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.

More headphones this month than there were days in the month. The tester is getting a workout!

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.

Here's some headphones of particular interest to me. If you have a pair that's in fairly good shape, I'd love to measure them.

  • Sennheiser HD 414
  • AKG K1000
  • Beyerdynamic DT801 and DT901
  • Original Koss Pro4AA, with liquid filled ear cushions.
  • Sony R10

"I've been having a blast reading through the first year (1923) of issues for "Gramophone," the great British classical music magazine. When I came across the attached article (from the issue for September 1923), I was struck by the fact that it could have been written this year .... and, if we substituted a more modern piece of equipment (such as "headphones") for the "gramophone," then the arguments would be just like those in our "equipment vs. music" discussions in audio publications and forums."

Wow! A great response from my post pushing for more measurements! Thanks!

41 headphone measurements done this month...I think that's a record.

You've seen me play with Photoshop a bit for my InnerFidelity Updates. I had no idea it could get you in this much trouble!

Ruh roh! It seems designers Dolce & Gabbana may have gotten a little too inspired by Colombian artist Adriana Duque.
