Review: iBasso IT04 – A Big Step

By | October 31st, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

We are finally looking at the iBasso’s flagship In Ear Monitor, the iBasso IT04, and it surely is a great step forward for the brand.

Disclaimer: The iBasso IT04 was sent to me by the company itself for this review and iBasso is not affiliated with Headfonia in any way. The official price for the IT04 is 499$. I did not receive the consumer box so I can’t comment on the package content. The Sony WM1A Walkman is the source used for sound evaluation. Read the full article

By | October 15th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Let’s check out the original Hibiki’s successor, the Shozy Hibiki MK2 in today’s review. The first one was a great budget IEM already, and it made it to our Universal IEM Recommendations.

Disclaimer: I received the Shozy Hibiki MK2 from Shozy directly for this review. It goes for around $65USD on the market.

INTRO

Around last year in November, I reviewed the original Shozy – AAW Hibiki and I was quite impressed. Particularly for its premium design language, good build for its price and the open sound that it presents.… Read the full article

Review: M-Fidelity SA-50 – Transparency

By | October 3rd, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

Let’s take a detailed look at the M-Fidelity SA-50, the flagship Custom In Ear Monitor from Norway.

Disclaimer: I received The M-Fidelity SA-50 from the manufacturer directly free of charge. I covered the expenses of shipping my impressions, and the customs taxes when I received the monitors. You can also check out my initial impressions HERE.

THE NEW SA-50

M-Fidelity is not a company that everyone has knowledge of in the market. Yet if you know the name, then you’ve probably heard about M-Fidelity with their previous flagship model first, the SA-43, which has 2 switches on its face plate for altering the sound.… Read the full article

INTRO

LZ HiFi had sent us a couple of nice monitors last year and one of them (the LZ A4) still keeps its place in our Universal IEM Recommendations. The other one was the Big Dipper and that one also left good impressions on me, with its changeable sound and fit.… Read the full article

Not too long ago, iBasso started to work on the IEM market. Yet, it’s been a swift and influential campaign. Their first model, the IT03 was great and impressive for a “first effort”. Unfortunately we couldn’t review that one before (thank you FedEx!!) but we managed to get the IT04 directly from Paul.… Read the full article

Canjam London 2018 – Intro

My first ever Canjam show happened in London last weekend, and because this was also my first ever trip to London, I enjoyed it more than you can imagine. Apart from hanging with Lieven around the streets of London and taking that beautiful picture above from The Shard, the show itself was also so great, that it made me wanting for more next year.… Read the full article
