Piksnz has a video review of the Fiio X7 on Head-Fi. He goes through the various capabilities of the X7 along with showing you the UI. I love seeing videos a UI in action since it is soooo difficult to clearly articulate how the UI functions in a written review.
As a bonus, Piksnz also compares the X7 with the Chord Mojo and the iPhone 6s.

Notaris posted a very detailed review of e-Q8 IEM on Head-Fi. It has an all silver voice coil. The driver is of a similar design as that of the Grado G8 and G10. Grado calls this a “moving armature” driver. Can’t wait to hear one of these.

Twister6 posted a review of the Fiio K1. The K1 is a budget USB DAC-amp at under $40. From the review it looks like the K1 is a very capable unit with comparisons to other DACs at many times it price.
HiFiChris has a review of the Titan 3 on Head-Fi. Included in the review is a comparison with the Titan 1 as well as Titan 5.
In summary, “Out of the Titan series, the Titan 3 is the most balanced sounding in-ear. It also has got a high resolution with a fast and punchy as well as arid bass and a convincing spatial presentation.
Here is actually really nothing to criticise from my side and the Titan 3 scores easy 5 out of 5 possible stars in my rating”

Jude over at Head-Fi just posted a video of the updated JH Audio Siren Series IEMs. Included in this video is the updated Layla, Angie and Roxanne. Unfortunately, Jude doesn’t provide side by side reviews with their prior versions since he just received the units. The new Rosie 6 driver IEM was also announced along with a small review from Jude. The Roxanne obtained an additional crossover standardizing the 10-12 driver models to a 4-way crossover. I assume the new Rosie is a 3-way since it only had three groups of drivers. The Layla now has a titanium housing will all of the other Sirens are made from aluminum. All of the models now have new cables made by Moon Audio. No discussion on any improvement to the SQ but the connectors have upgraded.
I state that this is an update and not an upgrade. The only changes on the Layla and Angie were the housing which I don’t feel is an upgrade. Since the audio travel through the same stainless steel waveguides the change in housing material should have little to no impact on the SQ. I suppose the additional crossover in the Roxanne might be an upgrade but we won’t know for sure until we receive some side by side comparisons.
