    Beats UrBeats3 'Decade Collection' Earphone/IEM review

    Here's a little sleeper item - a $99 USD earphone (IEM) that few audiophiles would suspect of being a good listen. And it might be, with the right eartips. It definitely is with a good equalizer...

    Stereophile 'Earbuds' Souvenir IEM/Earphone review

    This is not my usual hi-fi headphone/earphone review, but given that this was a free subscription perk from a famous source, I thought it would interesting to see how much sound quality I'd get with it. (Spoiler: not much)...

    Thinksound USP1 (Pewter Earpiece) IEM/Earphone review.

    Here's a unique earphone with pewter earpieces. This design had me thinking (no pun intended) of Grado's porous-metal earcup housings that they use in some of their full-size headphones. The idea here is similar - to reduce resonances in the driver housings. U.S. made, the MSRP here is $179...

    Thinksound Ts03-plus In-Ear Wood-Earpiece IEM review

    This could have been just another IEM review, but it's a woody, it's a Thinksound, and to me the sound is as good as or better than the RHA T20i that I had. The sound is definitely V-shaped, and it has a one-button control box with microphone. MSRP is $119 USD...

    SoundMagic E10BT Bluetooth Earphone/IEM review

    I got this Bluetooth IEM thrown in with a wired headphone I purchased. This has to be the first time for me that the freebie was better (by far!) than the purchase. Oh, well... http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/soundmagic-e10bt-bluetooth-earphone-iem-review.4464/

    V-MODA Forza Sport Hybrid In-Ear (IEM) Stereo Earphone review

    And now the Forza Metallo's lower-cost brother, the Forza Sport Hybrid. Costing $30 USD less than the Metallo and featuring moisture resistance, you might not expect it to be made as well or sound as good. I found the great bass to be about the same with each, although down around 16 hz this...

    V-MODA Forza Metallo In-Ear (IEM) Stereo Earphone review

    I've reviewed IEM's before, ranking from "well worth consideration" to "among the very best". This v-moda Forza Metallo is in the latter category, and it's inexpensive (my favorite word)...

    Thinksound MS02/Rain3 In-Ear Wooden Stereo IEM/Earphone review

    I can't rave about these IEM's to the extent that I did with the on-ear On2, because I'm not a typical IEM user. In fact, I wasn't looking forward to doing a review on these because I don't like to do a half-hearted review. So I stared at them for a few days wondering whether to just give them...

    V-MODA 'Zn' In-Ear/Ear-Canal Stereo Earphone/IEM review

    Here's the perfect thing for an after-Thanksgiving purchase. A really, really good earphone, which BTW sounds a lot like the V-MODA M100 and Wireless. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/v-moda-zn-in-ear-ear-canal-earphone-iem-review.4313/

    Thinksound 'rain2' Wood-earpiece Stereo Earphone/IEM review

    Here's a really nice earphone - for once, a well-balanced sound from top to bottom. This is not a generic 'woodie', a few of which I've purchased myself that have a very choppy or uneven response. This is probably the best IEM I've heard below the Sennheiser IE800's price level. The link...
