CES 2015 was a, a lot, weird for me this year. I've got one hell of a story to tell you when the time comes.

Welcome to the start of a wild ride.

As I begin to get my exhibitor list and maps set up for CES and first glimpses of what the coming year will bring, I thought it might be educational to look back at this last year. Been quite a trip.

An Apple patent application for iDevices to perform spacial measurements with a laser shows capabilities to measure rooms.

With such a device, might we improve the virtual sound experience on headphones?

Something has to go really right, really soon, or Koss may go the way of Blockbuster, Kodak, or Sears. Change, get relevant, or die. At this point I think Koss really needs to focus on what they have always done well: Make good performing, low-cost headphones.

The good news is that with the new SP330, they've done just that.

This is a question I find myself pondering weekly, if not daily. I thought it would be a good idea to lay out my thought process on the subject for InnerFidelity readers and open it for discussion. Sometimes it's a tough decision and I think InnerFidelity readers should have some input. I'm willing to listen.
