Sennheiser Headphones

I recently had the fortune to lay my hands on the latest Sennheiser headphone – the Sennheiser HD800. At £999 they don’t come cheap, but I have to say these are by far the best headphones I’ve ever ecountered.

I’ve always been a fan of Sennheiser. A few years ago I bought the Sennheiser HD250 headphones for around £250 and I thought those were great. The sound is crisp, very well balanced, uncluttered, and ‘honest’. These served me well for many years. I even supervised the editing of my recent Chopin Scherzi recording with these headphones.

That is until a friend of mine in the recording industry introduced me to the Senheiser HD800. I was immediately hooked. Every review I read – and I mean every one – was unanimous in its praise. Superlatives abound, with the consensus being that these are the ‘ultimate headphones’. Read more…

It’s taken me over a week, but Joshry.com is finally up and running. And, thanks to embedwordpress.com, it’s taken me only a couple of hours to set up this blog with my own skin and layout. Ah, the beauty of instant information:)

So this an outlet to share my thoughts on the piano world, music in general, performance, and some technology thrown in. I started two things aged 10 – playing the piano and coding. Funny how maths/computers seem to go with music. It’s rather common. Piano performing has been a fantastic journey for me, and i’ve loved every minute of it (although i have to admit the practising could become rather a bind at times!). The past few years I’ve been involved with internet search marketing, and also open source software – specifically Turbocash accounting.

I’ve tried to make this site as high tech as possible. My recent recording of the Chopin scherzos is available for download – the full 92khz/24bit version, which by the way, sounds way better than a CD. In the future, i’ll be adding some HD videos as well, although that might be a while yet!

In the end, music is all about enjoyment and listening. And that’s what this site is all about – on every page, you can listen to any of my tracks at the touch of a button. Enjoy!
