There’s product updates and then there’s product updates. Chord Electronics recently unleashed a helluva a powerful firmware update for Poly, the company’s wireless dedicated streaming module which is the peanut butter to their Mojo portable DAC/headphone amplifier’s jelly.

AXPONA has, in a very short time, become the largest audio show in North America, and even despite terrible weather on the final Sunday, the show seems to be growing every year.

I stopped at the Mr. Speaker’s booth to say hi to the owner Dan Clark, who I respect immensely for his tireless efforts in pursuit of good sound. Dan has some awesome technical chops and I always learn something interesting when chatting with him, and he always has great sounding setups at his booth.

First up on Day 2 was the Focal Stellia. Focal always has a really cool and enormous booth, and they often bring some of the most top-notch electronics around to every show. They had their usual collection of cool amps, my favorite being the SPL Phonitor series, as well as the newish Stellia cans

This review has been a pretty long time in the making, I’ve actually owned the Audeze Mobius since the beginning; I’ll freely admit that I was one of the first kickstarter backers for it. I don’t recall if there is a headphone that has excited me quite as much in the last few years as the Mobius has, other than maybe the Ether 2.

I was thinking, what does audiophile even mean anymore? Especially in the headphone community. I mean, if you were ask the average person thinking of dropping $250 USD on a pair of the just announced Powerbeats Pro headphones, I’m pretty sure they’d say that those qualify as audiophile, but you’d probably have to explain what that even means…
