Headphoneus Supremus
Pros: An even, complete and correct idea of the Harman Response Direction
6 custom BAs and a DD for the lows
Careful and complete sound, walking that line between boring and wild
Comes with a HiSenior 1010 style case
Comes as a CIEM if wanted
Comes with optional faceplate and shell designs if wanted
Tonally sounds correct from any source
Cons: Soundstage is average, yet shows itself to expand due to stage offered-up in file

Hi-RES sound with RGB?

Pros: Highly portable
4.4 balanced and 3.5 single-ended
Desktop-capable USB DAC/amp
Qobuz, Tidal built-in
Graphic equalizer and MSEB tone balancing mini-apps
Cons: No Android system, audio-focused instead
Album art not always captured
Quick-start guide not too helpful, play around to learn setting capabilities
Some settings, like clock change, occur when you touch and scroll a number but there's no arrows or other indicators that you can do so
TLDR: In every way I find important, the Mark II version of the HiBy R3 is a true upgrade from the prior version, well worth the current asking price (as of 10/2/23) of $179 and even more. You...

500+ Head-Fier
Pros: △ High quality resin shell chassis
△ The contours of its UIEM-style shell chassis gives the best fitting and comfort to wear.
△ High quality stock cable.
△ Unusually large IEM case for storage.
△ A well-balanced sound for music genre versatility.
△ Good amplification rating.
△ Punchy, incisive and clean bass response.
△ Adequately texture, lush and enough warmth on its midrange presentation for more natural timbre on vocals and instruments.
△ Almost life-like and tonally correct on its sound characteristics of most vocals and instruments.
△ Balanced and smooth treble response
△ Sibilances and harshness are practically non-existent on this one.
△ Very competent on its overall technical performances.
Cons: ▽ Less energetic sound on some female vocals particularly on sopranos as it feels pretty limited on projecting its range.
▽ Less bright and lingering sound on string instruments.
▽ Wishing for a bit more of treble air.

Hype is now used nowadays for advertising and marketing tactics. It is a form of excessive and unrestrained promotion or...

New Head-Fier
Pros: Adaptive ANC
Lots of EQ options
LDAC + other codecs
Cheap given all its features
Cons: Sound difficult to EQ to neutral


I have been a fan of the Soundcore Q30 for a while, with the right EQ it can sound great. It is a budget “audiophile” secret especially with its decent ANC. Then I...

Headphoneus Supremus
Pros: Best bass implementation of 64 Audio with such quantity and at the same time control
Top notch technicalities
Very coherent tonality
Tons of details
Excellent rendering of voices
Cons: Comes only with unbalanced cable
Not the biggest soundstage
The latest model with the name Volür from 64 Audio is the successor to the popular Nio. With a price of 2749€, it is above the Trio and below the U18s/t. That's a lot more expensive than the Nio...

500+ Head-Fier
Pros: Fun and warm V-tuning, with a nice, pleasant midrange and smooth treble.
- Ideal set for everyday use and as a first choice for newcomers.
- Very comfortable and lightweight.
- Good cable for the price.
- Very good value for money.
Cons: Minimal accessory set, just enough, without even a storage bag.
- For the price, don't expect a technically outstanding set.
- The tuning is soft in general, especially in the treble, which is also not very extended.

Hidizs is still in the race. In a very short time it has presented a whole range of IEMS. From the top of the range MS5 (1DDD+4BA), to more economical and...

- Well built with beautiful finishing
- xlr-mini jack
Cons: - No way to swivel the cups to reduce its size

So i got the Kennerton Heartland.
Can this beautiful and lightweight planar headphone deliver the high expectations i had for it?
The looks is already in the TOTL tier, rich wood around the cups...

New Head-Fier
Pros: The best sound quality for a DAP
Accurate but engaging tonality through all frequencies
Large soundstage with precise location for all instruments
Decent power output, enough for all IEMs
Many sound settings and fast-updating firmware provides flexibility in sound style
A variety of connection options
Powered by battery
Low prices compare with other flagship DAPs
Cons: Size and weight
System may be non-intuitive, best sounding firmware only supports WAV format
Lack of EQ options
No LO ports
Insufficient power output compared to a proper desktop AMP
Power supply needed to unleash full power
Conclusion first: the QA390LE is the best DAP I've ever heard, and I think every TOTL IEM lover should have one.

Compare with my already amazing LP6 Platinum, the QA390 maintains a somewhat...
