!!! Headfonia turns 10 – Time to celebrate !!! The $50,000 USD gear giveaway!


Yes, you read that right: A $50,000 USD gear giveaway! All for you!

Is Headfonia going crazy?

What do you mean, “going”? We’ve been crazy for quite a while already! But ok, let me explain what the heck is going on here.

Simply put: It’s our birthday (soon) and we want to let everyone in on the fun by giving you guys, well some of you anyway, free gear. Still not following? Alright then, keep reading.


As some of you might know, Headfonia.com was launched in Indonesia back in 2009 by a certain Michael Ting and he posted his first message on this site on September 14. That means we’ll be turning 10 in exactly 1 year and 1 day from today.

Ten years of articles and reviews will make us one of the oldest and biggest personal audio websites on the internet and in order to celebrate this milestone, we just had to do something special, something really big.

A Giveaway?

Yeah, what’s special about that?

True, we and many others have done giveaways before but I’ve been promising for weeks this would be big, and so big it is.

For the next 52 weeks – yes, fifty-two – we will be giving away free gear to one or more readers, each Wednesday. At the end of those twelve months we’ll end the giveaway with something huge. You can also expect special giveaways for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, Valentine’s and Easter. A special giveaway basically means you’ll be able to win more than one unit at once, like a DAP and IEM or a high end CIEM and matching cable, etc etc etc.

At the end of this crazy year we will have given away gear with a total value of over $50,000 USD, that’s F-I-F-T-Y-T-H-O-U-S-A-N-D for those who’ve been asking. Something that has never been done before, right? Is that big enough for you? 😉

Who? What?

Of course we couldn’t do this without the backup of our partners and we value their support and generosity highly. Over the next twelve months you can expect giveaways sponsored by the following companies:

You can find a complete overview of the 10 Year Giveaway on the dedicated page right here: https://www.headfonia.com/headfonia-celebration-giveaway/

On this page you can find all companies in alphabetical order who are taking part in the event, the prize info, the winners, etc.

The catch?

Well, there isn’t any really. Each week we’ll be doing a giveaway in which almost anyone can enter. A lucky draw will decide who the weekly winner will be.

The only catch maybe is that we won’t be telling you right away what we will be giving out at what date, so you’ll just have to check in each week and find out for yourself…


The first giveaway will start next week on Wednesday and that’s also when you’ll find out all the details about the giveaway in general and what the first prize will be.

And basically that’s it. We hope you’ll have fun with the giveaways and we wish you the best of luck. Feel free to leave a comment below and don’t forget to visit our partner’s websites ;-).

Oh, and share the word!

    Have been reading Headfonia reviews ever since I was wanting to acquire a pair of ‘serious’ headphones, and now have ended up with an HD650, an HE-560 and a Meze 99-Neo, and now looking to buy the Focal Elear…………keep up the good work.
