Review of JH Audio’s New Layla AION IEM

Jude posted a video review of JH Audio’s latest iteration of their 12 BA driver 4 crossover Layla IEM.   In this iteration, they are using 3D printing to create the audio channels rather than discrete tubing as in the original versions.  This reduces the size of the IEM down to a manageable size as many folks didn’t like the size of the prior models.  Personally, I don’t have an issue with the size of my Gen 1 Laylas but I also do use them as my mobile IEM.  Additionally, one has to assume the new manufacturing process significantly reduces the labor necessary to build them.  It will be interesting to see graphs on the audio performance of the 3D printed channels versus the individual tubing.  Enjoy the video review below.

Review of the Aurender A30

The Computer Audiophile has a full review of the Aurender A30 digital music server over on Audiophilesyle.com.  Okay, this is out of my normal listing of mobile music devices reviews and affordable prices.  The Aurender A30 comes in at around $18,000 USD.  But, it is always fun to read great reviews of awesome gear from time to time.  Maybe, we will be able to take a listen of this device at an upcoming meet.

Review of the Cayin N6ii DAP with a Replaceable Audio Motherboard

Twister6 has a review of the Cayin N6ii digital audio player over on Head-Fi.  The cool trick with this DAP is that it has replaceable DAC/AMP circuitry.  The circuitry is on a motherboard (they should be calling it a daughterboard) which is removable from the top of the player.  The remaining components such as the motherboard and battery are all static and are fixed in the case.  This actually reminds me of my old HP 41c calculator of days long past.  This is an intriguing concept and I will be interested in seeing where it leads.

Review of the Fearless Audio S10 IEM

LMka has a review of the Fearless Audio S10 IEMs on Head-Fi.  This is a 10 balanced armature driver setup in a 4-way crossover configuration.

Pros – Balanced sound, wide sound field, detailed yet smooth, sweet vocals, non fatiguing yet revealing, tight textured bass.
Cons – Quality control issues on Fearless side, some may prefer a thicker sound signature
