Head Gear Reviews by Zombie_X
  1. beyerdynamic Amiron home

    5.00 star(s)
    Having been listening to the Amiron Home for 10 hours today, it's safe to say these are easily the T90 we always wanted. They are smooth, articulate, punchy, and warm. If you've heard the T90, these are nothing like it. These fix the terrible treble on the T90's, add some midrange warmth, and give the bass more body.   The treble is so damn smooth you'd think you're drinking the finest craft beer. It's just as smooth as the HD650, but far more articulate and detailed. Extension and air is top notch along with exceptional detail. There is absolutely...
  2. Koss Pro4S Full Size Studio Headphones, Black with Silver Trim

    5.00 star(s)
    I just got these in from Koss today and initial impressions are incredibly positive. These are Koss' second best headphone available that I have tried (DJ100, DJ200, PRO4AA, PRO4AAT, PRO4AAAT, and MV1). The overall tone of these is warm, detailed, and bassy. The tone is in ways similar to the DJ100, with them being bassy and warm, but these are more detailed and airy. They are more like a DT990 junior, but don't have the dip in the mids and have a smaller soundstage. They honestly stomp the DJ100 into the ground from my testing.   ...
  3. SPL Auditor

            Hi all, Zombie-X here again with another review for the good boys and girls of Head-Fi.org. Up today I have the SPL Auditor, one of SPL's own high end headphone amplifiers that is intended for studio use. I've had this amp for about 6 months and it's quite impressive. Truly it's sound is high end. But you want to more, don't you?   I would love to give a big thanks to both Robert at Aphrodite Cu29, and all the employee's at Front End Audio for supplying the SPL Auditor as well as information and guidance. These guys are...
  4. Violectric HPA V200

    4.00 star(s)
            Hi all, Zombie-X here again with another review for the good boys and girls of Head-Fi.org. Up today I have the Violectric HPA V200, which is developed and manufactured by Lake-People for their subdivision named "Violectric". I have had ample time to listen and compare this amp with my other amps and it's quite a nice amp, but how does it compare to other amps in the price range?   I would love to give a big thanks to both Robert at Aphrodite Cu29 for supplying me with the Violectric V200 as well as...
  5. Violectric DAC V800

    4.50 star(s)
              Hi all, Zombie-X here again with another review for the good boys and girls of Head-Fi.org. I've been playing around with this DAC for about a month now and I figured it's time to give you all a nice, straight to the point review of it.    I would like to take the time before this review to give a shout out to Robert at Aphrodite Cu29 for supplying this DAC for review. He's a good guy in the crazy audio world and knows his stuff. I was swayed to get the DAC, not by his words of praise (well maybe a little), but rather by...
  6. Audioengine A2B Powered Multimedia Speaker System - Black Finish

    5.00 star(s)
    Hi guys,   Now I am not a speaker guy by any means and mostly have crappy stock speakers around here (although I just upgraded my surround speakers for my NAD T747 to some Harmon Kardon 30BQ's) and this will be my first attempt at reviewing speakers.   SET-UP: Source: PC via PopPulse SPDIF II (foobar2000 via ASAIO), Marantz VC6001 DAC: Music Hall DAC25.2 (NOS Mullard E881CC, upgraded OPA's, upgraded caps) AMP: Audio-GD ROC (Via XLR from the DAC > ROC > RCA Pre-amp output)     INTRODUCTION: To start off I was using some 8 year...
  7. Beyer Dynamic DT 880 Premium 600 OHM Headphones

    4.50 star(s)
    Hi all, Zombie_X here with another review! This won't be as in depth as the T1's review but I will give you all the needed info.  The Beyerdynamic DT880 sound can be classified as being treble oriented with slightly recessed mids (will get tot hat later) and having slow or muddy bass (will get to that as well).  ___________________________________________________________  ___________________________________________________________  GEAR USED:  - Source: PC via Pop-Pulse SPDIF-II (to Optical), Marantz VC6001 CD Player  - Amp: Woo Audio...
  8. beyerdynamic Tesla T1

    5.00 star(s)
    I won't get too technical or get too in depth int his review. I will just state what I believe these headphones do and how they sound, just very straight to the point.   The T1 is beyerdynamics' latest entry into full size open dynamic headphones. This model can achieve one Tesla with it's new driver and magnet system. This allows the T1 to be far more efficient and easier to amp than the DT880/600Ohm by quite a bit. This also means your amp won't strain to power them like some amps do with the DT880/600 (and this is from my experience).   ...
