    RAZ's TOTL review and rambles thread

    Sorry for bring up the "old"er post but hey I just got my Aurum a week ago (not easy to get a pair) and it was like YES after all these years trying and living with the supposedly best iems out there FINALLY near-perfection is achieved with the Aurum. Trebles are a pain in IEM design obviously -...

    Craft Ears Reviews/Impressions Thread

    Kr5 is not bad but I think the overall quality and technicalities fall behind the Aurum a fair bit, despite the higher price. BUT it may be a good option for those who want them as their ONLY pair with a greatly diverse music taste. It's a more "conventional" signature compared to the Aurum...

    Craft Ears Reviews/Impressions Thread

    The Aurum must be the best kept secret around.............of all the Estat IEMs popping up every now and then these few years the Aurum seems like the only one that had done it right............a 30 mins trial is enough to convince me to order a pair, likely to dethrone my Z1R as the best...

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

    Well said, that's why the best sounding TWS are so far those designed with a dedicated air chamber for physical tuning as well as (in some cases) a metal driver enclosure - HA-FW1000t, AKG, Final siblings etc. I'd say they are acoustics-focused in their design rather then purely relying on DSP...

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

    Didn't do it on purpose but I have subconsciously listed them out in my sig in the order of my preference already lol So to me, purely on sound 1. Victor HA-FW1000t >>> 2. AKG N400 >= 3. Final X Evangelion >> 4. Fokus Pro >>>>>>>>>>>>> 5. Fender Tour All of the connects perfectly (except...

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

    Haven't tried the gf10 but lots of other stuff are sonically better than the fokus pro. They are ranked 4th in my humble arsenal of TWS in respect of sound quality. Not that I can't stand them though, have been keeping them in my rotation for a while now, but they suffer from the usual TWS...

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

    After more than a year since I first tried it out I finally managed to get hold of a pair of the very elusive AKG N400.............and right out of the box PURELY ON SOUND it had already usurped the Fokus Pro to become my 2nd best sound pair. New toy syndrome? hmmmm maybe but it is still...

    I have all that but what I was referring to is the newest generation Spiral dot pro that comes with the FW1000t, suits them best

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

    I'd say they don't need any app, but they'd really shine with both K2 and ANC both left on. They are the only pair of TWS that sounds somewhere near what I could call "balanced", with real solid mids and without boomy mid-bass and peaky mid-highs, together with impressive detailing. They are...

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

    Of cos YMMV...........but totally disagree on the JVC/Victor, the fit is admittedly not the most secure due to the larger size of the unit but it is simply the best sounding of the bunch by a vast margin...........I seriously suspect it is the only offering out there that actually looks into how...

    IMHO the FW1000t sound a fair bit better than the XM4, YMMV but no harm trying that out I guess.

    It looks like Samsung/AKG intentionally suppress the visibility of the N400 to make way for the Galaxy Buds Pro and siblings, which are selling like mad everywhere and becoming a must-have for non-headfiers.

    Campfire Audio - Saber

    Very well said, especially that last paragraph. I'd add that I have (guess we all have) iems that aim at the best of fidelity. But there are sonic presentations outside of that realm that sounds great to different people or with different genres with a sculpted response. I think Campfire is...

    Campfire Audio - Saber

    Finally got my hands on a pair - a short trial let me understand why the opinions r so divided but then convinced me to get mine. Before I put up with a review of some sorts, I’d just say that just like many other CA offerings, if u wanna get the potential out of them: USE THE CA FOAM TIPS...

    Sony announces the "Just ear" brand of custom IEMs

    The special ear molds have nothing to do with the body material. So the answer is yes they are still required.
