Campfire Audio's Comet

It’s always a pleasure for me to receive an email from Campfire Audio. This time, they sent over a pair of their newest IEMs, the Comet. They fall in CA’s more modest price-range, around $200. The last headphones I reviewed from them were their $800 Cascade which, while one of my favorite headphones of all time, are prohibitively expensive for many, if not most. Let’s jump in.

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.

Impressions: Unique Melody's Maestro V2

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.
