I can only imagine how difficult it would be to have a business and deal with the likes of headphone-enthusiasts. (If headphone-enthusiasts could only see themselves for the true way they are).....lol Then find time for R/D...advertising, shows, customer support and quality control. Not to mention the trials of putting new and innovative product to market! I’m sure I simply left out 100 other things, not to mention personal life. I owned my own business at one point in the past, and even though you don’t have a grumpy boss to contend with, those 13 hours days start to add up quick and run together. At times I didn’t know if an was coming or going. So this gives me an extra level of respect for business owners adding magical inventions to the Head-Fi community. Not to mention credit due for those small little art-forms we stick in our ear for a musical experience like no other................as a direct result of their effort. Cheers!
