The Antichr oops the Anti-Beats.

Posted

Pros: Sound,build quality, mids and treble.

Cons: Need just a bit more sub-bass, better accessories for the price.

  Firstly Thanks to Sennheiser Australia and White Lotus for being kind enough to organize a tour for the Urbanite Xls in Australia. I already own the HD-25ii,CX685 and in the line for Momentum In-Ears to give a frame of reference. No, I am not a fan of the HD800, prefer the HE-6/TH900.     Packaging: As always Senn gives a big box which is necessary to fit these. Its very high quality and reflects the pedigree and the price. The headphones come with a nylon bag to carry these around and that's about it. While a bit lacking for the price, the overall quality is a face-saver as I would have preferred a hard case, 3.5mm to 6.5mm adapt or and a second wire.    ...

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Pros: Build quality, packaging, accessories, sound filters, bass response, overall value.

Cons: Might be too warm for some, need amplification.

    Is being a Jack of all trades and Master of none really a bad thing?           Firstly thank you to RHA and Lin0003 for organizing the tour of the T10i as this was one IEM I was anticipating hotly after owning the MA750 and loving its sound. RHA has been impressive so far so the T10i carries a huge burden on its steel shoulders. So without much ado lets get into the review.   Packaging: Great as always with RHA and reminiscent of the MA750. Nice big box with plenty of tips and the three filters that lead me to the days when a Discman/Minidisc/Phone used to come with a plethora of accessories and it was an occasion to unwrap those...

A solid offering by Brainwavz. Bassheads need apply!

Posted

Pros: Nice non offending sound signature for its intended market, good bunch of accessories, fantastic cable.

Cons: Mids need a bit more finesse, treble too.

Review for the Brainwavz S5.   Firstly a big thanks to Audrey and Brainwavz for providing me the S5 for review. I am not affiliated or been financially compensated for the review except the earphones.   I was contacted by Audrey to review these and received a package very quickly after our communication on Headfi. The package was very simple but smart and had all the accessories and even a set of Complys which is a great inclusion. The hard case is a nice touch too as it provides someplace to tuck these away and the flat cable ensure they stay untangled.   These retail at $100 and the accessories and the build quality would rate it much higher. The expectations of an...

Fiio joins the big league.

Posted

Pros: Capacity, power, battery life and sound quality.

Cons: Could use a better wheel. Interface needs a bit more tuning.

Hello everyone, My late review of the X5 due to PC issues.     Headphones used: AD900X, MDR-F1, HD25-ii, JVC SZ2000, Fischer FA-011, JH16 and FXZ200.     To start with, no pictures since they were all lost along with the review so I will keep it short and sweet.     To begin with, the player feels sold and well built compared to the X3 and should be able to hold its own against the rest of the DAP bunch.   The buttons feel well built and nice to the touch although the wheel could use a more rigid gearing compared to the one it has now as it feels too loose at times.     Moving on to the display, the display seems nice and clear...
