InnerFidelity's First Birthday!

One year!? Already!? I can hardly believe it. I figure it's a good time to take a moment and look how InnerFidelity is doing.

Let's do the numbers ...

Between forums, emails, Facebook, Twitter, and the InnerFidelity YouTube channel, I get asked, "What headphones should I buy?" at least 50 times a day. I can't possibly answer all the questions or I'd never get my job done. So, I present you with the InnerFidelity "Wall of Fame."

Want to know what headphones I think are best? You'll find them here.

Head-Fi member Macedionian Hero may be a headphone geek by night, but he's the Director of Engineering at a MIL/AERO electronics manufacturing firm by day. He's also a "Lean Six Sigma Black Belt" (don't know what he had to do to get that, but I bet there's a lot of math), and one of his specialities is characterizing the the precision and accuracy of electronic systems. He volunteered to evaluate the precision of my headphone frequency response measurements.

Did some nail biting over this one, I tell ya.

Steve Guttenberg's search for great desktop near-field listening speakers find him listening to the ADAM ARTist 3 speakers with Heil-like X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeters.

Oh boy! I loves me some nice desktop speakers.

Kojaku - aka Sean S Posted: Mar 20, 2012 50 comments

A couple of weeks ago Head-Fi DIYer Kojaku sent in a pair of heavily modded Grado SR225i headphones. I'm not really a fan of Grados ... okay, I really dislike them, but these modded cans were very good. The best sounding Grados I've had the pleasure of hearing.

I asked him to tell his story ...

There's a place on the web like a bar on a back street, dimly lit and cozy, where the hard-core headphone geeks hang out. There, where it really counts, this amp is getting a lot of praise. Doug (this amp's maker), Nate (who wrote this article), myself, and a number of others are regulars there, and talk of serious stuff, like bourbon and bacon ... and amps like this.

Consider yourself very fortunate that Nate's words in a review like this get to see the light of day. Very. Good. Stuff.

Tap your cheek bones, and you'll hear it plain as day. The sound's not coming through your ear canals ... it's just rattling the bones in your ear, and you can hear it. But is this a good way to get your tunes?

Let's find out ...

Full-sized, sealed headphones are a bugaboo. They're either too woolly or boomy sounding, or they're too uneven, or they don't seal well enough. Sealed headphones are just plain hard to make sound good. Darn few that jump through those hoops and work well enough to be worth the money.

Wanna watch the K550 make the leap?

The company tagline is: "Engineered Sound Meets Beautiful Design". One glance at the picture above and you might agree on their second point. The question then becomes: is their beauty merely skin deep?

The latest in a long, long line of HD 25 variants, Sennheiser puts new clothes on the Amperior with milled aluminum cups and a new cable. Is it just bluff and bluster, or are these new cans worth nearly double the price of the HD 25-1 II?

I'm thinking so.
