    Bose QC35 Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones

    Hi, Since you say this would be for use at home, I would recommend listening to these before buying, and compare to some closed cans and maybe IEMs (if you are comfortable with those) in the price range. ANC can be great for flights, commute, etc, but it is a compromise for most people on here...

    Reply to review by 'yubacore' on item 'Sennheiser MOMENTUM In-Ear'

    Hi raymartin. I tried with: Mojo, mbp15 (2015), iPad air 2, iPhone 6 plus, Sony z5 compact. All resulted in sub-par, veiled mids.

    Review by 'Yubacore' on item 'Sennheiser MOMENTUM In-Ear'

    I picked up these for my wife. I thought that since she is more of an average listener (not too concerned with audio), the V-shaped sound might be acceptable or even preferred. I gave them a listen myself, naturally, and they are nothing short of terrible as far as I'm concerned. I can not...

    Ultimate Ears UE Pro Reference Remastered! (UERR)

    @nbarbard36 Great writeup, thanks.   I'm getting a high-end in-ears setup next year, and this is way up there on my list. I can't believe these aren't getting more attention. Is it because they don't have 14 drivers? This is the new version of the legendary UERM, which still is a point of...

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    Yeah I'm guessing since this is groundbreaking tech that noone else is touching just yet (as far as we know), Shure will stick to this price point for now. The only thing that could get the price down would be very slow sales. Something tells me that's not going to be a problem here.

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

      I gather from reviews and what I hear that the Hugo plays well with the A12 in terms of detail, soundstage and imaging. I've also seen the DX100 mentioned as a good match. I don't know about "general view" though - maybe it's too soon?   Except for these observations the Mojo seems near...

    1964 Ears Adel IEMs

        Sure, but this only mentions that volume was set lower on the source to reach their preferred listening level (as far as I can tell, I read it pretty fast), something I've read in several comments. I'd argue that "less juice" from the source producing more volume in the ADEL doesn't really...

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

      Ok. Have you tried Tidal's lossless test? I'm sure you can hear the difference if you have decent gear (I'm guessing you have if you're considering the kse1500!) and turn up the volume a bit.             Ok, but for people who want to use the amp/dacs HD audio capacity, apple makes...

    Ultimate Ears UE Pro Reference Remastered! (UERR)

    Kudos to UE for not increasing the price. They could easily have kept the UERM in their lineup, and hyped this new version to about $1700.     Now, what caught my eye... how much, hypotetically, would one of those studio monitors set you back? :D

    Airist Audio Heron 5 Loaner Program (and Black Friday Sale!)

    To Airist audio:   Do you have more specifications on this new amp? The site is nice, but needs more info!   Also, tell that girl it's not that the earcups need adjusting, the problem is she connected her LCD-3s into low gain :-)

    1964 Ears Adel IEMs

      Ok this is interesting because consensus on the Mojo thread is that it sounds very good with capable IEMs, which would lead one to think that it should shine with the flagship A12 and come out ahead of those DAPs (The mojo thread is full of pictures with kilobuck daps used...

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    Wait, last I heard, the Hi-Fi DAC only works with the LG music app...   What's the latest on this? Working with Tidal? What else?
