    Astell&Kern AK T8iE MkⅡ(Impressions and discussions thread)

    I think the main reason why people are deterred from them mainly stems from QC and warranty issues. IMO they have everything it takes to be popular - good sound, good fit, well-known brands and gorgeous looks, all at a quite reasonable price compared to top flight BA's cost these day.

    Astell&Kern beyerdynamic AK T8iE Review (First Impressions from IFA 2015)

    Just got an used pair of the AK T8ie MK2 yesterday (risky move, I know, but I managed a pretty sweet deal on it). Immediate impressions compared to the Andromeda are as follow (both are plugged into my ZX2):   - The AK proved to be significantly less sensitive than the Andromeda, requiring...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    ^ Great first impressions. Natural would definitely be the word I'd use to describe the Oriolus.

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    Heard that my local dealer had the Andromeda in stock, so I rushed in and brought a pair home. Here are some very preliminary impressions from me: - Really good build quality and the color scheme turned out to be a lot better in real life than I expected, slightly darkish green. Quite classy...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Any impressions so far? I'd be intrigued to hear how they fare against your current lineup.

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Ditto. Coupled with my newly acquired AK120ii on SE, I get all the airiness and soundstage I need in an IEM. The PW Audio No 5 has really nice ergonomics though, soft and supple. If I can get the sound of the Chinese version one in the form factor of the PW, I'd be willing to pay a pretty penny...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Really great review, alffla. I especially do agree with you on how a little more body to the vocals can be desired at times (with the Chinese version cable). My impression is that with the PW No.5 cable, the mids become more forward, you gain a bit more depth at the expense of width and a bit of...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    ^ Glad you liked them. If you don't mind me asking - how do you find the Oriolus fares against the A91 in terms of air and spaciousness? I've recently realised that the reason why I liked the Oriolus so much was because of how airy and spacious they are, so if the A91 can match or even exceed...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. KimD seems to prefer some obscure aliexpress IEMs over everything else, so I'm not surprised that he'd find the Martian superior to the Oriolus   Maybe somewhere along the line I'd do the same when I get to audition the Martian, but for now the Oriolus...

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    Dang, so there's no avoiding that route huh? I can hear my wallet writhing in pain you know ;)

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    I don't know about the W-01, but the W-02 cable that comes with the Chinese version (I assume both should have the same pin diameter) fits the Oriolus pretty snugly. The W-02 however fits my custom JH13 loosely as well, so if I have to make an educated guess I'd say .76

    Definitely - thank you very much

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Sorry but could you elaborate a bit more on how the Oriolus sounds with the Mojo? I am pretty intrigued by the Mojo and planning on picking up an used one soon, but reviews seem to indicate that there is marginal to zero improvement on using the Mojo with sensitive IEMs. Wondering if that would...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Based on sonic qualities alone, personally I'd rate the Oriolus higher - they have a more open feel, the treble is more agreeable to my ears and dat bass. All factors combined - tough. Do you plan on keeping just one, or both? In case you do just one, how much do you think you could recuperate...
