  1. SHOZY Zero IEM

    4.50 star(s)
    Before I begin, I'd like to thank the representative from Shozy for sending me a set free of charge in exchange for my review. I will try and be as honest and truthful as I can in my review regardless. To be honest, when he approached me I had pretty low expectations for these since he was a bit vague on providing any specifics, he just told me he was sending me a "really good sounding IEM" and that I should burn it in before evaluation with at least 100 hours of orchestral music.    My set came in a bubble wrapped bag with a set of eartips and...
  2. Dunu DN-1000

    4.50 star(s)
    First of all, I would like to thank DUNU for choosing me as the winner of a contest to receive a free pair of DN-1000s.    The DUNU DN-1000 is a part of a relatively new and evolving class of IEMs, known as “hybrid” IEMs because they have not only balanced armatures but also dynamic drivers inside. In most cases, the dynamic driver is assigned to the bass, and the balanced armatures to the mids and treble. The DN-1000s are no different. It’s hard enough to make a good sounding IEM using just a dynamic driver or one balanced armature; adding more...
  3. FiiO RC-MH1 Headphone Upgrade Cable

    I would like to greatly thank Fiio for giving me the chance to try out their new cables.   Personally, I found it quite interesting when I heard Fiio, who I had always thought of as an amp and DAC company, was making cables. I received both the RC-MH1 for the Phillips X1, Sony 1R series, and V-Moda headphones and the RC-UX1, a 3.5mm extension cable.   While I don’t any of the abovementioned headphones that the RC-MH1 was made for, I do own multiple V-Moda cables for my modified Fostex T50RP headphone and I was curious to see how the RC-UX1 worked...

  5. DUNU DN-23 Landmine. Headphones earphones

    4.50 star(s)
    First off, I'd like to thank Rocky for the chance to review the Dunu DN-23! I received this set as a free review sample I get to keep. My equipment I'll be used is my Project H Amp/DAC consisting of a custom Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC and an Objective 2 amp with Burr Brown OPA2134 opamp. My last.fm profile can detail the music I generally listen to: http://www.last.fm/user/mechgamer123 It consists of classic rock, indie rock, modern rock, classical, anime OSTs and music, Jpop, and some electronic thrown in the mix.   I'll start off by talking...
  6. FiiO Andes (E07K) Portable USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier - 96kHz/24-Bit

    5.00 star(s)
    First of all, I must thank Bowei006 for lending me the E07k. I won't be going into the sound quality all that much in this review, but will instead go over the physical characteristics of the E07k. The overall design of the E07k is very refined. It looks better than both the E7 and E11, which I have owned at one point or another.    Picture Time: The front of the E07k is mostly glass, with a snazzy bezel, and piece of metal running along the bottom.   The back continues the same brushed aluminum as the front and sides of the unit...
  7. Sennheiser HD 600

    5.00 star(s)
    Wow, It's been over a year since I started my Hi-fi journey, quite hard to believe for me. Before I owned the HD600s, I had exclusively been listening to the Brainwavz B2 IEMs. I heard the HD600s for the first time in mid-July, and while I wasn't blown away at the first listen, I definitely knew I needed something other than the B2s, because the treble spike in the B2s was starting to get on my nerves. After doing a bit of research, I finally settled on the HD600s. Without further ado, here is my formal review: The accompanying thread can be found...
  8. Brainwavz B2 Dual Balanced Armature Earphones

    5.00 star(s)
    Hi Head-fi, welcome to my first ever IEM review! I feel I should review these before getting my HD600s, because these probably won't get as much head time after that. I picked up these IEMs used from a fellow head-fier exactly 5 months ago. My source for the review: iPod Classic 6G<~~Fiio L9 LOD~~>Objective 2 FLAC 70% Classic Rock 20% Jpop 10% Alternative (Check my profile for specifics, or http://www.last.fm/user/mechgamer123)   Comparisons I have: AKG Q701 (Very short listening time before returning) Hifiman RE-ZERO...
