  • About

    Japan is interesting...
    Headphone Inventory:
    • Cosmic Ears CE6B (Smooth reassuring sound. Helps on long flights. Kumitate Lab Licht Silver Plated OFC cable)

    • Massdrop Plus IEM (Cee Tee deserves some serious credit for putting this product out there)
    • Final Audio Design - Heaven V (black chrome)
    • Ocharaku Co-Donguri Shizuku (Japanese teapot insanity. Spinfit Tips)
    • ADDIEM - Apple BA Dual Driver (Actually a good IEM. Apple should have replaced their current / old earbuds with this, instead of having to buy this stand alone.)
    • KZ ZS5 (Chi-fi is coming to end us all)

    • Venture Electronics VE Monk (original)

    Not Used So Much
    • Audio Technica CK400i (Not great. But good for running)
    • Monoprice 8320 (Budget. Good on dangerous holidays)
    • RHA MA350 (It's a Scottish wunderkind. Now with wife who won't let them go)
    • Sennheiser CX 300 (The original one)
    • Vsonic GR04 (Feels like a weird EQ, I think Vsonic is still prototyping their sound with this release)

    • Etymotic Research - HF2 (Practically a bit more v shaped ER4 with a Mic)
    • Mee Audio Pinnacle P1 (Mee's TOTL. Zinc housing)
    • Sennheiser Amperiors (Low impedance aluminium HD25. Amazing. Little annoying if you wear glasses)

    • Sony MDR V55 (Good for its price-point)
    • Trinity Phantom Master (the remastered master)
    • Yamaha EPH-100 (Great isolation. Smooth)
    • V-Moda Crossfade LPs (No longer owned. Returned. Sounds like an AM radio)
