• Headphones and Audio Gear with Currawong

    1,380 views 2 months ago
    Back in 2007, the foam pads on my headphones, which I'd had for ~15 years, had gone flat. So after being overwhelmed by the electronics stores here in Japan, I headed over to Head-Fi.org to find out what I should buy. Now after 9+ years, numerous headphones and a lot of audio gear, join me in checking out some of the headphones, IEMs and other personal audio gear available, as well as the headphone scene in Japan.

    You can find me on Head-Fi as "Currawong".
