If you enjoy a warm, lush tonality with a nice analogue fuzz, the Cappuccino comes across as an authentic offering at an accessible price point.
This isn’t a cable for treble-heads but if you enjoy a smooth yet articulate sound, you’d be hard pressed to find such a desirable design and mix of sonic qualities in a competing cable.
Don’t let the lack of tuning or modular cable fool you, the Elixir is wonderfully charming right out of the box and very much in the same leagues as class leaders as an overall package.
If you don’t mind a bulkier cable design and enjoy a smooth, coherent sound, the Inferno is your best bet.
The S12 offers class-leading resolving power with a tuning that isn’t perfect but can easily be considered proficient with the right ear tip pairings.
The Aurum has become a personal benchmark around its asking price and will likely remain so for some time to come.
The EVO is a strong buy for those wanting a warm yet detailed TWS earphone with excellent ANC potency.
The TX-901 is an honest first try for the new brand that feels specifically designed for genres with minimal focus on vocals and I think this will be a deal breaker for many.
The experience at DD HiFi’s team shows in the refinement of the product despite working within a limited budget. The result is well priced, well made and well outfit.
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 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.
Superb all-day comfort and an attractive design makes this suitable for lovers of a rich, V-shaped sound with zero midrange intensity.
While Grado headphones have become more of a niche proposition, within this niche, they remain essentially unchallenged, and the RS-1x is the most Grado, Grado headphone yet.
The RAD-0 isn’t a headphone I can recommend for its versatility, but one that carves out a niche with a unique, highly technical sound that makes it unrivalled for select genres of music.
