    Westone W60 Impressions Thread

    Can't comment on the Noble 6 but I share your thoughts on SE846 vs W60. I owned the SE846 for a few months but eventually sold them since I also found them to be fatiguing and I wasn't able to get a comfortable fit. Briefly listened to the W60 in a store at Charlotte airport and prefer them over...

    Vision Ears and Rhines Custom Monitors (formerly Compact Monitors)

    Had the chance to listen to the VE5’s today. I was using my iPhone6Plus with Tidal app. In short: they sounded incredible. Mid’s were definitely it’s strong point. Vocals were the best I’ve heard from an IEM so far. It felt like the singer was sitting right in front of me. Very addictive...

    Unique Melody Maestro

    Interested in a comparison between Mavericks and Merlin / Ref 1.    I heard it's only available in Japan, is that true?

    REVIEW: Unique Melody Merlin - hybrid dynamic/balanced armature custom IEM

      The SP cable has up to 1% gold. I haven't had the chance to try a pure silver cable so I can't tell you how much and/or if it really makes a difference. For me, the SP cable takes too much away from the low end body and makes it sound thinner than I'd like.    So the next cable that I'm...

    $999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage

    I believe he was referring to the new AK DAPs which only have 1 microSD slot compared to the older versions with 2 slots.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

      I would love to listen to the new Ref.1. It might just be what I'm looking for. Don't get me wrong, I like the SE846 a lot. Detail and soundstage is impressive but the bass sounds too dry and lacks body/dynamic feel of a DD. Also treble is too rolled off. White filter does improve it a bit...

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

    I had the chance to listen to the IE800 today and to my surprise, I actually liked them quite a bit. Coming from a pair of UM Merlins, I was especially impressed with the treble. Compared to the IE800, the treble of the Merlins sounds a lot more recessed. I'm very sensitive when it comes to...

    REVIEW: Unique Melody Merlin - hybrid dynamic/balanced armature custom IEM

    Today I had the chance to try the Merlin with different DAPs. While I liked the X5 a lot, the AK240+Merlin is just on another level!

    The Astell and Kern AK240 Impressions Thread

    Today I had the chance to listen to the entire line of AK DAPs and some Fiio DAPsat a local store. Sadly they didn't have the ZX1 or DX90 though. I was using my Merlin with SP cable from Frank. I wasn't very impressed with the AK100 MKII and the AK120. However, I was very surprised how good the...

    Shure SE846: A New In-Ear Flagship From Shure. Finally! (Impressions p26-28)

    I should be receiving my pair next week. Currently looking for a replacement cable. Any recommendations?  I saw a lot of people suggesting silver OCC litz cable from HPL. Looking at the pictures, it looks quite thick and stiff.  Would prefer cables from double helix, forza audio works or toxic...

    JH Audio Sirens Series Roxanne Impressions Thread

    If you don't mind me asking, how did you end up paying?  I'm going to attend the highend munich show next month and I'm looking forward to try the AK240. Depending on how much of an improvement it is and whether they'll offer a special price at the show or not, I might end up getting one as well.
