Akihabara is known for its unique anime culture and electrical appliances. However, there is so much more you can find here.
People from around the world come here looking for different audio equipment, such as audio players, recorders, speakers.
Yodobashi Akiba is huge!
You can find a lot of useful goods on the fourth floor reserved only for audio equipment. The products are sorted by brand name with each brand having a separate booth.
Therefore, you can easily find what you need and check out similar products.
We found high-quality Dynaudio, Monitor Audio and Marantz speakers.
On every booth, there is a large number of speakers lined up. You can even test them out.
Of course, they have popular Japanese brands, too, like Yamaha, Bose, and Pioneer.
Besides speakers, there is a wide collection of audio players and headphones, too.
We saw booths equipped with headphones where you can seat on a chair and take your time trying them out.
There were many other brands and shelves beside the ones shown in pictures. Feel free to look around and check out smaller brands, too. Also, we noticed some great deals in the bargain corner so don’t forget to check it out.
Yodobashi Akiba is our number one recommendation for anyone looking for audio equipment.
