Lee is passionate about all kinds of audio tech and has been providing sound advice to enable consumers to make informed buying decisions since he joined the Consumers' Association, publisher of Which? magazine, in the 1990s.

Lee covers all things audio for Tom's Guide, including headphones, wireless speakers and soundbars and loves to connect and share the mindfulness benefits that listening to music in the very best quality can bring.
When not listening to music or researching the tech behind the latest audio products, Lee can usually be found tending to his cottage garden or baking sourdough bread for villagers from his home bakery.
