What Are We About?

 

Our club is actually pretty simple. We are essentially a lounge of sorts for fellow headphone addicts who enjoy listening to music at a higher level. We also hope to act as a great collective resource for those who are looking forward to starting their own journey into the world of better sound. Our group is very informal and we welcome anyone who wants to participate.

 

Why Headphones/Earphones?

 

Why indeed? There are a few reasons. Headphones are mostly portable, though I stress that portable simply means you can use them wherever you go. For the price, you cannot beat the audio quality that headphones can afford. To achieve the same level of quality in speakers would cost a substantially higher price tag. They are also generally much easier to use and setup as at most, all you need to pair it up with would be an amplifier and D/A converter. 

 

Guidelines and Restrictions

 

1. Any headphones, earphones, or headsets of any brand are welcome. I realize this may be controversial, but everyone starts somewhere.

2. Please be respectful of each other. Remember that tastes in sound and music are very much subjective.

3. To join, simply fill out the form below in this same post and introduce yourself to us if possible. If you are shy, we understand!
