    Everything's an aesthetic choice. But this distressed thing is quite funny - it's like hipster burger joints where they've paid millions to have bare walls and exposed pipes and wiring on show. We're approaching the end of things, I feel, we can't actually wait for new stuff to wear out...

    Too funny. I'm gonna start a company called Irony Audio.

    For that price, I'd want them to print their name on it properly

    Sooo glad I got my Duos while they were still 15% off for Black Friday 'month' @ Hifiheadphones - seems they've gone back to the £1k standard price now, just days later. Happy face for me, sad face for those who missed the window.

    Just done a quick test and the Duo manage a good 80% of the EM5s stage, I'd say. But the crucial thing is that the EM5 are perhaps a touch too open, if there can be such a thing? Aside from the instability of the fit with the Fiios (like the Dodo becoming extinct because it couldn't fly the f*ck...

    @Rockwell75 - what a brilliant summation of the Duos. Thanks for being you. Mine arrived yesterday and I have been comparing them to my Solaris (2020). In the first blush of new toy honeymooning, with all the caveats that carries, I will say that for my use-case (home use only now that I have...

    You raise an interesting point, which will no doubt show my hilarious lack of any scientific understanding of how these things work : if you are going to use 12 x BA drivers in your IEM (or any number or combination of BA and DD for that matter), why not just create one single mothership of a...

    I am intrigued, but not $1600 intrigued. I love my Solaris 2020 and don't feel its missing in the low mids. Isnt a slight reduction in that frequency range what was tweaked between the OG and 2020 in the first place, or am I misremembering?

    Yep - Solaris 2020 with gold paint job. Given I much prefer the stealth black of my 2020 over the OG, colour me yawn. But there are no doubt a number of insane bling lovers out there who think shiny shiny preciousssss is desirable.
