    UK Head-Fi'ers - Do you want to see a new, mystery SoundMAGIC product?

    A brief update.  SoundMAGIC went back to the drawing board with the Vento P55 back in November 2015.   The P55 driver has been completely redesigned (the engineered over 60 revisions to get it perfect) and is just being relaunched now in August 2016.  Good things come to those who wait! :)

    SoundMAGIC VENTO P55 US & Canada Review Tours

    Yes, the Vento P55 went back to the drawing board after a planned launch back in November 2015.  The launch was pulled at the last minute and Tony Xu (owner and lead designer) went back to re-engineering the driver.  A couple of review samples made it out, but we're told by SoundMAGIC that none...

    SoundMAGIC Vento Speculation/Discussion Thread

    Tony Xu at SoundMAGIC (owner and lead designer) is definitely aware of the issues with the design of the HP150/HP200 fork and will likely revisit these designs in the future.   Also, a bit of hot news.  We've seen initial designs of an HP1000, which is full size and very much in keeping with...

    SoundMAGIC Vento P55 vs HP100/HP150

    The SoundMAGIC Vento was due to be launched in November 2015, but was delayed by SoundMAGIC due to them being unhappy with the sound.   The headphone design was complete back then, except for the speaker design.  They've since been through over 60 revisions of the driver design to get it...

    SoundMAGIC release E50S and E80S In-Ear Reference Series

    Our experience with the ES20 is that it's very impressive indeed.  The ES20 is much more neutral and better controlled than the ES18.  The ES18 is a fun sounding earphone, but aimed at the mainstream with a big powerful bass.  The ES20 is a more grown up headphone.   The ES20 did have some...

    Lotoo PAW 5000 now available from Hifiheadphones.co.uk

    Thanks for the correction technobear.  No deliberate misleading going on, just a mistake when we created the page.  The product page was created before we had access to a physical sample and the PAW 5000's big brother (the PAW Gold) does support full size cards.  There was probably a bit of copy...

    Sennheiser Momentum vs Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) P7

    Another one to throw in the mix is the Final Audio Design Pandora IV.   The Pandora IV is a closed back design that is easy to drive and is just a little bit more expensive than the B&W P7.  I would say the Pandora IV is a worthy alternative to the B&W P7.
