    Aussie & NZ Head-Fiers Corner

    Geez, gone for half a year and this is what I come back to... $6k DAPs and $4k IEMs...   Glad I got out of the portable section.    I remember a time where $10k AUD would get you a decent SR-009 rig, compare that to the AK380 + Layla.    I'm willing to bet my HD800 rig picks it apart and...

    Aussie & NZ Head-Fiers Corner

    Couldn't stay away forever right? You know you want them h20, one day you'll be sick of your IEMs and decide to move to HD800s :wink:

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Brainwavz S3'

    Brainwavz S3 Review First I’d like to thank Pandora from Brainwavz for sending me a review sample of the S3. By now, I’m sure that members of the Head-Fi community will be quite familiar with Brainwavz. They have really established themselves and are on the way to becoming one of the major...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Brainwavz HM2'

    Brainwavz HM2 Review   Brainwavz is a brand that I have had quite a lot of experience with, having reviewed quite a few of their products. When they came out with the HM2, I was rather intrigued and curious as to what they could do with a budget headphone for just a mere $50. With many...

    Echobox Finder X1 Titanium Earphones Tour (Australia + NZ)

    So I've just received a pair of X1s from Gilly down at Echobox and I'm sending them out on an Australian and New Zealand tour. I haven't had much time with them yet, but they sound like they are very crisp and slightly bright IEMs. Quite an interesting earphone, I've never really heard anything...

    Watches - another passion of ours, it your pics!

    Quite the decision between this and a Rolex Sea Dweller, but I didn't want to go too mainstream. Rolex seems too common nowadays...

    Need Help on < $1000 Headphone EDM/ Movies (Needs Bass)

    If he wants bass, the LCD-2 might be worth a look. Honestly, I find them very overprice though.

    Reviewers wanted - Sound Blaster products   Here is my review of the Roar 2. 
  16. Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Portable NFC Bluetooth Speaker with aptX/AAC (Black)

    Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Portable NFC Bluetooth Speaker with aptX/AAC (Black)

    SOUND BLASTER ROAR 2 Smaller. Lighter. Sexier. All of the Classic Sound Blaster Roar’s killer audio signature in an even more compact size. Pushing the boundaries of speaker miniaturization even further, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 is 20%* more compact than the Classic Sound Blaster Roar, while...

    In car USB, better SQ if upgrade from IPOD to ????

    There won't be any discernible difference, and if there is any difference, you probably won't be able to hear it over the car noise.

    New iBasso Portable Amp/DAC: iBasso D14 "Bushmaster"

    I don't think any DAP in the same price point can compete with the D14 right now, you need to factor in the extra cost that goes into a DAP.    The AK100 MKII is not as good as the D14, it isn't quite as good as the DX90, and the D14 is better than the DX90, so the D14 is a pretty big step up...
