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

Luxury & Precision LP5 32bit DSD Portable Lossless Music Player

“ Click any picture for full sized 1200 x 800 images INTRODUCTION I’ve been reviewing on Head-Fi for a while now, and one of the great benefits is that it has given me a chance to meet some wonderful people, and to hear some exotic audio gear that I would never have had a chance to spend time with.   At this stage I’d like to thank my on-line friend Alex (you know him as Twister6) for...” --Brooko

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

“ 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

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)

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
