In the tenth century the fithele (precursor to the violin) had round holes. By the eighteenth century violins had F-holes that effectively doubled air resonance power. The question is: How did they figure that out over time?

The answer may be: they didn't.

InnerFidelity reader scharfsj wrote in a comment in my recent "A New Push for Headphone Measurements" article:

All well and good, but, I'm really not particularly interested in measurements, and really don't know why there is such a preoccupation with this opposed to creating more interesting content. What I am interested is what they sound like.

It's a really good question and I thought I'd answer it.

Here's a news item I simply can't resist posting up. No, it's not about high-end audio, it's actually about a potentially much lower cost alternative to cochlear implants.

Yes sir, dealers are starting to "get" the headphone thing, and Stereo Exchange is certainly on the bandwagon. Click through for the press release and a shockingly good line-up of gear.

I wish I could go. :(

The headphone news feeds were chock full of reports on the World Health Organization that has just recommended we limit use of personal audio devices to one hour per day. ONE HOUR PER DAY! Man, that's a hard number to choke down. How do you get your teenager to do that?

I've got some thoughts.

I've got time to measure more headphones than I can get in from manufacturers, let's attack the wish list and get these headphones measured.

First batch of post CES headphones are measured...I think "okay" headphones are becoming more common, but great ones are as rare as ever.

Dear Readers, I was sent the following announcement to post in hopes that having more eyes out there and aware of the situation might speed the recovery of a lot of stolen Audeze headphones.

Saw these at CES with their official "Hi-Res Audio" sticker. My mind's first thought? "Yeah right, like "Digital Ready" meant anything either."

Turns out the label is pretty darned accurate.
