Master & Dynamic MW60 Wireless Headphones Review

March 29, 2016 § Leave a comment

” Bass extends moderately low with decent decay and slam. However, it should be noted that this is not the headphone for bassheads who require authority and deep reaching lows to satisfy their cravings. Instead, the mid-bass is relatively extensive employing good articulacy and rumble. The sub-bass, however, is not as extensive which was evident in Three 6 Mafia’s “Late Nite Tip” where the sub-bass rumble did not deliver as much presence or heft as the V-Moda Crossfade M100s. To its credit, however, the bass was neatly kept in check without ever becoming distorted or downright messy. Like the MH40, the MH60 has a respectable decay to its bass. However, it does succumb to both the Fostex TH500RP and HiFiMAN HE-400 in sheer tautness and decay speeds.”

SHURE KSE1500 ELECTROSTATIC SOUND ISOLATING EARPHONES $3,000 REVIEW

March 29, 2016 § Leave a comment

” Shure isn’t the first to the punch here, but squeezing electrostatic technology into a fully self-contained package of this shape and size is tantamount to cramming a rocket thruster under the hood of a ‘97 Honda Accord. And while the KSE1500 are priced for only the most ardent audiophiles, any headphone lover can appreciate their sonic achievements. The 1500 unearth a sound marked by unparalleled clarity and transient response above, while coaxing rich and ruddy layers of velvety warmth down below, placing these ‘phones among the most elite performers we’ve ever heard.”

Ultimate Ears Pro Reference Remastered $1,100 Review

“Audiophiles seeking an unmolested sound in their music will find the UERR’s flat sound signature a godsend in the world of products that claim to be “hear what the artist intended.” The spellbinding voice of early David Bowie captured in his Live Santa Monica ’72 album had me planted in the listening chair throughout the entire album. The expanded soundstage and non-fatiguing sound make me quickly forget that I’m listening to reproduced sound. I feel transported to 1972 in the audience at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. The UERR is so comfortable, it leaves me immersed in the sound. With every use, my ears become accustomed to its flat and balanced sound signature. ”

VERISONIX N501 ELECTROSTATZ ELECTED – REVIEW

March 28, 2016 § Leave a comment

” The N501 punches fast, but certainly not heavy. Lows decay almost instantly, leaving loads of room around each note, for a good sense of low-end space. But there is nary a throb nor a yawn. Sure, it will reveal sub-bass test signals, but when juxtaposed against real life music, it hits and fades before you’ll realise it.”

TECHNICS SU-C700 INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER REVIEW

March 27, 2016 § Leave a comment

” As nice as the amplifier/speaker pairing was, I was somewhat surprised that the ST C-700 network audio player probably left the biggest impression on me. I really thought of it initially as more of a convenience add-on, but its internal digital processing made it so much more than that. Outside of the unit going into standby automatically as I mentioned before, the Bluetooth capabilities were flawless. Even limited to streaming Redbook resolution material, I was immensely impressed by the sonic effects of the ST C-700. I don’t know how to best describe what I was hearing, but it was definitely less audiophile and more musical.”

CHORD ELECTRONICS MOJO HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER/DAC REVIEW

” Paying homage to traditional Chord styling and their token port hole, free spinning clear acrylic balls allow for input selection as well as volume control. Lit up in various colours you’ll need to familiarise yourself with, they indicate bitrate and volume level, and they’re a welcome inclusion.”
