    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Echobox Audio Finder X1'

    Echobox Finder X1 Review Echobox is not a brand that I am familiar with and this is because they are a very new entry into the portable audio market. According to Echobox, they are “a company founded and run by music-lovers and audio geeks. We’ve been watching the personal audio industry for...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Dunu TITAN 5'

    Dunu Titan 5 Review First of all, I’d like to thank Dunu for sending me a sample of the Titan 5 to review. I’m quite familiar with Dunu as a brand and I’ve heard many of their higher end offerings including the DN-1000 and DN-2000. A while ago, I reviewed the Titan 1, which I found to be an IEM...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'iBasso Audio DX80 High Resolution Audio Player '

    iBasso DX80 Review iBasso is a brand that I am now very familiar with, having reviewed quite a number of their products. They have now established themselves as one of the leading brands for more budget minded portable audio devices and it is clear to see why. The DX80 is iBasso’s latest foray...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'RHA T20'

    First of all I’d like to thank RHA for sending out a unit of the T20 for us to do an Australasian tour. RHA is a company that I am quite familiar with now, having tried their other two previous flagship IEMs. The MA750 was the first RHA product I tried and I was very impressed by the build and...

    The synergy between the P5 and the SE846 was good, no hissing and it added more energy to the SE846.    I had a listen to a E12DIY a while ago, but I didn't get the opportunity to compare them side by side. I wasn't really that impressed by the E12, and from memory, the P5 is no comparison.

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Brainwavz Kidwavz KV100 Childrens Bluetooth Volume Limited Headphones'

    First of all, I’d like to thank Brainwavz for sending me a pair of the Kidwavz for me to try out. The KV100 is Brainwavz new Bluetooth headphone and it oriented towards children and not the mainstream market. The KV100 is also called “Kidwavz”, which I suppose makes it pretty clear who the...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'iBasso Audio P5 Portable Amplifier'

    The P5 is iBasso’s latest release, and coming in at the price of $529, it is iBasso’s current flagship portable amp. With their DX50 and 90 models, they really managed to gain a lot of fans with their clean and detailed signature and they have grown into one of the established names in portable...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Portable NFC Bluetooth Speaker with aptX/AAC (Black)'

    Before I start this review, I would like to thank Creative for sending out a Roar 2 unit to me. I’m quite surprised myself that prior to this, I had never heard a Creative product before, despite them having some interesting products. I chose the Roar 2 to review because I wanted to take a break...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'iBasso Audio D14 "Bushmaster"'

    First of all, I’d like to thank iBasso for sending me a review sample of the D14. iBasso have really established themselves as a big name in portable audio devices and after reviewing both their DX50 and DX90 models as well as the budget minded D-Zero MKII, I was really looking forward to having...

    Reply to review by 'lin0003' on item 'HiFiMAN RE-400'

    They sound good for $100, but they are easily outclassed by the Titan 1. I actually didn't have those build quality issues with mine though, maybe you can send them in for warranty?

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Brainwavz BLU-100 Bluetooth IEMs'

    First of all I’d like to thank Audrey from Brainwavz for sending me a pair of the BLU-100 for me to review. To be honest, before I was notified of the BLU I hadn’t even heard of it before. It is indeed a new addition to the Brainwavz lineup and it is very much in an entry level price point...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Cozoy Astrapi'

    First of all I would like to thank H20Fidelity for including me on the Cozoy tour, very much appreciated. When I first saw this, I thought that it looked very impressive indeed – small and slick looking. Smaller than many USBs and something that you can easily just clip onto your pocket. Very...

    I prefer these y a long margin if you are talking about the sound. The Heaven V should be better given it is a higher model in the lineup, but I have not heard it unfortunately.

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'BRAINWAVZ HM5 Studio Monitor Headphones'

    Brainwavz HM5 Review     The Brainwavz HM5 is a headphone that I have been very intrigued about for quite a long time. I have heard the FA-003 and some other headphones that use the same driver many times and always felt like it had something that really made it stand out. There was always...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'iBasso Audio D-Zero MK2'

    iBasso D-Zero MKII Review   iBasso is a very common name out there on the forums now, with their DX50 and DX90 gaining a rather large user base. I have reviewed both the DX50 and DX90 and I found both of them to be very good for their price. The DX50 and DX90 were better than their competitors...

    Just came across this review and I'm not going to attack the author nor defend the Pistons, which is something I have not heard. I simply encourage other people who come across this review to read some other reviews to make their own decision as to just what this review is. In my mind what this...

    Thought that I would post this here as well because peple who search for this should be able to find this easier. Has been reposted from the SE846 thread.   Today I got the chance to listen to some of my friend's gear and compare them to the SE846/DX90. I was particularly curious about the...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Brainwavz AP001 Portable Headphone Amplifier'

    The Brainwavz AP001 is something that I rather unique in today’s market. Whereas we have plenty of portable amplifiers, I don’t think that I have seen on that is quite as unique as the AP001. To be perfectly honest, a week or so ago I had never even heard of the AP001 until Brainwavz offered to...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Brainwavz R3 Dual Dynamic Driver Earphones'

    First I’d like to thank Audrey from Brainwavz for sending me the R3 to review. Brainwavz was one of the very first companies I encountered when I joined Head-Fi; their legendary B3 was one of my first higher end IEMs. Since then, I have heard many other Brainwavz offerings and I have enjoyed...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'Brainwavz HM9 Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Headphones'

    First I would like to thank Salsera for sending me a HM9 for me to review. Having recently reviewed the rather interesting S5, I felt like I had a general idea which direction Brainwavz were heading in and upon listening to the HM9, I was met with exactly what I was expecting, but it did exceed...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'MEElectronics M9-BK Hi-Fi Sound-Isolating Earphones (Black)'

    There aren't many sub-$10 IEMs in the market. With all the recent budget IEMs being priced at around $50, it leaves very little choice for people who are looking for a very cheap IEM. As far as I know, the main choice for many people is the Monoprice 8320 and having heard them, I certainly see...

    Review by 'lin0003' on item 'iBasso DX90 Portable Digital Audio Player'

    I’m sure that if you are on Head-Fi once in a while and you are interested in portable audio, you will at least have heard of iBasso. The DX90 is iBasso’s third DAP, the first two being the DX100 and the DX50. The DX50 turned out to be a huge success right off the bat and the first few batches...

    Great review but the battery life is slightly over 8 hours for me.
