I've witnessed this at least a half dozen times now, and it never ceases to be inspiring. A hobbyist with a passion decides to go professional...and succeeds!

Dan Clark is one such story.

First day of the show is orientation for me. A real good peruse of the headphone gear to figure out what I'm gonna cover, and catching up with old friends.

And pictures...lots of pictures to give you the flavor of T.H.E. Show Newport!

Philips' latest budget in-ear releases, the TX1 and TX2, do not bear the Fidelio badge but still indicate a trickling down of know-how from the higher-end Fidelio products.

I knew this would be coming one day. Certain someones don't think I'm getting enough electrostatic headphones measured. It was bound to come to a least it wasn't a horse's head in my bed. The Stax Mafia delivered the needed tool to measure any electrostatic headphone known to man.

And now I gotta deliver the payola. I think I'm gonna need some help.

Okay, okay, perfect is a bit strong, I've got a few little niggles with sound quality. But damn, you're getting a heck of a lot for $212 with these terrific headphones.

I think this is my favorite show. So many headphone enthusiasts in L.A., and with Mike Mercer's enthusiastic cheerleading the Headphonium will be bigger and better than ever!

What's a Headphonium? Sure, I'll tell you...

Wow! This unexpected event was at first a shock....and then it began to make all sorts of sense: Apple, it seems to me, is going to fast-track "Hearables".

Let me explain...

It's no secret I really like the Audeze LCD-3 and LCD-2. When they slotted the LCD-X between the two, I simply had to have a listen to these cans in context with the rest of the line. So I spent some time with the latest Audeze headphones...

...Yeah, rough job, someone's got to do it. :)

The trend is apparent: Very smart headphones are in our future. Bluetooth and noise canceling is old news; headphones with stand-alone streaming services, biometric sensors for exercise data-logging, and head tracking for navigation and surround simulation all are on the horizon.

Where will this take us? Will increasing complication lead to incompatibilities? Will traditional headphones, like turntables and tape decks, leave the mainstream and become audiophile oddities?

I'd sure like to know.
