Headroom 2016 starts this Friday
Headroom was great last year and Headroom 2016 is shaping up to be even better!
It was the first time for Headroom 12 months ago and the venue, London’s famous Metropolis Studios, was rammed with a huge range of personal Hi-Fi gear – amps, DACs, headphones, earphones, in-ear monitors, cables – you name it, it was there.
As Metropolis uses PMC monitors in their rooms, the company had their huge BB5s looming in the bar area. Not exactly portable but really lovely.

Headroom will be the ideal place to get your hands on first with great new audio devices such as:

Plus Grammy award-winning engineers and Hi-Fi luminaries will be hosting presentations throughout the weekend and what’s more it’s all being held at Metropolis Studios, the most successful independent recording, mastering, creative and production facility in Europe.
Metropolis’ stunning Grade II ‘Power House’ complex has been the recording home to Michael Jackson; the Rolling Stones; Amy Winehouse; U2; The Clash; Madonna and so many more.
