Bill Leebens, of PS Audio, had been bugging me to visit Warwick during the show. Unfortunately, their precise location wouldn't be known until the show actually started. I kind forgot about it, and then I bumped into Bill in a Venetian hallway.

"Oh! Tyll! You gotta hear this. Come with me."

Boy, am I glad I did.

Full disclosure: I current have four t-shirts and three beer coozies I've gotten for free at the Manley Labs room at shows over the years. Also, I think EveAnna rocks.

At over a decade in the making, it was great to finally see HiFiMAN's new electrostatic headphones.

I thought long and hard trying to predict what Sennheiser might do this year. This wasn't on my list.

While on a special visit to Audeze about a year ago to do some research for this article, I got the chance to listen to some prototypes of the Sine headphones.

With tips for sport, comfort, and isolation, in four different sizes, Comply had a problem: How to make point-of-purchase earphone tip displays simpler for both stockists and consumers? Answer: Make a one-size-fits-all earphone tips and just display a few options.

Done with the mayhem over at the Las Vegas Convention Center. I've got a feeling there's going to be a lot more headphone action in the high-end displays at the Venetian this year, and I don't want to miss any of it.

Kind of a short report today. The Sands Convention Center was where the fitness stuff was, and a few other odds and ends.

Gonna do something a bit different this year. Daily reports from the show mainly to provide the vibe. In-depth reports when I get home.

Beats and Bose own the lion's share of the premium (+$100) U.S. headphone market. Care to guess who's third?

I've always really liked the Klipsch X10 IEM, and then the X11i that followed. I'm happy to report it essentially remains in the new line-up as the X12i. I'm looking forward to some measurements and listening to the rest of the line.

As I was checking out the House of Marley headphones, I stumbled onto their new low-cost Rebel Bluetooth ($69) and passive ($39) headphones. But...but...I thought House of Marley didn't do plastics due to their eco-conscious stance. And then I heard the rest of the story...
