CTM’s in-ear monitors are clearly tuned from the past and into the future

NEWS – One of the fun aspects of writing reviews and news items on audio gear is discovering companies with a passion for sound. I recently stumbled across Clear Tune Monitors and their Vintage Series of in-ear monitors (IEM) that blend a 50s hot-rod look with a modern flair. The monitor shells sport a retro …

Brainwavz Audio B200 dual balanced armature earphones review

Beyond simple classifications (over-ear, on-ear, in-ear) one tends to either really care about in-the-weed-level details, or generally be okay with what’s easily available. As a brand, Brainwavz Audio clearly falls into the former category as you can get lost in the specifications of their products. Let’s pull back the veil a bit and wade through …

Focal Spark and Spark Wireless earphone review

The more I review Focal earphones and headphones, the more impressed I become. Yeah, French speaker maker Focal makes outrageously priced products such as their $4,000 Utopia headphone—rated by many reviewers as the best headphone available today. But kudos to Focal for also offering affordable audio for the rest of us. Case in point: The …

Rock Jaw Resonate hybrid earphones review

The Resonate earphones are the third pair I’ve reviewed from the UK based Rock Jaw audio company. For the last few years, Rock Jaw has made quite good, yet inexpensive earphones almost anyone can afford.

RHA seals its audio reputation with three new products

It’s always fun to watch an audio startup grow up and upset the aural landscape. Reid Heath Ltd. (RHA) has been doing just that with good to great earphones.

Rock Jaw Audio Clarito earphones review

British audio company Rock Jaw’s Genus earphones impressed me not only with audio that sounded better than the price would indicate, but the Genus also offered a set of filters for the ultimate customization. However, as I’ve discovered with most earphones that come with filters—once you find one you like, that’s the one you stick …

Phiaton MS 300 BA earphones review

It seems that most gadgets, in general, are available at different price tiers. Speakers, quad-copters, cameras, pens, and tablets are all available from tens to thousands of dollars. The more costly versions of each will have better quality, provide more features, and perhaps provide the brand recognition that the consumer desires.  The characteristic quality, features and …

Scan Sound single ear stereo headphone and earphone review

I like to listen to music and podcasts through earphones or headphones while I’m at work, but when someone comes up to talk to me, they either startle me or I have to remove the earphones to hear them. My solution to this problem has been to put only one earphone in my ear and leave the other one …

Phiaton PS 202 NC noise canceling earphones review

Phiaton is one of those audio companies that constantly and consistently releases new models of interesting earphones and headphones. Just when you’ve gotten used to one headphone, it’s been discontinued and another has taken its place. Their headphones and earphones are also some of the prettiest designs available, although the earphone’s beauty is mostly hidden …

RBH EP-3 Sound Isolation Earphones review

When I want to listen to music, I prefer over-the-ear headphones, but those are not really a good fit when out and about. I’ve used both of Apple’s earbuds/pods that came with the iPhone’s I’ve owned over the years, plus many others, trying to find that sweet spot of durability, good sound, and sound isolation. …
