    Massdrop x Focal Elex Review & Measurements

    How does the Focal Elex compare with the Hifiman Sundaras? I've heard of quite a few Elex headphones breaking, but it seems to me that the sound quality of the Elex is heavily lauded. Would it be a suitable upgrade or should I save for a more expensive headphone?

    The Fragrant Zither (TFZ) Reviews and Impressions Thread

    I tried the TFZ series 2 from lendmeurears and it was quite decent for the price, warm and laid back, perfect as a gift to your friend. Though the soundstage is a bit cramped and bass lacks definition, it provides a good fit and has palatable mids that don't jump out at you.

    Fiio M11 Pro $600 is coming - Will you Purchase it ?

    Feels like the price jump is too steep for a DAP, compared to the M11. Furthermore, competition just heated up dramatically, will see how this one pans out.

    Hifiman Sundara (HE400i upgraded, around $500)

    Got a pair of Periapt XLR-terminated cables to go along with the Sundara, because the old cable kept gathering grime. Pretty decent, no big sound difference, but feels much sturdier now. I still can't believe the LCD2C was priced so much higher than this...

    EarStudio ES100MK2 is now available

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    Usually for ATH pads I'd swing by their local office and ask them to replace it for me. Should be a fairly reasonable price.

    Moondrop in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I'll check in with my impressions here since I never got around to posting them: Moondrop Spaceship: Sibilant upper mids, whenever there are female vocals, it grates on my ear and makes it feel uncomfortable, a fatal flaw similar to the Advanced Alpha headphones. Bass quality is kind of lacking...

    BEST Sub-100$ BUDGET EARPHONES - Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    The price of the BLONs this November is pretty good, it's a steal at USD26. Too bad the fit is atrocious and blocks almost no noise when you're in the train. Since the fit isn't as snug as other IEMs, the bass quantity is lowered to a level that I appreciate while keeping the mids and highs...

    Shanling M1: An iPod Nano Competitor / DAP || USB DAC || USB Transport || Bluetooth 4.0 + aptX || DSD

    Hmm, Shanling seems to have pulled out the v1.12 update. I think they broke the DAC option on Windows in v1.12, it was detecting the device as a USB drive although DAC was enabled and you'd have to swap modes from USB > DAC in order to use it.
