    The Meze Empyrean Review By Icefalkon When I received these from another Head-fi member as part of the review tour, I had to let them sit for a few days as my DAC has experienced some troubles. So, I unpacked them, went “oohhh…. ahhhh” over the box and the insanely good cables that came with them. Then about three days later I started listening to them. Now, these were a replacement as the original ones put on tour had a problem. The previous reviewer got to demo these for some extra time and burn them in before I got them. They are more...

They are more than sufficiently burned in at the time of this...

  6. iBasso Audio DX200 Reference DAP

    5.00 star(s)
    This review of the iBasso DX200 is long overdue. I received my unit a year ago, long before it was publicly released. I have been putting her through the paces for a year now and am finally ready to share my thoughts and insights on the device. First I would like to thank Paul from iBasso for all his support to the entire community over the last year. He and the iBasso Team have shown us all that a manufacturer with integrity can produce a DAP that is both affordable and comparable to players far above it’s price point. They have also shown us that...

  8. iBasso IT04

    Here is my review of the iBasso IT04 Universal IEM. To begin I was given a pair of these to show at the iBasso booth at the 2018 NYC CanJam. I was never asked to do a review but here I am… First let’s talk about the design. They went with a dark acrylic shell with a conch flange for stability. The shell is slightly bigger than the IT01’s and IT03’s which is due to the 3 balanced drivers and 1 dynamic driver. They come with iBasso’s CB12 braided hybrid copper/silver balanced cable along with a single ended adapter cable. The package is very nicely...
  9. Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-Power 2.1 PC Speaker System (CA-SP211NA)

    Fantastic 2.1 speaker setup that I've attached to a modded Creative X-Fi Music card.  Powerful bass, excellent (although wired) remote, and great sound quality. I definitely recommend!
  10. Symphones Magnums

    5.00 star(s)
    Total package price was $450 for the mahogany cups, Symphones v4 Magnum Drivers, Lambskin headband, and removable silver hybrid cable with Neutrik connector.   Amazing soundstage, clarity, and detail in these. They sound better than much higher priced cans and after a lot of help on here from some great members I found out who made these and I couldn't be happier. I loved these for the sound quality and craftsmanship before knowing who orchestrated their conception and execution and am simply and  happily stunned by the work.   Steve from NYC
