Surprisingly good Hybrid Experience

Posted

Pros: Build Quality, Instrument Separation and detail retrieval, Handles most of the genres well

Cons: Fit can be a bit tricky, Source dependent?

First of all I would like to thank Hifinage (http://www.hifinage.com/) for arranging a review tour and sending this to me. They are really stepping up their game and slowly increasing the product offering, which for us Indians is very good. I am not an expert reviewer and the opinions mentioned are purely subjective on the basis of audio gear that I have available with me at this point of time.   Source: AV RX-375, Fiio X1, Huawei Honor 6.     File Format: 320 Kbps, Flac     Packaging: The packaging, is pretty straightforward and functional. There is a carrying case included with four set of tips. I would wish, there were a few additional tip choices...

Amazing Device for the price

Posted

Pros: Build Quality, Sound, Price, Size

Cons: Nothing really for the price, Lock button/Option not available

First and foremost, I would like to thank Hifinage(www.hifinage.com) who have initiated this review tour in India. Hopefully, we will have more tours like this in future.                                   Packaging:   The packaging, is very simple. A cardboard box with the DAP in a plastic chassis along with the USB cable.     Build Quality:   This is a solid little device. Brushed aluminum, with round metallic buttons on the top. Nicely fits in the hand or pocket and all the buttons are easily accessible. The way the buttons are lined up, once someone gets...

Doesn't really offer much!! Make sure, you demo this before buying.

Pros: Comfort(it is subjective), Isolation,

Cons: Tangle prone cable, No chin slider, Might be extremely uncomofortable depending on shape of ear canals, Feels cheap, Sound quality

I am going to keep this short.   SOURCE: Cowon C2 320 Kbps Mp3 and Flac files.     GOOD:   - Fits my ear properly. I am sure, whatever i do, they won't fall off.  - Isolation, is good.   BAD:   - I feel that based on the shape of ear canals this could turn out to be a nightmare for a few people to wear. - Just a flimsy pouch and three tips - Looks and feels cheap when you hold it in hand. Doesn't feel like a $70 product. - Cables are thin and tangle prone. Actually, it would be very easy to break the cables. - What the hell? No, chin slider !!!     UGLY:   - Bought them here in India for approximately $70. It doesn't...

My Good Fortune

Posted

Pros: Everything

Cons: Not really portable(but I don't care), ear pads

From the various headphones I have owned my favorite till now has been MDR-V6. I have the HD-25-1 II as well and from the perspective of sound they are very good but I am not a fan of on ear headphone. I like them to cover my ears completely and somehow, the HD-25 I II make me a tad uncomfortable on a longer listening session.   I was researching regarding MDR-V6 upgrade and read a few recommendations regarding MDR-7509 HD. I posted a WTB classified but didn't get any responses. Furthermore, in India its impossible to find any good headphones.   I was casually browsing through ebay India website and saw the listing for 7509 HD, the seller supposedly had 10 pieces and...

Great for the Price

Posted

Pros: Instrument Separation, Clarity, Fit, Bass, Soundstage, Isolation

Cons: Thin Cables, Cable Length, Vocals

This is my first review and moreover and I am not an audiophile by any means. I would try to list out what I feel are the pros and cons. I am comparing these with RE-262 which I bought for approximately same price.   1. Price - In India they retail for around $140-150 which by any means for a triple driver IEM is good.   2. Received them approximately 8 hours ago and still trying to wrap my fingers around their sound.   3. Cable looks very fragile, could have been much thicker than this. By the look of it I still prefer the cables of RE-262 and Brainwavz M2. But only time can tell. One thing I don't like about this one is the right cable is way to long. I...
