“ 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

Zune HD 64 GB Video MP3 Player (Black)

Zune HD 64 GB Video MP3 Player (Black)

“ Well I had a chance to use the Zune HD 64GB mp3 player and I can say that the audio is NOT better to the Ipod touch but rather equal to, but again you ge what you pay for.   Zune is not as user friendly and limits the hardware you can use with it. I wasn't really that impressed with it's usability or versitility.  btw, The Apple Ipod can handle .flac files via the FLAC player...” --Canuckabroad81

Cowon D2+ 16 GB MP3 Player (Black)

“Pretty sure I had it for two years now (and I run with it all the time.carry it with me 5/7 days a week). IIn this time I went through about 5 portable earphones or IEMs, but the player survived/never felt a need to upgrade from it. It's well built, has good sq (natural if a bit warm sound if you turn off all the enhancements), outstanding battery life(and you can replace the battery with...” --svyr
