While doing some of my research for this website, I came across a Most Excellent resource covering the area of Headphones. Sean Olive - Research Fellow with Harman International - and his fellow scientists have been busy conducting all sorts of studies of Listener Preferences and how headphones should behave to produce the best listening experience. He has produced some interesting studies and videos that should interest everyone using headphones. I am providing a link to his blog page for your reference.
Thanks for all the hard work, Sean!

I added a video that walks you through how to equalize your headphones. Its a simple process and I provide some test tones to download and try. I don't have the complete 31 band set for those of you using a 31 band equalizer, but its coming shortly. Also, as soon as I am ready I will post MP3 file sets so you can do the same thing on a portable device with onboard EQ. I also welcome any comments or suggestions on how to make it better. Thanks all!!! Here is the link for the video.
I have added a Top 10 page where you will find the Top 10 products for various categories:
- Top 10 Bluetooth / Streaming Speakers
- Top 10 Bookshelf Speakers
- Top 10 Powered Portable Speakers
- Top 10 Audio Accessories
The Top 10's will be updated each month so you know what is Hot and what is Not!
CES will begin tomorrow. I'll be taking lots of pictures and taking various notes. I'll be concentrating on the High End Audio Products, but intend to visit Sony, Samsung, Creative Labs, and various other consumer level booths... Unfortunately I only have one day at the show, which if you have ever been, is not enough time to really digest everything! If there are other folks going and willing to share information, please send me a note Luippl@hotmail.com . I will be happy to post your information and or a link to your page / report.
The International Consumer Electronics Show is getting closer and closer! I plan on attending CES and having a look at various new loudspeakers and headphones! I will keep you posted as to my experiences and notable products out there for 2015!
