    @rickyleelee   I did mention that the micro USB3.0 was overkill, which is why I said that the Nano is probably more appropriate for most people. Would have loved to get some time with the iPurifier. Thanks for the support nonetheless!   My Nikon is garbage haha - as you can see from the photos.

    Introduction: iFi Audio is a company with products that I’ve had the pleasure of auditioning at multiple occasions, but never had the chance to really sit down and spend quality time with. Luckily for me, a good friend of mine recently started working for iFi and reached out to me to see if I...

    Review by 'Cotnijoe' on item 'T-PEOS RASIEL'

    Introduction T-PEOS is a company that I have some degree of familiarity with. They seem to be a company targeted towards the lower-mid budget market with offerings that seem to focus on a generous amount of bass. I got the opportunity to test and review the Altone 250 about a year ago and...

    I wiah i knew how the AK380 sounds. I can only say there are a few headfiers chose the LPG over the 380. However, there are sure to be people that seing the other way.

    The line out issue I found is certainly unusual to say the least... The good news is that you can change the volume without much degredation. Purists may disagree though. You know im always ready to meet up! Ive been interested in the QP1R

    Review by 'Cotnijoe' on item 'Lotoo Paw Gold'

    Introduction: I first heard the Lotoo PAW Gold (LPG) at RMAF 2015. I exchanged information with XiaoQi of Lotoo and I later contacted him and was given the opportunity to review both the PAW Gold and the 5000. Lotoo sent me both units in a package and I’ve since spend quite a bit of time with...

    Yea as long as your folders are well organized. You'll have no issues navigating through the folders.

    Ok so there's an option called "covers" where you can select the album and it will automatically play the album. If you're repeat setting is "sequence" or "repeat playlist" or something like that, it should go in order.   You can also skim through the file by folder, in which case, if you're...

    @puworld Are you referring to when you're just browsing through your folders or using the "covers" list that I mentioned in my write up?

    Review by 'Cotnijoe' on item 'Lotoo Paw 5000'

    Introduction: I’ve seen lotoo threads and discussions around Head-Fi before, but I haven’t paid too much attention to their products mostly because they’re fairly deceiving with their looks in the sense that they look rather primitive by today’s standards. However, I had the good luck of...

    Review by 'Cotnijoe' on item 'Ultimate Ears In-Ear Reference Monitors'

    Edit: So UE has announced the new update to the UERM, the UE Reference Remastered... 1 day after my review. Pretty ironic but it is what it is haha. So I guess this review may be more a tribute to the past than I had initially intended it to be as the UERM is now officially discontinued.   The...

    Introduction:             Cayin is a company that has hit the portable audio market by storm the past year or two.

    Review by 'Cotnijoe' on item 'ZMF Headphones Omni'

    Introduction:             I’ve always been curious about Zach’s modded Fostex T50RPs. I almost grabbed myself a set of the ZMF x Vibro from Massdrop a few months back, but decided against it due to many people saying that it’s a richer, darker, LCD-2 sort of sound, which isn’t my personal...

    Review by 'Cotnijoe' on item 'Nouske NH-14 Hybrid 2-Way Balanced Armature + Dynamic Driver In-Ear Headphone'

    Introduction:             Nouske is a company I’ve never heard of or seen on Head-Fi or on the internet as a whole. I was first contacted by their rep, Laura, back in August regarding a new IEM they were releasing. Laura informed me that it was to be a single BA + dynamic hybrid IEM and asked if...

    Reply to review by 'cotnijoe' on item 'Aune X1S 32Bit/384KHz DSD DAC Headphone Amplifier'

    The bass extension issue was only an issue with my HE560. Bass extension was not an issue for anything else I tried, so I wouldn't doubt that the X1S does indeed have a ruler flat response in the low end. Perhaps I could have been a bit clearer in stating that, but I did mention that besides the...

    Reply to review by 'cotnijoe' on item 'Aune X1S 32Bit/384KHz DSD DAC Headphone Amplifier'

    The HE560's relatively low sensitivity still makes it a bit difficult to drive, although not nearly as bad as some other planars out there.

    Introduction:             The Aune X1S is a product that has piqued my interest since its release. After getting the chance to hear the B1 amp, Aune was a company I kept my eyes out for. This X1S unit is part of the review tour that Aune kindly organized, and I’m very happy to have the chance...

    Introduction: I currently have the Calyx PaT, Cozoy Aegis, and Cozoy Astrapi in hand. I got these three from my good friend, nmatheis, who sent the three as a set to a couple Head-Fiers to audition as sort of a “phone powered DAC/Amp” tour if you will. For this review, I will be talking briefly...

     Quick Introduction: I’m sure by now, many people know of the tours that Fiio often hold for Head-Fiers interested in giving their line of DAPs a listen. The X5ii I have in my possession is part of the North American tour and also the third Fiio tour that I have participated in. I’m glad that...

    Reply to review by 'cotnijoe' on item 'HiFiMAN HE400S'

    @all999 I considered for a while of giving it a 4, but I ultimately do feel that 4.5 is more appropriate for the HE400S. The treble roll off isn't as much of an issue as it is a tuning preference, but yes the bass roll off is somewhat of an issue for me. I'd love to know what you mean when you...
