Shops where you can audition headphones.
Since there have been a number of posts about the difficulties of auditioning headphones, I thought a list of shops where you can listen to headphones would be helpful. I dont want to included shops where it is hit and miss as to whether you be able to listen to the headphones they sell, as I have found with Richer Sounds. They want you to buy and take away the headphones, with a promise of a refund if you dont like them. I am also not including headphones that are sold, but you cannot audition first. There is also no guarantee any model will be there.
The Apple Store, Buchanan St, Glasgow - B&W P5, Bose QuietComfort and Around-Ear, Dr Dre Beats, Sony MDR NC-60 and some cheaper Sennheisers. There is a preference towards Noise Reduction headphones from each model range.
John Lewis, Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow - Denon AH D1001, JVC HA S150BN, SonyMDR V300DJ
Currys/PC World, Braehead, Renfrew - Sennheiser everything from the HD201 to mid range £150, various Philips and Beats by Dr Dre.
I will add more shops as I find them. Please add any you know of.Thanks.
