2018 Awards – Year overview

A farewell to ears, from Nathan with love

By | December 17th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , |

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

I never though I’d charge out of the gate reviewing Dita’s The Answer. I never thought I’d follow it up doing the same with Jerry Harvey’s Roxanne.… Read the full article

Review: FiiO FB1 – off white

By | August 21st, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: FiiO sent me the FB1 directly. I paid nothing for it. The FB1 is an APTX-capable Wireless DAC/earphone which goes for 30$. You can find out all about it here: FiiO FB1 Wireless earphones.

I have the utmost respect for FiiO. They make great things. FiiO constantly push the boundaries of performance on the metric of price. Sometimes they make the best product in a broad genre. I recommend FiiO amps and DAPs to friends, comrades, and geeks from MD lovers to portable music enthusiasts, and anyone else looking for an upgrade to their current gear.… Read the full article
