Originally published on SoundStage! Xperience


SoundStage! Solo’s editor in chief, Brent Butterworth, is one of the world’s most experienced audio journalists. He began reviewing audio gear professionally in 1990, and started publishing his audio measurements in 1997.

Since 2011, Brent’s work has focused mostly on headphones. He has measured more than 300 headphones and subjectively evaluated perhaps twice that many. His headphone measurements and reviews have appeared in SoundStage! Xperience, Sound & Vision, Lifewire, AudioXpress, and Wirecutter, and he has previously served as the editor in chief of Home Theater and Home Entertainment magazines.

Brent is a member of the Audio Engineering Society and regularly attends seminars and conferences on audio measurement. He also has more experience in blind testing and multi-listener tests than any other audio journalist working today, which gives him unique insight into how others perceive the performance of audio equipment.
