Shure SE846 going to Melvin B. for his charcoal rendition of sanctuary:

It's about our experience with our Muse. The Headroom Airhead is our way to enjoy listening at the same time, two at a time of course.

Shure SE846 going to Jake R. - We loved his story of a troubled student turned focused by headphones. We wonder what an amazing pair of headphones would do for his studies. We'll find out!

Shure SE535 LTD going to Mark B who says,

"Headphones (with a decent source full of quality content) can turn hell...into heaven!"

Shure SE425 going to Ethan P. -

"Ritualistically now I listen to CDs on my couch with a 21 year old CD player. I close my eyes and lay back, letting go of all the nonsense. This is my sanctuary. This is my journey to the present."

Shure SE315 going to John F. as it sounds like this guy really needs a good pair of noise isolating in-ear headphones.

What do headphones mean to me? Try public transportation in the morning. From taking the NJ Transit bus and the PATH to New York City, my morning commute is filled with background noise. The only serenity I have is in my ear buds. While the headphones I have don't block the noise or go very loud, they provide me with the peace I need, to conquer the day. With this prize, it would make mornings that much better!

#MyHeadRoom make my day!

Shure SRH1540 headphones going to Walton N. for thinking about somebody else first. We hope he might give them to his buddy but we understand if he keeps them and passes along his older headphones. Here's a summary of his entry:

A friend of mine rang me up the other day, said it was time to replace the old Jays “in-ear” phones I purchased for him from Headroom. He had had them, obviously, for several years and just wanted something new and updated, wasn't sure what to purchase...My buddy is still trying to make up his mind and I am confident he will make the right one for him....I can only wish him the same success I enjoy daily.

Shure SRH840 going to Max W. - We're hoping this brings Max a little bit of much needed sanctuary.

We decided to add a bonus to the giveaway, Shure SRH440's going to Lindenwold Middle School for their student submission.


Winners will also be contacted via email to make sure we have your correct shipping address.

Hello. I just received my Shure SE846! Let me start by saying Thank You HeadRoom and WOW!!! You just don’t sonically know what you’re missing until you have the opportunity to hear more. It really is like seeing and painting with a fuller range of colors after having a good but limited palette. Or standing in front of a painting after only seeing a reproduction of it. In its presence you can get a truer sense of size, texture, and depth. I’ve read reviews of these earphones so there isn’t much I can add of value except to say that lower bass clarity is superb to my ears.
Thank you again HeadRoom!

I received my Shure 535"Prize Winnings" yesterday! I had just spent the day at work drafting my summer travel schedule so it was great to get my portable paradise upgrade kit to help convert all those airplane/airport hours into poolside listening pleasure! Thanks again for guiding my headphone buying and for picking me to receive these sweet IEMs.
