    Count me in for both units please, Denver, CO. I'm very interested in the closed version, but tend to prefer open headphones as a rule.

    I really liked the idea of a closed back because I own none but the S sounds to good to pass up as well. Wanted to really purchase one for work as I hate IEMs.
    I'd love a chance to hear both before buying one, please include me !

    I'd love to hear both, please. NJ

    I hate to be a nuisance but I've just had surgery and will be off my feet for a month; getting to UPS will be tricky. If there's any chance I could go later on the loaner tour, say in October, I'd really appreciate it.

    I already own the closed, but would love to get in on the Mini S loaner if done separately. Baltimore, MD. Thanks!

    Awesome. Interested with both (but if logistic could be problematic, I'm fine with semi-closed only). Please count me in. Philly, PA.

    Hi folks,

    loaner tour list is finalized and should start this week. We decided to just do one tour that has both pairs of headphones for simplicity.

    Hi Tommy, sorry to be a nuisance. It looks like I got lost in the shuffle; would you mind adding me to the tour, please? I could go last. I'm in NJ, so not far from HotRatSalad and close to Ev, if you'd like the headphones returned to him. Thanks!

    @Tchoupitoulas @Merrick @jaker782 - I planned to work with you all separately from the SBAF roster since y'all are either fairly close to where I'm located or already own/have heard a bunch of different ETA stuff. I envisioned this tour as being more of an introduction to ETA for folks who haven't heard quite as much of our stuff otherwise or don't presently own an ETA headphone, so the roster is streamlined to be efficient and move quickly.

    Send me a DM here or on Discord and we can figure out how to set up some auditions off-roster. It will make things faster for everyone.

    BTW, both headphones are currently en-route to rhythmdevils. I know he's not on SBAF right now, but hopefully he can still organize a handoff to loadexfa to kick things off.
