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.

Astell & Kern are at it again, the company seems intent on rolling out new tech in 2018 at a breakneck pace and the new A&ultima SP1000M is the latest in a series of new players the company has debuted in the past couple months, this time in a smaller chassis to round out their flagship line.

We're about 5 days in on the Audeze Mobius Indigogo campaign, and 2100+ backers have already raised $550k, blowing through the $50K goal by an order of magnitude! Doesn't surprise me a bit, Sankar Thiagasamudram, Audeze's CEO, told me of these forthcoming headphones some time ago and I've been chomping at the bit to have a listen.

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.

Like listening to the Vinyls? This phono stage has a direct headphone out, so you can skip a further amplification stage.

This is a pretty cool headphone. Certainly seems like a forward thinking push towards smart headphones to me. I sure as heck didn't want my experience with them to be on a noisy trade show floor. Fortunately, Audeze is in Orange County not too far from CanJam in downtown L.A., so I arranged a visit to their factory before the show for a one-on-one audition of these new cans.

High fidelity seems to be more and more focused on the inclusion of headphone amplification within not only the strict definitions of preamplifiers or integrated amplifiers, but also for the decidedly digital side of things, where more seems to get packed into the equation for the discerning consumer.

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!

A knock at the front door usually elicits a smile from me, a groan from my family and loud, vicious barking from our dog. This time the knock was courtesy FedEx and HIFIMAN who have just shipped me their brand new HE1000se and HE6se headphones for review.
