    TOUR CLOSED - US Head-Fi Tour: Fearless Audio CIEM Tour - Starting May 2019

    Just wrapping up with the tour kit, While the S8F and S8P are fairly close, I actually prefer the pro version- to my ears there is a slight improvement in clarity in the upper registers where cymbals sound cleaner. S8 pro is my favorite of the bunch. For the price I thought S8P/S8F > S6 Rui...

    So now that I have my Spring1 back from loomisjohnson (he had a great succinct review at the blog) I decided to remove the entire mesh screen grill for a quick test. While I don't feel it really changed the issue with the bass, it is still pretty woolly because the boost begins rather early into...

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    This is the cable I used on mine, I like the mic just because I like to change tracks or pause without taking my phone out. I only found a white version of the same cable on ebay once, but the mic is plastic. The black one from this store is the same as ones used on TRN cables...

    The Fragrant Zither (TFZ) Reviews and Impressions Thread

    I had planned on using the 30 coupon from the TFZ store but didn't read the fine print it is only for one model which is not the King Pro I had planned on buying. $118 for the King Pro seems ok, but under $100 was more enticing. Now I am considering other things, or just saving the money.

    If you wanted a TRN model, the V90 is superior to the V80. The treble issues from the V80 are corrected and the build and fit are great as well. We have several reviews on the blog in my signature, the ZSX is quite large in comparison to the V90 as shown in my review.

    My take on the TRN V90 is live on the blog in my signature. It has a comparison graph to the KZ ZSX Terminator for the quantitative folks. I haven't had time to do a full comparison, but if you listen primarily to EDM, the ZSX. For the better all arounder, the V90.

    NiceHCK Earphones (Thoughts and impressions)

    Looks like he found a way to reduce inventory of unwanted colors, make everyone buy all the colors and therefore there is not an imbalance of say left over red ones while the more neutral silver color sells better. I wonder how much added to the cost of having 3 faceplates. I might be interested...

    NiceHCK Earphones (Thoughts and impressions)

    Just don't buy it on first release, wait for the hype to slow and buy it discounted or wait for the revised model to make it past the initial hype. M6 was > $105/110 with initial discount at $96, now you can buy it at $76 on 11/11 a year later. It is annoying though, similar to buying an album...

    The in your head feeling is pretty much all headphones/iems unless listening to binaural music because it was recorded the same way. Match the playback to the recording method to get the best experience. Normal everyday hearing/brain is used to crosstalk in lower frequencies tapering off >1.5khz...

    TRN impressions thread

    Yeah, the TRN V90 is definitely a recommendation for 2019 for me, and totally agree with the pricepoint comments. The 100-150 price range is only marginal improvements and I have to think longer about picking a few of those models which is not a bad thing. I've zoned in on my preferred signature...

    The discovery thread!

    A pair of Pioneer S-910s fell into my lap from my buddy's electronic recycling heap. The woofers were blown/missing and one ribbon tweeter shot. Found a replacement tweeter and had a pair of woofers laying around. Has that 80's sound but the beryllium ribbon tweeters seemed to be one of the cool...

    I keep trying to figure out what is going on with the bass, to me they are bipolar. On some songs it is a little slow sounding (not M6/DMG slowness but still...), sometimes it floats in front of the rest of the mix, and other times it sounds just right. I find it sounds a bit tubby or boomy most...

    That is weird you think the dual flange wide bore would be good with the Spring 1, that is the opposite of what seems to work which is shallow wide bore so there is minimal overhang on the tip to the lip of the nozzle. That was your conclusion and what seems to work for me too. I am glad...

    I think maybe people need to make sure they are talking about the same thing, there is a BLON BL01, but the hype is around the BL03. Second thing, there is a major value component here to the BL03, otherwise the Tanchjim Oxygen would be flying off the shelf. We can all try to deny that...
