Dsnuts has posted a very nice review of the Echobox IEM – Finder X1 on Head-Fi. Dsnuts found that the X1 is very transparent and requires the wearer to listen to music at a moderate level or the inherent transparency can become fatiguing.
Peter Pialis over on Headphone.guru just posted a review of the Audeze LCD-4.
I don’t normally post Black Friday sales but if you are looking for a great IEM/CIEM then head over to Noble Audio. They have a 20% off through Sunday.
Nathan has just posted a review of the G10 on Headfonia. He liked the bass as compared to other IEMs he has.
Head-Fi has posted their 2015 holiday buying guide. You can find the link it below and happy buying 🙂
Dave on Headfonia just posted a review of the Alclair Curve.
HiFiChris has posted on Head-Fi a review of the Chord & Major 9’13 “Classical” and the Chord & Major 5’14 “World” IEMs. From the review they sound like nice all-rounder IEMS but lacking in the bass.
Lieven posted the first comprehensive written review of the new Sennheiser Orpheus on Headfonia. As with Jude over at Head-Fi, Lieven absolutely loved the new Orpheus. And, it is yours for only $55,000.
Dubstep Girl posted a review of the Noble 6C on Headphone. guru. From a sound quality perspective, this review also applies to the Noble 6U (universal).
The Jitterbug was recently reviewed by Lieven over on Headfonia. This is product is similar to Schiit’s Wyrd “USB decrapifier” but the Jitterbug is portable, uses the USB connection for power and is about half the price at $49.
The purpose of the Jitterbug and Wyrd is to stabilize jitter which can be present in USB data transfers along with reducing noise and other unwanted artifacts.
Will this make your music sound better? Here is Schiit’s statement on that question in relation to their Wyrd product, “Yes. Some listeners say Wyrd improves the sound of their system. We won’t make any such claim to sonic nirvana—sorry, creating expectation bias and neuro-lingustic programming ain’t something that we do. Sonic improvements are for you to decide. The rest of it—color printing and data stability—that’s like saying charging your iPhone off Wyrd makes the battery last longer. Have fun with that one.”
Ah, the honesty of those folks over at Schiit. Gotta love them.
