Sound Days 2018, Paris, Vinyl, Streaming and Headphones Exhibition

Posted by No comments

Sound-Days-Paris-2018While most French and French speaking exhibitions generally take place at the end of the year, May is also a good time for trade shows and exhibitions, almost when they are marked with a bit of originality or rather for gigantic High Fidelity Exhibitions like the Munich High End that just ended recently. In Paris, an atypical High Fidelity Exhibition is now held in May, since a few years only.

Indeed, it is at the Carreau du Temple that the weekend of May 26 and 27, 2018 Sound Days will host a large number of famous brands, specifically related to the world of headphones, vinyl and dematerialized music. If the idea is rather original, you know like me that the market for headphones, classic or in-ear, continues to grow, to the delight of our ears. Young people are also very fond of big headphones, lugging everywhere to the point that it gives them a kind of Mickey’s ears appearance even if I find such demonstration really ridiculous, it’s may be a question of generation anyhow…

The Sound Days 2018, a new High Fidelity Exhibition, exclusively dedicated to the world of headphones, vinyl and streaming

sound-days-parisStill, the Sound Days 2018 edition will be held at the Cultural Center of the Carreau du Temple in the 3rd arrondissement, at 4 rue Eugene Spuller, in the historic district of the Marais.

In other words, the place is particularly well located and is conducive to musical culture. Talking about streaming and vinyl, I’m not going to give fresh news by telling you that here too, we are in full booming of the market and full rediscovery of the joys of vinyl, with its sounds, singing so much and purely analog to our ears. Nevertheless, there is no need here to restart a dialogue of the deaf (and at least ridiculous) on the supposed superiority of analogue on digital. The very existence of this new show proves that this debate is today largely outdated. On the program of the week-end, more than 80 exhibitors will make the trip to the Sound Days 2018, and we will see several major brands such as B & W, Beyerdynamic, Furutech, Chord, Naim, Rega, Marantz, NuPrime, Onkyo, Klipsh and many others…

The best brands of headphones such like Grado, Stax, Earsonics or Meze Audio will be at the Sound Days 2018

Sound-days-Paris-2018About headphones, we will also benefit from the presence of Final Audio, Stax, Grado, Meze Audio (and I’m still not back from my emotions of this surprising listening to their headphones in Munich!…), JHAudio, Sennheiser, AKG, Audeze, Astell & Kern (which not only makes excellent headphones but also very good digital players) and Fiio which precisely, also offers digital walkmans at affordable prices. The talented French Earsonics will also be present during this weekend to enchant our ears, their absence would have been really a shame!

About vinyl and analog music, we will also be gratified by the presence of Rega (obviously!), Clear Audio (obviously! again), Ortofon, Pro-Ject Audio (of course). Some other brands that greatly delight my little heart of audiophile will also be on the show including my favorite brand of cable, JPS Labs, and Pathos, Shanling (at least for its digital music players), Dali (from the moment that their speakers are connected to something other than a low-end NAD system). Among those who are indifferent to me (to remain polite), such as Audioquest cables, B & O, Pionneer, Sony or Yamaha will come to encumber a few square meters of this new edition of the Sound Days 2018.

The Sound Days 2018 are sponsorised by Son-Video.com

The event is supported and organised by Son-Vidéo.com and most importantly, the Sound Days 2018 is a FREE High Fidelity Exhibition. All you have to do is to register online on their Website or on Son-Vidéo.com. In these conditions, and to see the number of brands of quality that will be present during this show, I take this opportunity to thank the organizers greatly. On these beautiful words, I meet you Saturday, May 26 for the Sound Days at the Carreau du Temple in Paris 🙂
