Firestone Audio moves upscale—known for their products in the $200-300 range, they release a flagship headphone amp. Fully balanced, plenty potent, and innovative in several ways, the Bobby proves Firestone is worthy of competing with the big boys.

NuForce is on a roll with new releases—pick a category and they likely have at least one new product on offer, or maybe several. All of it seems very desktop friendly, so I figured I should give several of them a go.

Surround sound from your existing headphones: often promised but very rarely delivered with any degree of success. Most attempts end up sounding like a novelty at best or garbage at worst. Finland's DSPeaker quietly releases a potentially breakthrough entry in the category, cleverly dubbed the heaDSPeaker Home. Is it any good?

It's extremely hard to compare custom IEMs. Few users have more than one pair, so direct personal comparisons are rare. They can't be measured by InnerFidelity because they don't fit in the measurement head's ears. What to do?

Epic!
