Audiophile or Audio-Phool? I don’t claim to have golden ears with magical properties or any ability to create music. But I have a deep appreciation for music, founded at a young age and curated over the years.
I run the Headphone Audio, Headphone Gear for Sale, and Headphone Offers groups on Facebook.
I’m unapologetically a gearhead, and I love tubes, buttons, meters, and switches. I find myself trapped between an appreciation for the sublimely built gear of the past and a desire for the convenience of the newest high-tech digital devices.
Headphones became a primary music source when a baby came along. As they say, I haven’t looked back. Over the past five years, I’ve contributed reviews, DIY, modding, deep-dive, and instructional articles to Headphonesty, eCoustics, and HiFiGo.
My daily listening rotates between DIY tube amps, vintage JBL speakers, behemoth over-ear headphones, and TWS open-ear IEMs. I appreciate high-resolution digital files and maintain a healthy vinyl addiction. I equally respect new shiny’ and ‘old lustre.’ Heck, my antique car still sports a minidisc deck.
As with everything, take it all for what it is: this is just one person’s opinion.
