Five Tier Listening Solutions

I think about my listening experiences, what works, what doesn't, and especially where and when.

Without wanting to go TOO far overboard, I came up with my FIVE TIER solutions. And, in the end, it came down to 'where' you listen rather than 'when' and 'what' or 'why'. Confused? Let me explain.

Tier 1 - The Home System

Tier 2 - Dedicated Headphone System

Tier 3 - Laptop listening

Tier 4 - Mobile (iDevice)

Tier 5 - Mobile (Car)

I know this seems like a lot of technology, but once you get to Tier 3 and below it gets a bit repetitive or facilitates re-use. They all have their benefits, their discrete technologies, and their strengths and weaknesses.
