My goal in life is to become one with headphones.
I don’t know what that means–yet, but all I know is that I really, really love headphones.
For instance, my owned gear includes the:
Audio Technica ATH-M50X
Audio Technica A500
Audio Technica A900X
Audio Technica ESW9
Audio Technica EW9
Beyerdynamic DT880 250ohms
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro
Paradigm Studio 20
CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER X-FI HD SB1240 USB 2.0 External Sound Card
Headstage Arrow 6NX
I created this site in hopes of being able to give readers more than just an overview of products. Many sites provide really compelling overviews, and many sites provide great reviews, but as professionals, these very sites lack that what consumers want most–the human perspective.
Rather than throwing out technical information about the products, I will strive to give you solely my impressions, including:
- how they feel
- how they sound and how they sound versus their competition
- their value
I have owned over 200 pairs of headphones ranging from $3 to $1000. I’ve acquired various headphone amps, and numerous mp3 players and devices in my time. I have also owned small dinky speakers to fairly expensive-for-my-age Paradigm Studio 20 speakers.
I live in Japan and have had the opportunity to go to some amazing headphone stores, headphone meetups, and headphone festivals.
This is my blog. Welcome.
