I'm totally stoked this project has come to pass. Source Interlink Media will be producing a special interest publication this fall called "The Ultimate Headphone Guide." To be a part of what I think might be the first paper publication dedicated entirely to headphones is quite exciting. To have the opportunity to let InnerFidelity readers provide some input makes it doubly so.

With the recent spate of noise cancelers appearing from all corners, I thought I'd bring them together for a little workout in the lab. The Bose Quiet Comfort 15 has long been my favorite, but newcomers like PSB, Polk, and Klipsch are launching frontal attacks, so I think it's time for a re-evaluation.

Going in, I figured it would be hard to beat Bose. What's your guess?

Between forums, emails, Facebook, Twitter, and the InnerFidelity YouTube channel, I get asked, "What headphones should I buy?" at least 50 times a day. I can't possibly answer all the questions or I'd never get my job done. So, I present you with the InnerFidelity "Wall of Fame."

Want to know what headphones I think are best? You'll find them here.

Seems like every other day a new celebrity headphone comes out. And they're not cheap! Three hundred dollars used to buy you near-world class headphones. How come there's so much bling in headphones these days? How come they're so expensive? How the heck did we get here?

And more importantly, do these headphones sound any good?

Editors Note - I had a good laugh reading well known headphone enthusiast ClieOS' (Tai Ming Sow) article as some of his recommendations are very familiar to me and have already been reviewed favorably at InnerFidelity, and some I had never even heard of the company before. The number and variety of IEMs Tai has heard is spectacular.

I should mention Tai lives in Malaysia, and a couple of the headphones he recommends are not available in the U.S. Thanks for the recommendations Tai.

Wander through InnerFidelity and you'll stumble upon a lot of good headphones. But I thought I'd save you some time, and pick a couple hands full of some of the best ways to fill the head of someone you love, with music.

We'll start with the least expensive and work our way up.

Whenever I can, I spend time on the back of this beast: a 2005 Yamaha FJR 1300 super sport touring bike. This baby eats continents. I once left Bozeman, Montana in the morning and slept in a cornfield in Iowa that night. I really dig long-distance travel --- the gradual and ever-changing scenery, weather, and geology punctuated with little towns and churches is mesmerizing. Nonetheless, I need my tunes to complete the experience, and it took me a good long while to find just the right headphones to accompany me on my journeys.
