Why? Because Christmas music is lovely, and it’s finally starting to get cool in Massachusetts (from whence I am now blogging). As I haven’t lived through an East Coast winter in a decade, the cool seasons are a single unit in my sense memory; cool weather simultaneously means Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. And since Halloween […]

Timbre, also called tone color or tone quality, is the quality of a musical note that differentiates different types of sound, such as a trumpet and a guitar. When these two instruments play a note with the same loudness and pitch, they still sound different. That is because the timbre of the instruments is different. […]

Velodyne is sponsoring a VMA event to benefit VH1 Save The Music Foundation today in Los Angeles. We believe very strongly in restoring instrumental music education to America’s public schools. Learning to play a musical instrument, especially at a young age, offers a variety of benefits, ranging from stress relief to doing better at school. […]

There are many reasons to soundproof a room. Maybe you want to block outside ambient noise. Maybe you want to soundproof your home office to block out your kids as they shout and bang into things. Or maybe you don’t want to disturb neighbors as you turn your speakers and subwoofers up. Whatever your reasons, […]

If you’ve ever owned a Mac, then you’ve probably used, or at least heard of, the application known as GarageBand. It’s there, on every single Apple computer, for your use. On a rainy day, when there’s nothing for children to do, they plop themselves down in front of the computer and discover that they can […]

In 2008, a contest was set before artists and designers. The challenge was to design headphones based on a song title. The contest, entitled the Nokia Music Almighty Headset Competition, has spurred the creation of numerous unique headphones. A particularly inspired design came from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” The headphones, called “The Graveyard Shift,” features zombies, […]

There have always been great chasms separating generations, but none so much as right now. We live in the era of technology, the Technocratic Age, and we youngsters are eager to adopt new technologies. The older generation, namely our grandparents, has more trouble with them. Perhaps they don’t want them, perhaps they don’t like them, […]

My name is AudiOdysseus. Admittedly, I would never describe myself as a hero of any kind and I tend to get seasick in open water. But I love adventure. There is nothing I appreciate more than exploring new territories and gathering information about the world around me. Those are also the types of posts you can expect from me. I’ll be writing mostly about new gadgets, emerging trends, and my work-related travels to other lands.
I'm a lover of pop-culture, a runner with a mad sweet tooth and an addiction to coffee. Read my musings about life, movies and music happenings here and the world at large. If you see me on the freeway I am most likely singing very loudly in my car. Honk and say hi!

Born and bred in the Silicon Valley, I have an innate passion for all things technology. I'll post about home theater, quality sound, apps and much more. If I bump into you, its probably because I'm looking at my iPhone. Sorry!
College student and Velodyne intern. I love social media and journalism. Hail To Pitt.
Owner of vPulse and vFree and curious for the ventures of Velodyne Acoustics, I will be exploring our headphones and what we do next. Stay tuned as I share what I find.
Really, there’s no deep meaning behind my name. I’m the Summer Muse because I started writing here during the summer, I absolutely adore music, and I often lose myself in my musings. I take walks with my dog, read Yahoo! Finance news, chase seagulls, and am an absolute master baker... of pecan pies. I hope to one day be a New York Times Bestselling Author... or an astrophysicist. I haven't decided yet.
Born and raised in Silicon Valley, I am a student at San Jose State University and Marketing intern at Velodyne Acoustics. I am avid San Jose Sharks hockey fan and San Francisco 49ers football fan. When I'm not watching sports, I'm listening to music and thinking deep thoughts about sound.
