Review of the LZ-A2S IEM

Peter123 has posted a review of the A2S IEM on Head-Fi.  It is a hybrid single BA with a 10mm dynamic driver.  Included in the review are a few comparisons with other Chinese IEMs including the original A2 (which I own and use frequently).  From the review it appears that the A2S is a marked improvement over the original A2, especially in the mids.

Summary:

Pros: Excellent build quality, easy to drive and fit, non-fatigueing and easy to enjoy siganture
Cons: Slightly soft bass, not the greatest soundstage width

64 AUDIO ADEL U12 IEM Review

Berkhan, who is a guest reviewer at Headfonia, has posted a review of the Adel U12.  The build of the U12 is quite up to the appearance and feel of the new Noble or JH IEMs but Berkhan believes there are no obvious durability issues.   The bass response is strong but according to Berkhan there are issues with the treble.  It instruments found in Jazz recordings sound artificial.  Berkhan has comparisons with various higher end IEMs so go read the review.

New Fostex TH-Xoo Ebony Headphones on Massdrop

Massdrop has announced a new ebony cup TH-Xoo headphone.  Jude has comments on the new ebony cup headphone over on Head-Fi.  The ebony will be priced at $500 which is $100 more than the mahogany released a month or so ago.  According the Jude, these are his favorite of the three flavors of the TH-X00 headphones (mahogany, purpleheart and ebony).  The purpleheart appears to be the most “fun” of the three with the ebony being the most neutral.  According to Massdrop, there has been no change in tuning of the TH-X00 between each three types and the only changes in sound is due to the different wood used in the cup.
