Review of IEM Custom Tips by Snugs

Marcusd reviewed IEM custom tips by the UK company Snugs and posted it on Headfonics.  Custom tips are now beginning to hit mainstream IEM wearers.  The custom tip gives universal wearers the ability to have a more custom fit than what they experience using universal tips such as those from Comply.  Marcusd’s review goes through the process of ordering and using these tips.

The FiiO M3 Mini DAP

Paul has posted a review of FiiO’s M3 ultra portable DAP on Headfonia. This is a basic DAP with plays several of the standard lossless and lossy audio formats, has a great battery life and is cheap i.e. $55.

This would probably be a good entry level device but for another $40 you are in the X1 range.  I think this would be a good workout or “thrasher” DAP.  One which is so inexpensive that you don’t worry too much about throwing it around.

Paul concluded he would give the M3 somewhere between 60-70% star rating. Assuming that Fiio can smooth out some the wrinkles with the firmware, he could see the M3 becoming a classic over time.

The Chair

Once you build your audiophile setup you need a place to sit and enjoy it.  The “chair”.  Others might laugh but the chair can be nearly as important as some elements of your audio stack.  Who can sit and listen to blissful music while being uncomfortable in a hot and awkward chair?  Michael Piskor over at Headfonics posted an article around finding the perfect chair.  I use an old well worn and extremely comfortable reclining Murphy chair myself.  My rule of thumb is if you can sit in the chair for at least an hour and still be comfortable and cool then you likely have found your audiophile chair.  Falling asleep in the chair is also a good indicator 🙂

Enjoy the read.
