Headphone measurements of frequency response, square waves, and impulse response are actually multiple ways of displaying the same information.

Ed Note: I've long been enamored by the incredibly lifelike recordings produced by brothers David and Norman on their Chesky record label. They regularly put great musicians in great spaces, and deftly record the moment with minimal mikes and astonishing results.

I knew they'd get ahead ... Steve Guttenberg now tells us exactly what kind of head they got.

The Little Monster himself, Keven Lee (son of Head Monster Noel Lee), jumped out on his own to start a new low-cost headphone company: SOL Republic. Their first headphone, the Tracks is a bit of a mixed bag, but quite interesting nonetheless.

Let's have a look and listen...

Steve Guttenberg dragged me into the objectivist/subjectivist debate...but not kicking and screaming. Because I like to measure headphones, and because I love the experience of listening, I hold that debate pretty regularly all by myself.

Editor's Note: I'm endlessly asked on the InnerFidelity YouTube channel what kind of speakers I have on my desktop. Wanting to give a full answer, I asked Steve Guttenberg to review these lovely Harbeth speakers.

Ah, the lowly boombox. Certainly, a device that sits squarely centered in the domain of personal audio. Promising so many things: radio; aux inputs; a clock maybe. Unfortunately, boomboxes rarely deliver more than the glorious resonant tones of plastic.

Tivoli tries to buck the tide with their iSongBook. Let's see if they succeed.
