Jude has a video review on Head-Fi of the new Schiit Jotunheim amp w/optional DAC module. It sounds like a wonderful option! Especially with the price just under $500 with the DAC module. Once it is upgraded with a multi-bit DAC module I will jump on this.

Mark2410 has a comprehensive review of the HD668 headphones on Head-Fi. With a bit of equalization to tone down the highs these are bad headphones. Especially with a price tag of under $50.
Aornic posted nice reviews of products from CanJam London 2016 over on Head-Fi. Included are videos of various vendor interviews.

Sound Eq posted a review of the Zeus R IEMs on Head-Fi. Unfortunately, with bold statements such as “The Zeus R is the King of all iems, it does everything to perfection” included in the review you will need to take Sound Eq’s conclusions with a grain of salt. While the statements might be true, Sound Eq has not compare against the likes of Noble or JH totl IEMS. Actually, I would disregard the conclusion and only read the listening experience portion of the review.
Pros: amazing mids, highs and controlled bass. Great sound stage. Best sound signature I heard coming from any iem
Cons: none, how on earth can anything get better than Zeus R
Review of Zeus R IEM
I’ve started traveling extensively again for work and began looking for bluetooth and bluetooth/noise cancelling headphones. I have an older Bose QC noise cancelling which does a great job cancelling jet noise but my musical requirements of a headphone have increased since I purchased these 5 years ago and they no longer satisfy me. Actually, they are pretty poor. After reading various recommendations I created a short list and started to listen to them. Here is a review of the Sony MDR-1ABT headphones. Not only do they sound great but they also have LDAC implemented. In short, LDAC is a Sony protocol which provides greater wireless bandwidth between a bluetooth source and the headphone. I’m only aware of it Sony headphones using it and I have paired the 1ABT to my Sony Z2 which also is LDAC enabled. The difference between ABT and LDAC is noticeable. I picked up a used pair from Amazon for $270.
Mike Lowe has a review of these headphones on Pocket-Lint. Below is a link to his review.
Pros: Excellent sound quality throughout the frequency range, large and comfortable earcups good for extended listening sessions
Cons: They’re a bit too big and slip, Bluetooth version almost doubles the price tag of MDR-1A, Bluetooth playback much quieter
