    Sennheiser CX 495

    I own a pair of CX 495 IEM's, along with a variety of other earbuds and IEM's, and I can say that the CX 495 have earned a solid place among other headphones costing many times their price.  I got my CX 495's from a Newegg sale for $25, including shipping.  Their clarity, spectral balance...

    MAD Ear+ Purist HD thread.

    I don't have any experience with the Westones, so I have no observations to offer pertaining to them.  What I can say, though, about the Grado HF2 and the Senn HD600 is that the MAD Ear+ HD drives them both really well.  And here's the nice bonus - they are both driven really well using the same...

    So what's the word on the new Ultrasone HFI-780????

    I read about the ALO-modified HFI-780, and it looked like a good value.  But, I wanted to know if I basically liked the sound of the unmodded HFI-780 first.  So, I bought a stock HFI-780 from ALO, and used them for 2-3 weeks.  I found that I really liked their sound, including a prominent, but...

    FiiO E9 Review

    I have found a really good-sounding and synergistic rig with the Fiio-E9: a Nationite S-Flo2 source, Whiplash Audio TWAg mini-to-mini cable, Fiio-E9, Brainwavz Alpha IEMs.  What I'm particularly enjoying about this rig is the plummy yumminess of the bass, the full, plush, lushness of the mids...

    New entry-level headphones? (Brainwavz M2 / M1?)

    I'm using the Brainwavz M2 with a HiSoundAudio Studio (the model name) DAP, and a mini-rig with a Nationite S-Flo2 and RSA P-51 Mustang hooked together with a Zynsonix VRay Prime mini-to-mini IC.  It took about 40 hours of use before the M2 were sounding their best - and they are sounding quite...

    Hisoundaudio Rocoo

    A few days ago, a Rocoo-b arrived in the mail, shipped from Whiplash Audio. It's had about 12 hours of use at this point, and I'm using it with a recently-purchased set of Sennheiser Mx980 earbuds. It's a really great combination, with the Rocoo-b sounding very similar to my AMP3. What's...

    STUDIO I Evaluation!!!

    With HiFlight's recently posted impression that he prefers the SQ of the Rocoo to that of the AMP3, the Rocoo is shaping up to be a more exciting product than I was originally expecting.

    So what's the word on the new Ultrasone HFI-780????

    Just to report in, I bought from ALO a pair of the Ed 9 pads for use on my ALO-780 phones. I really DO love the sound using these phones, and they are in my top three, most-used phones rotation, and the stiffness and the pleather cover of the stock pads sometimes distracts, with low-to-moderate...
