Meze Rai Penta vs Sony IER-M9 Review

I haven’t listened to the Sony REI-M9 in a while. And given how popular the Meze Rai Penta is becoming, I thought it would be an interesting comparison. Actually, the truth is I have nothing to do today and the bar doesn’t open till noon. So, I thought, why not. Much has already been written about both of these IEMs. So, this review is for those who are already acquainted with at least one of...

The White Headphone by Grado Review

Have you ever been so moved by a song or a record that you practically named your dog after it?

This week I got a chance to spend some quality time with The White Headphone by Grado (technically called the WH1). So how does it sound, and will you like them? Let’s take a...

Kinera Odin IEM Review

I quickly became a fan of this little company ever since I listened to their humbly priced Idun. Given the Idun's handsome looks, solid build, great fit, and fantastic sound for the price, I was particularly curious to see what they could offer in the higher echelon. At 800 bucks, the Odin is priced just below some of the heavy hitters out there, like the Shure SE846 and Campfire Andromeda. Can it compete with the...

Kinera Bd005 Sport Earphone Review

Man, I wish I had discovered Kinera’s Bd005 yesterday, on July 4th. I could have worn these red and blue earbuds at the beach to compliment my star spangled bikini. But that’s neither here nor there. I’ve been listening to a lot of Kinera’s earbuds recently, and there’s no question that the company offers a great bang for your buck. So, I was curious about what Kinera could do with its most affordable model, the...

Kinera Idun Review

This week, I got a chance to spend some quality time with a brand I’d never tried before. It’s newest model, the Kinera Idun, is a follow-up from their previous model, the H3. Kinera took the notes for their customers, and created a new and improved IEM. But at $139, what can you expect from the Idun. Let’s take a closer look with this Kinera Idun Review!

Power and Clarity – Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC Review

I have been waiting to get my hands on the Beyerdynamic Lagoon ANC for a while now! And finally, this week I got a chance to try them out!

Final Audio B1 Review

I’ve been waiting patiently for the Final Audio B Series, and finally, it is my lucky day! This week I got a chance to spend some quality time with the Final Audio B1!

Final Audio B2 Review

Final Audio has introduced its B Series line-up, which includes the B1, B2 and B3. And the model numbers are a little misleading; unlike the name suggests, the B2 employs a single balanced armature driver, and it’s the most affordable model in the B Series. At $299, what can we expect from these unique looking buds? Let’s take a closer look in this Final Audio B2 Review. Final Audio B2 Review IN the BOX FIT...
