The Aurum has become a personal benchmark around its asking price and will likely remain so for some time to come.
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 Liric offers sound resolving power with tastefully executed colouration that makes for a fun and engaging listen whilst benefitting from Meze’s legendary comfort and craftsmanship.
Should you want for a comfortable open-back headphone with a hyper-detailed, achromatic sound, the LCD-5 deserves exclusive recommendation.
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.
Machined and weighted to perfection with a highly refined tuning devoid of peaks and dips, the Elite represents a triumph in high-end headphone design.
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.
Combining hugely impressive timbral accuracy with top-level resolution, the RS10 provides a sound that has surely secured itself as a benchmark for years to come.
If you enjoy a gorgeous, organic tonality and don’t mind a slightly laid-back midrange, the U6t is an auditory delight and a fully formed high-end IEM experience.
If you have the luxury of purchasing this cable, expect unmatched opulence and a listening experience accomplished in equal measure.
The M4 is one of the best in-ear monitors on the market for those that enjoy a clean, tactile sound and want enormous detail retrieval presented in a holographic manner.
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.
If you can stomach Final’s sound colouration alongside the substantial price tag, the A8000 provides extraordinary range and an effortless portrayal of music with agility that belies belief.
I applaud HEDD for perfectly balancing long-term listenability and huge resolving power in their modern masterpiece.
