Germany's Lake People refreshes their entire lineup of G-series headphone amps, with a focus shifted towards home users rather than just studios. I check out the lowest and the highest cost models in the series to see how they compare.
It wasn't until I told Ivy Burford (now CEO of HeadRoom and after working together for a dozen years or more is someone who knows me very well) about my upcoming Red Oxx luggage review that I got the straight scoop what my motives might be.
"I've always thought you had a bit of a bag fetish," she said.
July is upon us. Time to break out the IEMs and portable gear, and go for a motorcycle ride in the mountains. Not quite yet, though, lots of stuff to do this month, and lots of measurements to report from the last couple of months.
Goodness gracious! I'm just blown away by the new B&W P3. It's absolutely gorgeous, ergonomics are stellar, and build quality unparalleled. It's really quite an accomplishment to make a headphone this small this beautiful.

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?
Occupying the middle spot in the aimotiv lineup from Emotiva's Pro division, the airmotiv 5 is one of the larger speakers you'll see featured on this site. While it may strain the limits of what could be considered "desktop friendly", it also aims to push the envelope in terms of price to performance ratio.
Once you've read all the threads and reviews, and had a look at the measurements on InnerFidelity, the next step in finding just the right headphone is to do some listening. There's really no better way to do that than by going to a local Head-Fi meet. And the New York Head-Fi group sure knows how to throw a great meet.
