    CanJam SoCal 2022 Impressions Thread (September 17-18, 2022)

    Your taste is similar to mine. Chord stuff to my ear is so overrated. I replaced my TT2 with an xduoo poke II ($400 vs $5000) and never looked back. I need to try the Auteur.

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    Very fair comparison. Do you think the warmer tonality/reduced treble of the 2022 is also adding to the perception of less detail?

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    Can you comment on any comparisons in bass dynamics. This would be the only reason I would get 2022 and sell my original.

    What is that funky red headphone i just want to know if the 2022 Utopia has more bass slam/dynamics than the original. To my ear there is no TOTL headphone with more bass slam than Utopia (maybe 1266 can compete but FR and fit is so wonky).

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    Buying used is always a risk unless you get a transferable warranty. Who cares about odds if you are the one that has a failure.

    I hear some people who have seen it in person say that the 2022 version is matte but in pictures it seems shinier than the original. Can anyone weigh in on this?

    Best Closed-Back Audiophile Headphones of 2022 | Moon Audio

    The Z1R and stealth are highly overrated in my opinion. The 9200 is underrated. My top closed back are L5000, R10P, Sonorous X, Stellia (if it doesn’t hurt your ears like me) and HD820.

    Help please I am looking for a dark tonality iem around $500 or less that is light comfortable and easy to put in the ear for bed listening. When I say dark I mean warm full bass like bio bass and recessed upper treble and highs. My main source is Sony WM1A. The closest full size headphone...

    Not a good look. This has a KKK Grand Wizard vibe…but if that is what you are going for.
