I think this is my favorite show. So many headphone enthusiasts in L.A., and with Mike Mercer's enthusiastic cheerleading the Headphonium will be bigger and better than ever!

What's a Headphonium? Sure, I'll tell you...

Wow! This unexpected event was at first a shock....and then it began to make all sorts of sense: Apple, it seems to me, is going to fast-track "Hearables".

Let me explain...

It's no secret I really like the Audeze LCD-3 and LCD-2. When they slotted the LCD-X between the two, I simply had to have a listen to these cans in context with the rest of the line. So I spent some time with the latest Audeze headphones...

...Yeah, rough job, someone's got to do it. :)

The trend is apparent: Very smart headphones are in our future. Bluetooth and noise canceling is old news; headphones with stand-alone streaming services, biometric sensors for exercise data-logging, and head tracking for navigation and surround simulation all are on the horizon.

Where will this take us? Will increasing complication lead to incompatibilities? Will traditional headphones, like turntables and tape decks, leave the mainstream and become audiophile oddities?

I'd sure like to know.

With a wife acceptance factor through the roof, and the ability to fill a room with an extraordinary sense of spacious ease, Apple-centric audiophiles will very likely find the Fidelio SoundSpheres tremendously appealing.

Like sand on a beach, the number of times the Audio Technica ATH-M50 has been recommended would be hard to count. This headphone has reached legendary status among headphone enthusiasts, and with this latest refresh its position in the pantheon of great headphones is assured.

Think the ATH M-50 is old news? Time to listen again!

A really affordable desktop self-powered spaeker from a world-renowned pro-audio firm?

Count me in!

I've never heard a Bluetooth, noise canceling, headphone/headset that sounds good---or even the same---in all modes...until now. This is a really cool, jack-of-all-trades, general purpose headphone/headset!

I spent the weekend listening through Chesky's new Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disc and a few of the albums released using the Binaural+ techniques and technologies. First observation: Man, did I get sucked into the music a lot!

Second observation? The first would have been enough all by itself, but the overarching impression of about 12 hours of listening in the past few days is that I had been in the presence of not just the music, but with the musicians as well. Very unusual, and very satisfying.
