Mostly an exercise in what InnerFidelity writers would want themselves for Christmas.

Honest journalism at its best!

Ok, ok, so it's not a whole lot to look at but that's one of the things that makes me like it. And I really like it a lot.

A short time after posting my budget CIEM article I was contacted by another manufacturer, Alclair, and asked if I was interested in trying their Reference CIEM which they thought would be a good fit for an addition to the article. As it just so happened, I had a spare set of ear impressions so I sent them on their way and a little while later received a brand new pair of CIEMs in return.

It's that time of year again, pondering over cool gifts for the audiophile or headphone enthusiast in your life can be a chore. Well, the InnerFidelity writers have just made your choosing a bit simpler by producing our Holiday Gift Guide for this year. Some really cool stuff in the guide this year. (I particularly liked Nate's DIY oscilloscope choice—man, what I woulda done to have one of those as a teen.)

So, peruse the gift guide for the next few pages and keep in mind those audio geeks you love, maybe that perfect gift will jump right out at you!

This story starts way back in 2004 when I first started getting into listening to music with headphones. At the time there was no such thing as a custom IEM and really, there were precious few choices in the IEM market period. Today there's a new IEM manufacturer around every corner but the custom market has exploded, with manufacturers both large and small providing options to suit just about every taste and budget.

As an engineer I have a great deal of respect for any thing (product, device, tool, whatever) that's able to serve multiple functions and more importantly do them all well. I understand the need for laser-focused, niche products (and own a few) but there is something very valuable about a device that can serve multiple masters without disappointing any of them. And so it was with no small amount anticipation that I unboxed the final pre-production prototype of Headamp's (www.headamp.com) latest portable offering, the Pico Power.

There's a place on the web like a bar on a back street, dimly lit and cozy, where the hard-core headphone geeks hang out. There, where it really counts, this amp is getting a lot of praise. Doug (this amp's maker), Nate (who wrote this article), myself, and a number of others are regulars there, and talk of serious stuff, like bourbon and bacon ... and amps like this.

Consider yourself very fortunate that Nate's words in a review like this get to see the light of day. Very. Good. Stuff.

I’ve had more fun tinkering around in my basement over the last 6+ years than I ever would have had wasting away on the couch watching TV. I’ve built 50 or so projects ranging from the very cheap and small to the rather expensive and large. Has it all been fun, nah, but what good journey is? If you wanna try DIY, read on ...
