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.
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.
Ergonomics and build perform at the highest level and its sound is engaging yet tasteful, retaining overall balance. It is my pleasure to recommend the ONYX for those wanting an engaging midrange IEM.
The greatest accolade I can appoint the Volume is that it made me forget I was listening to a $285 earphone. It’s balanced, beautiful and technically accomplished across the board.
The Phoenix 6 is one of the most surprising and impressive IEMs I’ve reviewed as of late. I applaud Astrotec for their versatile, beautifully tuned and meticulously constructed flagship that represents a serious contender in the high-end space.
The KXXS-platform remains Moondrop’s most accessible product range to a wide range of consumers and the KATO is its best and most complete incarnation yet.
This is a beautifully formed, truly masterclass basshead-style IEM and while that means it falls behind market leaders in versatility, on tracks where it hits, be ready for a home run.
Oriveti’s updated flagship remains beautifully designed, smooth and coherent whilst introducing greater versatility than before.
The Falcon Pro strikes me as a forgiving and flexible in-ear and a good alternative for those that find the typical Harman IEM fatiguing or intense
If you don’t mind a laid-back midrange or a relative lack of treble extension, the FWX1’s highly textured notes and rich instrument timbre permit a sublime listening experience with classical, jazz and acoustic.
Should you enjoy a balanced and spacious sound with excellent control throughout, the Cerberus makes for a unique and immensely rewarding listen and continues to surprise after every hour of listening.
Combine a natural bass-boost sound tuning with effective ANC, stellar aware mode and call quality and this is surely one of the best all-rounders you’ll find in the sub-$100 price point.
If you’re looking for a premium TWS earphone purely for exercise, then the MW08S’ powerful sound, stable fit and effective ANC make it a good contender. However, the drop in sonic balance and finesse does make this a far more situational purchase than the MW08
If you enjoy an open, high-clarity sound and a powerful bass performance, the Bravery punches well above its weight.
The OH1s is a beautifully designed earphone with excellent build quality and a super svelte form factor. The sound has a unique character that will no doubt appeal to some but cannot be universally praised and recommended.
Like the ER-line before it, the EVO is intimate, hyper-responsive and oh so clean from bottom to top. Years later, the Etymotic sound remains hard come by and has plenty of life.
