I spent all day yesterday measuring the two different pads with four filters each of the Torque t402v headphone.

Some things just don't go as expected.

When I get stopped in my tracks I just need to say something.

Curiostity sometimes gets the better of me and I've got to take a good hard look at something. In this case, the Bakoon HPA-21 current source amplifier, and how it's different than a voltage amplifier.

As I'm in the midst of producing what is essentially a large subjective review (an opinion piece on my experience with equipment), I wanted to offer up this video by Floyd Toole. He is a giant in the world of audio and I have the deepest respect for his work. In this video he explains the difference between opinion and science.

Personal audio was born with the Walkman introduction 36 years ago today. It was also a near death experience for an iconic American company.

Not long ago a reader asked me if I would experiment with how glasses effects headphone measurements. The dummy head doesn't have a nose...so I just taped them on. He won't mind.

It's a question I often ask myself. I do, and headphone enthusiasts and audiophiles do, but does the public in general...or even some reasonable fraction of the public care about sound quality?

I think the answer is: Yes. Here's one reason.

Going to be doing a big article this summer comparing the new HiFiMAN HE-1000 and Mr. Speakers Ether with a variety of other high-end headphones and using a handful of high-end amps. In preparation I did some more work today on the amplifier measurement routine.

Getting really serious about finding a way forward for an on-line headphone measurement tool. I think I need to run a few things by InnerFidelity readers.

So as not to incur the wrath of Google, InnerFidelity now passes the mobile-friendly requirements and will benefit from the better "ranking signal" on mobile search.
