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 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.
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.
If you enjoy a bright sound, then you’ll find the Starshine to be a technically outstanding EST implementation. For all else, proceed with caution.
The RSV is one of the most well-rounded and instantly likeable earphones I’ve tested, representing an excellent value proposition even at its elevated price tag.
Moondrop’s latest earphone appends complaints with their former design whilst retaining benchmark level tonal refinement at a substantial price cut.
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.
Little Dot provide another unique and highly competitive addition to the sub $1k price class. Don’t let the naming scheme or company’s lack of IEMs heritage concern you, the CK is surely a model with great appeal!
The Gae Bolg is a master craft for those wanting a highly coherent and immersive presentation, bulletproof build quality and visually striking design.
If you’re interested in a soothing sound for longer listening sessions, the Volans is a great example with a premium form factor and class-leading bass quality
