BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Trinity Audio Master

As we continue with the Trinity Audio week, we are now about to embark on reviewing the modular Master. Trinity Audio went to the direction of adding a little bit of pizzazz on this IEM by adding a bit more of customization through the included face plates. While some naysayers would say that it really is more of an improvement to the aesthetics of the IEM, it should be fancied by a lot as this allows a bit of distinction to the Master without having to go through buying multiple units just to have that flair of using a different looking one should you get tired of the design you are used to.

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Trinity Audio Vyrus V2

And it seems we are all in for a Trinity Audio week this week! This time, we are having the new Vyrus V2 in tow as we take it to the acid tests here at Bus Ride Impression.

The Vyrus V2 seemingly is a tamed down version of the original Vyrus if based on how it is built. However, with what Trinity Audio toned down in the V2 model in terms of physical design actually is compensated by efficiency and sound, so I will still say that it still is a major upgrade from how it was to how it is. True that Trinity Audio decided to take a few things out, but allow me to justify it with my point of view plus to add my take as to how much better it is from the first iteration.

Without further ado, let’s get on with it. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Trinity Audio Vyrus V2”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Trinity Audio Master 6

I will have to be truthful, but this took a while, but then again, it is finally here! The Master 6 by Trinity Audio has got to be one of the most reasonably priced IEMs given the number of drivers it contains (2 balanced armature drivers while the rest is Trinity Audio’s featured dual coil dynamic drivers) against its price. Pretty much brags a lot, doesn’t it, but this gem is not all about the drivers. It is more of what these drivers can deliver and how much it harmonizes to muster a really nifty listening experience.

The Master 6 was offered a year ago and was supposed to come out towards the end of the year, but due to some roadblocks encountered by Trinity Audio along the way, the Master 6 got push back several times. One would then expect that given these roadblocks, the IEM has got to sound really good.  Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Trinity Audio Master 6”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Meze 99 Classic

Meze 99 Classic. Ahh.

I came across the can late last year through a friend, Giuseppe Massara and he shared to me how well tuned this can is. Well in my case, I am not very familiar with the can, and since his brands including the Advanced and ATech Go are proven to be really quite well-tuned for the entry level mark, I kind of expected this to be no less given how Giuseppe’s ears are.

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Meze 99 Neo Classics

Twin reviews incoming!

Well of course I am not here to publish both in one go, I will have the other one saved for another day here at The Tech Kaiju. However, these two will have to be a pretty interesting review comparing their contrasts in spite of seemingly identical looks.

I give you: the Meze 99 Neo and Classics!

Both has their own personality given the material used, however in terms of dimensions and design they pretty much look alike. One would wonder then, what in the world got into Meze’s mind when they came up with identical cans instead of going for an opportunity to come up with a different design for each? Yes, they look pretty sexy, I be damned about it, but what really is different between these siblings apart from what is obvious? Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Meze 99 Neo Classics”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Bengkel Macro Edimun V3 (2.5mm TRRS)

I have become such a sucker for balanced termination. While single ended termination is much more common and convenient, balanced connection is definitely significantly cleaner. There are pros and cons, yes, but generally if done right, the connection should be able to yield immensely pleasurable experience.

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Focal Elear

I felt like a very giddy kid over the weekend with the loaner of the Focal Elear by Mikee Rodriguez. While there are contrasting feedback with the can, I still felt elated by the fact that I chanced upon a loaner of one of the highly raved cans recently released in the market. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Focal Elear”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Rock Jaw Audio Clarito

Hello! So this is some sort of a sequel of the Rock Jaw Audio Alfa Genus V2 review wherein we will get to tackle how its younger sibling, the Clarito, does in the newbie market. Sure there are some cheaper options for the said IEM, but let’s see how it does in the market proliferated by those cheaper alternatives. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Rock Jaw Audio Clarito”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Stax SRM-002

Portable electrostats. Wow.

Imagine the possibilities: a portable audio option that can yield some of the inherent qualities of the desktop comrades such as the Stax L500 and the Koss ESP950. Electrostats are known for its amazing speed of resolution, and are often enjoyed in desktop forms. With the SRM-002, we are being allowed with portable options of an erstwhile non-portable gear. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Stax SRM-002”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Rock Jaw Audio Alfa Genus V2

Hello and welcome to another installment of the Bus Ride Impression. As we find ourselves time to contemplate, I found this to be an opportunity to get myself to enjoy some really good music and gear and I happen to receive the Rock Jaw Audio Alfa Genus V2. This isn’t exactly a new IEM and has been out for about a year now, but this has sparked interest for some given the tuning options it comes along in the package. I suspected this to fit a lot of new audio enthusiasts in the market given it price and its capability so I am giving it a go in today’s review.
