    Etymotic Research EVO impressions and discussion thread

    Firstly, thanks to everyone who has written impressions so far, they have been really interesting reading. I have received and spent a couple of really nice moments with them (the Australian tour unit) but first came a bit of fiddling trying to achieve a good seal. None of the sizes really...

    Etymotic EVO: World Tour

    I received the units today! Can't wait to really get into them over the next week. They are beautiful and I have been looking forward to trying a linum cable since I first saw them. I'll share my unconventional approach to getting a seal tomorrow but suffice to say I am having a fun time so...

    AudioQuest NightOwl - A closed-back NightHawk

    They are a special sound. Still a new toy but they are fitting the bill well. I didn't realise quite how beautiful and huge the case is!

    AudioQuest NightOwl - A closed-back NightHawk

    I picked them up with under 50hrs secondhand in Australia. Addicted to Audio has them here but they are going for the full $980aud which doesn't seem quite right... I switched to the suede pads which are beautiful but they don't seem to seal on my head properly which means that unless I...

    AudioQuest NightOwl - A closed-back NightHawk

    I just received a pair of owls and I have to say they are everything and more of what I hoped they would be. They have a smooth clear sound with plenty of detail. The treble does take a bit of a back seat but it isn't muffled or muted, the detail is there, just not at the front of the mix. I...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    Thanks @Lurk650 for the heads up on the Shure pads. I had a set kicking around and have put them on, I am loving them. The best way I can describe the change to me is that it feels like a layer of warm reverb has been taken away which opens up the sound beautifully.

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    I actually got them second hand so I think they were reasonably settled already, however after spending a fair bit of time with my Sennheiser hd250's with modded felt which are quite bright I needed time to adapt :-) They are beautiful and sound wonderful... The only thing I don't love at the...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    I got a pair of 99s the other day. It took a week for me to settle into the sound but I am loving them now that I have!

    Do you have the shures on the 99s at the moment? Do you fit them over the whole cup or tuck it in?

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    What is the battery life like on the syllable? Is it 8-10hrs including case recharges or per recharge?

    Sennheiser HD250 Linear Impressions Micro-Thread

    Well, I have been thoroughly enjoying these. They make it hard to find time to listen to the srh1520's, hd580's or hd650's. It is a really great can to listen to either picking out details or just letting the music flow, a pretty rare double in my experience. Straight out of the nano black...

    I'd be keen, I haven't got a huge current stable but the senns have always been on my wish list. I am Sydney based as well
