A joy for Amit Trivedi fans

This was an absolute joy to attend. The amount of trivia and getting to relive the songs I grew up listening to as a teenager was worth every second and rupee I spent. Highly recommended. Also you get to hear these on the very best audio equipment in the world. What more can a Amit Trivedi fan ask for?

Hey Ujjwal,
So glad you loved the listening session & our equipment. Swing by again sometime soon. Cheers!

A Brilliant experience

2 major reasons why I love these experiences.
1. Listening to great music followed by their amazing introduction and insider stories by Raghav. Like listening to a modern version of Anu Kapoor describe stories.

2. I get to listen to headphones I would like to buy as well as aspirational ones. This is like getting a test ride for a Bugatti Chiron.

Hey Varun,
Thank you for appreciating our efforts & we are glad that you had a fun time. Cheers!

A Phenomenal Experience to Enjoy Songs by Your Favorite Artists

This was the first time my wife & I attended these experience sessions and we walked out thoroughly impressed, having just had a surreal 3-hour experience listening to Amit Trivedi's songs. Sure, at face value, it sounds like you just sit down to listen to a bunch of songs on headphones, but to me, what puts this whole experience on a whole another level is Raghav's commentary before each song. His trivia & details really add a new dimension to each song, and then when you listen to these tracks on Headphone Zone's high-quality gear, you really get to know all the layers & depth the music has. You'll be surprised how many instruments you didn't even know existed in the song.

Overall, I highly recommend these experience sessions to everyone and I can't wait to attend the next one.

@Raghav & team: You should do one session dedicated for Coke Studio (both India and PK) songs.

Hey Preshit,
Great to know that you & your wife had a wonderful time, do swing by for more experiences or just to hang out in our studio.

Relive the Mozart of Madras like never before

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!

Hey Ujjwal,
Thank you for the great review, it's an absolute delight to know that you loved the session. Hope to see you soon!

Rediscovered how to listen to music

The whole experience of listening to A.R Rahman songs coupled with the trivia and minute details to listen to made this experience rediscover a new meaning to listening to music for me. The high sound quality headphones made the experience all the more joyful. The sharpness of the sound through the open back headphones made me rediscover music with a completely different perspective. Raghav's input before every song was instrumental in making me believe that i had never heard the songs with such concentration and feel every beat and every word and understand the lyrics. Even though certain songs were in a language I didn't know of, it still made me picture how the song would have been recorded. Waiting eagerly to attend another music session at Headphone zone.

We're glad that you had a great listening experience and thanks for the amazing review! Hope to see you soon!

Awesome Experience

The session was awesome in the sense that it combined effective storytelling with great music. Each of the curated pieces was adroitly captured through the context building and a continuous narrative kept the interest going. I relived the journey of Amit Trivedi through the eyes of Raghav and the ears of headphonezone.

We're glad that you had a great listening experience and thanks for the amazing review! Hope to see you soon!

Re discovering Amit Trivedi

I was always an Amit Trivedi fan. But listening to his songs on such high quality equipments during the listening session has made me, if I can say, a much bigger fan of Amit (probably an AC). I came out of that session with a new found understanding of the nuances of his music, how layered his compositions are and overall a newfound respect to the underrated genius that the guy is. A session which must be attended by anyone who has enjoyed any of his music in the last 10 years, I am sure it would be an enthralling experience. Thank you Headphone zone for this session.

We're glad that you had a great listening experience and thanks for the amazing review! Hope to see you soon!
