  1. Hearing loss: early signs of damage in young adults who regularly attend loud clubs and concerts While the link between noise exposure and hearing loss is well known, it’s possible that the extent of hearing damage from noise exposure has been underestimated. This is because very subtle hearing damage can occur which is not detectable by pure-tone audiometry – the most commonly used hearing test by audiologists. This test measures our ability to detect very quiet sounds in a quiet environment. Most amplified concerts exceed 100 decibels – meaning we shouldn’t be exposed to this level of noise for more than 15 minutes in an eight-hour period without proper hearing protection. However, unlike work-related noise, there is no specific legislation setting noise limits for audience members. Studies showed that all participants had clinically normal hearing as measured by pure-tone audiometry. But those with the highest levels of noise exposure had poorer functioning of the minute hair cells in the inner-ear which are integral to hearing. We also found that people with higher levels of noise exposure had poorer conduction of sound signals from the hearing nerve towards the brain, which could negatively affect how the brain processes sounds.
  2. Great amp, (i'm biased of course)...& I have used speakers from PMC, JBL, Linn, Tannoy, & Unison Research (yes they make speakers, not just amps). Able to handle them all (some had better synergy of course than others), but all were musical & the L507uX was always in control...
  3. The Sennheiser RS 165 is what my partner uses, & when I have tried them they are quite comfortable & allow analog or digital connections to your TV (a lot of wireless headphones only have digital inputs). Also easy to use, press one button...
  4. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) & Betty Blue (1986)
  5. A very Black Friday: how the fetish for vinyl is sending prices soaring, a mainstream article on this issue... "...there’s a diehard group of consumers who will continue to support this state of affairs. It’ll never go away because there’s always a market for it – it’s been so over-fetishised that it’s part of the culture now. That’s why the majors have adopted some of these silly pricing policies.”

  7. Sonic havens: how we use music to make ourselves feel at home Hi, I came across this research article about how non-audiophiles use music. It makes some interesting points about how people 'use' or 'consume' music that could help inform the audiophile community & perhaps bridge the gap between the general public & the audiophile community.
