The Vega 2020 offers splendid ergonomics and build combined with a rich and engaging yet coherent tuning built atop a strong technical foundation.
Clarity, sparkle, and a dynamic low-end. The T9iE is a fine choice in this segment.
The Rai Penta doesn’t awe the listener like most high-end IEMs, but gently eases them into a natural yet resolving sound that continues to reveal new details after hours and hours.
Plussound’s professional build quality and ultra compliant insulation realises a clean, controlled and detailed sound.
The Phantom is the daily flagship, free of fatigue and always hiding a new nuance in plain sight for the listener to discover.
Those looking for a warm, full-bodied sound without the muffle and congestion will find the Xelento versatile and TOTL in every regard.
It isn’t balanced, but Campfire Audio’s Atlas is undeniably an impressive and truly courageous creation executed with mastery.
For studio mixing, these may be the best headphones money can buy.
