    Shure AONIC 50 -

    Hey you know what? Thanks to your "reminder" of this Developer options, I managed to tweak the Bluetooth setting to play LDAC without the "fuzzy" audio! And after playing with the options - codec, sampling rate, bits per sample, playback quality, etc. it appears the "bug" is on the audio sample...

    Shure AONIC 50 Headphones and AONIC 215 Earphones

    Found the culprit. It's the Poweramp music app advanced audio output plugin setting that causes the glitch. The app offers several output plugins like OpenSL ES Output, Java based output (default) and Hi-Res Output. Apparently, this setting applies globally to all other audio players in the...

    Shure AONIC 50 -

    Found the culprit. It's the Poweramp music app advanced audio output plugin setting that causes the glitch. The app offers several output plugins like OpenSL ES Output, Java based output (default) and Hi-Res Output. After I restored to defaults, the LDAC sounded very clean now. All's well. Now...

    Shure AONIC 50 -

    Hi! I noticed the "rattling" noise too. It's basically distortion, and it seems to occur only on LDAC codec. No issue with SBC and AAC. I couldn't test aptX because by default all my phones selected the highest HD codec which is LDAC. I had to manually unselect "HD Audio" under the Bluetooth...

    Shure AONIC 50 Headphones and AONIC 215 Earphones

    I just got mine from a local distributor to review. Here's an unboxing video for those who are interested. Interesting circular box with legs so that it does not roll around. Does anyone tried the connection to LDAC? I tried the AONIC 50 on OnePlus 8 Pro, Pixel 4XL, LG V30+ and the LDAC sound...

    Review by 'musicphotolife' on item 'Master & Dynamic MW65 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones'

    The last time I reviewed a Master & Dynamic headphones was the MW60 in 2016. I was very impressed with the overall craftsmanship of the product, while the sound quality is smooth though not exciting. The latest release MW65 is, in short, miles better in audio quality while retaining the supreme...

    Comment by 'musicphotolife' in item 'Jabra Elite 75t'

    Hi @Killygon , AirPods Pro are more neutral sounding. Forward and detailed midrange, subtly clear treble and warm bass. The Jabra 65t is super-strong in sub-bass and bright in treble, poor midrange details. Call quality is on-par, but Jabra can connect to 2 devices at the same time so that would...

    Review by 'musicphotolife' on item 'Jabra Elite 75t'

    Jabra gained popularity in the consumer audio with their mono headsets in 2000s. They later expanded into stereo headphones which I reviewed with great potential. They continued to improve on their audio signature and met my listening standard with the Jabra Rox Wireless (which I bought). I also...
