Greetings! Today we’re checking out one of ddHiFi’s earphone and earbud upgrade cable options, the BC120B “Sky”. I’m not one to push cables for the purposes of sound improvement, instead opting to swap cables for comfort, durability, aesthetics, or simply to replace a broken stock cable. Cables included as part of a product’s standard kit are rarely the best a brand has to offer, often … Continue reading ddHiFi Sky (BC120B): Plush Candy Goodness
Greetings! Today we’re checking out the Form 1.1, an affordable hybrid earphone from Shozy. Last month I reviewed Shozy’s newest mid-range offering, the Form 1.4. At 199.00 USD it is a seriously impressive earphone bringing with it a classy, comfortable design and a hybrid driver setup that is bassy without sacrificing the midrange or treble quality or quantity. It has a wonderful sound stage, is … Continue reading Shozy Form 1.1: Fun IS Fun
Greetings! During the ‘before times’ of 2017, the Simgot EN700 Pro crossed my plate. Simgot was getting a ton of outstanding feedback for their products and the design of the EN700 Pro was so very eye catching. At the time I had been drooling over various orthodynamic headphones and the EN700 Pro strongly evoked them with it’s slatted face plates and ovular shell design. Plus, … Continue reading Head-to-Head: Moondrop Starfield vs. Simgot EN700 Pro

Greetings, Today we’re checking out a new earphone from HiFiMAN, the RE2000 Silver. In 2017 HiFiMAN stunned audiences with two new flagship earphones, the RE800 and RE2000.

Greetings! So, KZ’s newest armature-only earphone, the AS06, has arrived! Right off the bat I was pleased to see that one of my recommendations levied at the AS10 and BA10 has been addressed; the packaging. As you can see, it’s essentially the exact same thing, including the classy metal plaque, but smaller and less wasteful. It still makes the AS06 feel more special than lesser … Continue reading KZ AS06: Preview!

The A15, the A15 Pro Haydn, and now the A-HE03 Kylin. The Kylin is their first hybrid and at first glance it seems they’ve taken a positive path sourcing armatures form well-known manufacturer Knowles. If you’re going to … Continue reading Whizzer A-HE03 Kylin: Minnow
Greetings, Today we’re checking out the umpteenth Knowledge Zenith (KZ) released this year. It’s hard to get excited for a new KZ nowadays. Why? They release so many models in short periods, and there is a ton of overlap in specs and parts. Yet, somehow they continuously manage to refine, enhance, and in the end, impress. They impress me at least, this time with the … Continue reading KZ ZSN: $20 has never gone so far
Greetings, Today we’re checking out Knowledge Zenith’s (KZ) second balanced armature (BA) only offering, the BA10. The BA10 is KZ’s most expensive earphone to date and for some that is going to be a hurdle they just can’t surpass.

Greetings, Today we’re checking out the new AS10 from Knowledge Zenith (KZ). KZ has been dominating the hyper-budget market for years now, partly due to raw saturation, but also because many of their products are straight up good and worth your attention.

At this point, there isn’t much I can say about Knowledge Zenith that I haven’t already said in my numerous reviews and other coverage of their products.
