  1. I have always said that - well at least as long as I can remember - that there is usually very little correlation between the price of a component and the sound quality derived from it. Sure, there's always exceptions; entry level components in particular are always built to a price point, not ultimate fidelity. That said, if you consider the jewelry like build quality of many top flight, expensive components on the market today, the case work alone consumes more than half the overall component budget and in many cases, even more than that... Alas, it's difficult to sway someone fr

  3. I haven't seen this review before - thanks for sharing... Clearly a more measurement centric review; in practice, leashed to the Auterpe, I didn't notice the 2khz peakiness in particular. Then again, I like the crisp, detailed sound the 3.2s deliver. As far as bass, the 3.2s obviously lack the punch of a sealed or over the ear design; that said, here too, I never felt as though it was lacking in bass overall... cheers!
  4. Thanks Chris!!! Fun project... these two components really "stole" my heart so to speak... old school charm = Auterpe, meets new world super tech = Mysphere... Cheers!
  5. R&R. No, not M&Ms. Renner and Ryback. If you are a headphone connoisseur, surely you will have heard of these two gents. You haven’t? Well then, here is a quick dive into history and just why these two clever Austrians are forever tied to headphones, ehem, ear speakers. You see, the story begins around 1989, when AKG, Akustische und Kino-Geräte [Acoustic and cinema systems] launched the most unusual looking headphones, the now famous K1000. Costing more than any other pair of headphones at the time, necessitating a dedicated loudspeaker amplifier (you connected them via the supplied sp
  6. it's genuinely fascinating the break-neck speed of development when you consider that I still remember the novelty of USB keyboards and mice! LOL! 🤣
  7. I listened to every one of these... absolutely fantastic project and series!
  8. the game changer here is Spatial Audio via Dolby Atmos for headphones. Lossless playback was a simply add-on that, given how complicated it is to playback, is not Apple's priority. Spatial audio playback via headphones - if the music is done right - forever removes the in your head feeling and actually makes someone like myself, who isn't all that much into headphones, listen to more music via headphones, preferably the ANC kind. PS: here is a link to my review on my new channel, SonicFlare: Apple Music now featuring Lossless and Spatial audio! *Dolby Atmos - YouTube
  9. Yes! The entire brush is serviceable...
  10. Lovely interview Chris, Chad is a treasure trove of stories and more stories... followed by even more stories. We - the community at large - really owe Chad a tremendous sense of gratitude for what he and his team do for us... they are the unsung heroes of this music business... everyone loves to complain about a record being late a day or three, when in reality we should be grateful that Chad is producing these amazing reissues for us to listen to ... Awesome stuff! PS: the KOB UHQR has just been released this morning............ w00t.
