Headphones
 So, I've been asked about headphones recently by a lot of friends.  So much so, that I thought I'd write down a few words, more regarding what you should not buy, rather than what you should.  This is simply due to the enormous amount of generally good, and wildly varying headphones out there.

As most of you know, I'm an audio engineer, and as such, I analyze music most of all days.  To you, this could mean that I'm automatically an audio snob, and anything I say won't mean much to a normal person listening to music for enjoyment.  I don't think this is true.  If you care at all about audio quality, please consider this advice.

For the past few years, a brand of headphone has become wildly popular.  I can assure you, it is not popular because it sounds good.  It's popular because it's marketed a lot, and it's marketed very well.

If you are considering a new pair of headphones, and you are interested in audio quality.  Please shop around before you decide to buy a pair of headphones based on popularity.  For the price, a trip to your local Best Buy, and a few moments of comparison will decide for you.

Headphones I use in the studio are the Grado SR-225, and the AKG Q-701.  I also enjoy listening to my Sennheiser HD-650's from time to time.  These will probably cost more than you're willing to spend, but there are many headphone websites out there which can provide a few great options at a much lower price.

If you have any other questions on what not to buy, google can provide some help.
