Adding to all the ballyhoo around iPhone7's missing headphone jack is Nick Hunn's "Airpods – a Speculative Teardown" blog post. Boy, a sharp mind is a beautiful thing to behold.

Once you've read all the threads and reviews, and had a look at the measurements on InnerFidelity, the next step in finding just the right headphone is to do some listening.

Here's a taste of what awaits you ...

'Tis the season, time for the InnerFidelity writers to hook you up with some cool gift ideas. We accept that many will just be looking for goodies for themselves...sorry about your wallet.

I've raised teenagers. It's not an easy time. First jobs; getting a driver's license; romance; challenging schoolwork--a heady mix indeed.

I spent all day yesterday measuring the two different pads with four filters each of the Torque t402v headphone.

Some things just don't go as expected.

I've got time to measure more headphones than I can get in from manufacturers, let's attack the wish list and get these headphones measured.

Yeah, I know right, I never do this sort of thing.

Actually I just wanted to draw your attention to a couple of very interesting articles, but the Pono came today so I thought I'd just take a couple of pictures.
