Event coverage post has been made by ALO Audio over on Head-Fi. Someday I might get an opportunity to attend.
Hisoundfi on Head-Fi posted a review of the Venture Electronics’ Duke IEM. Priced at just under $200 it sounds like a nice IEM with some issues with sub-bass and extended treble. In summary:
Pros: Entertaining and natural sounding, Fantastically tuned and dynamic midrange, Great fitting earphone, Good isolation
Cons: Lack of sub bass extension will be an issue for some listeners, Treble will be too emphasised and harsh for some people
thatBeatsguy over at Head-Fi just posted a review of the Xiaomi Pistons 3.0. In summary:
Pros: An incredibly versatile package at its price point.
Cons: None considering the price.
The price is ~$16

Jude posted on Head-Fi an announcement of a update to the venerable HD800. According the Axel Grell, “The HD800S is an improved version of the HD800. It has an acoustical absorber like the IE 800, and as a result the frequency response that is more extended, but smoother–fewer peaks. Also, the low-bass is also more extended–not necessarily more bass, but deeper extension”
