    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    The balanced / W-shaped tuning on Indigo is something that I ended up favoring for the portion of my music library that isn't electronic music. Around the time I got Indigo, I was using EXT for a lot of that kind of music (non-electronic) in my library but the U-shaped signature of EXT got...

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    Figured I'd rank these while I still have most of them, as I'll be getting rid of about 2 -3 more or so. Ranking just what I own, with one exception being the Phonix which was sold 2 days ago to a colleague of mine. Xenon 6, Odin Phonix Indigo Z1R EXT IE 900 Some background stats: - The IEM...

    Probably not a good idea that this video plays background music while doing the frequency sweep at the same time. This might be a bit better way to test: https://www.audiocheck.net/audiotests_frequencycheckhigh.php

    Just wrapped up my 4th and final day of listening to the Jewel demo out of the N8ii (high gain/tubes/P+). It went from “this is good but not blown away” on the first day of listening to very impressed by day two and enjoyed it just as much on the final two days. Some impression below... The...

    NEW SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    RAZ's TOTL review and rambles thread
