Just had a really fun visit to Selfridges, played with many cool headphones!!
I just had a trip to Selfridges to see what laptops they had in thier techy section, but was overwhelmed by how many headphones they had too. Apart from the entire Monster range (yawn) they also had several of the good Grados (SR125, PS500, PS1000), a load of Sony models, the entire Denon range (the AH-D600 sounded nice, but bassy), lots of Sennheisers models including the HD700 & HD800 (although no sign of the HD600/650). A bunch of Logic 3 Ferrari tat (which is being sold off super cheap at Advanced MP3 Players btw) and my favourite bit - the Bang & Olufson stand.
I so enjoyed trying out the B&O H6 and I can now see why Dale was so impressed by these babies! I'm going to try and get some in for review so I can compare it right next to the HD600. I think it's going to fair pretty well.
To anyone looking to try lots of really cool mid to high-end headphones I recommend going to either Selfridges or Harrods if you live close. I nearly went in the John Lewis (Oxofrd Street) as well, but I was too tired by that point, I will try to do that one soon. If you want a more personal touch and you live in or near London I can highly recommend Custom Cable (which I want to do an article on). If you're near Brighton Hifi-Headphones have a great looking showroom (although you need to book an appointment for that one), I must try that one out soon!!
