As an engineer I have a great deal of respect for any thing (product, device, tool, whatever) that's able to serve multiple functions and more importantly do them all well. I understand the need for laser-focused, niche products (and own a few) but there is something very valuable about a device that can serve multiple masters without disappointing any of them. And so it was with no small amount anticipation that I unboxed the final pre-production prototype of Headamp's ( latest portable offering, the Pico Power.

Brad Dahlke of Rochester, Minnesota was very surprised by the differences in sound quality when he plugged in his brand new AudioQuest DragonFly. Brad won the DragonFly as part of a sweepstakes here on! Brad shared his headphone history and revelations with the DragonFly with me via email.

Editor's Note: I used to tweet interesting news items, but I don't think it did justice to some stories. So, I'm going to keep surfing the news for headphones stories and make comments as I see the need, and when I build up a little chunk of interesting news stories post them here. I expect you'll see something about every two weeks or so. Here's the first.

AktiMate may not be a high profile maker of desktop speakers, but as soon as I heard a pair of their Micros at the recent Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver I fell in love with their sound. That rarely happens at shows, I find it hard to get a fix on a hi-fi's sound in cramped hotel rooms, but the lipstick red Micros spoke to me, I had to get them in for review.

A portable headphone amp is a pretty simple thing...or so you'd think. Take a look at the CEntrance HiFi-M8 and you'll be rethinking portable headphone amps.

When I first saw the Harman/Kardon NC, BT, and CL I thought they looked cool, but I didn't try too hard to get some shipped to me. Big mistake, methinks.

Sennheiser is always a highlight of CES for me. Usually because of new products, but this year it was because I got to spend a little time with someone I hold in very high regard.

Missed this amp at RMAF and was bound and determined to catch up at CES. Some neat features there worth exploring.
