    SoundMAGIC Vento Speculation/Discussion Thread

    I think the almost mythical HP300 is still a work in progress.   My understanding is that SoundMAGIC are going more the direction of an HP1000 (closed) and HP2000 (open), which are being designed from scratch and featuring SoundMAGIC's new driver technology (as per the Vento P55).   I think...

    Aurisonics Bravo Series - Eva, Kicker, Forte and Harmony In-Ear Headphones

    We've been giving the samples we received of these IEMs a good listen since they arrived and have been rather impressed by the way they sound.  The new Aurisonics range makes complete sense and sound is nicely balanced throughout.  Fans of the massively bass heavy ASG 2.5 will be disappointed...

    Aurisonics ASG-2.5 Review by mark2410

    @mark2410 Nice review!  We're loving your style.   @davidcotton We just checked our pricing and we messed up this end.  We had the wrong RRP set by the distributor.  The ASG 2.5 should have an RRP in the UK of £639.  We've updated it on our site: ...

    SoundMAGIC recently improved the build of the E10 significantly. The earphone body is now held together by mechanical clipping together of the two parts internally (instead of glue) and the cabling has been massively improved with a twisted pair braided cable. The E10 is now super tough!

    HiFiMAN HE-400 - Cans’ Best Friend

    Now we’re all different of course, and so it follows that different sound signatures appeal also. I have noticed that high-end headphones tend to present more mid-range and high frequencies than I would like at the moment. I say ‘at the moment’ as my tastes have changed before and may well...
