Just read it and very enjoyed. Great write-up and illustration. I also very like the design and layout.
Worthful stuff, thanks Head-Fi. Looking forward for next one, if it's planned. :)
Very impressive effort! Thanks to all involved.
I have been trying to explain the benefits to colleagues of upgrading from the white ipod earbuds (for my sake as much as theirs) and this will be an invaluable guide!
I would say that Guide, like you said, is geared more towards people starting to get into the world of Hi-Fi Headphones. In that respect, it was very good. Though I agree with a few others, that throwing in a few budget gems would be a good idea.
Side note: Please post some more your headphone video reviews. I very much enjoy them. Though I am sure you are very busy and it is hard to make time to make them.
thanks Jude for this guide! yeah budget section would be much appreciated. :)
The closed/semi closed circumaural section will really need to be expanded in the Holiday Guide. I'm very much looking forward to the additions of:
Yamaha Pro line
Sony MDR-1 line
AKG Tiesto line
Did I miss any?
Good to know. Nice read.
Good moment to walk on in here.
If you happen to be in the Philadelphia area (assuming based on your username), Worldwide Stereo in Montgomeryville has a decent selection of headphones from this guide to audition.
Their store in Ardmore has a good selection as well including the full Grado line and a couple of mid line amps set up for demoing.
Nice, when I was last in Montgomeryville, they were expanding their Sennheiser line all the way up to the HD800.
