Headphone History

Based in part on the post here <http://www.schubincafe.com/?p=3303>, The New York Times on February 27 corrected its January 9 column on headphone history <http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/09/magazine/09FOB-medium-t.html>.  The comment about their not correcting their story, therefore, has been removed from my post.  More
