Picture Sunday – Shanling M2X

By | April 6th, 2019|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , |

Today, we look at Shanling’s latest addition, the M2X. A lighter version of the Shanling M5S with all the good things we loved previously.

Shanling M2X – The design

“Big things come in small packages”

The Shanling M2X leans more toward the M5S than the M2S, it’s basically a M5S in a smaller box. The overall design is almost identical, which is a good thing since the M5S was faultless in this aspect. It’s got the same aluminium case, sandwiched between two glass panels, like an iPhone X and it even comes with the leatherette case EMBEDDED !… Read the full article

NATHAN

2018 was full of excitement. And Headfonia got a bunch of new talent, meaning that I didn’t cover as much as I did in previous years. But I got lucky. By and large, I didn’t have to cover crap.… Read the full article

Review: Shanling M0 – Hello Beastie

By | September 5th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

We finally take a look at Shanling’s most popular toy recently, the Shanling M0. Check out how this little monster performs.

Disclaimer: We received the Shanling M0 directly from Shanling for the purpose of this review. I posted my initial impressions of it in the Picture Sunday post HERE. The Shanling M0 goes for 109$.

INTRO

Shanling has been making very impressive and sexy looking DAPs recently, yet this tiny monster is something else. We reviewed the Shanling M2s and M3s before, and the latter made it to our Portable Player Recommendations.… Read the full article

Picture Sunday: Shanling M0

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

Disclaimer: This is a Picture Sunday post where we share some very first impressions of equipment. Check out recent Picture Sunday posts HERE. Shanling M0 is a review sample directly from the company.

Shanling has made some very nice digital audio players lately. Yet I’m not sure it could get nicer and prettier than this one; the M0. As the model name suggests, this is the smallest Shanling DAP available. What makes it extremely sweet and sexy though, is the design language of Shanling that we loved from the other two DAPs they sent us.… Read the full article

Review: Shanling M3S – Perfectly Balanced

By | January 4th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: Just like with the M2S, Shanling M3s was sent as a review sample from Shanling directly. Thank you guys for working together with HFN.

INTRO

The “Tiny Musical Wonder” M2S review was posted on Headfonia around 5 months ago. Since then, Shanling released the Shanling M3s with an identical design but with more advanced features in terms of sound reproduction. I’ll try to reflect the device’s performance truthfully as much as I can.

DESIGN & BUILD

The Shanling M3S is exactly the same with M2S in terms of design.… Read the full article

Review: Shanling M2S – Tiny Musical Wonder

By | August 3rd, 2017|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: The Shanling M2S was sent me directly by Shanling for this review. The price is 199 USD and it has 3 color options; black, blue and red. I compared the M2S with Cayin N3 many times in the text. You can check out Lieven’s review on N3 to have some idea about these 2 entry-level players.

INTRO

Shanling has become quite renowned as of late and we see their audio players on Head-Fi and other platforms. Their DAPs receive praises all over the forums and here we go with their latest player, Shanling M2S.… Read the full article
