A Nice, Normal Dude Wins the V-Moda M-80 Headphones

Hey everyone. Meet Zach.

Zach “The Attacker” Packer is the happy winner of our recent V-Moda M-80 on-ear headphone sweepstakes. Packer, a New York City denizen, strode into the Stereophile offices at 261 Madison on a misty Manhattan afternoon confused by our corporate décor and cubicles. He commented, “You guys sure don’t have a lot of audio gear here.” All he could see were a few boxes of Quarkie’s animal-shaped in-ears. Sorry for the letdown Zach, but we keep our super-secret million-dollar listening room hidden from the public eye. Actually, I don’t even know where it is.

We’re always happy to see young and down-to-earth Stereophile readers like Packer. He mentioned all of his prior entry-level headphone gear, and it made Stephen and me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Congrats on your winnings Zach. Keep on listening.
