2023 April status update

I’ve successfully neglected touching or updating this blog for (I think) close to two years now, almost all of which I have spent working full time as a software engineer. It’s largely been an enjoyable experience, but I think that what I wrote about i…

On the experience of good audio

I recently started listening to music with my Sennheiser 6XXs after around six months of using nothing but earbuds (Sennheiser Momentums and Momentum True Wirelesses).

Now, I love the sound on my earbuds, especially compared to the many other ea…
