What makes a pair of headphones great? It all depends on your listening preferences. Some music lovers prefer cushy over-ear “cans” that isolate sound, while others prefer low-profile in-ear monitors, or even wireless, waterproof headphones that move with them. Many higher end headphone models are fully customizable as well, with everything from custom headbands to 10-foot cables to custom-molded in-ear pieces. One thing is for sure, though – as with high performance speakers, your headphones are only as good as the source files, CDs, or LPs you’re playing from.

Digital Media Players

Take your high res collection with you in the car, on the airplane, at work, or even just for private moment of bliss in your own home. Portable players are great not only for your listening on the go, but can of course be used as a source for more permanent in-home setups. You owe it to yourself to indulge in a superior, uncompressed listening experience.

Portable DACs

Not all DACs are created equal. While most equipment you hear sound from every day (your TV, phone, computer, or even your amplifier) likely has a Digital-to-Analog Converter built in, inferior ones can create unwanted noise during playback that effectively bring down listening experience. DACs bring it all back together by taking over digital timing and making your audio sound more detailed, richer, and fuller overall.
