    Audio46 Product Tour - Questyle CMA Twelve DAC Headphone Amp (Names Announced)

    Let me first thank Audio46 for the opportunity to test this out in my home sanctuary. This is outside of the realm of equipment I usually consider so not a whole lot of equivalent equipment to compare it to. Cosmetic Package The Questyle CMA Twelve (how dare anyone substitute a 12) DAC and...

    TRN impressions thread

    TRN STM budget hybrid just showed up today, and I am impressed. I forsee this will be a budget favorite IEM. Not a fan of faceplate but they did good on the tuning and driver quality. The bass is nimble, treble is exciting but not sibilant, vocals not too recessed, clarity, and staging is good...

    BQEYZ in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    Yeah they brought that area to life on the Spring 2 over the Spring 1. I have had them since early July and my take is on the blog in my signature if anyone is looking for another comparison between old and new.

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I am really struggling with the CCA CA16, I will say I was ready to put them back in the box with the included eartips. For me the eartips really ruin these. Foams help but there are still some problems. Yes they are more balanced than the typical releases. Review is coming soon, doing my best...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    By relaxed you mean the top end? It's a little funky looking but the Toneking Ninetails I think would fit that. It is enjoyable for long listening sessions and it has various tunings that actually do make changes.

    TOUR CLOSED - US Head-Fi Tour: Fearless Audio CIEM Tour - Starting May 2019

    Glad to hear they made it safely, I liked the S8P over the S8F as well, the S8P was my favorite of whole bunch.

    TOUR CLOSED - US Head-Fi Tour: Fearless Audio CIEM Tour - Starting May 2019

    Just wrapping up with the tour kit, While the S8F and S8P are fairly close, I actually prefer the pro version- to my ears there is a slight improvement in clarity in the upper registers where cymbals sound cleaner. S8 pro is my favorite of the bunch. For the price I thought S8P/S8F > S6 Rui...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    If you have a Home Depot nearby they sell something almost identical to that small parts organizer. I have several, not just for IEMs. I also have a Stanley version that is a bit larger that fits the basic IEM cases...

    Isolation figures are interesting because they never state at what frequency. Most likely it achieves 30db at 1khz, but the reality is isolation varies with frequency. Bass frequencies are hard to block. Here is an example of a Shure SE215 Here we have the ETY ER4XR

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    I have several 2 pin IEMS that static electricity from the cable is still transmitted to the IEM.driver. The shell of the IEM is metal in both cases.

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    This is the cable I used on mine, I like the mic just because I like to change tracks or pause without taking my phone out. I only found a white version of the same cable on ebay once, but the mic is plastic. The black one from this store is the same as ones used on TRN cables...

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    Bummer. Was trying to be hopeful. No idea if this guy still has them, but they are up at his store. It was reported by others to be genuine back at the start of the year, but not sure if that is still the case. I think this was the spassear seller on ebay because the addresses both originated...
