Brooko's Test Tracks

So I can keep them in one place - and refer to a list (by link) with my reviews, I've compiled a list of the test tracks I use.  Some are definitely for a set purpose (eg Amber Rubarth's Binaural "Tundra" for imaging and sound-stage), whilst others are simply tracks I know well - and use so that I can cross check headphones for a wide range of suitability across genres. Still others are there simply because they reflect my eclectic taste in music   All of the music listed I do actually own - most on CD, converted to FLAC.   Over time I'll try and keep the list... read more

The Best BASS Headphones ( a Head-Fi Wiki)

Under Construction           Group 1  "Cannons"   Cannons are headphones that produce an excessive to enormous amount of impact that can be felt from the cups to the ears  and beyond. They vibrate the skull, they vibrate/tickle the cheeks, upper neck and cause physical sensations. This physical sensation can and does interfere with the accurate delivery of what are widely referred to as good response curves. The "mids" as they are the adjoining range are most affected by the over boosted low frequency. The "V" shaved EQ slope is applied to create an illusion of... read more

Ibasso DX50 FAQ

The Ibasso DX50 is a $239 baby brother to the $830 DX100. Smaller, less powerful, with less onboard storage (8gb vs. 64gb) and using a Wolfson WM8740 24Bit DAC Chip opposed to the ESS Sabre 9018 desktop-class DAC chip in the DX100. However, with a nice onboard amp and a crystal clear analog lineout, the DX50 is quite a bargain and flying off the shelves. Lots of owners means lots of questions, answers and useful tips. This FAQ is created as an attempt to answer some of the most common questions without having to dig through (at the time of this writing) 338 pages with... read more

Hisound Firmware and Directions

Hello guys Jack from Hisound just provided me with the updated Studio V and Rocoo P/BA firmwares as well as directions. I decided to make a faq page as it will give others the ability to add updated firmwares and such regarding Hisound products in a centralized area.   Update: Guys I'm being told now that there are some compatibility issues with larger files types (FLAC and I'm not sure with WAV) as well as the files not showing up in alphabetical order. So just letting you know. I'm also hearing that you can only load this firmware via Windows XP? I'm not sure... read more

The ClieOS's List

This is my list of IEM ranking, originated from my Concise Multi-IEM Comparison that has been discontinued and now stands as a simplified independent list that will continued to receive update. Scroll up and down for ranking, left and right for sound signature. Note: This is only a personal assessment and far from be-all-ends-all of a guide. It should be seen as as starting point of your own research, rather than an easy workaround that could cost you more down the road. The fact is, there is no simple way to fully evaluate an IEM and certainly no universal consensus... read more
