    Review by 'Peddler' on item 'Tronsmart Splash 1 Bluetooth Speaker'

    Whilst this speaker isn’t exactly state of the art being an inexpensive small bluetooth speaker, it does have a specific purpose in mind - and that is being able to listen to music, podcasts, etc, whilst taking a bath of shower. The speaker kinda has a similar look and feel to the Google Home...

    Reply to review by 'Peddler' on item 'Tronsmart Onyx Prime Dual-Armature Driver Wireless Earbuds QCC3040 BT 5.2'

    I just thought I would add the following observations to the Onyx Prime's. Bluetooth range and stability appears to be nice and strong. Easily survives the upstairs bathroom test (which is something that now all my TWS headphones can manage). Battery life is very good. Definitely shares a...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I'm getting some really excellent sounds out of the new Tronsmart Onyx Prime's. No ANC or ambient - just really dynamic, detailed and yet comfortable sound. Bass is a little strident but it can be tamed with their app which now offers a multi-band EQ as well as being able to re-configure the...

    Review by 'Peddler' on item 'Tronsmart Onyx Prime Dual-Armature Driver Wireless Earbuds QCC3040 BT 5.2'

    Tronsmart Onyx Prime - Giant Killer? Well, I have to say that regancipher's rather excellent review of the Tronsmart Onyx Prime has left me feeling rather inadequate. It's definitely a hard act to follow - especially considering that my thoughts and opinions on these headphones pretty much...

    What are some 'audiophile' quality TWS earbuds?

    I'm very impressed with the Tronsmart Onyx Prime. Dynamic Driver + Balanced Armature. Good battery life, excellent sound quality (adjustable EQ via app), re-configurable touch controls and nice amount of volume. Definitely better than the Apollo Bold in my opinion. I also rate the Sony...

    Review by 'Peddler' on item 'Tronsmart Onyx Apex True Wireless™ Stereo ANC Earbuds QCC3040 TWS BT5.2'

    I have to admit, I have far too many headphones! I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one on these forums to have this problem but it's something that I'm getting used to. I embraced the concept of wireless headphones quite early on in their evolution and have definitely welcomed the improvements...

    Reply to review by 'Peddler' on item 'Etymotic EVO'

    Many years ago I went from the Etymotic ER4P to the Shure E500's. At first I loved the additional bass but definitely missed the intimacy and detail that the Ety's provided. Sadly these new Ety's are definitely too rich for me - I simply can't afford them. Interestingly, the combination of...

    Sony NW-A50 Series

    I have the A-55 and the Senn 598SR. It does drive them to fairly high levels but I can't help feeling that there could be just a little more oomph. I can regularly listen to certain types of music with the volume control set to max (minus a couple of clicks usually). BTW - this is from a...

    Reply to review by 'Peddler' on item 'iBasso CF01'

    I've just taken a look back at some of these old posts and am currently listening to the iBasso CF01/Magaosi K3 Pro combination and still love them. I have wayyyyyyy too many wireless IEM's in my collection now but the CF01/K3 Pro combo beats them all when it comes to pure sound quality. I...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I have to agree about the comments regarding the iBasso CF01 bluetooth adaptors - when used in combination with the iBasso IT00's or my Magiosa K3 Pro's, they sound fantastic - definitely the best bluetooth performance I have experienced yet. No ANC or passthrough, very limited controls and, in...

    Your music has to be stored in a folder called MUSIC but after that you can use sub folders for individual artists etc. I'm using the DMP Z1 rom to good effect

    What made you first start listening to headphones?

    I got into headphone listening very early on - with the purchase of my first cassette 'Walkman' (A rather chunky Sanyo - that could go loud enough to wake up God). Since then I've gone through countless (and I really do mean countless) portable devices and formats including Mini Disc, CD, MP3 -...

    Favorite True Wireless IEM's?

    If you already have the IT00'S then I would highly recommend the CF01 to pair with them as its a match made in heaven.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Just got the Soundpeats T2 and haven't experienced any issues at all with them - in fact I think they're rather impressive for their price.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I've just got the Soundpeats T2 ANC buds - early impressions are very favourable - they produce a surprisingly good sound for such an inexpensive pair of headphones. More detailed review to follow soon.

    Sony NW-A50 Series

    I recently bought a very nice yet inexpensive case from Amazon. I was using a rubberised case (again, very cheap) but it spoiled the look of the player and picked up dust like nothing else on Earth. Loving this new case though.

    Purchase advice for wireless over-ear headphones, from a list!

    I love my Sony WH1000xm2 headphones - I'm afraid there the only ones I have any experience with. It might be worth considering purchasing a used pair (cost effective way of deciding if you like the Sony sound).

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I'm using the stock tips (silicone) as they have a deeper insertion depth. I normally get the best results from triple flange tips on other IEM's.

    Which wireless IEMs to go for?

    My personal favourites are the following Sony WF1000XM3 Lypertek Tevi Apollo Bold Out of those I suspect you might like the sound characteristics of the Apollo Bold's - even though they have decent active noise cancellation I think you'll like them. If you have no choice but to stick to your...
