Astrotec Phoenix 6 Review – Maturity

The Phoenix 6 is one of the most surprising and impressive IEMs I’ve reviewed as of late. I applaud Astrotec for their versatile, beautifully tuned and meticulously constructed flagship that represents a serious contender in the high-end space.

Meze Audio Liric Review – Reframe

The Liric offers sound resolving power with tastefully executed colouration that makes for a fun and engaging listen whilst benefitting from Meze’s legendary comfort and craftsmanship.

Cayin RU6 Review – Oldschool Cool

Enthusiasts will be sure to enjoy the RU6’s wide stage and analogue-like note presentation that grant it one of the sweetest and most euphonic sounds I’ve encountered from a portable source yet.

Moondrop KATO review – Scion

The KXXS-platform remains Moondrop’s most accessible product range to a wide range of consumers and the KATO is its best and most complete incarnation yet.

MMR Balmung Review – Guilty Euphoria

This is a beautifully formed, truly masterclass basshead-style IEM and while that means it falls behind market leaders in versatility, on tracks where it hits, be ready for a home run.

Meze Elite Review – Triumph

Machined and weighted to perfection with a highly refined tuning devoid of peaks and dips, the Elite represents a triumph in high-end headphone design.

Drop + JVC HA-FWX1 Review – Golden Hour

If you don’t mind a laid-back midrange or a relative lack of treble extension, the FWX1’s highly textured notes and rich instrument timbre permit a sublime listening experience with classical, jazz and acoustic.

Final D8000 Pro Review – Zen

The D8000 Pro meticulously balances summit-fi technicality with an inviting, balanced and genre-flexible tonality that I haven’t yet heard in such equal measure.

Soft Ears RS10 Review – Finesse

Combining hugely impressive timbral accuracy with top-level resolution, the RS10 provides a sound that has surely secured itself as a benchmark for years to come.
