I've heard a number of the previous versions of this headphone, and I've heard a number of modified versions of this headphones, but I would have never expected a Fostex refresh on this very old driver design to sound this good. Wow!

The Ether C I heard at the show sounded quite good—probably the best sounding sealed planar magnetic headphone I've heard to date.

1964 Ears is changing their name in response to what they see as a dramatic improvement to their IEMs with the inclusion of an ADEL hearing safety device.

I'm somewhat skeptical of the terminology in the marketing materials, but my intuition tells me there's something to it

I think the first cables I ever sold were Kimber PBJ 25 years ago. Now, under the brand name Axios, Kimber is braiding up some sexy cables.
