts on the left hand side to get to the 2nd floor. If you go too far towards the right lifts, you need to backtrack.

Hi all. Hoping some forummers will be able to help - I’m visiting Hong Kong in two weeks and as I understand it, it’s a great city for electronics and, especially, good audio

So I’m after some recommendations for places to visit for auditioning IEMs and headphones and also cables and accessories. Stuff like the Dunu Hulk, or cheaper, good value for money cables etc, plus anyone who sells Campfire Audio IEM mesh bags....and any other interesting audio and electronic gear!

Of course I’m aware that plenty of members who live in Hong Kong probably have plenty of stuff on their mind right now given the situation there, but any advice you may have for me would be very much appreciated. :)
Here is an old foursquare site that has some photos of places to visit in Hong Kong:

https://foursquare.com/v/sim-city/4ba3a5f6f964a520d14f38e3

Sim City is the epicenter of what you maybe looking for in portable audio, especially cables. DMA's main shop is located here. DMA has other stores so it may throw you off if you are in the right place. The other DMAs are located in computer malls.

https://www.dma-audio.com/store-location/

From Sim City, Jaben is only a handful of minutes walk. Jaben is a little difficult of locate but as long as you don't stray too far from Sim City you should be able to find.

http://www.jaben.com.hk/

You may want to print out the photos above as the only Jaben sign seen from the street is that small sign w/ the headphone (top right).

Jaben has the van nuys twin tube iem case. I'm not familar with Campfire Audio products.

Ask for discounts. I always get a discount unless it's a newly released item, but YMMV.

You can also order online for in-store pickup at the local Fortress store if you are not sure the place you are purchasing is reputable or just too busy to shop. I have not tried having an order delivered to an hotel.

https://www.fortress.com.hk/en/shop/tv-entertainment/earphones-and-headphones/c/21?q=:

If you are looking for some kicks or exclusive Nike gear you cannot find at home, you can order from the official Nike store online and pickup at a local 7-11.

https://www.nike.com.hk/?locale=en-gb&intpromo=language2001

I'm not familiar with the Dunu Hulk, but did a query here:

https://www.price.com.hk/product.php?p=400719

You can print out the name of the store and ask around. Just click on the address and hope to find a Mong Kok address. The last store "Master & Media" I'm pretty sure it's located on one of the three floors of Sim City.

And here is a decent list of other electronics/PC stuff:

https://foursquare.com/user/24100670/list/places-for-gadgets-in-hong-kong

There's an Apple Store in TST now.

If you go to Macau that's one hour ferry ride across the pond, on the 5th or 6th floor; they have Campfire Audio for sale at their main department store:
