Boy, do I love it when a manufacturer builds a great product and then sticks with it. I've been listening to, and recommending the Denon AH-D2000, AH-D5000, and AH-D7000 headphones for years. I welcomed the chance to get some fresh samples of these fine cans from Denon, and I was double happy to find they've gotten even better over the years.

Even better? Yes! It does appear they've made some improvements over time. Let's have a look...

I've seen numerous comments about tip selection affecting the frequency response of in-ear monitors. I've seen lavish words of praise for Comply tips ... and rants about how they muffled the sound.

I figured we should get to the bottom of this, eh?

Having printed out the measurements for all 41 Do-It-Yourself modified headphones sent to me over the past year, I spread them out over my kitchen table and set to work picking the best and worst measuring of the bunch. I also picked what I thought were the coolest looking headphones. And I scrounged around my lab looking for all the headphones I might give away as prizes.

Let's see who got what ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...
