I am always recommending people to actually go out and try headphones before buying. This is coming from someone who writes reviews. Reviews and forum help can be useful, but there comes a point where properly trying out headphones is needed. There are lots of shops that allow you to play with headphones, but proper headphone demo rooms are few and far between, so I've decided to write an article on one such place that I found near London - Custom Cable.
(I mention it in the article, but I will say it here too - I am not affiliated with Custom Cable. This is written purely off my own back and I've done it because I think this kind of place is great. They deserve to be supported and you owe it to yourself to take advantage of them).
I'm also planning to write about Hifi-Headphones' demo room, near Brighton. If you know of any others that might like this kind of coverage then please let me know.
