Hi Folks, Jim here from the sunny Bahamas! I’ve worked as a pilot for 33 years, much of that internationally. So I got into headphones in a serious way in the early 1990’s in order to listen to music while “on the road.” I was tired of compromising my listening during my travels (where I really had more uninterrupted listening time) compared to my high-quality home audio setup.
I discovered Tyll Hertsens and HeadRoom about that time and purchased my first travel rig with a Supreme Headroom amp (complete with it’s massive 4D-Cell battery pack) and a pair of Etymotic ER4’s. I was sorry to read of Tyll’s recent retirement from headphone reviewing. Those of us who appreciate the current state of the headphone “world”, owe him an enormous debt of gratitude for his involvement in pushing headphone equipment and community to where it is today.
I look forward to reading many interesting discussions here!
