Headphone Comparison Day

Join us for a drink and a listen to headphones from Audeze, Stax, Sennheiser, Martin Logan, KEF, Musical Fidelity.

Saturday 10th October 11am to 4pm

And for a bit of fun Sennheiser are bringing their only pair of the very limited edition £10,000 Orpheus headphones.

In 1990, Sennheiser engineers set out to create the best headphones in the world. The result was the legendary Sennheiser Orpheus, a pair of audiophile headphones so sophisticated they even came with their own valve amplifier that looked like something taken from a mad scientist's lab.

Only 300 pairs were made and today they fetch more than $30,000 on Ebay.

Devialet PHANTOM now on demo & in stock to take away

Looks like a single speaker - but is actually a self-contained proper Hi-Fi system.

Just put Phantom in any room and play music wirelessly from your smartphone or any other device. The sound quality is excellent - far cleaner, richer and more powerful than should be possible with such a small unit. The sound really is on a par with far more expensive Hi-Fi.

The new PHANTOM Implosive Sound Center. The revolutionary all-in-one music player.

As the No1 Devialet dealer in the UK, do come and hear PHANTOM. The two models start at £1390 and are a revolution in discreet, flexible, high quality music replay for the home.

That power has been achieved through some very clever engineering, the subject of 88 patents, to squeeze in two large bass drivers, as well as a mid-range cone and tweeter all packaged to deliver up to 3000 Watts of music. The spherical form means that it emits sound in all directions and really fills the room - with no distortion or vibration even at huge volume.

Phantom can replace all existing systems. Hi-Fi, docks, speakers, home cinema. Multi-room. Wireless.

Phantom is unique. An ultra dense sound with physical impact.

OXFORD AUDIO are one of the longest serving & largest Devialet dealers in the World and now in our 5th year of supplying Devialet. It pays to deal with the most experienced - that way you get the best results from your investment in such a technological, software driven, 'tour de force'.
