A big box of HiFiMAN

Audio Primate is going to be busy. I personally don't take unboxing videos very seriously. It's basically shouting "look at my new toy! Please look at me, I'm so desperate for attention." Some people are really into them though, so here you go. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iSlX0hbC6Y

On March 25 I hopped on a coach from Southampton to London with the Effect Audio Arthur IEMs in my ears and the Aune M1S pumping tunes through my cranium for the two hour coach ride.
