Since I wrote my "Headphones Can Kill You" article two months ago, I've seen in my news feeds at least three more people wearing headphones killed by trains. Unbelievable … but true. While I'm sure InnerFidelity readers are smart enough to stay off the tracks, there are plenty of other hazards out there --- I've almost been hit at the grocery store parking lot before. And don't you just hate it when the stewardess' lips move but you've got to pull the earphones out of your ear only to hear her ask if you want some lousy peanuts?

Well, now there's something you can do about it.

I couldn't make it, but Mike (Anaxilus) did and has submitted this ShiitShow report...which, if I may say, is simply an outstanding offering.

I first heard of this project coming along about a year ago when I chatted with Skylar Gray (AudioQuest's chief designer on the project) at CES. I also got a personal guided tour of the NightHawk in it's most current iteration at the time a month ago at CanJam@RMAF. Astonishing then, and now, is how much innovation Skylar has managed to pack into this new headphone design. Much of it is mentioned on their NightHawk launch site, but I thought I'd take a few moments to relay my understanding of some of these design features. So, open another tab to their site and I'll talk you through what I know, and what I'd like to know more about, regarding this very interesting headphone.

This drop will be going live tomorrow, and if you're in the market for a killer sealed headphone for mobile use don't miss it!

Sure, I wear headphones to bed sometimes to watch movies on my iPad...and yes, there are ergonomic issues. I don't sleep with headphones on, or in (in the case of IEMs), but I know people who do. Some sort of trouble is always expressed.

Kokoon intends to change all that.

Man, you just never know what's going to show up in the headphone news feeds.

Editors Note: I love living in Montana, but there are a few drawbacks. One big one for me at the moment is that all the PR junkets introducing new products usually happen thousands of miles away in New York. Bummer. Fortunately, a good friend and and long time headphone hobbyist Dinny FitzPatrick (known as "The Monkey" on Head-Fi) lives there, and has volunteered to lend a hand scouting out the new gear that shows up in the Big Apple. Last month he attended the release of a bunch of new gear from Logitech/UE. His report follows...and just like a monkey, it's quite entertaining.

But, again, like a Monkey, he's likely to be rather difficult to restrain, so I've given him a long leash, and we're likely to see a variety of writings from him. Welcome aboard Dinny! The banana budget is approved, write to your heart's content.

At first I thought "never going to work", but on reading it over I think it might have some good uses.

Happy days, zero point one percenters, have I got a deal for you!

Just a few months ago Focal released it's flagship Utopia headphone ($4000), and man is it good. I called it the world's best headphone in my review. Not only does it sound good, but it's extremely well built using excellent materials, and it looks absolutely terrific. Well, now it's gotten even better with recent announcement of the bedazzling Focal Utopia by Tournaire (€100,000). Just look at it sparkle! (photo above)

Yesssssss!

I've kvetched quite a bit about the need for some killer headphones in the $500-$1000 price range. Seems like headphone makers just jumped by that price category in an ever more intense race to the top...of your willingness to break your wallet. Looks like we're going to get some relief from MrSpeakers.

My good buddy Todd the Vinyl Junkie (TTVJ) had donned his Hawaiian shirt in my honor my little visit to sample his new Pete Millett designed FET output amp.

It was a lovely 35 mile motorcycle jaunt on the interstate through flooded pastureland to Three Forks, Montana; and lovelier still to hear the Arête when I arrived at TTVJ HQ. Let's have a quick look at this new product ....

CES is a big show, there's no way to know everything that's happening there while you're there. I thought a good surf of the last two weeks of headphone news would show some additional fruit for review sample requests.

And, of course there's some newsy odds 'n ends.
