I agree, the hobby is quite a subjective one. With a market full of products for the hobby, it is quite challenging to find the right fit for an IEM that will suit your taste, even more in such cases wherein your preferred sound signature is not of the usual norms. Even in the case of common ones like the bassheads, there still is a distinction as to how one would like his IEM is tuned (some would like a very tight mid-bass or an extended sub-bass, pick your boat ladies and gentlemen).
In my case, it can indeed be challenging. Yes, I would like my IEMs a tad bright, but of course, I have this specific tuning on the higher frequencies that in a split can border beyond ticklishly sparkly or brutally piercing (of course I go for the first, who would want a piercing sound signature? — okay my apologies, some might, although I cringe at that, what the hey, some people says my preference can sometimes be a bit of an ear shredder). However, as I primarily look into the brightness of an IEM, I still would want it to have a bit of body to go along with the brightness and a good, decent amount of mids to keep the IEM glued into my ears for a few hours. I can be specific, but just like most enthusiasts, I would rather go and try to see if it fits my need.
Fortunately enough, I came across this nice little gem from Whizzer, the Haydn A15Pro. Whizzer can be considered somewhat a new brand in the market, but the A15Pro isn’t their first batter off the plate of the hobby as they initially released the A15 earlier. This was an offer made by Whizzer for me to take the A15Pro for a spin and see how well it fares and perhaps to be candid as to how I think about the IEM. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting too much out of the little devil, thinking that it might just be one of those lows-heavy IEM usually coming out in the market. Upon trying though, I will have to admit that my prejudice was unfounded: this devil is actually good!
Let me take you through the IEM and see how it might fit your taste as well. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Whizzer Haydn A15Pro”
