Well, I don't know about you all, but for me, this year has been pretty darn exciting...and it's not even over yet!
I've been waiting for this type of explosion of audiophile grade gear/headphones to come out for some years...not just small bits and pieces here and there then tend to lead to wishful thinking, but an explosion of real headphone gear! Hehe, seriously though, it's really great to think about our community of headphone enthusiasts that were once part of a nichy, yet well respected hobby, and passionate pastime for many, that is now really starting to hit the masses and reach out to people who would have never considered spending more then $50 for a pair of cans. To me, this means high quality audio gear that will hopefully become not only more accessible for most, but more affordable, while retaining the quality many of us expect to hear.
Shure, TDK, Sony, Denon, Ultimate Ears / Logitech, Creative, AKG, wow...I'm sure I'm missing a few more, I'm really stoked about all of the new gear!! Heck, I'm even considering starting up my review channel again! :) Anyways, I just had to share my enthusiasm with you fellow head-fi'ers, and would personally like to thank you for continuing to contribute your heartfelt reviews of new products, sharing your moments of musical enthusiasm, and most of all, supporting the love of everything audiophile.
The power of music is pretty awesome, and to be able to experience it through new and improved technologies is truly exciting!
