You might notice some changes on this blog starting today, with the acquisition of Unsplash by Getty Images, I no longer in good conscience can use their images on my posts. I dislike Getty Images for things like this, and I'm sure they will ruin Unsplash because they are a company only focused in income … Continue reading RIP Unsplash.
As some of you might already know I'm the curator of Headwize Memorial, a project I took under my wing, so fans could have a way to access a backup of the core projects of HeadWize, looking at the stats of the site, I'm happy to say it went above and beyond being a backup, and it's … Continue reading EtyFans, my new project.

The chi-fi market … Continue reading No more reviews.
Like all hobbies there's competition on the audiophile hobby, it's not the first or even the second time I write about problems in this community which can be very toxic, but today I'm gonna write again about that pet peeve of mine called elitism and sob behavior. I write this from the perspective of both … Continue reading On audiophile snobs.
In US English, a lemon is a vehicle (often new) that turns out to have several manufacturing defects affecting its safety, value or utility. Any vehicle with such severe issues may be termed a lemon and, by extension, so may any product with flaws too great or severe to serve its purpose.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon_(automobile) Anyone who visits this blog knows I … Continue reading Chi-Fi and lemons.
I already wrote about Discord communities around here, but in the start of 2020 I decided to make my own Discord server which for my great surprise is slowly getting more members. Anyway this is my view on the maintenance a server requires, keep in mind each community is different just like each administrator. Creating … Continue reading Maintaining a small discord server.
I've been a bit busy these days, so I want to give you all an idea of what I've been doing since the start of the year. Well, I'm reaching out to some reviewers and acquaintances so I can have a bit more audio enthusiast interviews on the blog. I'll probably stop doing interviews very … Continue reading March update.
It was early 2013 when I first started writing on this blog, back then I despised audiophiles who spent hundreds in so called audiophile improvements. Most of those improvements aka tweaks were subjective and from my point of view probably snake oil. In my mind those audiophiles raised the price of gear, because audiophile companies … Continue reading What changed since I started writing about Hi-Fi?
So it's that time again, and some people are already busy doing typical new-year promises and future goals lists. I'm no different, but I avoid promises I can't keep and my goals are rather simple when compared with most of the population. As life goes on, I just want to enjoy a growing relationship with … Continue reading Going forward.
Hydeout VitorAcha que o AS10 pode ser uma boa opção para performances ao vivo? Tenho o KST preto e ele não fica firme. Uma orelha sai mais que a outra e como ficam frouxos, o grave é quase inexistente quando tenho de movimentar mais. For my non-Portuguese readers, Vitor asks if the AS10 is a … Continue reading Is the AS10 good for live performances?
As you probably noticed on the end of my BGVP DMG review I shared some measurements of the frequency response of the nozzle filters. As we speak I still have the doubt if I should share measurements done with amateur tools but then again because I'm an enthusiast I can't really look the other way. In … Continue reading Measuring in-ears the budget way.
Just the other day, someone asked me why I didn't write about my blog on other communities. First, it's bad etiquette to push your own stuff in the house of others. Second, I rather enjoy having a low profile on this hobby. Having a low profile means I can still have fun while doing reviews … Continue reading Why I enjoy having a low profile.
I must admit that I got mixed feelings about reviewing headphones. My problem happens before I start writing, I feel like I'm not good enough to pass along my opinion in a language I don't fully grasp yet. This insecurity isn't new to me but it's still a handicap I often try to vanquish by … Continue reading Reviews and my new approach to the blog.
Finally had some time to update my blog, mostly trying to comply with the new European Union's privacy laws, the disclaimer is now better and more visible across the blog. I removed the obligation of having to insert an email address on both the contact page and commentary section. It will give me more work with … Continue reading Improving the blog.
