Customization seems to be the watchword of the moment in the world of headphones. Custom IEMs have been around for a while now; V-Moda will put custom art on your cans; and Beyerdynamic with their Manufaktur line have been doing it for a while as well. Now Beyer adds the ability to customize the bass profile of the new Custom One Pro headphones.

You knew it would happen sooner or later, Sennheiser is now in the business of building headphone amps!

Your thoughts in the comments of on the future of headphones were great, and opened my mind to new ideas. The panel conversation, however, went in another very interesting direction.

I'm in Riverton, WY having just motorcycled half way to Denver from Bozeman, and I've got a puzzling question that's been rattling around inside my helmet today. Jude asked me to participate in a panel discussion Sunday, the topic: "What is the future of headphones?"

I've got some thoughts, but I'd love for you to pitch in as well.

MEElectronics and Fischer Audio are two relatively young audio brands from opposite corners of the globe. Headquartered in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Fischer Audio has been in the headphone business since 2006 but wasn't known to audio enthusiasts in the US until this 2009 Head-Fi review. MEElectronics caught the community's attention a bit earlier with their value-priced but surprisingly decent-sounding earphones and headsets. Chances are neither brand is familiar to the average consumer but SoCal-based MEElectronics differs from Fischer on one key point---availability.

In what seems like a relatively short time, Burson Audio has developed a reputation for making good products, and they seem to have a pretty devoted and happy customer base. These are enviable things. I had read lots of good things about Burson's products, but never had the chance to hear one, until being sent this review loaner from Burson.

Holy moly, it's October already. Some interesting stuff from the lab this month, and a little preview of some things to come!

Logitech has recently stepped up it's game in the world of personal audio with an entirely new line of Logitech UE branded products. There's plenty of muscle there to do the job well, the question is: Can a mouse company apply it with the finesse needed to really produce well balanced audio products?

Fortunately, Ultimate Ears is in the mix, and it seems to me the mouse has some pretty good ears now.

The Logitech Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors are truly bespoke audio, hand crafted just for you. They'll fit your ears only, the sound is your sound, with a tonal balance tweaked by you, for you. Accuracy isn't part of the PRMs raison d'etre, not in the slightest, it's pure audio self-indulgence. That level of customization doesn't come cheap, the PRM is $1,999!

Meizu, former maker of DAPs (Digital Audio Players---back when that was a word people used for non-iProducts), attempts to reinvent themselves as a contender in the smartphone world. Their latest is called the MX 4-core, and it aims to beat Samsung's new Galaxy S III at its own game. With competitive specs, unique features, and a few surprises up their sleeves, Meizu just may pull it off... least as far as audiophiles are concerned.
