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.

When I get stopped in my tracks I just need to say something.

The first step is always the hardest: the "Wall of Fame" page for headphone amps makes its debute.

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. There's really no better way to do that than by going to a local Head-Fi meet. And the New York Head-Fi group sure knows how to throw a great meet.

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.

As I begin to get my exhibitor list and maps set up for CES and first glimpses of what the coming year will bring, I thought it might be educational to look back at this last year. Been quite a trip.

I've raised teenagers. It's not an easy time. First jobs; getting a driver's license; romance; challenging schoolwork--a heady mix indeed. Teens try to exercise control of the world they find themselves in...but often aren't quite well enough positioned or equipped. The magic bullet, it seems to me, is finding an engaging project that teens can throw themselves into and call their own. One that can make a few bucks is a big bonus.

Here's one such success story...

Steve Guttenberg and I sat down for a little dialog with David Chesky. We talked about sound, music, and particular and sundry concrete abstractions ... or something like that.

Maybe New York was just messin' with my head? Doesn't matter, I had fun.

When I saw the video I thought, "No way!?"

And then I saw the second video...and realized it's here.

Just amazing!

Curiostity sometimes gets the better of me and I've got to take a good hard look at something. In this case, the Bakoon HPA-21 current source amplifier, and how it's different than a voltage amplifier.

Here's a little something to enjoy as you sip your Sunday morning coffee. Me on Steve's Enjoy the Music TV.

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.
