  1. Ostensibly the same edition as my previous purchase in matte black, I ordered the white version with custom "Immortal Angel" shields for a few reasons - to test the codecs against the black version, check for sample differences and add a new video, and run the music tests with my standard set of tracks instead of EDM only. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/v-moda-wireless-2-codex-headphone-white-customized-followup-review.4532/
  2. The NightOwl has great potential in having tonality superior to most non-premium or non-audiophile headphones, but the frequency response tuning needs a good bit of tweaking... http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/audioquest-nightowl-audiophile-stereo-headphone-review.4528/
  3. This is not my usual hi-fi headphone/earphone review, but given that this was a free subscription perk from a famous source, I thought it would interesting to see how much sound quality I'd get with it. (Spoiler: not much). http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/stereophile-souvenir-earbuds-iem-earphone-review.4526/
  4. The Shinola Canfield On-Ear is a small headphone of very modest sonic quality, but with an awesome aesthetic and build quality. I report the sound with a moderate level of EQ tweaking, and it is excellent. Some audiophiles don't believe that EQ will make a headphone sound better, which is all the better - just play it flat and imagine the sound that I describe ..... and it looks really great. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/shinola-canfield-on-ear-stereo-headphone-review.4525/
  5. This recent model from Focal was supposed to replace the Focal Spirit Pro as far as I know. Physically I'd agree - the Listen Pro is much nicer in that respect, but sonically no.... http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/focal-listen-pro-stereo-headphone-review.4523/
  6. Here's a unique earphone with pewter earpieces. This design had me thinking (no pun intended) of Grado's porous-metal earcup housings that they use in some of their full-size headphones. The idea here is similar - to reduce resonances in the driver housings. U.S. made, the MSRP here is $179, but I don't know at this time what the international availability will be. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/thinksound-usp1-pewter-earpiece-iem-earphone-review.4518/
  7. This German Maestro GMP-160 is, in terms of materials and construction, by far the cheapest headphone I've ever owned. Nonetheless, with some treble reduction**, the sound is surprisingly good. Even the Tutt-Keltner drum improvisation is sharp and detailed. The question I have is whether the paper earpads and earcup-stuffers will last more than a couple of months. **It's not only bright, but maintains that brightness to 10 khz and above, whereas most low-budget headphones roll off quickly in the upper treble. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/german-maestro-gmp-160-lightweight-stereo-headphone-review.4459/
  8. Just a small excerpt from the below review: "This is a beautifully-made headphone with sound that for most users will be thrilling, in a word. I have a recording of a 16 hz organ pedal from the Kellogg Auditorium, which not only plays with serious impact on the Vento, but the 16-cycle analog "beats" are clearly audible. That kind of deep-bass detail is rare for most larger headphones, but unheard of (small pun) in this class." http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/soundmagic-p55-vento-portable-stereo-headphone-review.4458/
  9. The lowest-price full-size B&O Bluetooth headphone is much better than I expected it to be. I paid $300 USD for this gem, and it's so good that I have no desire to buy the more pricy models they sell. Works great on Bluetooth, and it can be used wired with a good DAC and headphone amp. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/b-o-bang-olufsen-h4-bluetooth-stereo-headphone-review.4447/
  10. This is an IEM that sounds about as good, or in some cases better, than the better IEM's that I've owned, from the RHA T20i to the Sennheiser IE800 to the Final Audio FI-BA-SS. The fact that it's Bluetooth (Qualcomm aptX) is quite a plus, although for absolute fidelity of high resolution tracks, the aptX Bluetooth rules apply. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/v-moda-forza-metallo-wireless-bluetooth-in-ear-iem-earphone-review.4444/
  11. The latest version of one of my all-time favorite headphones (v-moda M100, "King of Headphones") has returned as v-moda's second edition Bluetooth model, called (wait for it...) the Wireless 2. Simply stated, this is the best headphone they've ever made (in my opinion), playing with the same sound wireless or wired. The biggest change from the M100** besides Bluetooth is moving the strongest bass from slightly above 100 hz to below 100 hz, for much better impact and detail. The bass doesn't sound as strong as the M100, until you fire up some EDM and feel the difference. There are 2 versions with different Bluetooth codecs. **The Wireless-1 does not have the folding hinges, but the Wireless-2 does. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/v-moda-wireless-2-bluetooth-aptx-stereo-headphone-review.4443/
