Shiny: Radius and Sony

After the very popular W Pro (a.k.a. TWF11R), Radius decided to keep the heat on and announced the W Pro II. There isn't much spec at this point, but the DDM (dual diaphragm matrix) system is expected to be in the new IEM as well. The releases date is around December and we will know more about by then.

After the EX700 almost 2 years ago, Sony has been quite quiet in the IEM market - Not anymore. Here comes the MDR-EX1000, the new flagship that aim to put all its competitors to shock. Large 16mm driver, liquid crystal polymer diaphragm, magnesium housing, user tunable sound, removable cable and a gorgeous leather box are just for starter. The MSRP in Japan is estimated to be over US$700, most definitely not your budget option by a long shot. It should be released soon so it is time to break the piggy bank, that is if you have that big of a piggy bank in the first place. Do check out some closeup shots in its Japanese photo gallery, but Flash required.

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.
