Hi everyone,

Not sure I have seen ever such a thread around here and I thought it could be really fun to create one

Let me explain: when handling headphones, we usually give importance to factors like their physical appearance, their look and design, the build quality and also probably the overall feeling translated by the headphones: luxurious or rather budget finition...

Yes, but what about their smell...

It is no joke, each headphone has a smell of its own, especially when new. We might get used to it after a "burning" period

. When I reach for my HD650, still less than 3 months old, I really enjoy for example the flavour perceived much more than the smelly plastic flavour of my ex-SR-303...

Do you think this factor could contribute to the overall first impression we get when trying a pair of headphones. Wouldn't that be a fantastic marketing tool !

Please share your experience with us and let's not be too serious
