About Me

I like headphones. Perhaps too much. 

15 years ago I discovered Head-fi and my wallet has been empty since.

My owned gear includes the:

Apple Airpods
Audio Technica ATH-M50X
Audio Technica A500
Audio Technica A900X
Audio Technica ESW9

And more.

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 these very sites lack that what consumers want most--the human perspective.

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.
