Lypertek Z5 Review – Better

The Z5 faces tough competition, even internally from Lypertek’s own line-up however, to balance sound quality and lifestyle features with such aplomb must be recognised.  

Meze 109 Pro Review – Feedback Loop

The 109 Pro boasts market-leading comfort alongside a vibrant sound signature that doesn’t overstay its welcome but injects music with a joie de vivre that hooks upon first listen and continues to engage thereafter.

Audeze Euclid Review – Stepping it Up!

A decade ago, the prospect of squeezing Audeze’s full range of technologies in a compact in-ear form factor would have passed as an appropriate April fool’s joke. The Euclid offers a balanced sound with excellent listenability, imaging and definition.

Focal Bathys Review – Moving the Goal Posts

The Bathys offers excellent balance and great listenability on the foundation of a tight note presentation and extended, nuanced top-end. These qualities scale further with a wired connection and the tonality is just as charming whether ANC is on or off.

DITA Perpetua Review – Timeless

If you’re looking for a velvety sound that balances powerful bass with excellent midrange definition and timbre, the Perpetua is without equal.

Eletech Ode To Laura Review – Zenith

This isn’t a cable for treble-heads but if you enjoy a smooth yet articulate sound, you’d be hard pressed to find such a desirable design and mix of sonic qualities in a competing cable.

Thieaudio Elixir Review – Safe Ain’t Bad

Don’t let the lack of tuning or modular cable fool you, the Elixir is wonderfully charming right out of the box and very much in the same leagues as class leaders as an overall package.

Meze Audio ADVAR Review – Flow Formed

Backed by Meze’s venerable aesthetic and ergonomic design, the Advar is an excellent choice for those wanting an engaging U-shaped sound built atop a strong technical foundation.

Ovidius TX-901 Review – Beta Test

The TX-901 is an honest first try for the new brand that feels specifically designed for genres with minimal focus on vocals and I think this will be a deal breaker for many.

Effect Audio Axiom Review – All About Synergy

The Axiom is a serious, thought out product with a questionable pricing model. Its unique tuning and accomplished design mean it remains a competitive option if you already have a collection of cables on hand.
