  1. Shozy Alien+

    5.00 star(s)
    Hi there, I must say that from first hearing of the impending Alien+ some time ago, I was very excited to see what Shozy could come up with. Having owned the original Alien, a fantastically musical and minimalist player that I used on my daily commute, I was like a kid at Christmas. Some time later we have the Alien+ and shortly thereafter I have one in my hand. Firstly, I need to clarify, I gave this unit a 5/5 rating as I believe that the player does exactly as advertised and does it exceedingly well. This does not mean it is not without...
  2. Campfire Audio Andromeda

    5.00 star(s)
    I was recently given the opportunity to review the Campfire Audio Andromeda thanks to the kindness of Ken/ALO/Campfire and D_Marco It is great to be part of a community that allows such experiences, putting such trust in those also interested in this fine, rewarding but infinitely more and more expensive hobby.   Prior to getting my ears around the Andromeda I was also lucky enough to hear the Lyra, Orion and Jupiter from the Campfire line, so I will try to draw some comparisons, however bearing in mind these are from memory.   This review will...
  3. Campfire Audio Jupiter

    4.50 star(s)
    Hey all.   I have recently been fortunate enough to be invited to partake in the Australian sisterhood of Campfire Audio product reviews.  I am humbled and generally stoked to get my hands on some products I would otherwise not be able to afford/listen to in return for my honest opinions.  I have plenty of these so seems like a no brainer to me.   I will be keeping this review in the same format as my Lyra review, in aid of consistency and laziness.   First cab off the rank for me in this tour was the Lyra and I had some mixed thoughts on the...

    Hey all.   I have recently been fortunate enough to be invited to partake in the Australian sisterhood of Campfire Audio product reviews.  I am humbled and generally stoked to get my hands on some products I would otherwise not be able to afford/listen to in return for my honest opinions.  I have plenty of these so seems like a no brainer to me.   First cab off the rank for me in this tour is the Campfire Lyra.  The lyra or lyre was a stringed musical instrument played in Ancient Crete, or so google would have me believe.  While I see no strings...
  5. Noble Audio Savant

    4.50 star(s)
    First things first, I would like to recognise DMarco for organising this tour from Oz.  Of course Brannan and the Wizard must also be recognised.  Both for allowing such tours to take place and of course bringing forth a myriad of amazing iem’s for all tastes.   My name is Scott and I am an audio-holic.  I have long loved music, ever since I was but a wee child, listening to my dad’s vinyl or my very first cassette over and over until it no longer played.  It was JJ Cale for those interested.   Music for me, like most, has pulled me through hard...
  6. RHA T20

    4.00 star(s)
    First things first:   I would like to thank Lin and RHA for the opportunity to test these IEMs and provide my honest opinion of them in return.  It really is great that this community allows this kind of interaction with manufacturers.   Secondly:   We all hear things differently, one of the curses and beauties of this hobby.  There is so much variation in gear, hearing, preference that it truly is a dynamic hobby.  I refer to this again throughout this review but please make sure if you are looking to buy these, that you read as many reviews...
  7. HUM Pervasion - Android DAP

    4.00 star(s)
    Howdy all,   I have been meaning to make some time to write this review and tonight I just so happened to fall upon that time.  My wife told me she wanted some time alone to read some book called 50 shades of something…. What ever that means.  Anyway, it means I get to put some thoughts to keyboard about this great mid-fi priced dap.   I was lucky enough to be a step in on the recent (still ongoing) Australian tour of the HUM Pervasion DAP.  You may or may not have heard of this DAP out of China, there hasn’t been a whole lot of hype about it.  ...
  8. Tralucent Audio Ref 1

    5.00 star(s)
    Hi all,   I will prepare a proper review when I have some time and am not working.   In short however, these are superior to any IEM I have personally used for my tastes. I listen to a vast range of music, but in particular live rock/acoustic/prog rock.   There is nothing like listening to Alice in Chains unplugged or Dream Theater and you can literally close your eyes and believe you are there.   These are nothing but disjointed thoughts at this stage, however as above, I will construct a meaningful review when I have a moment.
  9. Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear Headphone

    3.50 star(s)
    Review to come when i have some time. Bottom line is, if you can pick these up on sale, they are a good buy for what they are.   They are fairly comfortable, have ample bass which sadly lacks a little control.   Overall it is a pleasant enough listen for a portable pair of cans. With some EQ they can sound much better.
  10. Beyerdynamic A200p Portable Mobile DAC Headphone Amp for iPhone and Android Phones, Black/Silver

    4.00 star(s)
    First off a little about me.   I wouldn't say I am an audiophile as such, though a few of my non music loving friends would tend to disagree. I merely love music and cannot stand poor audio.  I know what I like in speakers/headphones. That being said I may steer clear of as many audiophile terms as I can in this review,   Conditions/gear for this review:   A loud office building A loud train on the commute Unique Melody Mentor universal iems Mr Speakers Mad Dog 3.2 An iPad mini retina 128gb iPhone 5s A HTC one m8 A fiio e18 And of...
