As well as getting a chance to experience all kinds of new developments in the headphone and amplifier industry, Metropolis will also give visitors a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes of one of Europe’s leading establishments for recording, mixing, and mastering, and staff will be on hand to give an insight to what happens during a recording or mastering session.

Headroom promises to give attendees the opportunity to experience over 35 of the world’s premium audio products. Brands already confirmed include Sennheiser, Audeze, Chord Electronics, Bang & Olufsen, Shure, Audioquest, STAX, HiFiMan, Audio Technica, ADL, Fostex, Light Harmonic, Yamaha, Pioneer, Resonessence and many more.

Headroom claims to be the world’s largest online store for headphones, amplifiers, and digital-to-analogue converters (DAC). Headroom has expanded its business from just retail however, as the company now conducts performance measurements and technical analysis of its products.

Metropolis Studios will provide the ideal setting for the event. Based in the historic Power House complex in Chiswick, Metropolis has the capacity but also the personality to make the event a memorable one.

Sponsoring the event is Tidal, the first high-fidelity lossless music streaming service. Each attendee of the show will be given a free, 30-day trial of the service, which is otherwise worth £20 in monthly subscription. Show-goers need only sign up, enter in their code, and enjoy unlimited CD-quality streaming for 30 days.

Throughout the course of the two-day show, presentations from UK audio industry personnel will look to unravel the mysteries behind digital audio technology and music streaming services. So far, presentations that have been confirmed include: home audio networking, CD quality music streaming, digital music conversion and music mastering. Visitors can also expect exclusive product launches from Chord, Astell & Kern, AudioQuest, Sennheiser, Arcam, and Bang & Olufsen.
