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: 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.

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: The Budget DAP Shootout

Hello! Welcome to another episode of the Bus Ride Impression!

Why am I so damn jolly? Because today we are going to do a bit of a change in the BRI as most would normally know it. Yeah, I know I have done a shootout before, but that was for the trinity of entry level IEMs offered by Knowledge Zenith. Today, however, is going to be mighty different as I thought it might benefit you, our dear readers, if we will try something a little different.

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7

I had this coming. Fact is, this is long overdue as I have always wanted to have this in one of my Bus Ride Impressions, but was unable to given the onslaught of items to review over the holidays. Plus I have no one to borrow this from. And the wallet already underwent several cardiac arrests due to the holidays so I practically have no budget for one. And the Chief Finance Officer (a.k.a. wife) will no longer allow me to get another one.

So I had to sit this one out. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION:Acquiring Gears

Hello and welcome to another edition of Bus Ride Impression! I have had several reviews tucked on me trusty belt and I thought of veering away just for the mean time from such as I cook more for the next episodes. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION:Acquiring Gears”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Aune M1S

I wanted an Aune M2S. I do. Badly. Too bad for me though, the missus isn’t a big fan of me toting yet another DAP for no business reasons at all (honestly, I only get away getting another DAP by asking the CFO of Aurem Fidelitatem and Cruz Residence by saying that I intend to add the DAP to our growing product line). Sometimes I am lucky, sometimes I am not. However, in the absence of an Aune M2S, I got lucky by scoring the newest DAP from Aune, the Aune M1S. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Aune M1S”
