Thanks for starting this thread! Last minute update is we're adding 4 Sennheiser headphones.

Also for Bowlers & WIlkiins we're upgrading from the P15 and Pi7 to the new successor ear buds, Pi5 S2, and the Pi7 S2.

Look forward to the discussion and your joining us for our Headphone Shootout Evaluation event!
