Twister6 Audio REVIEW index - the past, the present, and the future

Oct 6, 2013
It has been quite a journey for me since I started to post and to share my Audio reviews in Head-fi community. Some of you might know me from XDA-Developers (under Vectron Reviews) or AndroidForums (under Twister6 Reviews) communities where I have reviewed lots of audio products, smartphone accessories, and other gadgets. When it comes to audio reviews, joining Head-fi was one of the most exciting experiences since there is no other place on the web where you have so many audio enthusiast come together from around the world to discuss their passion for sound. I have been very proud to be a Head-fier and hope to continue with a lot more reviews! ... And even so I started my own Twister6 Review Site, I still continue to mirror/share my reviews on HF.

Here is an Index of my work posted on Head-fi. I will continue updating it with latest reviews listed at the top of each corresponding section. Also, in the 2nd post, I will keep you informed about upcoming reviews. Since I get a lot of PMs with people asking me about my previous write ups or what's coming up next, I figured such index will be helpful. Feel free to post your questions, comments, and suggestions.

One additional thing I would like to add, with HF moving to a new forum platform, the format of my old reviews prior to April of 2017 will look a little off because I used to resize images and place them two in a row to be more compact. In a new forum my review images are displayed one underneath of the other, sometimes without space separation and without original alignment.

... and after 2020 forum update, some of the older links don't work as well since link format has changed. Thus, you might have to search Head-gear database for my older reviews if you can't get there directly from the links below.
