Unique Melody's Maestro V2

Unique Melody reached out to me about a month ago, wanting to send me something for review. As mentioned in my impressions post, after a long discussion about my listening preferences and preferred sound signature, we landed on their newest flagship, the Maestro V2. With 12 drivers per side, it certainly has the specifications to match the likes of Noble Audio, 64Audio, and JH Audio in their flagship products.

Noble Audio's Kaiser Encore

I am so happy to have had the opportunity to spend this much time with Noble's new flagship, even though it was admittedly shorter than my usual time (simply because there's so many things on my desk right now). My initial listen to these headphones not purely representative of my whole experience, but how impressed I was has persisted.

Impressions: Unique Melody's Maestro V2

Unique Melody reached out to me a few weeks ago, wanting to send me something for review. After much discussion, most of which was figuring out which IEM of theirs fell in line with my listening preferences, we landed on their flagship, 12-driver per side UIEM, the Maestro V2. I took receipt of it today and, although there is a bunch for me to do right now, they've spent the remainder of their time in my possession in my ears.

Impressions: Noble's Kaiser Encore

Long after my review of the Dulce Bass, and long after those had been returned, Noble sent me their flagship IEM. 10 custom Knowle Balanced Armature drivers, with passive crossovers propel sound out of the triple-bored canal and into the ear. These really are an experience unto themselves, and I'll try to do justice to what I've heard over the past few hours in this impressions post.

iFi Pro iCan

This review has taken me much longer than average to get written out, and the reasons, I think, will be evident through reading it. This product is absolutely jam packed with features, and every single one is precisely, nigh-perfectly, executed. I give massive props to iFi for managing to put out something as rock-solid as this, given how new they are as a company. I think that this is phenomenal introduction to their "Pro" line, and I am very excited to see what else they put out under that title.

Purist Audio Design 30th Anniversary USB Cable

Here we go. I received this cable a couple months back. I made an impressions post a few days after I got it, detailing both USB as a standard, and my current experience with it. I received a little bit of backlash, both for a small clerical error I made, and some stating that the only thing I should have said was that cables don't change sound.
