Video review finally up. hope you guys enjoy, I've been meaning to do this review for awhile    

Good sounding entry level IEM that punches above it's price bracket

Posted

Pros: Good fun sound, good build quality, well priced, nice tonality, good detailing in the mids

Cons: lack of strain relief, to much bass if you're not a bass head, bass leeches into lower mids

Many thanks to RHA Audio for providing this free review sample.   The MA600 is tuned as a V shape. For those who don't know what that means, a V shaped tuning means the treble and bass have been tuned to sound more forward and aggressive then the mids. End result, the mids tend to sound more laid back in comparison to the rest of the sound signature. Some good examples of gear, both earphones and headphones that have been tuned in a V would be the Ultimate Ears Tri-Fi 10, JVC FX700, Dunu Trident, Sony XB700 and Fostex TH900. If you've heard any of these ear/headphones then you've heard a V shaped signature. Sometimes, and I must emphasize the word sometimes, when a V signature is...

Good sounding entry level IEM that punches above it's price bracket

Tralucent Audio 1Plus2

Posted

Pros: Great sub bass, Massive soundstage, Great PRAT, Oodles of detail, Great imaging, Great for live music

Cons: Lack of tip options is annoying, Silver cable needs a more refined look and may be to unwieldy for some people, Mids may sound to thin for some people

  Ladies and gentlemen say hello to the Tralucent Audio 1Plus2 hybrid IEM. This little gem of an earphone easily falls into the group of pricey high-end mobile audio gear with its suggested MSRP of 1300 USD. On first glance this rather plain Jane piece of gear with its beefy silver cable may not look like much but you only have to give it a few minutes of listening time to realize it’s a brute like monster in the sound department. Before we get to the good stuff lets first get the small niggles out-of-the-way. At 1300 USD I expect a lot from an earphone both in the sound department and in the form factor department. Overall, I am generally pleased with the execution Tralucent...

From The Audio Journal Of A DigitalFreak - Sound Byte: Studio V 3rdAnniversary Edition

Posted

Pros: Great Sound, Transparent, Grat Battery life

Cons: The UI Sucks

I recently decided to take a bit of a chance and buy blind into a new DAP. Over time I've slowly become more and more tired of the mainstream Apple/Sony/insert company name here MP3 players on the market and their lack of audio capabilities. Nowadays my player of choice is the iPod Touch and although I very much like my iPod's UI interface I've gravitated towards using a mobile amp to bring the players sonic signature up to speed. Although results have been very good I'm now finding myself becoming more and more tired lugging a two piece brick around so much so I've decided to give the so called boutique audiophile DAP market a shot. After a little nosing around on head-fi and some...

The Rants And Raves Of A Digital Freak: A Hisound PoPo Sound Byte

Posted

Pros: good formfactor, comfortable, lots of tips to ensure a fit, very well built

Cons: will shine with only certain types of music, no pouch, no chin slide adjuster

                                                                  Disclaimer Those of us sitting at the back of the bus who love our music reserve the right to practice a healthy dose of skepticism involving audio gear as we ride along the long winding road that is life.  Until said gear has passed our personal expectations thus meriting the mantra of GOOD GEAR any and all reviewers/reviews will be taken with a grain of salt. As natural born cynics we also expect those around us to practice a healthy level of free...
