Hi-Fi Earbuds: A Workshop to Educate the Consumer

Jared Friedman, a professional in-ear monitor reviewer and student at Cal Poly, will be giving a workshop focusing on in-ear monitors and his process of reviewing them for Linsoul Audio (Chinese hi-fi audio products distributor) as well as a basic guide on how to decide what IEMs to buy for your own music preference. Starting with a quick introduction on what an IEM is (including a brief overview on the 2 driver types) and what differentiates something that sounds good from something that doesn’t, Jared will then be jumping into sound signatures and what he listens for when reviewing new products. Then he will address common misconceptions and example tracks for critical listening before opening the front up for people to test any of the various IEMs he has brought as examples. Included with each IEM will be a frequency response graph as well as some quick notes about the sonic characteristics and the price they cost to buy (as a reference point). The whole event is expected to take between 30 and 45 minutes, including the audience testing portion.

Location: TBD

AudioCon 2019
Feb
14
to Feb 16

AudioCon 2019

Cal Poly AudioCon is a platform for education, networking, and sharing innovation. The first of this three day event is in the form of a career fair style exhibit. Companies demonstrate what they do through interactive demos of their products, as well as talking to students about audio career opportunities and what it's like to work in the industry.

The second day, both students and companies present projects. Students can present audio projects they are working on and get advice and/or resouces during the project round-table. Companies can present potential R&D projects for students to work on or to use as school projects.

On the third day, companies will host workshops to educate students on a variety of audio-related topics (for examples, check out some of the workshops from AudioCon 2018). 

For more information and sign up forms, visit the AudioCon 2019 webpage.

Presentation from TEECOM: Modern Sound System Design and Consulting

There are literally billions of operational sound systems in use every single day. These go far beyond studio recording for music or film. Auditoriums, theaters, music venues, conference rooms, hospitals, emergency communications systems all have an immensely important audio component and there are audio professionals behind all of those system designs.


In this session we’ll talk about how and where we use different types of speakers and microphones. We’ll also look at how networked audio technologies like Dante, AVB/TSN, and AES67 have changed the way sound systems are designed.

Presented by Josh Srago in 20-128 (Engineering East).
