Akoustyx R-115 IEM Review

Iemsonly posted a review of the R-115 IEMs on Head-Fi.  It is a single BA driver IEM and such has compromises as you can see from iemsonly’s summary:

Pros – Perfect bass, lush and intimate mids, super easy to drive.
Cons – Laidback treble, slightly coloured, not very detailed

At the $120 USD price point you have many options including the fantastic en700 Pro from Simgot.

Pros – Price
– Versatile
– Cable
Cons –  Source-sensitive
– Might be slightly large for some people

Review of the Bluewave GET Wireless Bluetooth HiFi Headphone Amplifier

Currawong posted a review of the Bluewave GET bluetooth portable receiver on Head-Fi.  He appears to like the product.  While I have not used this device I have acquired or trialled several other bluetooth portable receivers with mixed results.  Basically, these are a convenience play.  If you need to be wireless then these will work but they are bluetooth with all of its issues. This product supports all of the major protocols including AptX and AptX HD.  They are missing LDAC which is a new up and coming one.

My biggest problem here is the price.  At $99 – $129 you may want to think about simply investing in a good pair of wireless headphones.  But if you want your LCD-2’s to be portable this would work. Kinda.  It doesn’t have the power to drive anything more than the easiest to drive headphones.

Pros – Excellent sound for the money. Light. Alternative, position-adjustable clips very handy. Quick power-on. Sound quality-indicating LED. Can be paired with multiple devices. AAC, APTx and APTxHD supported.
Cons – Output power limited. USB input limited to 48k. Volume control fiddly and lacks position indicator.

Koss Porta Pro Wireless Bluetooth Review

Joe an admin at Head-Fi posted a review of the new wireless bluetooth Porta Pro from Koss.  He says that the sound image is the same as the wired model which is great. Also, Joe mentions that there are far less signal cut outs with the Porta Pro than other bluetooth headphones.  Priced at $79 it is a great value for a bluetooth device.

Simgot EN700 PRO Review

EagleWings has a nice review of the EN700 Pro IEMS on Head-Fi.  Since I own a pair of these earphones I can vouch for the comments in the review.  I find this dynamic driver  IEM to have a slight V presentation but nothing obnoxious.  I would say that these IEMs are musical and bass friendly.  I find that the bass in similarly priced (<$150) BA driver IEMS just don’t have sufficient bass for me.

I do own several well known IEMs in the $600-$2,500 range but I don’t take these out and about for fear something will happen to them so the  EN700 Pros are my go to earphones when out of the house and frequently when lounging at home.

Enjoy the review.

Pros – Balanced Tuning, Clear Sounding, Wide Soundstage, Controlled Yet Authoritative DD Bass
Cons – Can Get a Little Bright, Stage Lacks Depth
