I'm a lifetime tinkerer and lover of all gadgets. I prefer to repair rather than replace so I have taken most things apart and sometimes I'm even successful at putting them back together. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my wife, son, and two cats. I like hazy IPAs and disc golf, preferably at the same time.

REVIEW – I prefer headphones that hook over my ear since in-ear headphones never seem to fit me quite right but mainly so I can keep them loose which allows me to still hear the outside world. I like to remain aware of my surroundings when running or biking outside so I was very curious how
