    Sony WF-1000XM4 Impressions Thread

    I got these around a week ago and like them so far. The only wireless earphones I had previously were the Samsung galaxy buds+ and it looks like they will serve different purposes. I'll use the Samsung for the gym and office/commuting uses will be with the Sony. All my previous wireless...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I keep looking for alternatives at under $500 as the bottom of the front screen not being used does annoy me a bit. I can't find anything with the UI and long battery as most daps last somewhere between 8-12 hours. Sony daps have been the only one where I don't need to worry about battery life...

    FLAC downloads for Asian Music?

    Hi, I couldn't really find a good option so asking here. Are there are websites where I can purchase asian music in lossless format? More specifically kpop and cpop type of artists is what I am looking for. I do see artists on 7digital or similar websites however it's typically an album or two...

    CustomArt FIBAE Impressions Thread

    I imagine we should be getting some sound impressions soon from those who purchased during the preorder stage. I got my universals in the mail today and I purchased mine a few days before the pre-order price ended. I got mine completely in black and I wish I got a logo or at least a better...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    I do enjoy the FH5 a lot however some people have had issues with the shorter nozzle. I do recall that Fiio released a longer nozzle FH5 so I assume this is no longer an issue. I don't listen to any of those genres however I assume an elevated bass response is vital. The FH5 definitely has more...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    I recently picked up the Andromeda in a local deal. I owned them around a year ago and regretted it ever since. I'll be pairing it with a Sony ZX300A using the balanced output. I've been using the Fiio FH5 so it's a much different sound signature than what I've been accustomed to lately. I've...

    Forza AudioWorks Impressions Thread

    What's the typical return time from website order to something getting shipped? I ordered an iem that should come in the next 4-6 weeks and a quicker or similar return time would be perfect. The website also shows the number in stock and that number changes and I change the termination, etc. Is...

    You could do what I'm doing. I will be getting universal's and if the fit isn't good I will go with custom tips.

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

    I have the Jabra 65T Active and unfortunately I will be returning it. The connection isn't good enough as the music keeps cutting in and out. This is with my Samsung Galaxy S8+ phone and my Sony ZX300A. My Bose soundsport wireless has a solid bluetooth connection so not sure why so many...

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

    I bought the Jabra 65T active today. It's on sale at Amazon (as well as the Jabra website) and depending on your credit card you may get a discount as well (I got $15 off) so at that price, it was too good to pass up. There's a refurb on ebay for the same price however I do get a longer warranty...

    CustomArt FIBAE Impressions Thread

    I was definitely expecting a higher price tag and a shorter introductory price period after all the posts by those who had the review unit. The posts makes the signature would be similar to an se846 type signature except with more treble? I don't need massive amounts of bass so the fact that...

    FiiO FH5 - Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors || Knowles Balanced Armature Drivers

    I have the stock cable as well as the 4.4mm balanced cable by Fiio. I have no issues using either during my commute. There are lighter cables but I wouldn't notice unless I had the lighter cable to compare with. I have an ALO Audio balanced cable on another mmcx earphone and it is much lighter...

    CustomArt FIBAE Impressions Thread

    Both. You would need to mention that you want universal when you order them. I've asked the same question in the past and it isn't that clear. A universal option in the ordering process would be a better process than adding a note.

    The discovery thread!

    I'm not at the point where I can declare one better than the other yet as I'm still looking for some better tips (it isn't obvious at this point which could be a good thing depending on your perspective). I'll purchase some of the more popular options and see where I go from there. My...
