Review of New Oriveti Primacy IEM

Dobrescu George posted an extensive review of the new Primacy in ear monitors over on Head-Fi.  The Primacy is another of the new hybrid trend with dual BA and single dynamic drivers. While there are comparisons with various IEMs I wish there was one with the well received 1-More hybrids since they are priced around 1/3 of the Primacy.

Pros – Smooth Sound, Build Quality, Soundstage Width, Excellent Travel Case, Well-Defined Bass, Non-Fatigue Treble, Natural Sound, Price
Cons – Minor Driver Flex for some people

Cowon Plenue R Digital Audio Player (PLA) Review

Twister6 posted a review of the Plenue R over on Head-Fi.  Twister6’s review is extensive and complete as always and the PR (Plenue R) sounds like a great mid-market product selling without the leather case for just under $500.

Pros – JetEffect 7, solid build, responsive touch-screen, neutral revealing tuning, customizable GUI (skins), 17hrs battery life, Bluetooth w/aptX, 128GB internal storage.
Cons – leather case is optional, power output more suitable for IEMs and efficient Full size.

ToneKing TO65 IEM Review

According to audio123’s review of the TO65 over on Head-Fi the IEM is “politely smooth” with its laid back treble (as compared to the TO150.  Like the TO150 the TO65 is a single dynamic driver earbud.  From one online market site it appears that the difference between the TO65, TO150 and TO200 is simply the impedance with the prices of all three within a few dollars of each other.

Pros – Smooth, Stage, Detachable Cable
Cons – More Extension
