Church-boy by day and audio-obsessee by night, Daniel Lesmana’s world revolves around the rhythms and melodies we lovingly call: Music. When he’s not behind a console mixing live for a congregation of thousands, engineering records in a studio environment, or making noise behind a drum set, you’ll find him on his laptop analysing audio gear with fervor and glee. Now a specialist in custom IEMs, cables and full-sized headphones, he’s looking to bring his unique sensibilities - as both an enthusiast and a professional - into the reviewer’s space; a place where no man has gone before.
Armed with Bluetooth technology, a custom fit and the brand’s in-house tech, the Custom Art Go One shows how far bang-for-buck can go with a little effort, experience and ingenuity.

Four DDs, eight BAs and countless patents full, the Jolene is Jerry Harvey’s most ambitious, innovative and technically-impressive release to date; a true rockstar’s IEM.
With tia tech, Wave Sync and a semi-open apex chassis, 64 Audio’s clean, resolving, easy-sounding Duo delivers a much-needed jolt to the kilobuck category.
The five-driver VxV is FiR Audio’s take on the everyday carry; unassuming, easygoing, yet chock-full of the company’s signature, proprietary tech.
The Vision Ears VE7 delivers neutrality in one of its easiest, most listenable forms yet; soulful, big and with a tiny hint of swing.
Whether in 4-wire or 8-wire form, Satin Audio’s Athena brings a distinct shade of meatiness, vividness and speed, with upticks in control and finesse the more wires you add into the mix.
