Last Week's Most Interesting

With the rest of the world (okay, mainly just audiophiles' forum) still arguing whether Westone 3, Sennheiser IE8, UE Triple.fi 10 or Shure SE530 (or ...fill in the name you like...) is the current best universal IEM in the market, my attention switched to China as there was a new IEM being released in their local market last week. The thing about Chinese headphone is they never really make much name oversea (and usually limits to audiophiles' community), but don't let that fools you. The truth is we have seen many high quality headphones coming out of China over the last few years, and the trend will very likely to continue for a while.

Cyclone PR2, the second IEM under the Cyclone brand name. This IEM (along with its elder brother, the PR1, released early this year) is manufactured by the same company which made the Storm amp. Unfortunately it is unlikely we will see it being sold oversea as the company seems to limit its business to the China local market (as are many good headphone companies in China). MSRP RMB380 (*roughly US$55.60).

Beside getting free review samples, I don't work for or get paid by anyone to write anything on this website, or anywhere else in that matter. Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
