Does anybody else participate in demo/audio tours through headfi or another site? If so please provide which ones you participate in, any feedback on the process, the associated costs/requirements, etc…
I participate on Audio Tiers (Bill Barra) whom I “met” on headfi (https://audiotiers.com/).
Next week will be my 3rd tour and the only cost is having to ship the product to the next tour member via UPS/USPS insured and signature required. I’ve tried a set of IEMs and the Burson Conductor 3XP and next up I’m getting a kit that has the Fir Audio M2, M3, M4, M5. It’s pretty sweat that I get to try out an entire lineup of a companies’ IEMs from entry level to Flagship ~$5k of products with really only a $30 shipping charge.
He typically will do a kickoff video introduce the tour package and a brief overview of them and possibly a review:
Anyway without a better network of dealers and shows to try products I find this an interesting method of getting your hands on products. Please share your methods!
