    Tempotec V1 & V1A

    I have never heard of DST before and it plays DSD256 fine if anyone is interested. Link to try a DST file?

    TRN impressions thread

    I heard the newer ones sound a bit more neutral? I only have early one so mine sounds V shaped.

    You are crazy buying so much stuff. I hate having loads of gear as it's like hoarding and inferior gear never gets used

    Nice one. I hope you like them as I like mine and I like the tuning is a bit different on them.

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I agree with your take on the ZSX and CA16. The ZSX is great for the price but lacks a little refinement and having a BA in the nozzle does not help. They are sidegrades of each other but both very competent.

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    The ZSX has more upper mids than the CA16. The ZSX has more bass than the CA16. Separation and stage is good on both but the CA16 sounds a little more realistic and sounds a little brighter sounding. Not sure of a upgrade but a nice sidegrade.

    AUDIOSENSE in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I hope they reduce the price in time as $500 is expensive and the Mangird Tea looks great for nearly half the price with the same driver count.....

    A good question indeed. I am waiting on a reply if I can get replacements sent to me.

    KB EAR Audio impressions thread

    I tried them with another cable and confirmed it was the earphones. I want to see if they are easy enough to open and then rotate the connector around.

    KB EAR Audio impressions thread

    I will have to see if they can be opened up and a connector can be flipped around. Also as the included cable has built in ear guides makes it unusable with that cable.

    KB EAR Audio impressions thread

    A bit late to the party but I am trying out the Kbear Diamond as I had them sent to my work address but could not collect them for obvious reasons. Really nice presentation and packaging but mine are out of phase which is a shame. If mine are out of phase then wonder how many others out there...

    Just standard shipping so was quite surprised with the fast arrival. They look like the KZ ZST in size and have not checked the cable or other tips yet.
