Moondrop SSR (Super Spaceship Reference): They’ve Done It Again

Greetings! Today we’re checking out an earphone that I was very excited to receive, the SSR, or Super Spaceship Reference. That second S for ‘Spaceship’ is why I was so pumped to review the SSR. The original Spaceship was one of my favourite purchases in 2019 and served as a near perfect daily driver for my listening needs. Small, comfy, and with a level of … Continue reading Moondrop SSR (Super Spaceship Reference): They’ve Done It Again

Kinera Tyr: Mini Yet Monsterous

Greetings! Today we’re checking out Kinera’s entry into the competitive micro-driver segment, the Tyr. Kinera has been around for quite a while now and is no stranger to the Chinese hifi scene. Unlike a number of other brands, they aren’t prone to pumping out release after release, instead taking their time to craft something unique and interesting every time. Maybe not something that appeals to … Continue reading Kinera Tyr: Mini Yet Monsterous

Kinera Sif: Welcome To The Other Side

Greetings! Today we’re checking out the Kinera Sif, the Yang to Kinera’s Yin (SEED). Back in 2018 Kinera released the SEED (Yin), one of a two part iems series (Yin and Yang).

BGVP DMG: Six by Six

Greetings! Today we’re checking out an interesting new hybrid from BGVP, the DMG. I’ve had a bit of a checkered history with BGVP in that while I found their designs and build quality excellent for the most part, sound quality was never elevated much beyond average.

In Norse mythology, Idun was the goddess of rejuvenation, dispensing fruit that sustained immortality among the gods and goddesses of Asgard.
