Buying headphones?

Postby lukpac » Thu Dec 29, 2005 5:43 pm

Anyone live near a place where you can *demo* headphones? There are a couple places around here, but the only have Grado and Sennheiser. I'm trying to demo the various Fostex models, but the only place I've found that has them around here doesn't let you listen. All the other places that carry Fostex don't sell headphones.

I thought Fostex was an acne treatment.

Any Guitar Centers around by you, Luke? I think they carry the Fostex line.

It's been a while, but when I was looking I called them, and they said they didn't have the headphones.
