Cameron (aka GoldenSound) is a reviewer and content creator with a fascination not just for the sound and experience of products, but the design, theory and engineering behind them.Cameron’s life has always been closely linked with music, playing the piano, violin and drums from a young age, playing in an orchestra, and singing in both large choirs and smaller ensembles.

However, his journey into high end audio began during university, where after being thrown in at the deep end with a listening session of the Focal Grande Utopia speakers, he knew he had to find some way to get even a small piece of that experience at home.

After purchasing the Sennheiser HD800S as his first truly high end pair of headphones, his love for audio only grew further, and soon his love for technology and engineering began to play a large part as he explored the various rabbitholes of audio theory and design, both analog and digital.

Later beginning his own review channel which besides discussing the subjective sound of audio products, also discussed and explained various aspects of the design and engineering behind them. He also publishes objective tests and measurements for various audio devices.Before moving to working in audio full-time, Cameron was an economist working in private equity. He has keen interests in sailing, Formula One, EUCs and live music.

Cameron’s favourite genres include:
Jazz, Electro-Swing, Classical, Deep House, Electro-Orchestral, and Percussion or Funk Driven Pop.

Cameron’s favourite artists include:
Boogie Belgique, Bob Moses, Plini, Alt-J, Arlo Parks, Half Alive, Big Data, Brock Berrigan, Daft Punk, Emotional Oranges, Grissini Project, Her, Lewis Del Mar, Woodkid, Polyphia, The Long Arm, Louis the Child, Manganas Garden, Mansionair and Pølaroit
