    [REVIEW] AKG K612 - the underpriced underdog

    I myself haven’t been extremely well-versed in writing reviews - but this is an attempt to provide the community with a review on a less well-known headphone, the AKG K612. I settled on this decision since I was looking to experiment more with the open-back sound (most of my cans have been...

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

      Hi iohk,   Does it appear to survive the flight? Would be a shame if these battery issues persist firmware update after firmware update. I assume you're using FW version 0.6?

    does anyone have any idea how long the battery lasts? There's been a lot of negative comments about the battery life on this rig.

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

    Pre-orders are open here in Singapore but the price is rather steep. Not sure if any one is really considering to pre-order, but my first impressions of the prototype sound good.

    TDK IE800 Dual High-Performance Dynamic Micro-Drivers IEM

    I found the IE800 to be underwhelming after living with my BA200 for quite sometime. Guess it's the BA sound - just my 2 cents.

    AKG K550 vs. Audio-Technica ATH-M50

    Suffice to say that the K550 is a generally neutral phone. I wouldn't say it excels stellarly at a particular genre or another, or any particular frequency range - none get any emphasis. Pretty good if you're gonna throw alot of genres of music it, but the preference boils down to whether you...

    AKG K550 or Shure SHR-840?

    I've heard the Shure 940s/840s and own the K550s. Personally I find the K550s to be versatile, but it probably doesn't do much justice to rock if you like an upfront forward presentation. The AKGs sound very relaxed - but that doesn't mean they can't do rock. Seals wise I find them quite easy to...

    Research about beats by dre

    Quote:   I've heard both, and I would say the K550s are whole lot more transparent and revealing. But if you're after bass, the M50 would give the impact. The K550 does better with less impact but it goes low - very low. Also the K550s are alot more neutral and laid back with a larger...

    Research about beats by dre

    Quote: Of course it's not just the looks, also look at how much Monster pays for the marketing. Do agree with regard to your point on the M50s too: they are of course also far superior in comfort. (look at them cushy earpads!)

    AKG K550 Review.

    Quote: Why would you wanna open up the cups for? Just curious. In anycase yes the comfort does get alot better after it's worn.

    I don't know, but apparently i might reshell them the next time these things break (and there's no more warranty)

    UE700 vs Shure SE425 (and changes from UE to Logitech's design)

    Hi guys, just got my UE700 back from servicing. And apparently they replaced the unit with a new one. Personally I noticed a few things: cabling is now flimsier, and it terminates in a right angled plug. Most importantly, the sound bore seems to be longer. Personally I'm not sure if acoustically...

    IEMs that make you fall in love - recommendations?

    I've only heard the westone 2: these are quite boring, but i think the Westone 3s should be way better.

    Ultimate Ears 700 -UE700- Review (Comparison/Vs Jays q-Jays)

    Still waiting for mine to come back from RMA. It is better than the 600 (superfi 5) in my opinion. Congrats on your purchase!

    Ultimate Ears 700, thoughts?

    The cables might be an issue though: mine's stuck at service. They aren't as durable as Shures but I think extreme care would work.

    Audio Technica ATH-WS70 review

    Hi guys: I'm actually quite new here but I've been lurking around for sometime. What brought me to head-fi was my need for a portable hi-fi set up (come on who lugs around their component systems). However due to a limited budget i'm often short of equipment. I haven't seen this headphone on...

    Shure SRH 940 impression and support thread

    I think there might be a grip with regard to the sources. Personally I don't really listen using a very very good portable source so I'll have to check these out some other time. Anyone tried using them direct off an iDevice?

    11 New Sony BA IEMs

    Quote: Why? Personally I think the triple BA sounds good. And the TF10 is as clear as day to me, ergonomics and seal notwithstanding...   edit: There doesn't seem to be crossovers in these IEMs. Any ideas?
