Yesssssss!

I've kvetched quite a bit about the need for some killer headphones in the $500-$1000 price range. Seems like headphone makers just jumped by that price category in an ever more intense race to the top...of your willingness to break your wallet. Looks like we're going to get some relief from MrSpeakers.

Ooooooooo baby! If you don't have a Sennheiser HD 600 or HD 650, you need to read this!

Happy days, zero point one percenters, have I got a deal for you!

Just a few months ago Focal released it's flagship Utopia headphone ($4000), and man is it good. I called it the world's best headphone in my review. Not only does it sound good, but it's extremely well built using excellent materials, and it looks absolutely terrific. Well, now it's gotten even better with recent announcement of the bedazzling Focal Utopia by Tournaire (€100,000). Just look at it sparkle! (photo above)

I like to consider myself pretty good at guessing what might come along in the world of headphones, but I certainly didn't expect these!

What if Sennheiser engineers were allowed to make the best headphones they possibly could, regardless of cost?

Here's your answer.

I couldn't make it, but Mike (Anaxilus) did and has submitted this ShiitShow report...which, if I may say, is simply an outstanding offering.

Sure, I wear headphones to bed sometimes to watch movies on my iPad...and yes, there are ergonomic issues. I don't sleep with headphones on, or in (in the case of IEMs), but I know people who do. Some sort of trouble is always expressed.

Kokoon intends to change all that.

At first I thought "never going to work", but on reading it over I think it might have some good uses.

Man, you just never know what's going to show up in the headphone news feeds.

CES is a big show, there's no way to know everything that's happening there while you're there. I thought a good surf of the last two weeks of headphone news would show some additional fruit for review sample requests.

And, of course there's some newsy odds 'n ends.

I first heard of this project coming along about a year ago when I chatted with Skylar Gray (AudioQuest's chief designer on the project) at CES. I also got a personal guided tour of the NightHawk in it's most current iteration at the time a month ago at CanJam@RMAF. Astonishing then, and now, is how much innovation Skylar has managed to pack into this new headphone design. Much of it is mentioned on their NightHawk launch site, but I thought I'd take a few moments to relay my understanding of some of these design features. So, open another tab to their site and I'll talk you through what I know, and what I'd like to know more about, regarding this very interesting headphone.

Woot! Tidal opens today, let's bog its server down!

Just signed up and got my mitts on lossless streaming; checked out a few tracks I'm familiar with; damn...it's just like the CD!

Wow. Didn't see that coming. Grado tends to lay low in the headphone PR mill, but they've poked their head into the fray with the Bushmills x Grado headphone—their first ever closed-back headphone!
