Default Tyll Hertsens retiring.

Tyll from Innerfidelity (the headphone reviwer) is retiring. Planning on living in a 88sq ft home on wheels. Sad to see him go.

I wonder how long it takes Tyll to realize living in 88 sq ft home is not as much fun as he envisions it.

He started it all - the whole high end headphone renaissance. It’s great to see people go out on top and follow their passion, wherever it leads. I wish him well on his next journey.

A bit ironic that Tyll would review some of the worlds best headphones over the last 20-25 years and choose a Bose noise cancelling model to walk off into the sunset after his career as a headphone connoisseur is over.

And a pair of Beats But also MrSpeakers Aeon Flow for more serious listening. I think it goes to his character that he's not worried about image or the price, just what works for him.

He's using the Beat's for computer listening, but relying on solar panels means a c/entrance portable amp, AK 240 Dap and the Mr Speaker's for critical listening. He want's to perfect the ukelele around the campfire. I think the freedom pill will pall after awhile as well, and he's sold his large house also. He also said his ear's are too old for the job now, but I'm sure we'd all like to move on in his shoes too.
