    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    So I have this thing for years and last I upgraded from v1 to v2 years ago. Was there a further upgrade that I missed? I want more bass.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Sony WF4 vs B&W PI7 vs B&O latest (forgot its name), which one takes the cake in terms of sound quality, regardless of price?

    Sony WF-1000XM4 Impressions Thread

    Hi guys I have been using Airpod Pro much more than I should (with several pairs of 1K+ or even 2K+ wired earbuds sitting silently in the drawer). Is there any final word for XM4 vs PI7? I am listening wirelessly so much, I may as well get a better pair.

    Current high end IEM that sounds closest to Westone ES5?

    I lost one side of my ES5 a few years back, and since then I have bought numerous other TOTL customs and universals, including the K10, Layla, Legend X and Tia Fourte, but none of them seems to be able to give me the smooth and lush mids and good bass - the almost LCD-2 like sound signature, if...

    JH Audio Layla vs. JH Audio Roxanne

    I feel that Layla is a bit unrefined or even coarse when compared with other IEMs at this price point.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Actually Shadowbringers is the best FF in years - the highest scored FF in 13 years and IMO one of the top 3 of all time. If you don't like MMO just play the story and then un-sub.

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    Certainly more airy - that’s a fact. Also worked for SP1000. Haven’t tried this with SP2000 yet though.

    CanJam Shanghai 2019 Impressions Thread (November 9-10, 2019)

    Since it's in Shanghai I would expect some serious flaunting of wealth in the show - any exhibition of exorbitant setup?

    Does it have the creaminess of LCD-2?

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I have used the Louis Vuitton Horizon bluetooth earphones for almost six months now. It may not be the Tia Fourte Noir or the Legend X in terms of sound, but it is among the best of the bunch of wireless earphones that I have heard, sound wise and aesthetics-wise (it seems that everyone with a...

    I have a Tumi which is practical for business trips but too bulky for ordinary use. That said if I get a Hermes I doubt if I would use it everyday. If I get the IEM I would certainly listen to it - but probably not a lot coz I already have a ton of them and these flagships just keep coming out...

    SP1000 vs SP2000 - expectations?

    Obviously we still near the reviews for SP2000 to come in, but what would you think the improvements may be? Even better separation / analytical power or a more balanced / warm approach like AK380? Or do you think it is all gimmicks and the difference would be so minute that it is a matter of...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    How do I pick up a phone call on bluetooth with the Louis Vuitton/MW-07?

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    If I turn off bluetooth on my iPhone, would the MW07 shut down as well or would it continue to drain battery? I don't want to carry the case around all the time.

    JH Audio Layla Impressions Thread

    I have the Layla, the Tia Fourte but then still bought the LV... Pretty good for just strolling around. On a more sedentary setting (on a plane for example), I would use the better ones. I think that is mainly because I won't carry around the SP1000 in any other setting. Tia Fourte is still the...

    JH Audio Layla Impressions Thread

    In terms of instrument separation and layering, my Tia Fourte stands head and shoulders above the Layla. There have been quite a few IEMs at or even surpassed this ridiculous price range ever since the Layla came out. I haven't tried all of them but the Layla is still quite enjoyable when...
