When I review headphones, I usually wear them almost continually throughout the work day for a couple of weeks. These were absolutely the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. Ever. And the sound quality was superb. (Bonus!) #Sennheiser#headphones#review
True story -- I was reviewing these headphones during an extended stay in the hospital. Two doctors came in to check my condition and ended up checking out the P5's. The listening session only broke up when a nurse came in to remind them they had other patients! #Bowerswilkins#P5#headphones#review
When I first started at Crutchfield, I thought "computer speakers" were those terrible-sounding cheap plastic things that used to come free with computers. So auditioning the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1's was a real revelation. #review#Crutchfidld#Bowerswilkins#speakers
One thing that really struck me as I auditioned the Sennheiser HD 650's was how transparent they were. For some of my test recordings, it was like looking through a newly cleaned pane of glass (if I can mix a metaphor). #Sennheiser#headphones#review
I enjoyed reviewing the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air -- the sound was outstanding. There was one drawback, though. Its smart styling made the rest of our family room look rather dowdy in comparison. #bowerswilkins#Zeppelin#AirPlay#review
One thing I continually enjoy working for Crutchfield is the opportunity to try out all kinds of products -- even those a little beyond my price range. The Sennheiser HD 800's were a real joy, and I was glad to have them (even if only for a little while). #Sennheiser#review#headphones
With all the choices available (and more coming all the time), I'm still surprised/dismayed at how many friends I see still putting up with the sound from their Apple portable. #iPod#iPad#iPhone#Bluetooth#AirPlay#speakers
