Are you looking for a set of luxurious, wood-grain, open-back, hi-fi headphones to compliment your reading room? Maybe you need a headphone amplifier with a super-low output impedance to drive those fancy new cans. Maybe you need a new pair of lightweight in-ear monitors that pack the sonic punch to keep you on your toes during your morning commute. Chances are you need something.
Whatever your ears desire, you can find it in the new 2014 Ultimate Headphone Guide, a collaborative production between the teams at Stereophile and Geek magazines and InnerFidelity.com. The Ultimate Headphone Guide hosts a listing of headphones and headphone amps currently on the market as well as a cornucopia of editorial content about the headphone hobby. Headphone listings are divided by type: in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear. Each individual headphone listing features product price, acoustic design, accessories list, termination type, connection type, and a full-size image of your potential purchase. Headphone amps are described by price, type (solid-state or tube), inputs, output impedance, portability, and an image.
InnerFidelity.com’s Tyll Hertsens and his team of writers provide introductions to proper headphone use and maintenance, hearing safety, and headphone DIY, as well as valuable insight into all headphones and headphone technologies—classic, modern, and cutting edge.
