    Final Fantasy XIV, period.

    Ghost of Tsushima is a must-buy

    Probably the best looking game I have seen. Make no mistake - I have a PC with 2080Ti and have seen what AAA games look at 4K HDR with all options maxed out these days. And Ghost of Tsushima is just a PS4 game (obviously you will have to play on a 4K TV and PS4 Pro to get the most out of it)...

    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.

    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...

    Would you guys choose the IER-Z1R or a Hermes briefcase? I know it is a strange question but it is related to my upcoming birthday present...

    Layla Aion vs Tia Fourte Noir

    I have both Layla (first gen) and Tia Fourte, which will be the better upgrade - Aion or Noir?

    AK SP1000 vs. AK380 ?

    AK240 is actually pocketable, this is why I keep it.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I am looking forward to the pairing of amps and SP1000 units. Cu SPK + Cu Amp, Cu SPK + SS Amp, SS SPK + Cu Amp, SS SPK + SS Amp... It would be an interesting comparison.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I am still torn between getting the amp or upgrading to SP2000. Honestly I rarely use full size cans these days and the SP1000 is only used when I travel by air. SP1000Cu and Tia Fourte is still the best non-speaker setup sound I have ever heard, in some songs I feel that the combo is beating my...

    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...

    AK SP1000 vs. AK380 ?

    SP2000 for the win

    What are the most expensive headphones that money can buy?

    Sorry for reviving a 14 years old thread... I think the new Orpheus setup should be the most expensive these days?

    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...

    Best IEM for gaming?

    I know IEMs aren't ideal for gaming - a full surround sound system or headphones are always preferred. In fact I have an Atmos 7.1.4 system installed and for games that support it, the effect is simply amazing. But I also game at late night and 7.1.4 isn't really viable, and I do a lot of...

    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...
