  3. Ultimate Ears Pro 18+

    5.00 star(s)
    DISCLAIMER The UE18+ Pro was provided to me by the Ultimate Ears (UE) team free of charge in exchange for an honest review. Special thanks to Mike Dias and David Gutierrez for helping to expedite the unit. This is a review of the first generation UE18+ Pro, and hence my unit was prior to the development of True Tone Plus drivers.

    DISCLAIMER The Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 was sent to me Christian from Massdrop in exchange for an honest review.

    DISCLAIMER The Massdrop Plus Universal was sent to me by Christian from Massdrop in exchange for an honest review. The unit that I was given is a Development Validation model and as such may not completely reflect the end product received, which differences I will highlight in the review. In an effort to streamline future review processes, this will be the first review in which the style of writing is tweaked. Please do leave a comment if you prefer the newer style or the previous one. INTRODUCTION Hot off the heels of the recent Massdrop x...

    5.00 star(s)
    DISCLAIMER The Sony NW-WM1Z (and NW-WM1A) was loaned by Sony Malaysia in collaboration with Sony Japan to me for a month, in which it was promptly returned on the agreed date.

  7. Massdrop x NuForce EDC In-Ear Monitors

    4.50 star(s)
    DISCLAIMER The Massdrop x NuForce EDC was sent to me by Michael (Mike) and Christian from Massdrop in exchange for an honest review. Due to the inconsistency in tuning for EDC samples received by many reviewers, Massdrop has sent out a second sample to most if not all reviewers to ensure the EDC’s evaluated are of the intended tuning. I have since received a second EDC sample. I thought it would be interesting to include my original writing for the first unit in for comparison. This review is written based on the unit with final tuning. Certain...

  12. Chord Electronics Mojo

    4.50 star(s)
    DISCLAIMER This is my first ever written review, and frankly I have no prior experience of writing a review for any kind of item unless you count that “Delivered on time. Item came in one piece. Good service” kind of sentences that you see all over each Amazon item. So I figured, what the heck, I might as well try to have fun with it while I’m doing it. All forms of comments or criticisms are welcomed as long as they are presented in a civilized manner. So yes you can slam me for possibly making the review longer than it should, or for it to be...
