Drop + JVC HA-FWX1 Review – Golden Hour

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.

Final D8000 Pro Review – Zen

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.

Soft Ears RS10 Review – Finesse

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.

Moondrop Variations Review – Indomitable

The Variations is a brilliant update to the venerable Blessing 2 that retains a strong sense of value even at its elevated price point through a combination of tonal refinement and technical accomplishment.

Fiio FD5 Review – Brazen

The FD5 is one of the strongest buys in its price class, especially for those wanting an earphone that is well-built, tastefully coloured and customisable on top.

Moondrop Aria Review – Reimagined

Moondrop’s latest earphone appends complaints with their former design whilst retaining benchmark level tonal refinement at a substantial price cut.

Oriveti O800 Review – Redefine

The O800 provides one of the most refined takes on a smooth and coherent sound signature I’ve experienced at far from prohibitive pricing.

Audeze LCD-X Review – Blast from the Past

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.
