@WalkGood - you truly show your wisdom with this statement. Plus, I think maybe lestatar hasn't actually realized his calling yet,...but you most certainly have. Bravo!!!

lols...you guys are awesome..

Very sorry no time for impressions yet - will do soon, promise, if anyone cares

Truly, they have everything. Even DAPs as you can see, Cowons, Sonys, iRivers and Philips. 9000 kinds of tips but incredibly no Sony Hybrids for me

Best part is EVERYTHING is available for people to try out. They have stashes of tips for people to use and maybe you noticed the baby wipes all over the place? You can basically sit your ass down and go to town for hours, days, weeks...

Incredible.

When I told them that even in NYC there is NOTHING like this, they were shocked.

Only bad part: they obviously had that HyFyman junk, but hey, with a setup like that, they are entitled. Gotta pay the rent right?

Of course, you guys are who I thought of first. Will for sure be going back there and trying to check out their other locations - pics fo' sure.

And this is a serious offer - as long as I am in HK and staying where I am right now, anyone who actually gets their ass to Hong Kong always has a bedroom to crash in - free. Well, maybe a few drinks and such

Glad u guys appreciate this joint...gonna go back and tell Mingo's about ABi. Maybe get them involved somehow...I love making deals.

We expect a review of the HiFiMan from you next!

Edit....someone on Head-Fi that has an iPod Touch 3G and an HM-801 said he could make them sound the same by turning on the "treble reducer" preset on the Touch 3G....I found that quite amusing.

Lestatar, you should definitely try the Radius DDM2 "W N°2", the JVC FX700, and the Sony EX600/EX1000 in that store, if you have the possibility. I somehow would think you'd like them. I'd love to destroy your wallet.

Radius is good for its price, but the design I find strange. Cos to get a good seal I need to twist around (as if wearing over-ear iems) and then the thing is sticking out longer than TF10...

In the corner shown in the last 2 pictures, I guess you will need like 1 month to try every headphone shown there with every amp connected beside it

I soldered a new plug to my DDM2, with channels reversed, so I can wear them with the cables over the ears. This gives a much better fit, and I have no issues with the DDM2 at all (unlike the DDM1 or the EX1000, which have a really horrible fit for my ears). I also use Super.Fi silicone tips with them, and get a perfect seal every time.

I! Also! Noticed the NuForce!

Wow that store is amazing!!! Thank you for sharing, Lestatar! I'll certainly visit it if I ever make it to HK.

I get the "sanitary" tissues for those cans to try out, but what about IEMs? Do people just try them inside their ears without worries?

Great photos, I actually spotted two products I own
