This thread contains quick links to my specific posts that contain my thoughts on certain topics. This thread is all about my honest thoughts on things. No paid reviews and no free IEMs received in exchange for reviews. Just my honest thoughts and my honest thoughts only. Feel free to ask me anything - I'll try my best to answer if I have the experience. Who am I? I go by the alias of Toranku. I am a Singaporean audiophile who is mainly interested in IEMs. I currently reside in Japan. With both countries being a very healthy and suitable platform for testing an abundance of IEMs, I am very lucky to have tried out many IEMs and I feel like I am adequately prepared to talk about what I hearing. I currently run everything out of my trusty Onkyo DP-X1. Disclaimer and Preferences: These are my honest thoughts and is how I hear things. Personally, my sonic preference is sound with a warmer tilt + non-fatiguing treble. Please note that impressions may change over time. Even things like my mood can change how I hear things. What will your content cover? I will usually write about my first impressions and thoughts on IEMs. I will also do coverage of what I've tried in audio festivals and conventions such as CanJam.
