Tom Petty’s Wisdom and Will Transformed American Music Forever – TIME

Posted: Wednesday, October 04, 2017

Tom Petty, who passed away on Tuesday at 66, felt like part of the rock firmament in a way that was different from your Pauls, your Micks, your Anguses. Both solo and with his storming backing band The Heartbreakers, Petty specialized in a loose-limbed style of rock that grooved as it felt utterly human, with Petty’s wizened voice, full of wisdom even when it was recounting the simplest boy-loses-girl yarns,…

Posted: Wednesday, October 04, 2017

“She was just starting her life,” said a close friend, Casey Lubin, 32, a banker. “That’s why I don’t understand how this could happen.” For some, the weekend in Las Vegas was both ritual and reward. Adrian Murfitt, a 35-year-old from Anchorage, had just spent a grueling summer working as a commercial fisherman. He had fond memories of attending the Route 91 festival last year, so he booked another trip…

Up-and-coming country star Luke Combs had just started his set on the smaller of the two festival stages when Kody Robertson, an auto-parts salesman from Columbus, Ohio, squeezed in at the end of the bar next to Michelle Vo, an insurance agent from Los Angeles.

Posted: Wednesday, October 04, 2017

Nura’s come a long way since last June. Back when the hardware company last stopped by our offices, its headphones were giant, like a pair of old library headphones recreated on a 3D printer. Their innards were splayed out next to them in a separate control box. It seemed impossible that the company would be able to fit all of that into a reasonably sized set of cans. Last month,…

Country DJ Bobby Bones on the Las Vegas Shooting and Helping Fans Cope With It – Variety

Posted: Wednesday, October 04, 2017

Occasionally, after a tragedy, country music finds itself in dire need of a town hall. In 2001, Alan Jackson provided a post-9/11 sounding board when his song “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” appeared a couple of months later. In 2017, people generally don’t wait that long to talk out the trauma — especially when the attack this time was literally on the country music fandom itself. Bobby…

Bowers & Wilkins PX headphones pack adaptive noise cancellation – Engadget

Posted: Tuesday, October 03, 2017

That’s all well and good, but it’s not enough to differentiate them from the other products out there. As far back as 2009, Sony had integrated a similar sensor into its MH907 earbuds, with the likes of Parrot’s feature-packed Zik 2.0 over-ear headphones, and Apple’s AirPods following suit. Plus, these days, everywhere you look an audio company is sneaking some sort of tech into its headphones. And, much of it…

If I had to list the most commonly requested features from readers looking for headphone-buying advice, it would look something like this: wireless, noise canceling, stylish, and preferably easy to hook up with something universal like a USB-C connector. Alright, so the last item on that list is primarily my own desire, but pardon me for getting excited to see that Bowers & Wilkins’ first noise-canceling cans, the PX, do…
