Headphone Zone Experience Studio
A.R. Rahman’s music has enchanted millions all over the world. A clever blend between Indian music with a worldbeat, new age and light dance music, creating memorable yet soul-filled masterpieces. Be it the enchanting Zariya, or the soulful Naadan Parindey or the upbeat flute on Saathiya: ARR’s music was and is way ahead of time.
Well versed with multiple instruments, A.R. Rahman produced music with international acclaim. This listening session with Raghav Somani will walk you through the musical evolution of the Mozart of Madras.
Join Raghav Somani as we rediscover and learn more about the Mozart of Madras with a curated playlist spanning 3 decades.
Anyone who has their minds blown by the music of A.R. Rahman over the last 3 decades. Headphone Zone Experiences and our listening sessions are designed for anyone looking to discover new music, or rediscover music they’ve loved for years.
The events are best suited for people who are new in the world of audiophilia, or just starting out in the hobby. Ofcourse, seasoned audiophiles are welcome to join in as we listen to our favourite artists on some of the finest sounding gear in the world.
Raghav founded Headphone Zone in 2011, straight out of university, looking to create a change in the way Headphones were sold in India. Raghav is a passionate musician, and a Political Philosophy buff, self-proclaimed idli-sambar connoisseur, and a Guinness world record holder for his collection of Airline Baggage Tags. In equal parts an A.R. Rahman buff, and a Classic Rock geek, his playlists borrow from his childhood memories growing up in Chennai.
We're right in the most glamourous part of Mumbai full of studios and acting agencies. Yup, you guessed right, we're in Andheri West - the Bollywood of Mumbai.

We all have grown up listening to Rahman. But what makes this listening session special is the amount of information you learn from Raghav. Having grown up in Chennai, he has known Rahman like most in the north don’t. He also has a ton of inside stories from first hand sources that make this a joy. Spoiler: There is no way you can cover everything in the given 3 hours. Nonetheless this was a joy! Highly recommended!
I had a wonderful time getting to know more about one of the most influential music composers of India. It was a fascinating experience learning more about his musical journey spanning 3 decades, interspersed with listening to his tracks on some of the world's finest headphones.
So glad you loved the listening session. We hope to see you again real soon for more of these!
A unique concept of it's own kind, this experience truly made us rediscover Rahman and his songs like never before..
Raghav, being an amazing host, never let a dull moment seep in with his unique behind the scenes bytes. Each song assumed a different purpose as we viewed it through Rahman's musical journey..
High profile audio gear brought in rich details from the songs heard a hundred times before...
We would return back soon with another musical journey soon...
Thank you for the great review. We hope to see you again & so glad you enjoyed the listening session.
I think Headphone Zone has been the introduction to the audiophile world for a lot of us. And in this session, Raghav truly helps you understand what good sound means. It's quite technical but aimed at absolute novices like me and by the end of it I had the tools to listen to music and understand how good it sounded as separate from how good the music was. And of course you have the help of the finest audio equipment money can buy. This is a pure eargasm and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is even a little serious about audio. Take the red pill.
