The 404 1,065: Where it's all in our heads (podcast)

Today we're talking all about headphones with CNET Audiphiliac Steve Sphere Guttenberg and InnerFidelity's Tyll Hertsens. Topics range from headphone recommendations to a breakdown of terms and what the criteria used to measure sound.


Tyll Hertsens from InnerFidelity.com and CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg join us on today's episode of The 404 Show. The 404

Today's episode of The 404 is a valuable resource for anyone obsessed with headphones -- classic audiophiles, young audiophiliacs, musicians, producers, and casual listeners will all benefit from Steve Guttenberg's knowledge, and he brought a friend! Tyll Hertsens is largely credited for creating the first portable headphone amp and currently the editor-in-chief of InnerFidelity.

With Tyll's help, we'll run through the differences between on-ear and in-ear headphones, give credit to two companies responsible for introducing high-quality headphones to the next generation of audiophiles, and we'll even spend a little time dissecting the criteria for what makes a headphone "sound good."

You've certainly arrived at the right episode if you're shopping for a new headphone! Tyll, Steve, and I throw out a bunch of recommendations with models ranging in style, design, application, and music genre. As always, you can check out InnerFidelity's Wall of Fame as well as CNET's Best Headphones list to see a roundup of the best in the industry.

After the break, Jeff and I are eager to talk about the United States taking credit for the Stuxnet virus . It's all detailed in an upcoming book, "Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power," but today we'll spend some time going over Stuxnet's sticky history and what the evidence means for the future of cyber-warfare.
