1MORE Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones Review

I reviewed the 1MORE MK802 wireless Bluetooth¬†headphone in July and was thoroughly impressed with its wireless sonic performance and remains my reference for sound quality from a Bluetooth headphone. The earcups just need to be a bit larger but otherwise, an incredibly fun and musical headphone. When I first took a look at the packaging…


Synergistic Research Atmosphere UEF Level 3 HC Power Cord & BLACK Quantum Fuse Review

When I first heard about Synergistic Research, terms like “Mad Scientists” and “Voodoo” came up in the discussion. A quick peek at their HFT acoustic dots and the Atmosphere XL4 and you’ll start to understand why.

Introduction Admittedly, I didn’t hear about the VOVOX products until I was searching for SOtM cables on High-End Audio PC and Crux Audio. There seems to be some implication of synergy between the two products but I didn’t think much of it. A few months ago,¬†J√ľrg Vogt, the founder of VOVOX, asked if I wanted…


Purist Audio Design Diamond Edition Dominus AC Power Cord Review

When you’re listening to an entire system, whether at a trade show or demo room at a shop, it’s difficult to isolate which component you’re actually hearing. One set of components, however, has a more weighted¬†and substantial impact on the overall sound. These are the power-related components. They unequivocally determine what the limitations are as…
