This is Nathan’s farewell article, looking back at 4 years of writing for Headfonia. I’d like to thank Nathan for his dedication, great photography, humor and knowledge he’s shared with us. Headfonia wouldn’t be where we are today if it hadn’t been for Nathan. I wish him all the best for his future career. Make sure to leave him a comment! Lieven
In this article we’re looking at the Burson FUN.
Disclaimer: Burson directly sent Play, Bang, and Fun for the purposes of this review. I paid nothing for any single unit, and the upgraded op-amps came along with them. Fun is a powerful dual-mono Class-A amp that will blow your socks off for 299$ USD. You can find out all about it here: Burson Fun Headphone amp / pre-amp.
Burson’s staples: cost-effective mid to high end amps, active cables, their beautiful Timekeeper power amp series, DIY-inspired component sets, and of course their peck of discrete and proprietary high-end op-amp sets, some of which Headfonia have had the good fortune to test, are well known.… Read the full article
The NextDrive Spectra X is the newest of Nextrive’s DAC modules and it will be available on the market soon!
Disclaimer: NextDrive sent me Spectra X units to review here. They aren’t quite on the market, but should go on sale in the next weeks for around 190$ USD. X uses the same ESS SABRE 9018Q2C DAC, adds a bit of noise dumbing magic called Xtra Sound, among other advanced features. You can find out all about it here: Spectra X: Unleash the power of your sound.… Read the full article

The Fiio BTR3 is one of Fiio’s latest Bluetooth devices. Do we like it? Find out all about it now!
Disclaimer: FiiO supplied BTR3 for the purposes of this review. I paid nothing for it. It retails for 79$ and is driven by the AK4376A DAC and Qualcomm CR8675 Bluetooth receiver chip. You can find out all about it here: Portable High-Fidelity Bluetooth Amplifier-BTR3.
FiiO’s unrelenting production queue reminds me of nVidia in the late 90s, of which Tom’s Hardware asked: ‘are nVidia too fast for us?’ The difference is that FiiO are fighting a much larger, less proprietary rank of competing products and rivals.… Read the full article
Nathan looks at the rather unknown LiteXim Aerobuds, a budget Bluetooth fully wireless IEM
Disclaimer: LiteXim sent Aerobuds directly for the purposes of this review. Aerobuds are a single-driver Bluetooth earphone. They go for about 60$, are compatible with a host of wireless tech. You can find out all about them here: LiteXim Aerobuds Truely Wireless Earphones.
After a lot of reviewing – and more than a little fiddling – I consider 60$ more than adequate to manufacture, distribute, market, and sell a quality wireless earphone.… Read the full article
