KEF sold a lot of LS50s. KEF also sold a lot of LS50 wireless systems. Now the British brand is looking to jump even closer into mainstream sales figures with a smaller and significantly cheaper wireless system the clearly mimics the original inspiration of the clever coaxial-studio-montior-turned-hifi-beauty-queen.

Right off the batt its easy to tell that a unmistakable stroke of industrial design has been retrofitted to the overall look. The website touts a direct relationship is a product designer named Michael Young for credit on the color scheme accents and fabric wrapped changes from the previous 50s.… Read the full article

Review: FiiO BTR3 – one step forward, two steps back

By | October 25th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

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.

Not sound

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

Review: Litexim Aerobuds – wings of redemption

By | October 1st, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

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

The Fiio µBTR is one of Fiio’s latest units. Time to lake a closer look at the latest Fiio BT device, the µBTR!

Review: FiiO FB1 – off white

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

Review: Beyerdynamic Aventho Wireless

By | June 27th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: The Beyerdynamic Aventho Wireless was sent to us in exchange for our honest opinion, the sample is on loan.

Intro

I admit there haven’t been many wireless headphone reviews on Headfonia.com and I should really apologize for that. It’s Nathan who’s our wireless expert and fan and he mostly focuses on IEMs nowadays and so this category kind of doesn’t get covered as much. The rest of the crew is more into cabled gear.

You probably also noticed that we don’t review many on ear headphones either, so again, why now?… Read the full article
