Denon's Music Maniac series of headphones has added two new IEMs and an app to its range. The AH-C120 and AH-C50 earphones expand the IEM quota, which was previously just the AH-C250 model holding its own against a bunch of over-ear headphones. The AH-C120s feature 11.5mm drivers tuned to a flat EQ (more on that in a minute...), while the AH-C50s pack 9mm drivers tuned to a flat EQ. Both sport a tangle-free cable with integrated mic, an adapter for Sony smartphones and multiple tips. Launched alongside the earphones is the Denon Audio app for iOS and Android. One for the audiophiles, it allows the creation and sharing of custom EQ curves with an integrated 1000-band equaliser and a range of EQ presets. So that's where the flat EQ comes in. The app is available now and the IEMs wi

DJing has changed in recent times. What was once about the manual beat-matching of 12"s from your big box of vinyl has become selecting MP3s on a Macbook running virtual DJ. What hasn't changed, however, is the look: big cans hung around the neck, with the occasional shoulder-up, head tilt to hear the beat in one ear. Pioneer's latest DJ-targeting IEMs, the DJE-2000 and DJE-1500, are looking to change that too. Both sets use large 9.4mm drivers and the DJE-2000 model has a hybrid 2-way driver that Pioneer claims provides clear and precise audio through the frequency spectrum. The back driver pushes the bass while the front driver takes care of mid and high frequencies. The IEMs come with multiple tips made from Comply foam and the speaker diaphragm is made from a ceramic powder to
This review will focus purely on the M4s sound as opposed to an unboxing with specs. First of all, for all of you new Brainwavz M4 owners – BURN IN your M4s – it vastly improves the sound! Straight off the bat you can hear that the M4s have bass, and decent bass at that. The sound of the bass can be compared to the M2’s bass: dense and strong with an obvious punch behind it. However, in terms of the level of bass, the M2s still reign supreme with much more of an ‘oomph’ behind the bass that’s very noticeable when swapping between the two. Some may find the M2’s bass to be a bit overpowering and heavy – this is where the M4s strike another pro point: the bass may be solid, however it by no means overpowers the other sounds. Read on after the break. Moving on to th

It is not often we get reviews on our reseller brand earphones like SoundMAGIC and DUNU (not to honk our own horn or anything, but we are enjoying the amassing Brainwavz reviews!), so when one comes in, especially from a forum member, and even more so when the review is a great read, we put a smile on our face and put the review on our blog site. Psilo110's review covers both the DUNU DN-11 Ares and the DUNU DN-12 Trident - the former being more analytical and "clinical" in detail, whilst the latter offers more of a "fun" sound. Read the full review here, and don't forget to leave comments or discuss further on the thread! "Along with over the top looks, you get top sound, and dollar for dollar the Dunu line has really impressed me"
