Apple iPod nano 16 GB Black (5th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

Apple iPod nano 16 GB Black (5th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

“The moment my eardrums met the sound of my new nano, they were disappointed. Although i was using my trusty Koss PortaPros the bass felt weaker than my 1st gen iPod touch. the sound was also not as crisp as my itouch. after a few weeks i noticed an improvement in the sound. the highs and lows seem to be getting tighter, so is the bass. i wasnt aware that the equalizer is something that needs to...” --SpkrHead

Aune M1 Hi-Fi Wav Player

“Switching from desktop audio system to the dap system is a painful experience if you have a seriously monitoring taste for any music and get used to top-notch headphones system like hd800+ ecba +da8. There is no exception for me, yep, I know I am on journey seeking the best dap system for my daily routine, the bridge between mobility and sound quality, between pleasantly memorable and...” --wtnwin111

Creative Zen Vision: M

Creative Zen Vision: M

“I've got nothing bad to say about the Vision: M. It is seen as the best MP3 player made by Creative, and while I only have experience with four Creative DAP:s, I have to agree. It might not be the best sounding MP3 player out there, but it's got a nice and smooth sound and an okay custom EQ. I got mine used from Ebay in 2009. The hard drive was dead and the player was pretty beat up. I put a CF...” --Danneq

HiFiMAN HM-801

HiFiMAN HM-801

“ REVIEW of HM-801:   I've had a loaner 801 here for a week and a half, playing a multitude of 24/96 hi-res downloads and 16/44 FLAC or WAV files, and all I can say is that I've already emailed Fang that I want to buy this one to replace my iMod/Vcap dock.       I took it to Westone on Wednesday to try out their new ES5 demos which sounded wonderful with it (better balance, depth and...” --HeadphoneAddict

PURE i-20 Digital Dock for iPod/iPhone with Hi-Fi Quality Audio and Video Output

PURE i-20 Digital Dock for iPod/iPhone with Hi-Fi Quality Audio and Video Output

“I think some of the reviews above have missed the real point of the i-20 for audiophiles, it provides an excellent spdif output from an iPod. Used with an external DAC the sound is excellent and having tried some of the alternatives (Wadia, Onkyo) I'm not convinced their digital outs are any better despite the much higher prices. In fact, once I ran the i-20 from a linear PSU it was better...” --Gruffnutz

PonoMusic PonoPlayer

PonoMusic PonoPlayer

“ INTRODUCTION Anyone who’s followed my recent reviews will know that I’m a big audio fan of both desktop and portable rigs.  As far as my portable rigs go, most of my listening has been with my iPhone 5S, or my Fiio DAPs – the X1, new X3ii, and the quite excellent X5.   I was intrigued (and also sceptical) when PONO first launched – seeing a lot of hyperbole and marketing speak....” --Brooko

HifiMan Electronics HM-700 DAC with RE-400b Balanced In-Ear Headphones (Black)

HifiMan Electronics HM-700 DAC with RE-400b Balanced In-Ear Headphones (Black)

“First I’d like to thank HiFiMAN for sending me their new HM-700 DAP and RE-400B (balanced version of the RE-400) bundle for me to review. I have always wondered about the balanced players that HiFiMAN offers and what they do to balanced IEMs. From what I hear, the RE-400B is a very nice match with the HM-700 in balanced mode.     Now, if you are around on Head-Fi often, you...” --lin0003

Apple iPod touch 32 GB (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

Apple iPod touch 32 GB (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

“ Was given this through a reward scheme - and after using a Cowon iAudio7 as my main portable source - I was really interested to see how it performed.  I'm using Shure SE420 IEM's.   After converting my FLAC collection to ALAC - I loaded it up via iTunes, and then ran it through it's paces.  First impressions - really easy to use (intuitive), fun to play with, but...” --Brooko

Apple iPod Nano (3rd Generation), 4GB, Grey, Old Model

Apple iPod Nano (3rd Generation), 4GB, Grey, Old Model

“ There is only one thing to be said about my little iPod 3'd Gen... I use it for Video Lectures and Audio Books, it's a tough little piece of tech and it's lasted me a long time [since I got it used]   I do enjoy it, the user interface is very simple and straight forward. The play back quality is more than sufficent and when I had music on my iPod... I enjoyed the eq setting and my...” --Mshenay
