Last Week's Most Interesting

Not much happened last week in the IEM world, at least nothing seriously interesting. However, one IEM does seem to bring more attention, the NuForce NE-8 (and its headset brother NE-7M, but I am not that interested in headset). Nuforce is known as an amplifier manufacturer, but not much else, thus rises the question of how good their IEM can be. Well, from the look of it, I would make an educated guess that this IEM is probably OEM'ed by another company under NuForce's spec. It is a popular trend these days to have your own line of headphone with out the actual need of investing into facility for making headphone. Just gives a call to China and you will find plenty of quality OEM companies with decent headphone design waiting for buyer.

NuForce NE-8, from the amplifier company NuForce. It has been released for a few weeks now but only recently the supply seems to become more stable. MSRP US$69.00
