Inter BEE 2019: INTER BEE EXPERIENCE -15 Brands at X-Speaker and 7 Companies / 9 Companies at X-Headphone / X-Microphone


We have now determined the brands that will participate at INTER BEE EXPERIENCE. This is a special event of Inter BEE 2019 to be held in Makuhari Messe over three days from November 13 (Wed) to 15 (Fri).

INTER BEE EXPERIENCE is a global-scale professional audio trial listening event. It consists of two parts: a world-class SR speaker trial listening event called XSpeaker (SR Speaker Experience Demo) and a professional-use headphone and microphone trial listening experience exhibition called X-Headphone / X-Microphone. It attracts attention every year from many industry stakeholders (e.g., those in the audio industry and the live entertainment industry) as an event that makes it possible to try listening to and experiencing products by bringing together well-known business-use audio equipment from brands inside and outside Japan under one roof. It will be the sixth time the event has been held this year. This means it has become established as a customary large-scale event of Inter BEE.

The number of point source speakers participating at X-Speaker is being given as one of the points of interest at this year’s INTER BEE EXPERIENCE. One product participated at the event last year, but this has increased to four products this year. These are products for a relatively small acoustic space compared to line array speakers. Nevertheless, we would like you to look out for the demo of the point source speakers that have an increasing presence together with small line array speakers and medium/large line array speakers.

It is necessary to register in advance to attend Inter BEE to participate in this year’s INTER BEE EXPERIENCE. (It is now possible to register on our official website:
