About Audio Bacon

We are curious audiophiles.

At Audio Bacon we value genuine impressions from actual listening tests. Although we see the merit of taking an objective approach, we believe one’s enjoyment of music is largely subjective and prefer to approach from that angle.

There’s much to be said about the human emotional response to music and given the fact we all listen differently, these things just can’t be quantified. Due to age, exposure to loud concerts, birth defects, and life experiences, no two ears hear the same.

The goal of this journey is to design a system that will take you to "Audio Nirvana." You may gravitate towards tube amplifiers with unshielded silver wiring. Or the sound of single driver speakers with no crossovers. You may even enjoy the clicks and pops of listening to vinyl.

Our goal is to provide helpful insight and guidance. We do this by listening to anything - and everything.

Our methodology: We spend an enormous amount of time listening to products, testing permutations/edge cases, and reaffirming our results across different systems (and ears). We aggregate notes and address any anomalies. We also perform these listening tests over time. This is in hopes of providing real value to our readers.

Lastly, it’s easy to dismiss something as snake oil, but unless you’ve heard it yourself, you’ll be more constructive by actually spending time with these designs and do actual listening. Laws of physics and science apply - but unless you’re omniscient, you should question everything.

We believe there’s still much more to discover in the realm of psychoacoustics. Until then, trust your ears, because they’re the only ones that matter.
