I'm in Tokyo for the Tokyo Headphone Festival and am working with Joe on the emails to the winners and the contributing companies. I'm sorry that our process isn't faster, but this is the busiest time of the year with events and travel (and the upcoming gift guide update).I know you winners are anxiously awaiting your stuff, and I can totally understand that. Again, sorry we're not turning this around faster. Only a couple of winners have been officially notified at this...
 So let me get this straight: You're on the edge about having spent $600 on a headphone based at least partially on my opinion. You haven't actually heard the headphone, but your anxiety about this largish expense has you convinced--before having heard it--that you've been let down by me. On top of that, you expect me to debate with someone who doesn't feel the same way about the headphone, to an end that you're hoping for but that I'm not clear on--perhaps to convince him...
 I think I interpreted his comment rather accurately as what it was--a dick comment. So, again, have you or have you not heard the Sony MDR-Z7?
 I can comfortably say that it is my opinion that the Sony MDR-Z7 is a peer of the Fostex TH900. So have you heard it or not? I'm just trying to gauge the extent to which I've let you down.
 So you have or have not actually heard it, @DoctaCosmos?  I like everything I hear? That would suggest that the headphones I discuss in the videos or forums represent every headphone I come across. More headphones and other audio gear come through here than I could ever cover in the videos or post about on the forums--far more. Different things motivate different people; but what motivates me to step in front of the camera (and/or to hammer out text) more than anything is...
Dear SHaG participants,   I made an error in listing the prizes in this post here.    For Noble Audio, I said (in that post) "Noble custom in-ear monitor, model to be specified later." However, that was not the correct prize. The correct prize is a Noble K10 Universal, valued at $1599, in a one-off red color.   This was completely my mistake, so I apologize for the confusion. SHaG participants who went by the Noble exhibit at CanJam were probably already aware of the...
 Given the value of the prizes, we wanted to make especially sure that our drawing method makes clear sense to everyone. We'll announce the winners some time tomorrow, along with a video that shows how we're drawing the winners. For those prizes we don't have on hand (we have a few of them here), we'll immediately turn over the winners' names to the participating companies to direct-ship the prizes to the respective winners. Thanks again, guys, for taking the time to...
 It will be set up almost exactly like last year. The lounge area is just a little smaller, to accommodate two more exhibitors.
 I think this video had 24 segments shot over several days, so, during its shoot, there were several shirts worn, and even a haircut. Shooting was also interrupted by a partial loss of my voice for a couple/few days, and a pretty rough flu all the way through (which I hope isn't obvious in the video). Many of the outtakes are simply of me having to stop to cough and blow my nose. I'm looking forward to seeing you guys in Denver!
Here are a couple of full-resolution photos I took--my pics are obviously not as pretty as Noble's official stock photos, but hopefully you can still see how beautiful this pair of Prestige K10's is. (The amp is the CEntrance Mini-M8.)   (Click on each photo to see a larger version.)
