Meze just launched a new high-end closed-back headphone using technology from their flagship Empyrean and Elite. Details inside!
Combining all day comfort and integrated coms with a balanced and spacious sound from essentially any source, it is hard to deny the versatility and value provided by the PC38X.
The WHP01K is one of the better choices if you want an affordable headphone with active noise-cancellation that still sounds decent, and value purchasing your gear from an authorised dealer with a full local warranty.
The D8000 Pro meticulously balances summit-fi technicality with an inviting, balanced and genre-flexible tonality that I haven’t yet heard in such equal measure.
Though its unique combination of qualities and thoughtful execution, the Phoenix is able to carve out a reasonably uncontested niche in the audio market for bass lovers who still value clear vocals and a spacious soundstage.
The LCD-X is an invaluable tool for those prioritising balance and authenticity – a headphone that doesn’t draw attention but rather places a spotlight on the style and colouration of elements surrounding it.
I applaud HEDD for perfectly balancing long-term listenability and huge resolving power in their modern masterpiece.
The LCD-1 provides a balance of qualities and conveniences unmatched by immediate competitors.
