  1. Empire Ears ODIN

    5.00 star(s)
    Empire Ears Odin Review Bass The Odin has good bass impact. The speed of the bass is average. The texture is great and so is the sub-bass with good extension. Except for the speed, the bass is superb. That’s all that needs to be said. It is honestly very good. Midrange Midrange is pretty clean with an extremely neutral tone. There is a very slight nasally quality to the midrange. I want to emphasize that the Odin is not a nasal sounding IEM but the midrange has that very slight nasal tone to it which is literally the only fault I could find...
  2. FiR Audio M5

    Preface From what I have heard, there have been many silent revisions of the Fir M5 and I don't know what revision I heard. This is probably the reason for vastly varying reviews of this IEM. I can only comment on the revision I heard. Bass Let's start with the bass. In my opinion, this is the best part of this IEM. The bass has good impact and texture. The sub-bass is thunderous.

  4. Burson Audio Cable+

    5.00 star(s)
    Introduction Burson has always been known in the audio world for their revolutionary op-amps and robust solid-state amps. My first experience with Burson dates back to the time when I was just started out in the audiophile world. I had a modest soundcard back then and after some op-amp rolling, I settled on their V5 series. In my opinion, they are some of the best performing op-amps in the world. When they announced the Cable+, it piqued my interest and now finally I am able to review one. The Burson Cable+ is an active wire which serves as a...
