  1. CustomArt Ei.3 acrylic custom IEM

    4.50 star(s)
    You fellas all know the Custom Art from Poland and its awesome owner Piotr (Peter) I guess at this point. He has variety of ciems and services from remolding to making custom tips for universal iems. I can say many nice things about him but if I start with that this review might be a very long one The subject of this review is his first ever acrylic ciem, the Ei.3. It is an inexpensive yet addicting monitor from Peter. The thought behind the design of this ciem was simply the getting the harmonies right and clean with correct tonality. Distortion is...
  2. The Custom Art - Harmony 8

    4.50 star(s)
    I have the Harmony 8 (H8) for a while and I thought they are really good, good enough to make me write a review about them. I had shared my initial impressions in the Custom Art thread here but they evolved and changed, mostly in positive way. It is a part of the flagship duo Piotr has now. Harmony 8 is the one I am reviewing here but Harmony 8 Pro version also reached a quite success in masses. H8Pro differs from the vanilla version with its treble performance. I personally didn't like its treble (as I am usually very sensitive to bright trebles)...
  3. The Custom Art - Music One

    4.50 star(s)
    I have Music One for a while now, I already wrote some impressions in the Custom Art thread in here. So I decided to combine them and do a proper review. It is a little gem that punches way above its price point, so definitely deserves a review in my view.   Starting with the design. Single BA per side, silicone earpieces, permanent or optional detachable cable (with a little extra cost). Mine uses the detachable system. It is an industry standard 2 pins configuration so if you are willing to use any aftermarket cable, it is not gonna be a problem...
  4. Koss KSC75 Portable Stereophone Headphones

    They have good old fun sound signature, very engaging and very dynamic. I found mids are a bit too recessed for my tastes and affected by the low region unfortunately however from a cheap can like this, I don't expect the separation of HD800 obviously. Treble is nice, sparkling very detailed and crisp. Bass could be more controlled but it does its job, it has a strong, punchy bass and when the song calls for it, it knows how to give 'boom' effect.   So what do we have here? Very good sounding on ear headphones which can easily compete against 100...
  5. German Maestro GMP 8.35 D Monitor Headphone

    Don't forget that also when you purchase them from German MAESTRO online shop, you can get a 'free' cable or jack modification done by German MAESTRO itself.   Best money ever spent in my whole life. For the ones who wants neutral sound and closed acoustic, you can not get better than these HPs. Also I assure you, these headphones would survive judgment day. Buy it and your grandson will use it years and years later. Now they become signature of me, wherever I go, they are with me.   Ps: I will improve this review but nowadays I am incredibly...
