My personal opinion

Well…I love this concept. Definitely! If you have the right equipment, you can do the party whenever and in whatever place. When the headphones are in a good quality, the music and the loudness is quality as well. Yes, it is little weird when you put down the headphones from head and you see people dancing and everywhere is quite, but you can talk with your friends or someone else.

But you must know, that the people comes to enjoy the music, no for raving on 140dB of super loud 20kW sound system, when there the base drop, you have some problems with standing on your feet.

But another thing is, something still missing there. Maybe it is pressure from big speakers which you can feel. Headphones are still headphones. But definitely this is really great experience for sure!
