Nine days of motorcycle riding in the back country of Montana is superb...but there are NO wall outlets along the way to keep gadgets for music and phone calls charged. This is the story of a little kit of gear I put together for solar recharging and playing music off the grid.

Some products were great, but one made me crazy with frustration.

NuForce is on a roll with new releases—pick a category and they likely have at least one new product on offer, or maybe several. All of it seems very desktop friendly, so I figured I should give several of them a go.

If Mary Shelley had written a birthday scene in "The Bride of Frankenstein", the Abyss AB-1266 would certainly have been the perfect gift for old Frankie. Yeah, these are some weird looking cans, and the price tag sure makes you look at them real hard.

Fortunately, it's what they sound like that counts.

Take it from the guy that put the first cross-feed circuit to fix headphone imaging in a box that a consumer could buy, making headphones sound like speakers is hard...really, really hard.

But Headphone:X by DTS seems to be putting a pretty good dent in the problem.

Q: Who the heck is Tiesto, and why does he want an adjustable bass control?

Earlier this summer, Tyll let you know about the Ultimate Headphone Guide to be released on newsstands this November. This week I sent out the requests for information to manufacturers. If you are a manufacturer of headphones and headphone amps and have not yet received a request for information, please email me at ariel.bitran(at)sorc(dot)com so I can set up an account for you. If there's headphone brand you don't want me to miss, please comment so we can make sure to ask for their information.

It would be very surprising if China, the world's largest exporter of headphones and earphones, did not cultivate several audio brands of its own. Indeed, there are quite a few, some specializing in assembling ready-made components into generic $5 earbuds and others offering remarkably faithful Beats by Dre knockoffs. On the opposite end of the spectrum, however, are companies producing some of the best-value audio products on the market.

VSonic is one such outfit.

It's July! Time for motorcycles, firecrackers, and a bunch of headphone and amp measurements!
