Hi, I’m Jacob O’Neill, I’m from Brooklyn, New York, I love all things audio and video, and am especially fond of high-end headphones, such as the Sennheiser HD 800 S (my favorite), Sennheiser HD 660 S, AKG K702 & K712 Pro and DENON AH-D7000. I have seen a lot of headphones in my time, but most are just not worth the money they ask for.
I started reviewing headphones and other audio equipment on Soundsightheadphones.com in 2017 because I found that there was a lack of useful information available about quality headphones and many editorial sites either had an overly positive bias or were downright misleading. I’ve noticed people debating and arguing about headphones they thought were best where in fact, there were a lot of better options available. Simply put, there were too many poor headphones recommendations that it started to bother me, and I had to do something about this issue.
My passion for high-end audio began when I traded in my Beats Solo 3 for the Audio Technica ATH-M50X in 2016. I was completely blown away by how much better music sounded on studio monitor headphones, and then I’ve slowly acquired more HiFi audio equipment (Sennheiser HD 800 S, Marantz PM7000N DAC/AMP, etc.) Since then I’ve written detailed reviews on more than 100 different models from Sennheiser and AKG to Sony, Bose and many more – everything from ultra-budget models like the Koss KSC75 to Sennheiser HD 800 S.
My favorite genres of music include Jazz, Classical, R&B/Soul, Hip-Hop, Electronic and Dance/EDM once in a while. My favorite artist includes the likes of Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Alison Krauss & Union Station among others.
