Your Headphones' Greatest Enemy
by Kyle C
Working at Sound Lion has granted me an amazing opportunity to talk to hundreds of people about music, audio technology and of course headphones. It has also made me more aware of a problem that is becoming more and more rampant in the personal listening field. Most people aren’t aware that their music streams are compressed, and that they are degrading their experience and ultimately holding back the potential of their mobile devices.

We Love That Dirty Water
by Evan Z
Boston is known for a great many things. Birthplace of The Revolution (American, not the group who played with Prince). Home of the Kennedys. Only having twenty-five letters in our alphabet. Wicked snowstorms. A Dunkin’ Donuts on every corner. But maybe above all else, our sports teams. Yes, sports are the true lifeblood of the city, the one binding and common theme that runs through all native Bostonians.

Ah, How Good It Feels To Unwind!
by Kyle C
(Somewhere, 20XX): It's five o' clock. As the shift comes to a close the all-too-familiar feeling of lethargy begins to creep its way up your spine, akin to the insect which you're pretty sure was on your shirt earlier.
Unfortunately, the end of your shift does not complete your day; and the remnants of what you thought would be a nice evening by the fire begin to crumble apart before you.

Rock and roll is dead. D-E-D dead.
by Evan Z
On May 16th, the final nail was driven into the rock music scene here in Boston. It was announced that Clear Channel, who owns the popular Top 40 station, as well as the top and only hip-hop station in town, acquired the last true bastion for new rock and alternative music in the city, 101.7 WFNX. Having grown up listening to 'FNX, it was a crushing blow not only to myself, but to many others in the area, including those who have roots in Boston.

Long before our store opened, an enterprising student sparked an incredible community response with a simple question on our window - Who Inspires You?
Hundreds of post-it note answers later, with answers ranging from friends and family to celebrities to sports to things we can't mention in public, WE were inspired.
