New headphone shop gets into the right spirit

A new headphone store has opened in London’s West End, offering the perfect blend of premium audio and whisky.

Located between Regent Street and Savile Row, at 3 New Burlington Street, Mayfair, the Spiritland Headphone Bar claims to sell some of the best headphones and audio players in the world.

Stocking brands including Sennheiser, Audio-Technica and Audeze, the shop also offers high-resolution players from Astell & Kern and portable DACs and amps from Chord, as well as products by Naim, Bryston and Questyle. Prices are said to range from £150 to £4,000 and upwards.

The products can all be demonstrated, so customers can compare a wide range of devices. Visitors are also able to sample a selection of whiskies.

The store, which is the latest venture by the owners of the Spiritland café and bar, in London’s King’s Cross, is open every day except Mondays, from 11am to 7pm.
