Review – Empire Ears’ Legend X

SeeSax posted a review of the Legend X on Head-Fi.  Interestingly, this $2,299 IEM has seven drivers with a 10 way crossover configuration.  A bit unusual.  Read the review to see what SeeSax thought of them.

Pros – Bass of incredible control, depth and power, detailed and natural mids, articulate but smooth treble
Cons – Driver flex, case is tricky with larger cables

Ike1985 has a great review of the Zeus XR IEMs over on Head-Fi. Sound like some nice IEMs especially for vocals.

Pros – Smooth with high resolution, Unique 3D vocal effect, holographic stage, layering, separation and texture detail.

CanJam Singapore 2018 Review

Jude has posted his review of CanJam Singapore on Head-Fi.  As it typical at the Singapore event there will be great stuff to hear. Maybe I will bump into you as we try to hear the new Focal gear.

Jomo Audio Flamenco IEM Review

Ezekiel77 posted a review of the Flamenco 11 driver IEM over on Head-Fi.  From this and other reviews its performance doesn’t match its price point of around $2,300.  Plenty of other worthy competitors at and well under that price.

Pros – The final word in clarity, detail and resolution; class-leading imaging and separation capabilities; plays nice with bad recordings despite the level of detail, engaging and fun signature, musicality, flexibility in sound signature via switches.
Cons – Bass lacks genuine impact and slam, inadequate emotional resonance in the mids, smaller soundstage compared to others in the same tier.

HiFiMan RE2000 IEM Review

Twister6 posted a review of the HiFiMan’s RE2000 IEM over on Head-Fi. It is a single dynamic driver IEM priced at a flagship TOTL price ($2,000).  From the reviews it seems to compare well with IEMs priced in the $1,500 range.  While I do own some of the IEMs in this price range I would recommend steering clear of the IEMs over $1,000.  Unless weight and size are critical to you such as when my job required 100% travel, I would recommend purchasing a great pair of headphones and DAC/amp.

Pros – detailed hi-res sound, excellent bass response, wide soundstage, unique topology diaphragm tech, removable cable.
Cons – price, ergonomics of the design, eartip selection.
