Audio Nerd Alert

How many sets of headphones do you have? You probably have at least a pair of junky earbuds, if not some nicer headphones for your computer or stereo. But who decides what they're supposed to sound like, and how?
On Saturday at 1pm, it's another episode of "So What Do You Do, Again?" in which we ask people about their line of work.
In this episode, our guest is Fortuna-based C.Crane headphone expert and audio engineer James Adams. KHUM being a station full of audio enthusiasts, we jumped at the chance to pick his brain.
Having just helped C.Crane launch a new headphone line, he talks with KHUM about:
- Differences between Chinese and American listening preferences
- How audio experts adapt to genre popularity
- What kind of r&d goes into headphone design
- Why certain headphones sound great on mp3 players but not on stereos
