  1. Moondrop Spaceship

    4.00 star(s)
    Moondrop is a respected name in the budget earphones/IEM scene. Their releases typically stand out in their respective price brackets. I test their Spaceship and share my findings below. Packaging/Accessories: Unique and interesting for the price. The IEMs came in a colorful plastic box, depicting the Earth from outer space. Inside there are 3 pairs of silicone tips, a fabric pouch, an instruction manual, and an ‘Introduction’ card. The plastic material is thin and brittle, it got cracked during shipment. Build Quality: Nice, smooth finish on the...

    This is taken from my personal blog: https://willyboy.home.blog/2020/05/19/kb-ear-kb04-in-ear-monitor-review/ This is my first earphone from KB Ear. Following the popularity of their KB06, F1, and Diamond, I got interested in their KB04, which reportedly offers some refinements over its predecessors. Let’s find out! Packaging/Accessories: The KB04 arrives in a simple but sturdy and attractive packaging. Black and green dominate the color scheme, with white lettering. Mine is the non-mic version. Six pairs of tips and one shirt clip were supplied...
  3. Edifier H185 Headphones Hi-Fi Classic Earbud Style Earphones - Blue

    3.50 star(s)
    Tuning/Sound Signature: Bright, clear, and tight. The sound is mid-centric with good clarity. The single dynamic drivers sound coherent, as expected. It is quite neutral, not overly cold/analytical or warm. I use Hiegi donut foam for this review, not the thin full foam provided in the package. Soundstage: Soundstage on the H185 is about average for a pair of earbuds. Vocals are centered but the stage doesn’t extend beyond the ears. The stage expands left and right, not so much vertically. ‘80s rock ballads sounds glorious with these, but they don’t...
  4. Burson Audio Playmate

    This is the second Burson product that I get to enjoy and review. I enjoy their V6 Classic and Vivid op amps, and I have high hopes on this one when Carlos from Burson Audio contacted me about reviewing their latest DAC/Pre Amp/Headphone Amp. I appreciate the opportunity to receive a unit in exchange of my honest review. I feel humbled anytime anyone made such offer to me, so big thanks to the Burson Audio team. The unit is safely nestled in a press-fit foam, on either sides were the power supply unit, RCA cables, hex key, and mounting hardware...
  5. Edifier H840 Hi-Fi Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Monitor Headphone - Black

    4.00 star(s)
    In Indonesia where I live, Edifier has a decent following due to the popularity of their H180 and H185 earbuds, and their multimedia speakers. When I found out they have a full-sized headphone for USD25 at the time, I jumped on it. The following is a long-term report and there is a link to mod tutorial that I created. We've heard of headphones that has crappy build quality but sounds great because the manufacturer seemingly put most of the budget in the drivers. Quite the contrary for the H840, in my opinion. It's well built. The plastics used are...
