Shanling M2 product page: LINK

LINK to dedicated Shanling M2 thread


Here are some glamour pics of the M2 to whet your appetite. Note the fitear IEM. Suyama-san of fitear has been known to use the M2's big brother, the M3, and fitear IEM were used during the M2's tuning process.



What I can only guess is the Metal EQ preset throwing us some horns. I'm sold right there \m/ \m/

Yeah, I'm in.

The Cayin N5 tour unit arrived today. Soon the X7 demos will begin shipping. This is going to be a busy month. :xf_eek:

I'm interested, like PinkyPowers above, also just got the Cayin N5 today to review. Would love to check out the M2.
I'm in Trenton NJ, USA.
Some reviews, but mostly comments and observations throughout the threads with the multiple gear that I own. 
Thanks and cheers.

Thank you very much for this tour @nmatheis!
 
Alright, I'm also interested in reviewing the shanlin M2 while providing first auditory impressions about them. I'll be using the sony player and (hopefully if I received the product at a proper time) the cayin n5 to compare them. 
 
I'm in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

Thanks hakushondaimao! My intention was to produce the most informative and helpful analysis of the Audio Technica headphones I owned. Thank you for your comment. :)
 
Your review of the r70x (and others like earfonia, twister, and two other reviewers) induced me to form the thread. The reviews were that good (and fun reads)!
