“I’m writing from my hotel room in Essen, waiting to leave to the Köln-Bonn Airport.
I spent the last two days behind a a table, demonstrating the new Marley Headphones Amplifier to a few enthusiast and discerning headphones lovers.”
“Very few, I must say. More reviewers than visitors (which is not strange, as Germany has as many as 8 hifi magazines!), so the show was quite unlike the crowded trade fairs we are used to. Nothing to compare with similar Far East events.”
But it was a very important first time and somebody had to do it in Europe. Kudos to Carsten Hicking from distributor company Higoto for starting it all.”
“Headphones listening is likely to be the main way to enjoy good quality music within a few years, when all music lovers will be today’s young people, used to listen to iPods and smartphones by headphones and looking for better quality.”
“Moreover, it’s much easier to make up a high-end headphones system with 2,500€ than a classic speakers system. In times of crisis, this is overly important.”
“It seems that there will be a similar event in Italy very soon, I’ll give you more information in one of my next posts.”
