    It's on there now, I bought mine direct from the website

    Well I'm now up and running . I think sonneteer are trying to get headphones to sound more like speakers with this gadget.thats not what I'm getting ,but it's changed my really nice headphones beyerdynamic dt990 pro,to something quite different. You know with headphones you get the sound in your head but you also hear it,bear with me now the music seems to bypass my lug oles and straight to my head and at the same time beyond my head reading that back it sounds stupid, but that's the only way I can describe it it's a bit like going from speakers with a narrow ish sweet spot to speakers that go wider and higher and fill the room

    I picked up my Headspace from Argos this afternoon and have been using it for a couple of hours now, and for me there's no doubt that the central claim that it 'makes your headphones sound like real loudspeakers [sic]' [made by Sonneteer on Pinkfish, December the 19th, 2018] has not been realized.

    I started off on my main HP rig with solo piano works by Schumann and found a modest change in ambience, though it sounded odd where the damper pedal was engaged or released by the pianist, as if the damper board was situated some way form the actual instrument. . I'll persevere with it, but so far I don't expect it to have a permanent place in my 'best' HP chain. With this kind of music I thought that the Headspace did do something, though that something is not always very noticeable, and conversely that that something may not always agreeable. Using, to me, posh 'phones with a posh HPA the effect was negligible, to middling, to occasionally undesirable

    I then plugged it into an I-Pod Touch and found the Headspace made a positive difference. Playing symphonic music, Mahler's Sy. No.6, the separation of instruments and the impression of the physical space occupied by the musicians seemed enhanced. While I couldn't say that I ever had the impression of listening to stand mounts or floor-standers rather than headphones, I think the device is worth hanging onto for portable use at least. I did notice the odd peculiar effect like a a single glockenspiel strike sounding detached from the sound-field, but overall I'd recommend the Headspace for use with portable devices, particularly given its very low price and small inconspicuous form.


    These, for what they are worth, were my initial impressions [so the usual caveats in place, my 56 y.o. cloth ears and all.]
