The Little Bundle Of Joy

Posted

Pros: Output power, Two people listening, Size, Form Facor, Very "Fun involving sound"

Cons: Give us a bass boost switch, no carry case.

It's been a pleasure taking on some of Brainwavz new products for 2014, today we're going to look at one of their new portable amps, a first for Brainwavz to my understanding and a mighty great effort. The amp is called AP001 so let's take a look. I'd like to thank Brainwavz for the sample.

Takes intimacy, emotion and vocals to new levels.

Posted

Pros: Detail, Vocals, Bass Quality, Mid-Range, Excellent Price to Performance Ratio

Cons: No cable cinch, Extra tips required for newer users. (little things)

Let me start off by saying this review is a little different from others I write, mainly because this IEM has set a new level for me to call a reference towards future testing and comparisons. Floating around the forums I had seen the name Fidue mentioned a few times but completely overlooked it due to the abundance of new IEM hitting the market each month. However, thanks to a good friend of mine was offered the opportunity to sample Fidue's A83 hybrid. What was about to happen came from completely no-where. So let's take a look at what came to be the best Hybrid I've heard in 2014. Fidue A83: Price: At the time of writing this Fidue A83 is currently $319...

Quite an impressive budget earphone to say the least.

Posted

Pros: Clarity, Quite balanced, Clean, Clear mid-range. Value

Cons: Thick cable, not the biggest fan of Its appearance.

Recently I was contacted my Brainwavz to sample one of their brand new products. This review however will be a little different from others and quite a bit shorter as we're only doing some basic design impressions and mostly what counts, the sound to give you guys out there a grasp on S0's signature. To my understanding Brainwavz S0 is a budget orientated in ear headphone that's going to be priced around $50 USD. Firstly I'd like to once again thank Brainwavz for the S0 sample!  Brainwavz Website: http://www.yourbrainwavz.com/index.php   Design: The S0 takes on quite an intriguing  appearance, especially for those...

Very Impressive Performance & Price Ratio.

Posted

Pros: Natural timbre, Detail, 3 Adjustable tuning filters, Cable, Packaging

Cons: L/R Markings far too small, no cable cinch, Treble filters too bright.

Firstly, I'd like to thank Rock Jaw for the Alfa Genus sample. Only a few weeks ago I hadn't heard of the company Rock Jaw, however through a friend was offered to sample one of their new products. Being more than interested in the filter adjustment tuning feature and neodymium drivers I happily took on a review sample. Let me say it's been more than interesting and delightful, especially tinkering around with the 3 different tuning filters. It's almost like having 3 earphones in one, if the intended sound of Alfa Genus sits well with you that's a very welcome feature.   Specifications:   Driver 8mm...

Posted

Pros: Comfort, Build, Accessories, Design, Value, Pricing

Cons: Possibly a little heavy at first / slight mid-bass bleed

Brainwavz HM9 is a portable / foldable, super comfortable headphone priced at $150 USD ($119 at the time of writing on Amazon) that surely grabs attention including mine, with it's stylish almost futuristic appearance and 40mm drivers Its sure to please anyone out there looking to purchase something modern, up to date and different from the mainstream crowd. Let me start off by saying I've had an absolute ball reviewing this headphone it's been a real joy to use such is the case with every Brainwavz product I've tried to date. They make to impress, price sensibly and give it their all for the consumer..I'd like to thank Brainwavz and...

Brainwavz S5, We're Catching You GR07.

Posted

Pros: Good detail, non fatiguing mids, natural (unique timbre) Build quality.

Cons: Lower treble a little too forward / slightly one noted, cable a little weighty / springy.

Brainwavz are at it again with their new 10mm dynamic driver based IEM named "S5".  I must say I was intrigued to try the new sample and where they'd come from Brainwavs B2 I owned many months ago (and loved). S5 takes on an a new elegant design, rather modern appearance and although a little larger than we've seen still fits the bill nicely with its stealth looking housings. But how does it sound? Well, let's take a look as I think it sounds pretty good. Let me start off by saying I'd like to thank Brainwavs for the sample it's been a wonderful experience.       Specs:  ...

Wonderful transparent ear listening pleasure.

Posted

Pros: Clarity, detail, transparency, detachable cables, light weight housings, excellent bass, 3D soundstage.

Cons: Maybe a little bright for some, packaging could be a little more fancy.

I must admit It's been quite a journey with the company T-PEOS since I tried their H-100 going way back to October - 2012. Since then I've heard most of T-PEOS mid tier line up including H-200 hybrid released around March - 2013 which grabbed quite the attention on Head-Fi and probably for good reason as it scored notably high in some reviews other than mine. I still rate H-200 one of the better hybrids for the price range, under $300. The features including detachable cables with consumer friendly price was most welcomed from T-PEOS. Moving onto March - 2014, we meet again with T-PEOS brand new H-300 hybrid, lets see if T-PEOS set the bench...

If you ask them it will come.

Posted

Pros: Great sound, build, features. high resolution, strong imaging, black background, dual card slots

Cons: Click wheel durability? Lock screen options need improvement. Still a little off neutral (for my preferences)

Firstly, I'd like to say special thanks to James from FiiO and Joe for offering us a wonderful tour on their new FiiO X5 unit. It's not everyday we get to sample a new product before release, this has been a wonderful opportunity not only to give members a grasp on the player though also examine whether the unit might be for myself as a keeper or future purchase. I will try to write as even review as possible. The FiiO X5 unit I have with me is a loaner unit for 10 days to assess my likes and dislikes. I received the X5 unit on the 25th of February 2014. Firmware version: FW1.10 My past history with FiiO being I haven't been particular ...

RHA MA750 RHA MA750 Noise Isolating Premium In-Ear Headphone (REVIEW)

Posted

Pros: Deep sub-bass extension. Natural timbre, Impressive mid range attack, 3 year warranty, Sensible pricing.

Cons: Slight mid bass bloat, some vocal sibilance with certain DAPs, Fit might be bothersome for some.

Recently on Head-fi forums I was approached by another member to contribute in a competition RHA Team were holding to review their new MA750 dynamic based IEM.  I knew very little about the company from Glasgow UK or any of their offerings in the past, I didn't even know how much MA750 was worth on receiving them which I think we can look at in a positive way, going in fresh!  I'd like to thank RHA Team for the review sample as it's been a pleasant surprise indeed. Please make note the version I have is MA750 which does not come with the mic/controls.   RHA-MA750 • 303F grade stainless steel housings • Handmade 560.1...

T-PEOS H-200 - 3 Way Hybrid Earphone (Welcome The Changes)

Posted

Pros: Balanced Signature, Clarity, Versatility, Value, Mic Cable

Cons: Isolation could be better, Soundstage could be wider (read on to find out)

Shin-woo Tech who recently changed their name to T-PEOS has brought us a new product inherit of their H-100 last year. Their new Triple Hybrid called H-200 has been redesigned from the ground up, undergone extensive tuning before finally reaching the hands of selected reviewers on Headi-Fi. I was excited to hear this release was finally underway wanting to hear what changes had been made, also to see if T-Peos have indeed corrected previous issues with their earlier model, it appears they certainly have which should please a much wider audience. H-200 welcomes us with a brand new signature leaning much more towards balance and audiophile territory. Specs: Driver Unit : Double Balanced...
