Personally I think headphone reviews/recommendations would be a nice addition to the magazine. More and more of us are getting married and having to "tone it down" around the house. Those blaster booms might be cool when you live alone, but when you've other ears to think about it's best to keep it under wraps.
Like the majority of older, retirees, we have downsized. My study is adjacent to the master bedroom suite. Hence, I have made several accommodations.
- Store my 5.1 speakers.
- Relinguished to use headphones.
- Purchased a Saitek Eclipse keyboard to decrease study lighting.
Granted that speaker systems with massive subwoofer sound great, but they are impractical in a multitude of situations, e.g., dorms, during NORMAL sleep hours.
I've even been forced to put my Altec "Studio Monitors" up for sale.
Thirty-five years ago, I had a pair of KOSS electrostatic headphones that appeared to sound as good as my Studio Monitors.
Today, there are a number of companys which produce high quality headphones.
I would certainly like to see periodic headphone(s) review articles in MPC.
