Last February's cold was broken by an intimate gathering of the maddest audiophiles around Japan. It's now May and temperatures tip above 20 degrees on any given day. Three months is a long time to go without a show - especially for us nerds.
Saturday 11 May, Fujiya Avic kicks off their Spring Headphone show in Tokyo. Most of Japan's big makers will be there as well as the upstarts and outgrowths of former biggies. Ω image is looking forward to meeting the local crazies as well as Headfi's most febrile lot: the Tokyo group. Expect pictures and endless, lusty slobber from the lot.
Follow #hpfes for more information.
UPDATE: Ω's impressions of #HPFES2013 can be found here.
開催日 ： 2013年5月11日 (土曜日)
開催時間 ： 10：30 開場 - 18:30 終了
会場 ： スタジアムプレイス（青山東京メトロ銀座線 「外苑前」駅３番出口 徒歩２分）
COMMING SOON - ポタフェス
Not to be outdone, e-earphone will host a two-day show in Osaka on the 25-26 weekend. 2013 looks to be the year of e-earphone. Every time I set foot in that shop, I get giggly pimples of excitement. Naturally, Ω will make it to their show. The Tokyo group? I have no idea, but I hope I'll see at least one.
Japan is full of trade shows and large, nerdy gatherings. If you're in the area, stop by, say hi; we can toast amps/DACs and squeal with delight like the girl scouts we really are.
