    Looking for a portable (or semi portable) stereo with music memory

    I am looking for a portable (boom box) or a small stereo that has built in speakers that can easily be carried. The unit should have pretty good fidelity. The big feature is that the device must be capable of reading/downloading the music from a thumb drive, or have a self contained memory. Does...

    An inside look at a $2,200 pair of custom headphones

    Short article from Popular Science "Normal earbuds have just one, sometimes two speakers on each side. But those micromachines must handle a wide range of sounds, from Mariah Carey’s high register to Barry White’s silky bass, so they struggle to faithfully reproduce all the right acoustic...

    On Peer Reviewed Science

    Regarding the article posted by @Wombat: I have a science background (Chemistry) and I found the article to be basically accurate. All sources of knowledge should be received with a certain amount of skepticism. Peer review is just one more "filter" that tells the reader that the article has...

    What's with all the spam threads?

    Just a curiosity question: The spam I have seen here is so far off topic as to be useless (ie there is no political message, no sales pitch, no request for action, etc.), what do the spammers get out of it? Just bragging rights or the pleasure of disrupting the lives of others?

    40 Hz and Football related traumatic brain injuries

    Just an article that has probably no nexus to audio science, that describes how "Traumatic brain injuries could be caused by low-frequency [40 Hz] vibrations" Physics World...

    Card carrying objectivists

    Not exactly.... There are some conditions. Probably doesn't apply to politics and emotional responses. See: Four elements required to form a wise crowd[edit] Not all crowds (groups) are wise. Consider, for example, mobs or crazed investors in...
