I wanted to post this for quite a while. Since several years I am looking for speakers for my iPod/iPhone. I bought several speakers all between 100 € to 400 € but never got too happy with what I purchased. Maybe the problem was that I wasn’t sure of what I really wanted. I always thought I want something portable but then realized that just about anything on the market that is portable really hasn’t got the audio quality that excites me.
Finally I consulted my coworker Matthias Ertel. He’s the man when it comes to speakers. He knows just about everything with regards to speakers. He knows what makes the real quality difference. He told me a while ago about his hobby but somehow I never took advantage of this. So finally I have asked him if I could stop over at his place in order to take a look at his speakers.
He welcomed me over and I had one of the most exciting evenings since long. He asked me about the music I am listening to. So I gave him my iPhone. He plugged it into his system and we started to listen. At the start I was surprised that he run the speakers with relatively low volume. I always thought music is good when it’s loud but this evening I started to understand that speakers ain’t need to be loud to really excite you.
I think I could fill a full page just talking about my excitement but let me tell you, it was a very exceptional experience. I felt I listen to a band playing music right next to me. I heard details such as the breathing, the squeaking of guitar strings, and I heard each single instrument playing in distinct locations. I saw the music rather then just heard it. I heard details at any pitch which I have never heard before … again the volume was turned fairly down.
The speakers are actually looking gorgeous. It’s like stylish furniture. And there are only two speakers which ensures that the sound is not distorted as with 5:1 systems or with systems that have a separate subwoofer. These speakers don’t need the fancy stuff.
To cut a long story short. I got those speakers as fast as possible and since then I am convinced that this was one of the best deals I have ever made and that this was well worth the money invested. I am lovin‘ it!!!
I invite all of my friends to have that same great audio experience. I promise you that you will leave home with a bright smile on your face!
And please take a look at Audible Emotions. That’s my Matthias‘ Web site. Thanks Matthias for the great experience. It’s not about the speakers, it’s all about the emotions that come with it.
