  1. FiiO FH5 Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors

    5.00 star(s)
    Disclaimer: I purchased the FH5 for personal use with my own money. I didn't participate in the review tour. I'm not affiliated with Fiio in any way. In this review I'll be comparing the FH5 with the Fiio F9Pro and iBasso IT03 (my current benchmark for a U-shaped mid-fi IEM), both of which I've owned and used extensively. My main source is a Hiby R3 and I've been usng them on and off for ~60 hours now. What I look for in a IEM: I don't consider myself a really discerning listener. In many cases I can't tell between FLAC and 320 MP3, hence I rarely...
  2. Westone W30 Triple Driver Universal Fit Noise Isolating Earphones, 78503

    I purchased the T10i for myself and spent about 50hrs listening to electronic music, hard rock, heavy metal, jazz and classical while sitting, sleeping or working out.   This is an emotional review for me as I was really excited to see such a well built and ergonomically designed IEM that didn't skimp on the lows but still (according to reviews) managed to maintain high resolution and clarity. I won't spend much time on the packaging and accessories. There are plenty of reviews and photos out there already covering these. Will focus on what matters...
  4. Dunu DN-1000

    5.00 star(s)
    Update after about 3 months with the DN1K.   Design, build quality and fit: The housings feel very solidly built, although some ppl have reported the glossy finish peeling off. Cans are a bit heavy but no problem staying in my ears, even without the spacers. Wearing them cable down can become fatiguing on the ear canal after a couple of hours, but cable up with the earguides is a breeze. Unfortunately, they are not great for sleeping with. The nozzles are the widest I've seen on an IEM (the balanced armatures are housed there) so they are...
