Earlier this summer, Tyll let you know about the Ultimate Headphone Guide to be released on newsstands this November. This week I sent out the requests for information to manufacturers. If you are a manufacturer of headphones and headphone amps and have not yet received a request for information, please email me at ariel.bitran(at)sorc(dot)com so I can set up an account for you. If there's headphone brand you don't want me to miss, please comment so we can make sure to ask for their information.

You would think the promise of internet fame would make Moose a happy pooch, but there is sadness in his eyes. He knows his owner is going to be spending way more time with her new Westone 4Rs and less time playing fetch. Taylor Kasony is the winner of our Westone 4R Sweepstakes.

Barrett McCann of Kenmore, Washington is the recent winner of our V-Moda M-80 headphones sweepstakes. In a recent meeting with V-Moda, Owner Val Kolton explained his philosophy that headphones must be both good-soundin' and good-lookin'. Obviously, McCann agrees as seen by his music choice and Pacific-coast toned plaid. Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharped dressed man.
