  1. FiiO X5 3rd gen Premium Hi-Res DAP

    4.50 star(s)
          Introduction: The device was lent to me as part of FiiO's review tour. I was given 10 days with the device to evaluate it and in return give my honest opinion about it. My current equipment is an LH Labs Geek Out V2 as my source, my headphones include a balanced HD650, Sony MA900, M-Audio Q40. I listen to a wide variety of music and generally tend to prefer my sound to be transparent, musical, and detailed.    Build Quality: FiiO absolutely nailed this part. I have never held the previous generations of the X5, however the X5III is built...

    Cayin C5DAC: A Deadly Challenger in the Portable Market                           *Please click on the photos for the highest quality.    About me & Introduction I am a student who is a music enthusiast with a big appreciation for music and audio gear. The genres I listen to consist of, well, everything, apart from blues and country. My main priorities in Audio equipment are transparency, timbre, and musicality. When listening to music, I tend to focus on enjoying it rather than dissecting every single piece of it. I do not like listening to...
  3. SanDisk SDMX22-004G-A57K Sansa Clip Zip 4 GB, Black

    3.00 star(s)
    My reviews are usually long winded and detailed, but in this review im keeping things short as this is not a high-end product by any means.  I have had the Sansa Clip since June of last year, and it has served me well ever since. It is uber-convenient and portable. This thing is small, and i mean really small. I take it with me basically everywhere. It has survived through a lot of sweat and water in the gym or when working out, i also dropped it a couple of times. This little thing has been through a lot of abuse and it can take it. Usually with my...

    Introduction This thread will contain a full review of the Aune T1 Tube DAC/Amp. I'm gonna try to be as objective as i can and make things simple (without sounding boring). First off, I'd like to start by saying that this will be my 1500th post !  So I am now a Supremus. Before i start, let me give you a little background information about me, the music genres i listen to, and what i look for in terms of sound.  I am 17 years olds and have been in the audio game for nearly 2 years now. Over time i have acquired different sets of headphones ranging...
  5. Hifimediy Sabre USB DAC

    4.50 star(s)
    This little DAC really surprised me with its sound quality. I have an Aune T1, and this is about 85-90% as good for a third of the price!  Recommended to anyone just starting this hobby and is looking for better sound than his computer's onboard soundcard. Some improvements i noticed over my laptop's soundcard: -Tighter bass -More forward mids -treble a bit more sparkly -HUGE uprgarde in terms of imaging and soundstage etc   Whenever im not using the Aune t1, this is plugged in. My only complaint is that it feels a bit cheap in the hand, but...
  6. SOL Republic Tracks HD

    I bought these cans 2 years ago and sold them to get the ATH-M50, which then lead me into the audio world. Overall these are good portable headphones with great build quality. The sound, however, is where these are suffer. I liked the idea of picking a custom headband/wires/driver to match your style. The overall sound presentation is very congested and muffled. There is no clarity or detail. The bass, though, is fairly good. Plenty of mid bass and subbass for all the bass-lovers. The midrange is recessed, and so are the highs. Get these if...

  10. JVC Victor Head-band Portable Headphones | HA-S500-B Black (Japanese Import)

    4.50 star(s)
    TL;DR: If you're looking for a good portable with excellent sound, go buy these now. I said now. Why are you still reading this? I said go buy it!   I would like to start by saying that those can usually be found between $30-$70.   I got mine for $40 and payed $15 for shipping. And trust me when i say, this is one of the best $55 i have spent on audio equipment.    Ever since i got these, i never left the house without them. Ever. They are very convenient and portable. I take them with me to the gym or occasionally for jogging, and they do a...
  11. Wireless Stereo Headset

    3.00 star(s)
    Compared to the ATH-AD700, these are a joke. Don't get me wrong, these aren't that bad. But you can find better gaming headphones for 100 bucks. The bass is there, but its barely there (cant hear it nor feel it). I don't listen at high volumes but there's a lot of distortion when you crank the volume up. The surround sound is decent, but not the best. Although i dont care much about stuff like this, but the build quality is absolutely terrible. It feels like im holding a 10 dollar headphone.    What i like about it is that it is comfortable and...
