Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro - You will never find the same

So, everyone is going for “customization” in these days, multiple colors to interchangeable headband, padding, sound etc… to make dull and boring headphones into colorful and fantasy design, make them become a fashion accessories instead of pure music enjoyment equipment. Heavily affected by beats by dre, most of the giants in the industry have paid more attention into this direction, and created products catering towards this market. 

And here goes the smart of Beyerdynamic, combine all the above features and put into one headphone named “Custom One Pro”. How is the performance? Will it just be another accessories jizz? Let see ourselves shall we?

Hippo Biscuit? Taste good with amazing sound!

Unique Music Player 

Music player had been a big hit many years ago, with the transition between music player and smartphone in current generation, tradition MP3 player seem quietly phase out of market.

Off course we have audiophile player such as from Hifiman, Colorfly or Cowon, but they never penetrate the market due to various reasons, people tend to look for convenient combination.

Thanks to Jaben loan me a product for review purpose, the Hippo Biscuit music player, which I found out it caters to a different way and market.

Beyerdynamic XP Series XP3

Hi guys,

whoever in Audiophile section, will know that beyerdynamic has been a great headphone manufacturer for past many years. They are the inventor of first dynamic headphone DT48, and continue innovate their technology into current Tesla system.

I always wonder why they never put attention into their IEM line, do they hate IEM? Or they are not expert in IEM design.
Don’t get me wrong, they do sell earphone, model such as DTX101, DTX71iE, MMX101 iE are selling well, but not as good as their headphone series, and people usually don’t recommend them as the “value for money”, “hot and great” compare with their headphone line.

So today, they popped out a brand new series, the “XP” series, not exactly sure what’s that mean, but I’m quite surprise by their design concept.
3 models with same price and design but different sound, it looks familiar that you can see in the market such as Superlux and V-sonic GR02 which going for multiple sounds, while XP series going for bass, balance and clear design.

I picked up a XP3 from Jaben, not too much of a bass fan, so I get the clear version for my liking.

Final Audio Piano Forte II - A short review


So sorry for the delay, I promised to have at least a review each week, but seem I broke it.
Today review will seem pretty unexpected, it was a free gift my friend when he bought a bundle set from Jaben Malaysia.

It’s from one of my favorite brand, Final Audio Design, Piano Forte II model. Surprisingly, this earbud is their cheapest model in product line, however Piano Forte series is their top end category.

I did have a quick go through on google for all relevant reviews, what I get was positive + negative impressions spreading around, so I decided to give it a go, considering myself recognize deep enough on final audio product signature.

Final Audio Heaven IV - The long awaited

Hi Everyone,

Finally as promised, I’m able to squeeze out some time for the first impression on Final Audio Design Heaven IV. The model is fairy new to the market, it shouldn’t be more than 4 months if I’m not wrong with the time period between announcement and launch.

This time it will be a model with their special tuned “BAM” driver technology instead of dynamic in adagio II and V, and it is the second cheapest model for BAM driver beside Adagio III.(Correction, it is actually a sound tuning mechanism, the BAM tuning actually is to reduce the unwanted air resonance inside the housing, and provide the most live sounding induced into the earphone.) I will give an explanation why I love this brand a lot, and willingly to do full range review for all their products in Conclusion.

All right, to cut long story short, let’s go straight to our standard review procedure.

The Mysterious Spring Biscuit

Who am i? I believe some people are wondering.

Why should we follow this site? Hold on…. Let’s make it simple shall we?

Well, be frank it is normal for people who have doubt, whether the creditability and reliability of a reviewer.

I myself wouldn’t consider a superb reviewer, I don’t provide long wall of text, I don’t show graph, I don’t do much comparisons.

I tend to keep things simple, makes the reading easily digest by everyone, it doesn’t matter the readers are audiophile, or people just finding a good pair of earphone without much background in headphone industry.

I try not to do comparison, because it basically generates one-sided feel, don’t you think?
I prefer reader to use my blog as an understanding of head/earphone sound signature, rather than pure “Which is the head/earphone best in the range of xxxx”.
I wouldn’t conclude A is better than B, everyone has their own taste of music and preference, and every earphone does have their own supporters.

What is my history then?

All right, I myself who played audio product (headphone & earphone) for the past 5 years.
On and off I do buy + sell to experience different types of head/earphone. Luckily, recently year I met a group of “audiophiles” who are obsessed with equipment, and I’m able to loan gears from them for personal enjoyment + Review usage.  

Happy ending aren’t we?

I don’t have a propensity to become top, but I like share my experience to everyone, whether are they accurate? Well, it’s my personal preference, what say you?

By the Way, Final Audio Design Review coming soon, stay tune!!!

The AIAIAI TMA-1 Studio, DJ and Studio? (Video)

I had tried AIAIAI TMA-1 DJ before, frankly they did a great job on fulfilling that name, the "DJ" series really able to perform well in track songs such as trance, techno, house and so on.

Brand popularity wise? Well they are famous across the region, however in Malaysia, i believe extra efforts can be added, only small amount people who obsessed with head/earphone will know them.

From DJ to Studio?
In my experience, Studio headphone usually related to "Flat" frequency respond, it's actually sort of an easy term to describe them E.g accurate, balance, uncoloured.
I wonder how will they sound in a pair of Non-studio ear.

Denon.. Tradition is no more

Denon Headphones are always one of my favourite, previous models such as D2000 headphone and C710 earphone are what make my music experience different. They have exquisite design, from the Wooden D7000 flagship till AHD1100, these are the one falls into my "luxury" line of choice.
No doubt, changes are inevitable, recently denon annouced their new 11 models featuring IOS app integration.
Mainly designed for different usage, such as sport, airplane, audiophile etc.... which pre-designed IOS software for each of them.
What do they do? have a look in here engadget

Final Audio Design Adagio V - The Unexpected

Hi Guys,

this is my second review on a new earphone, just in time that my friend is looking for a good earphone, I w
as recommend him to look for this Final Audio Design brand.

He loves detail, clarity type of earphone, and mostly enjoys vocal, acoustic music type.
And hey!! He picked a final audio adagio V!!

I didn’t expect this will happen, but well, i got his permission to loan the unit and do a review (Hope final audio design will pay me commission for this =P).

he did a intensive 100 hours burn in, which save up my time to do for him, so I can do a quick jock up what is the advantages/disadvantages in this earphone.

Final Audio Design Adagio II Review

Hi Everyone,

just want to have a share of experience with you guys about my recently new bought earphone, it’s from Final Audio Design Adagio II.

When I stumble across this brand from the audio store, it shocked me. “What the hell is this brand? I had never heard before”
*I was looking at Shure or Sennheiser that time after god knows how long on review reading.

I quickly do some research on the brand through internet, sadly not much information provided, and most of them are written in japs.

After some intensive couple of hours listening and comparing between Shure,Sennheiser, klipsch and  jays,  I finally play my bet and place money on the table for this new baby.

Well, I’m no pure audiophile music listener, so my music collection mostly on everything, modern pop, R&B, metal, acoustic, vocal, smooth jazz etc..  hopefully my review will be readable for everyone.

In this review I will be using Ipod Classic direct use with earphone, no EQ will be set as I want to keep the sound as original as possible.


First Time Blog

Hi everyone, this is my first time blogging, and hope my titles can create a new reference for everyone.
I will be posting review/impression about new audio product i tried in my audio journey, intensive testing and comparison will be posted, and hope whoever reading this blog can use this as a choosing guide.
