Hi everyone!   Here at Head-Fi, we’re always looking for ways to get to know members of our community better.  While we all come together to discuss our common interests, there are obviously many other dimensions and interests in our community (as evidenced by a lot of the discussion in the Gear-Fi and Members' Lounge forums). To help us understand our audience in new ways, we have a fun and easy quiz for you to take!     The survey only takes a few moments and...
 This discussion is off-topic, I know, but I wanted to comment about this (and similar sentiments). The iPhone was not the first smartphone, agreed. To the best of my knowledge, it was, however, the first of its type, and it changed the direction smartphones were going in. Who wasn't blown away after seeing the iPhone press conference? It's easy in the years since to forget that day. The first iPhone was far from perfect (no copy-paste, slow connectivity, etc.), but it was...
 @bmichels, I'm not sure why you can't hear it. Perhaps you're not sensitive to the imaging shift it imparts, and/or perhaps you're listening to stereo recordings with very little difference between the left and right channels, or monaural recordings? Listen to this video (particularly the first minute or so) with headphones on...  ...and switch through the Hugo's crossfeed settings. You'll get it. (And if you want to hear Shannon Hoon sing a capella, turn off crossfeed,...
I have to largely agree with @macbob713 here, especially with my experience with two of Bose's later products, the Bose QC15 and the Bose QC20. While I have noise-canceling over-ears with sound quality I prefer over the QC15, I still haven't heard a commercial over-ear actively cancel more noise than the QC15 (and the louder it gets around you, the better (comparatively) the QC15 sounds). The Bose QC20 actively cancels more noise than any other consumer active noise...
    Bose is suing Beats for infringement of its patents pertaining to ANC/ANR (active noise cancellation/reduction). The causes of action are listed as:      Count I – Infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,717,537 Method and apparatus for minimizing latency in digital signal processing systems Excerpt(s) from the patent: "While widely used in the art, the conventional analog approach for reducing noise in a system is not without its problems. ANC systems...
I've known Andy Regan for years, he having been in the audio industry since before I had any involvement in it. Several months ago, when he called me to tell me he was thinking about joining Jerry Audio, I told him I hoped he would, thinking he and JH would be a great fit. And it was a great fit.   In the months since, Andy has really done a lot to rein in the chaos that comes with the hyper-growth at JH Audio, and there's still a lot more to do. If you read the release...
 True. Until headphone (and cable) manufacturers had developed 3.5mm plug bodies that were slim enough, you needed a dongle to use any headphones with the first iPhone's recessed headphone jack (not including, of course, the earbuds that came with it). At that time, though, Apple had the power of offering the first smartphone of its kind--there weren't any other choices for a smartphone like that then. (Still, though, I thought it took some chutzpah to release with that...
After it was revealed that Apple's upcoming MFi (Made for iDevices) specifications would include digital audio output (48kHz stereo) and digital audio input (48kHz mono), Forbes reported that the iPhone 6 would abandon the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. (Forbes later added a question mark to the headline, acknowledging that the article was more an informed an opinion that a fact.) And Forbes was certainly not alone in at least suggesting that the iPhone 6 might not include...
 I'm sorry you feel that way, Lachlan. But if you feel me unethical, I can understand why you're leaving for good. Bye.
