32 Ohm Audio Grand Opening

32 ohm 1While CNN and Fox News are both presenting their own version of the economic collapse, the Christmas shopping season is alive and well here in Portland, Oregon at the world’s first exclusive headphone boutique, 32 Ohm Audio. I know nothing warms my heart like seeing people out in force, buying audio gear!

Shop owner Ken Ball said the store had been packed all day and by the time I arrived on the scene at 8p.m. the party was still hopping. In addition to the helpful store staff they had drinks, munchies and had enlisted the help of local DJ Lady Adie who was spinning analog and digital tunes.

In addition to the festive atmosphere, thanks to their vendors, quite a few prizes were given away. Headphones from Monster and Ultrasone, along with a wireless iPod dock from Ultimate Audio had the fans jumping when I was there. One person in the crowd said, “These are some pretty impressive prizes, not like most places that give away drink holders!”

But in the end the winning formula is customer service and a wide product range. Ball said, “Buying headphones is such a personal thing, you really need to hear them before you purchase. We’ve got a wider selection than anyone and the atmosphere here is very chill. We want people to have fun when they come here.”

I think that says it all. When you are in Portland, stop down and see the crew at 32 Ohm Audio, you’ll be glad you did.
