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.

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.

I recently visited Dr. Sean Olive, Harman International's Director of Acoustic Research and president-elect of the Audio Engineering Society, for an in-depth rundown on their ground-breaking work on understanding the relationship between the subjective and objective performance of headphones.

Oh my, this is seriously good stuff.

A high-quality monitor speaker which is just as comfortable on the desktop as it is in the living room? Made to order in the USA by a highly respected, veteran speaker company? For a price that's not astronomical? Yes please!
