The 5th Annual HeadRoom & Friends event proved to be an all-out Southern California headphone extravaganza as predicted by Bob Levi and Los Angeles/Orange County Audiophile Society with nearly 200 attendees and 20 manufacturers & vendors exhibiting the very best headphone-land has to offer. Probably the largest crowd ever to witness a dedicated headphone event in Los Angeles came out to Buena Park on perfect Sunday afternoon to immerse themselves in the world's top headphones of every possible type, style and permutation.

The Head-Fi.org crew was well-represented and featured awesome head-amp creations and unique headphones not seen anywhere else. The high-end raffle proved outrageously successful with 2,000 raffle tickets sold vying for almost $10,000 in free audio and headphone giveaways. The swanky HeadRoom tables rocked 10 individual listening stations displaying our wares all the way from entry-level portable gear to our uber reference balanced headphone systems. As usual, space was at a premium and folks clamored to hear our balanced Audeze LCD-2 planar magnetic cans via the HeadRoom BUDA/UDAC/DPS 'Triple Stack' systems, along with balanced HiFiMAN HE6 and HE500 headphones, Beyerdynamic T1 and Sennheiser HD800 also in balanced modes. Next year's HeadRoom & Friends promises to add an hour to the event since the overflow crowds went home wanting  to hear more, more, more -- which HeadRoom is always happy to provide Right Between The Ears!

Chord Mojo Amp/DAC Review

The little Chord Mojo is the high-end traveling audiophile's full monty headphone amp/DAC unit from England. Expect superior high-resolution sound with any reference headphone or in-ears. There is some seriously hot-rodded musical performance lurking under the Mojo's slick bonnet.

No question about it. The Focal Utopia is one of best headphones ever made. It’s hard taking it off our head even to write this review. Like a headphone teleportation device from the future, the Focal Utopia beams you up and materializes you right into the inner reality of the music.

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.
