As we continue our very own B&H-flavored version of Oprah’s Favorite Things just in time for Valentine’s Day, one thing that comes screaming to mind is headphones. Everyone uses them, and they elicit passion, from casual listeners all the way to audiophiles.

Long the standard bearer for delivering portable audio, the 3.5mm headphone jack had its plug pulled one final time, in Cupertino, on September 7, 2016, and reportedly met its fate with a steely courage you don’t often see outside of Apple designers. In its long and storied life, it survived countless audio formats, from vinyl to 8-tracks, cassette tapes, and CDs. In recent years, it had even...

Thursday, January 21001: Head West Old Man 07:31 EST, Newark Liberty International Airport An early-AM Uber has brought me to gate C104 at sprawling Newark Liberty International airport, waiting on a 9:03 AM flight into LAX to attend the NAMM 2016 show to schmooze, network, report back, and provide input to the company’s buying staff.
