With a nod to the influence of magnesium on improved resolution and resonance rejection, Audeze’s new LCD-i3 planar-magnetic IEM adopts the housing and grille design of its big brother the $2,495 USD LCD-i4 and with a nod to the present/future it also packs a Bluetooth wireless module in – all for just $899 USD.

I recently attended Summer NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) in Nashville, Tennessee. NAMM may be an unfamiliar name to you – it's a professional audio and music equipment convention, not consumer. And while the music industry has its own issues, if you want to see more diverse crowds, go to the pro-audio world. What you’ll also find in the pro-audio world is a lot of discussion about music, gear and audio that is friendly and open, even when people are disagreeing.

When I was just starting in the hobby one of the early headphones I aspired to own was the HiifiMan HE-400. I never did own one, but I recall being enchanted with it.

Ask any chef and they’ll tell you ingredients are key to a recipe being palatable. They’ll also tell you that it’s what you do with those ingredients and the measure of each used that makes a recipe go from being palatable to memorable. If you substitute technology for ingredients and electro-acoustical engineer for chef, then you start to get where I’m going with all this.

Tube designs have always been a staple of Manley Labs. Now with the launch of a new hifi-focused line of products, the first unit off the bench for the pro-side leaning company is the Absolute headphone amplifier.

This is more of a mini-review than a full-fledged review, the reason being that Drop often revises and adjusts products based on community feedback. Consider this more of a sonic-preview of what you can expect form the first run.

Separates. Everyone loves dedicated components in theory, but many people don't have the money or the space or even the need to isolate each individual piece of the chain.
