    Or... Customs? I mean, if you already launch a Studio series, the idea might not come completely out of the blue, right? ;)

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    The reason sound designers use multiple drivers is to reduce noise, e.g. unwanted harmonics. So if your bass driver has creates noise at 200 Hz, you will hear sound at frequencies that are not part of the actual audio information, in this case at 400, 600, 800, ... Hz (multiples of 200 Hz). So...

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    Not quite sure what the EQ Preset Radio is for. Who wants to listen to that? :ksc75smile:

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    I’m 100% sure I have 1.0.0.7 installed. Edit: I'm sharing it here. I received the file from Lotoo today. https://www.klauseulenbach.de/wp-content/uploads/PAW-S1_1.0.0.7.zip

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    Hey guys, I joined the PAW S1 club. 🙂 That means less playtime for my Chord Mojo and Hugo 2. And probably none anymore for my Ikko Zerda dongle... The form factor is so awesome! I love holding it in my hand and it's just light enough to have it "dongle" around without having to worry about...

    I can't imagine any portable setup in which you would need a balanced connection. Some of the best sources available do not use balanced outputs (internally yes) and they have written white papers of why such a thing would be useless. A decent unbalanced cable is not one bit inferior. 2.5mm has...

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I object, please do not use SpinFit with at least the E2000 and E3000. Yes, they do boost the treble above 8 kHz which creates more air. But there is a small vent next to the nozzle and the SpinFit (and presumably most tips) will block it. This results in a massive 8-10 dB bass boost and slower...

    DUNU LUNA - Impressions and Discussion

    I admit, I haven't read many of the comments because I like to go unbiased into new gear. I also don't measure IEMs until I have spent a few days listening to them because I know they can be deceiving. I want to keep impressions short so I still have something left to write for my own blog. 😜...

    “Reference” IEMs

    We are in a time in which everyone voices his/her/its opinion. I think it would be wiser just not to trust inexperienced reviewers. What gives a reviewer's opinion weight? If he/she/it has worked as consultant for IEM designers before or is known as a market specialist. If he understands the...

    Here is another set of measurements. A little bright tilt in the midrange and some very present treble. Somehow the A8000 manage to dodge sibilance, though. At least for me. Channel balance is great. It's a tuning that excels with Classical music. Here is how the fit can adjust the...

    These are a PAIN to shoot in macro. Dust everywhere... Fingerprints and dust are impossible to avoid. I use the Campfire Solaris case and pouch to keep them from scratches. I hope that helps...

    NF Audio impression thread.

    Cool, I didn't know there is a separate thread for NF Audio. I have a review and a detailed comparison to the qdc Neptune on my blog: https://www.klauseulenbach.de/category/blog/nf-audio/ Measurements, too. I also wrote a review for the custom NF6i on Headfonics a while back...

    Learning to play the piano! Any advice?

    Thank you very much for the detailed response, @baskingshark! I appreciate it. My wife is a terrible teacher, unfortunately. Very impatient. She didn't help me learn Chinese either, though it only took me 3 years to pass HSK5. She was still not satisfied and complains I'm too bad. :D We have...

    Learning to play the piano! Any advice?

    Hi fellow headphone fans, my wife used to play the piano quite well as a child. She wants to pick it up again so we just ordered a digital piano. I want to take the chance and learn to play myself. She will probably be playing 2 hours/day, but best I can squeeze out on weekdays is 30mins and...

    Overall, I prefer the A18t over the tia Fourté. Probably even the U12t. But when the Fourté matches an album, boy oh boy, then it explodes. While the Noir was still available, I took the demo home many times. The reason is that it just resonated too incredibly well with Michael Jackson. Now...

    VISION EARS | LAUNCH: EVE and ELYSIUM universal

    Oh crap! Have you considered an EVE subscription yet? 3 years for 30% off. Must be an amazing playground for your sound designer, though. I guess he got bored and wants to release more toys. 🙂 Good for the Elysium! It deserves a greater reach.

    Vision Ears and Rhines Custom Monitors (formerly Compact Monitors)

    The ambiance system is simply breaking the seal. There is a filter included to fully seal the CIEM so you are not losing anything. Leaving the filter out completely will have the same effect as taking out the apex modules. You basically have zero sub-bass and a very strong roll-off in the bass...

    Equalize first, measure second: Share your results!

    Trying to figure out the "perfect" target response for my IEC 60318-4 raw measurements, I just couldn't agree with most targets out there. So I decided on a new approach. Levering out any research, I have individually equalized multiple high-end IEMs with a sine tone generator so I could match...

    Be VERY careful with interpreting measurements of other people. Read Crinacle's explanation here: https://crinacle.com/2020/04/08/graphs-101-how-to-read-headphone-measurements/ He does not account for fit variations in his measurements. Here is my same IEC 60318-4 compliant measurement of the...

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    To be fair, the tia Trió doesn't have any peak around 7-8 kHz per se. What you are experiencing is the resonance of your own ear canal. It adds to the tuning of the IEM, which is actually even a bit recessed. You can easily adjust it with a deeper fit or other ear tips. For me, the resonance...

    You are aware that the Cipher cable has an integrated EQ, right? By default, this is what the Cipher cable does: Cipher-EQ-web.png I'm not sure if I'd want the U12t to turn out to be an extreme v-shape. I believe the settings via the app can be stored, though. Any changes would be done to the...

    Final B1 is an absolute stunner! BTW, here is a German comparison review of the Final B series. Since it's in German, it might not be of much use for most of you, but perhaps you enjoy the pictures: https://headtek.de/_blog/2020/04/07/testbericht-final-audio-b1-b2-b3/
