About the Headonist

Welcome to the Headonist. If you love music and love headphones, you’ve come to the right place.

Music is my passion. Headphones are my passion. the Headonist was born of these passions, giving me and fellow enthusiasts a playground to enjoy the very best in hi-fidelity music and headphones, or head-fi for short.

I fell in love with music from an early age, listening to my parents’ 70s-inspired collection of vinyl classics. A child of the 80s, one of my earliest memories of personal audio was the miracle of Sony’s Walkman, letting me savour my stash of well-worn cassette tapes in private for the first time.

Headphones brought me closer to the music than I’d ever been before, picking out parts of songs I never even knew existed. This same fascination has stayed with me to this day, and even now I’m gaining new insights into my music library through the rapidly advancing head-fi technology we enjoy today.

I invite you to look around the site, read some of my reviews and impressions, join the conversation, reach out to fellow enthusiasts, and come back for more as often as you like. Whether you’re shopping for new gear, curious how your own gear stacks up, or only care about the music, everyone’s welcome.
