New headphone - tech sidenote

Concert for one #3, originally uploaded by fortytwenty.

On my recent trip to Berlin I had the chance to try out the new Bowers and Wilkens P5 headphones. Besides being small and even with glasses a comfortable wear, the sound quality is very good.

Definitely bigger than the in-ear-things, the P5 still folds down to a pretty small pack and can be stowed away in a decent sack provided with them.

Should you be looking for new headphones, you might want to give them a try. Sound quality on the iPhone is inderior because of the cheap D/A unit, but on an iPod remarkably well, if you have recorded your music in high quality MP3 or Apple Lossless format.

The headphones have a builöt in microphone in the cable so you can use them for hands free phone calls as well.

An example of my shots I took the analogue way during a week long trip. I visited Dresden, Karlsbad and Prague, exposing more than 50 rolls of film (mostly 120 bw).

Business and travels keep me busy this summer, so blogging is difficult for me right now. Thx for staying tuned. Have fun!
