  1. Dunu DM-480

    4.00 star(s)
    Introduction. Dunu approached me and offered me a chance to review their new DM-480, a dual 8mm dynamic in-ear with a removable cable. They retail for around 63 euro's and come in two colours. It's been a while since I reviewed some gear, so this was a nice opportunity to return to the game. Disclamer: Dunu offered me these IEMs without any charge, however all opinions are my own.

  2. UMIDIGI BTA9 Sports IEM

    Introduction:   After my UMI-BTA8 review, UMI offered me a chance to review the UMI-BTA9. While I found the BTA8 to have a nice fit and finish, the sound was lacking on certain points. I’m curious how the UMI-BTA9 competes against its sibling. I like to thank UMI  for providing me with a sample. The UMI-BTA9 is available from different resellers for around $23. I got mine from amazon: DE: http://amzn.to/2hQAs8U US: http://amzn.to/2h6jhkA       Disclosure: I received the UMI-BTA9 free of charge. Nonetheless the following opinion is a...

    Introduction:   A short while ago, UMI approached me and offered me the chance to try out the UMI-BTA8 Bluetooth Runner IEMS. Since the Christmas feast is approaching, going out for an occasional run might not be such a bad idea to stay in shape. These IEMs might be the push I need to defy the cold December rain wind and snow… Who am I kidding? I’m going to test these out in a warm and comfortable gym.  I like to thank UMI  for generously providing me with a sample. The UMI-BTA8 is available from different resellers for around $28. I got mine from...

  6. Zorloo ZuperDAC

    4.50 star(s)
    Zorloo Zuperdac vs Audioquest Dragonfly Black   The battle of the budget USB DACs       TL;DR; Both are excellent and sound quite similar. The Dragonfly Black is a bit warmer and intimate, while the Zuperdac keeps things neutral and wide with a bit more detail and layering. Zuperdac wins on sheer audio quality, the Dragonfly Black is a better smartphone companion.   Specifications:                                   Zorloo Zuperdac                       Audioquest Dragonfly Black   - Resolution               Up to 24-bit / 192...
  7. Vivo XE800

    5.00 star(s)
    Introduction. Some time ago, bhazard reviewed the Vivo XE800 and they’ve since been on my radar. Word on the street is that the XE800 uses the same driver as the Vsonic Gr07, which costs north of $100. When I heard the XE800 became available for under $30 I ordered them immediately. After falling into the fake Xiaomi Piston 2 trap, I didn’t get my hopes up too much since the price could be too good to be true. To this day, I cannot guarantee these are real since I’ve never owned the XE800 before, but these sound fantastic so I thought they deserved...
  8. Intopic Jazz i57 IEM

    4.00 star(s)
    From the Discoverythread:   Yesterday I went headphone shopping in Taiwan again.  Because every headphone is just hanging there to demo, I listened to the ones I didn't hear before. I've shortly listened to around 30 pairs in these past weeks. The majority of the cheap ones were bass booming crap. Until I stumbled upon the "Intopic Jazz i57" for 450 NTD (12 euro). I was just amazed, the sound quality of these thing were nothing like the other crap that I've heard. So I bought them and wanted to share them with you (as this is the discovery...
