Inside Sony Audio in Hongdae With Real Girls Project Members
For all serious music listeners and audio tech junkies, high-quality sound is of the utmost importance. Here’s an inside look at the Sony Audio store in Hongdae.
The audio devices that are used to listen to music are extremely diverse these days. The reason is because the type and genre of music people listen to are diverse and audio devices have been developed differently to suit the needs of different types of music listeners. That is also the reason why it is important to test out a pair of earphones before making a purchase if you want the best audio quality for the type of music you generally listen to.
So what makes the Sony Audio store in Hongdae worth visiting? Well for starters, the vibe of the store is extremely chilled out and allows visitors to test out a wide range of audio devices. The store is also home to four adorable puppies that belong to the manager of the store. It also has in stock products from the popular Sony 1000 X and h.ear series. The store additionally has the XB series along with various different Bluetooth enabled devices.
JiWon and JiSeul from Real Girls Project made a surprise appearance at the store. It was their first time ever to visit an audio shop and they were clearly fascinated by the features of Sony Audio’s products from the looks of their cute expressions below.
The girls were trying out Sony’s Noise Cancelling Headset 1000 X series which comes in three different variations.
Q: You said it was your first time visiting an audio store, what was your first impression when you came here?
JiSeul: Well, I always felt that audio stores were places where people with lots of technical knowledge visited. So I initially felt like I would be a little hesitant and shy when visiting the store. But since Hongdae is a place where young people gather and where the vibe is really open and chilled out, it was rather good.
Q: What do you think about the 1000 X series?
JiWon: I think that these pair of headsets would be really good to have on while practicing choreography. Up until now, I listened to music while practicing my dance moves through my phone and it was really problematic since my arms would get caught in the earphone wire sticking out of my pocket, sending my phone flying out. But these 1000 X series are wireless so I think I wouldn’t have any problems like that if I use it. Oh ,and the noise cancellation feature is awesome too.
Q: Which of the three products from the 1000 X series did you like the most?
JiSeul: I liked the WF-1000 X since it was completely wireless and the way it fit on my ears was nice. It’s also very compact and portable.
JiWon: I liked the WH-1000 XM2 because the feature where you touch the headset to disable the noise cancellation is so cool!
