    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'EarSonics SM3 Universal Fit IEM'

      Well, what was I expecting on hearing these at first? Very hard question to answer really, probably a darker sound than the w2’s, an altogether more complete sound than the dtx100, less detail than the hf5 (courtesy of Benny) and a rather dodgily put together earphone which will apparently...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Sleek Audio SA1 Siam Rosewood Earphones'

    I love the look of Sleek's sa1, the rosewood body of them and the overall build quality is unsurpassed at their price. That is enough in a lot of people's eyes to convince them, they do, however, have a few problems.   The sleek customizability is not one of them though. They come with quite...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Ultimate Ears MetroFi 200 Noise Isolating Earphones'

    Ultimate ears metro.fi range are often overlooked on these forums. There is a simple reason for this, they are not worth the price they quite often retail at. They are, however, frequently on special offers and very good deals, i've even seen them being given away with other things costing only...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Rega - P2 - Turntable with RB250 Tonearm with Bias 2 Cartridge'

    Rega have been producing turntables for a long time and this one is a credit to the brand name. I consider myself to own a good dac which can be passed through a reasonably good amp and to some good speakers. I listen to most of my music this way. I also, however, have a wide taste in music and...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Sennheiser CX 400 In-Ear Headphone (Black)'

    I bought my pair of cx400 to replace my cx300 and was expecting it to be a more refined version. I was, it's pretty safe to say, disappointed. The sound you get from these is far too similar to the 300's for their own good. I had the same problems with the cx400 as the 300. So I got boomy bass...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Sennheiser CX300-B Earbuds (Black)'

    Like many other people, I got my cx300's as they were widely available on the high street with not much competition at the time. They are mostly known for their bass which is very abundant. The problem with that much emphasis on bass is the rest of the range suffers. Treble, in particular...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Ultimate Ears super.fi 3 Studio - Headphones ( in-ear ear-bud ) - black'

    These earphones have been on the market for a long time now and as such, good though i'm sure they were when first released, things have moved on a bit since. They are a single BA driver iem which on first sight are very good with an impressive array of accessories, the hard case, in particular...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Beyer Dynamic DTX 100 SW Premium in Ear Buds (Black)'

      Beyerdynamic's dtx100 is their top of the line dynamic driver iem. It has a bass driven sound very similar to the 60/80 which is a signature I like. Bass heads may be left wanting as will detail freaks but they are fun with a punchy attack and very user friendly. They exhibit marginally less...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Beyer Dynamic DTX 80 SW Premium in Ear Buds (Black)'

    Beyerdynamic's dtx80 is a dynamic driver iem. It has a bass focussed sound which unlike the dtx60 I like. Bass heads may find less than, for example, Sennheiser's cx***, but the doesn't need to take over the music when it provides a nice mattress for the rest of the layers to lean on. I don't...

    Review by 'Marcus_C' on item 'Beyer Dynamic DTX 60 SW Premium in Ear Buds (Black)'

    Beyerdynamic's dtx60 is a dynamic driver iem sitting below the dtx80/100 in the range. It has a bass focussed sound which may be fine for some people but I don't enjoy massive bass when there is little definition which is what this earphone is lacking in that department. Mids and vocals are...
