    So they were on a very thin film - i got it off by just gently scratching the edge of the screen with a nail. Unfortunately have sold now so dont have a photo :/

    Review by 'Grimbles' on item 'Lime Ears Model X'

    Quick Read Conclusion I joined the review trail for the Lime Ears Model X (universal) (“Model X”) reasonably excited about the proposition of switchable tuning. I have seen a number of IEMs including this sort of functionality over the last few years, and the Model X was the first I got my...

    Thanks for the review enjoyed this. I had a pair of b8s i lost on a train a little while ago. Whilst i enjoyed them, ive since listened to better soubding iems with fewer ba's in them. Interesting to read your thoughts on sonic profile of these. Thank you :)

    Nice tip @Kitechaser - they've gone back now, so I haven't had the chance to try this out. Hopefully anybody reading the review will see your comments though.

    Review by 'Grimbles' on item 'Clear Tune Monitors Da Vinci IX'

    Quick Read Conclusion I set out to review the CTM DaVinci IX and X to figure out if I could tell the difference between my mid-fi kit, and some properly premium, top of the range equipment. Unfortunately for my wallet I can! These IEMs are absolutely sublime and from the second you open the...

    Review by 'Grimbles' on item 'CustomArt FIBAE - Massdrop Edition'

    Quick Read Conclusion The masterpiece of the FIBAE MEs is musicality delivered through their very own sound signature. Sure there is a real emphasis on the lower frequencies, but this doesn't come at the expense of the rest. Mids are still sweet, highs fine… opulent almost and never recessed...

    Reply to review by 'Grimbles' on item 'Campfire Audio Solaris'

    Hi @davidmolliere , firstly great review! One question - I have the polaris (which I love), nut my one criticism is, because the bass port sits on the faceplate, if it is windy you get a lot of noise inside the iem. Where is the bass port situated on the solaris? Did you take it outside/notice...

    Review by 'Grimbles' on item 'iFi iPurifier 3.0'

    Quick Read Conclusion I really had to shuffle the iFi iPurifier 3 USB ("iPurifier") around my kit before I noticed any difference with it. Subtle though that difference is, once I started hearing it, I quickly came to enjoy the sound with the iPurifier more than without it. Given my current...

    I enjoyed this review mate. I like the way you have taken time to really define your meaning eg "faultless" and taken some time to talk about your process. I think i will be taking a leaf out of your book for my next review :)

    Comment by 'Grimbles' in item 'Mee Audio Universal MMCX Balanced Audio Cable With Adapter Set'

    Thanks for this review chap. My totl is also the polaris, and this cable has been in my amazon lust list for a while now. Ive bought a few cheap (read crap) cables but have wondered for a while if this is worth the dosh. I've got ifi and a&k kit, so having 2.5 and 3.5 balanced on hand is a...

    Review by 'Grimbles' on item 'Aune B1S'

    Quick Read Conclusion The Aune B1s ("B1s") is a head turning pocket amplifier very well suited to more sensitive headphones, including IEMs that benefit from a little more oomph and a low noise floor. Although it makes a lovely, warm sound it is hard to recommend without question because it...

    Review by 'Grimbles' on item 'iFi Audio iEMatch Headphone Travel Accessory'

    Quick Read Conclusion The iFi Audio iEMatch (the "iEMatch") is a handy little device which helps to eliminate hiss and hum for sensitive earphones (and is particularly focussed on IEMs, hence the name). It does the job well, at a reasonable price, and has the added benefit (in 3.5mm form) of...
