Brent said: Like all the other true wireless earphones we’ve tried, the 1More E1026BT-Is don’t work sonic miracles, but their sound comes pretty close to the best of them at a fraction of the price.
The gist: A bargain in good wireless earphones.
Brent said: If you prefer audio gear that’s out of the mainstream -- that delivers an extra bit of realism, life, breath, soul, or whatever you want to call it -- and your taste is more towards classical and jazz, or lighter, folky singer/songwriter fare, then I’m pretty sure you’ll dig the Euterpe.
The gist: The tubes might seduce you.
Brent said: Sonically, the tonal balance is definitely on the soft side -- if you like mellower sound and find many headphones too grating to listen to for long, these will likely please you, but those who want to hear exciting, detailed treble probably won’t be captivated.
The gist: The noise canceling was a weak spot.
Brent said: A Melomania 2, with a more up-to-date Bluetooth chipset and a much broader selection of tips, would be a strong contender.
The gist: Very good but with some specific flaws.
Brent said: The IOs have that generally smooth sound we’ve heard from other Campfire Audio models, but with a little more treble and a little less bass.
The gist: Tuned for a specific type of listener.
Brent said: We love the way these headphones are designed, and we wish more companies would put this kind of effort and expense into the creation of their high-end headphones.
The gist: Works better for jazz than other genres of music.
Brent said: The AH-D7200s are gorgeous, well-made headphones, with high-quality drivers and a detailed sound.
The gist: Denon is still making solid headphones after all these years.
Brent said: With every review of headphones or earphones I write, I always find somethingto complain about. Sometimes it’s minor, sometimes it’s major, but there’s always something. Not this time.
The gist: The “10” rating on sound says it all.
