Monster Invites HeadRoom to the Grammy’s!

Man, what a shindig! HeadRoom was graciously invited by Noel Lee and Monster Cable to Hollywood CA on January 27 for a Producers/Engineers Grammy Week event featuring the launch of Monster TurbinePRO C opperin-ear headphones.

In attendance were Ivy Burford, HeadRoom's Marketing Manager, and,  yours truly, Jorge Cervera HeadRoom Sales & Service Manager, escorted by Monster Sales Manager Courtney Sisson and Monster Sales Director Deena Ghazarian.

As one of the few experts who've been able to compare the TurbinePROs to a vast array of other in-ear products, our HeadRoom testimonial to the TurbinePRO's analytical clarity, dynamic range extension, and musical neutrality was key to Monster's presentation at this important event, which is held annually in support of the film & record industry's most well-known producers, recordists, and audio engineers.

Of course, it was Monster's room that seemed the most consistently packed to the rafters as musicians like Jackson Browne, Jimmy Jam, Blondie Chaplin from The Rolling Stones, and 'monstrous' Steely Dan/Michael Jackson drummer Ricky Lawson communed with Monster founder Noel Lee and listened to the TurbinePRO earphones. Celebrities or not, all who got a chance to spend some ear time with the TurbinePro seemed transported to that place where music remains as pure as the artists intended it.
A kind thanks from HeadRoom to all at Monster for their wonderful headphones and superb hospitality!

Fostex TH-610 Review
Fostex TH-610 Review

The Fostex TH-610 full-size closed headphone incorporates the new ‘Bio-Dyna’ diaphragm taken from the upscale Fostex TH-900 MkII, but at a way lower price than that flagship model. The Fostex TH-610 musical performance is just a notch below the pricey TH-900, making it a truly excellent bang-for-the-buck value.
