    Reply to review by 'cleg' on item 'Meze 99 series 2.5mm balanced cable'

    If I remember right, Denon uses 2.5 mm jacks in cups, so this cable won't fit them

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'BGVP DMG'

    Sometimes I wonder, how Chinese manufacturers come out with that names: TRN, BGVP, BQEYZ… But despite the naming, usually that new models are indeed impressive, and BGVP DMG that I want to tell about is no exception. Before I proceed, I'd like to thank DD Audio store for providing me review...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'Meze 99 series 2.5mm balanced cable'

    It's not the first Meze's attempt to offer a balanced cable, some time ago, they created great cable, but its price is pretty high, compared with more than affordable 99 Series headphones. So, Meze decided to create a new cable with a better price range, and now we've got it. First of all, I'd...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'Penon GS849'

    In my recent review of Penon's OS849 cable, I've already shared my opinion about cables and their impact on sound. I won't repeat it once again, but in short: I'm making blind A/B tests to describe the difference between cables, and changes are often audible, but I doubt that changes are implied...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'Penon OS849'

    When it comes to the cables, I'm always holding skeptical positions. I do believe that cable can change a sound, but I don't believe in "universal changes," especially those based on the material. You know, all that stories about "silver improves treble" or "copper adds more lows." Of course...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'IMR Acoustics R1'

    Ceramic drivers in the role of high-frequency tweeters in the portable audio are no longer a novelty; they were used by both the Japanese from Radius and the Chinese from 1More, wherein achieving excellent results in a treble area. However, I somehow did not find the model, which, in addition to...

    shenanbay, you'll need to contact AA directly using one of possible ways: (email, skype, contact form or social networks), as premium designs isn't available in constructor yet. Also, please note, my version isn't resin, it's a compound acryl.

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'Ambient Acoustics AM7 LAM-С'

    Many years of friendship connects me with Ambient Acoustics Laboratory from Kyiv. Once upon a time, I've started my journey to the world of customs with their 4-driver model AM4. Then it was upgraded to 6 drivers, to 10… Once you get locked into multi-driver CIEMs, the tendency is to push it as...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'TheBit Opus#1s'

    It's always good to start a review with some bold statement. Here it is: I think theBit is the only company that can compete with A&K in the DAP world. There are few other companies, offering competitive solutions, but only theBit managed to create product both stylish, comfortable in use, and...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'LEAR Kaleido'

    Pretty long ago I've had an outstanding experience with Lear's IEMs: AE1d, LUF-4, BD4.2 — all of those models offered perfect price/quality ratio. Lear also released few exciting models with NatroSound technology. But for last few years I didn't hear much from Lear, but meanwhile, they've...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'Campfire Audio Andromeda'

    I always was a great fan of any "limited editions" and other "exclusive" stuff. So, when my friends from (Ukrainian distributor of Campfire Audio) told me that they got in stock Pacific Blue version of Andromedas I've decided to sold mine regular ones and upgrade. I'm not sure, are...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'The Bit Opus #3'

    Looks like theBit have decided to become a king of the hill, or at least join those who are already standing on the top. After the first successful skill test (I mean OPUS#1) they've come back with really flagship OPUS#2 model that can be considered as one of the TOTL solutions. And now, theBit...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'Meze 99 Neo'

    I think it would be pretty fair to call Meze 99 Classics last year's sensation. Appeared early 2016, they quickly prove themselves being an excellent price/quality performer. Meze engineers decided to sustain those achievements and released a more affordable model. First of all, I'd like to...

    Review by 'cleg' on item ' Campfire Audio Vega'

    Campfire Audio are a perfect example of brand development from scratch. Their IEMs lineup blew the market up, offering excellent quality for reasonable money. First 3 models — Lyra, Orion and Jupiter became a huge success, but CA continued expanding their lineup and offered full range of IEMs...

    I've just checked with my OPUS#2 — changes in the EQ are almost instant and you can turn it on/off and adjust without stopping music.

    @PinkyPowers no, OPUS#2 is also good for "normal" full-size cans, it's just not enough for really tough models. It has 2.5 Vrms from balanced output, which is really OK.

    @PinkyPowers mine OPUS#1 is in loaner tour in Ukraine, so I can't make a direct comparison, but as I remember (and I can be wrong, as memory isn't reliable here) OPUS#1 isn't warmer then this. OPUS#2 has better defined bass with better body, but they both are far from being warm to me. But...

    Review by 'cleg' on item 'HUM Pristine Dual BA IEM'

    HUM Pristine earphones became for me one of the biggest surprises of 2016, so I've decided to gather my skills and create a review. HUM is pretty well known on the exUSSR market due to their Pervasion DAP, which gathered a group of fans of its unique sound. Meanwhile, other HUM's products (IEMs...

    Well, it was a really long journey, but at last I've got my new Omnis. It's hard to believe, but it took 3 attempts to get at least one of Zach's wooden Fostex. First attempt was made at the beginning of the year, it was ZMF x Vibro, sent by USPS. And they were stolen somewhere in between...
