The post a lot of you have been waiting for…time to announce the winner of the 2011 Burson & Headfonia Picture Contest!
First of all let me thank everyone for making such great pictures, it was a lot of work getting everything checked and sorted out but we really enjoyed doing it. A big thanks of course to Burson Audio who made it all possible! In total we had about 40 Headfonia.com readers competing for the Burson HA-160 DS and they sent us almost 100 pictures, all of which you can check out again on our Facebook page. We had the pleasure to spot some really nice and rare vintage headphones which we already mentioned on the Facebook page.
We explained in the official contest topic we were looking for 3 things (each getting maximum 10 points): A classy girl, a nice headphone and a great setting. Tweeting about the contest gave you extra points (2) Apparently reading the contest submission guidelines wasn’t easy for everyone, probably because of their enthusiasm, but I think we were clear enough about the 3 above mentioned categories.
As announced before we will only communicate the top 3 entries, no final scores. Please don’t be too disappointed about it but giving all the points for each entry just isn’t possible. (I can assure you we rated each picture and category separately).
Have I built up the tension enough by now? After a few hours of spreadsheet work, discussions and giving points we came to this conlusion. Roll the drums….
1st Place – Gold: Szymon Zasada ~ Pioneer SE A1000
Congratulations Szymon!! We will pass your contact data to Burson who will be sending you their latest HA-160-DS. You earned it! Don’t forget to write us about what you think of it 😉
So that was it for this year’s contest. Again, thank you everyone for joining! If you are interested to know more about the HA-160DS, here is our review on the amplifier, and here is Burson’s product page on the HA-160DS. We hope to do another big contest at the end of next year, so stay tuned… We have several new reviews coming up in the next few weeks, I’m not going to say too much about it but we do tend to give some tips on Facebook from time to time.
Lieven & Mike