  12. Here's a unique little speaker, if you can believe unique in an extremely crowded field. It's a goodie. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/v-moda-remix-hi-fi-bluetooth-speaker.4437/
  13. It was my good luck to get another Audio-Technica headphone for review this month, on loan from MyMac for a couple of weeks. To be honest, I like most headphones I do get, since I choose only those that interest me. That said though, this A1000z is one of the better bets in a more-or-less neutral 'monitor' headphone, and I commented after the review that the only headphones I've had that are comparable in the A1000z's price range are the MrSpeakers Mad Dog and the AKG K712 (albeit they don't sound quite as neutral). I think the cheaper AKG K553 Massdrop edition was nearly as good as these, and probably the best bargain. http://www.mymac.com/2017/01/audio-technica-ath-a1000z-art-monitor-headphones-review/
  14. Listening to the $350 Audio-Technica ESW990h wood-earcup headphone has been my most pleasurable hi-fi experience in a long time. The $1000 Focal Elear could have been even better if it weren't so recessed. Even though the ESW990h doesn't have quite the Elear's detail (when the Elear is EQ'd), the overall accuracy of musical tone puts the ESW990h in that rare category of mine - headphones that sound right, right out of the box. http://www.mymac.com/2017/01/ath-esw990h-portable-wooden-on-ear-headphones-review/
  15. Here's the Elear - for my purposes, the best sound I've heard, but your mileage may vary according to your treble preferences and which amp you use. Due to the large impedance spike around 40-50 hz, the power demand could weaken the deep bass somewhat, if your amp isn't up to it. The $1000 price is a lot, but the build quality and sound quality make it a keeper for me. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/focal-elear-around-ear-open-back-stereo-headphone-review.4415/
  16. Here is a very, very nice on-ear wood-earcup headphone from Thinksound. I previously reviewed their On1 headphone and Rain2 IEM. This time around, the On2 has a much better non-glossy wood finish, and I suspect better drivers, since the clarity is phenomenal. It isn't the easiest thing to have mellow sound with great clarity, so there ya go. http://www.mymac.com/2016/10/on2-headphones-review/
  17. Here's a portable music player that sounds like the best combination of DAC and tube amp that I've heard. It's not cheap, but the sound is ultra-clean, smooth, and very extended. http://www.headfonia.com/review-acoustic-research-m2-dap/
  18. Here is a real treat. The best overall sound I've gotten in an off-the-shelf headphone in a long time. Worth reading about: http://www.mymac.com/2016/09/1more-mk802-bluetooth-wireless-or-wired-stereo-headphone-detailed-review/
  19. Here is the best Bluetooth headphone I've used so far, and at just over $100 USD, an excellent deal. http://www.mymac.com/2016/04/puro-bt-5200-bluetooth-stereo-headphone-review/#more-21214
  20. Almost identical to the Yuin PK2, except this PK1 is even thinner sounding than the PK2, and is 3 times the price. EQ can bring a measure of audiophile quality to the sound, but cannot recover the low bass. I like it, but I'm pretty flexible. http://rockgrotto.proboards.com/thread/11090/audiophile-stereo-earbud-earphone-review
  21. The MH30 is a work of art and metal, and I find it very charming... http://rockgrotto.proboards.com/thread/11087/master-dynamic-luxury-stereo-headphone
  22. This is an earbud, so the expectations will be low. The tonality is definitely better than the Apple earbuds (not earpods), but not as good as the Yuin PK2 (and likely the PK1). I wouldn't be inclined to review an earbud as-is, but with the magic of parametric EQ, it sounds very hi-fi except for the deep bass, which can't be recovered any way that I know. http://rockgrotto.proboards.com/thread/11081/fiio-em3-stereo-earbuds-review
  23. Here is a very nice earbud with a good hi-fi sound and soundstage, when properly equalized. Played without EQ, it's bright and very thin sounding. Why would anyone want this? Low cost, great potential, very small size to go anywhere. One of my favorites... http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/yuin-pk2-earbuds-not-ear-canal-stereo-earphone-review.4349/
  24. Here's a very small on-ear headphone you can probably enjoy with no need for bass, treble, or any other adjustments. $19 USD - ridiculously good - say no more.... http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/meelectronics-ht-21-on-ear-portable-stereo-headphone-review.4348/
  25. Here's a headphone I had on my wishlist for ages, but if I knew how it really sounded, I could have skipped it. Anyway, here it is, for better or worse: http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/creative-aurvana-live-around-ear-stereo-headphone-review.4347/
