Marcusd reviewed IEM custom tips by the UK company Snugs and posted it on Headfonics. Custom tips are now beginning to hit mainstream IEM wearers. The custom tip gives universal wearers the ability to have a more custom fit than what they experience using universal tips such as those from Comply. Marcusd’s review goes through the process of ordering and using these tips.

Marcusd posted a review of the Jupiter IEM on Headfonics.
Review of the Jupiter
Paul has posted a review of FiiO’s M3 ultra portable DAP on Headfonia. This is a basic DAP with plays several of the standard lossless and lossy audio formats, has a great battery life and is cheap i.e. $55.
This would probably be a good entry level device but for another $40 you are in the X1 range. I think this would be a good workout or “thrasher” DAP. One which is so inexpensive that you don’t worry too much about throwing it around.
Paul concluded he would give the M3 somewhere between 60-70% star rating. Assuming that Fiio can smooth out some the wrinkles with the firmware, he could see the M3 becoming a classic over time.

Marcusd over on Headfonics posted a review of the Lear NS-U1. This is a dual dynamic driver IEM. It also has what Lear labels the Natrosound which is designed to mirror the effect of the sound signature of loudspeakers.

Marcusd along with Mike over at Headfonics just posted a thorough review of the Hifiman HE400s. It’s priced at only $299 which is incredible for this technology. However, Mike mentions that he doesn’t believe it should be in the HE family of headphones. Hit the link below to find out why.
