    Why Aren’t All Simple Solo Vocals Recorded in Mono?

    A high-end audio reviewer friend of KeithR, Jeff_T and mine introduced me tonight to the wonder of mono recordings. He played a female vocal with simple acoustic accompaniment (Julie London). He had the same song recorded in both mono and stereo versions. The stereo version sounded like an...

    MEE Matrix 3 Around-Ear Bluetooth Stereo Headphone review

    Molami Plica ("designed for women") On-Ear Stereo Headphone review

    Here's something really different. I avoided the first editions of "women's headphones", from Molami and Frends among others, because the aesthetics said no to me, but this one looked interesting for testing purposes at least, because of the more subtle design and the low price. The sound is...
