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.

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.

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)
